Wrapped Wednesday

Considering the holidays are really just around the corner (or a straight-shot to the weekend, actually), I thought I'd make my WW a festive one....sort of...
What is something every girl thinks about around this time?
Something that sparkles?!
Something that shines?!
I mean that in the sequin-glitter way, ladies, as I am not looking for any bling-bling this holiday season, reeeeelax! (You can breathe easy, too, SSB!)

The scarf I am highlighting today has a hint of sparkle and shine and still keeps me warm and cozy no matter the season. It's subtle enough to not look like I purchased it from a teeny-bopper store, but bold enough to make a statement no matter the outfit pairing.

Ombre Scarf from Express
I bought this as a birthday present to myself (don't we all do that?!) and have loved it dearly ever since. It literally makes any outfit look that much better. The two-tone effect gives it even more wearability, as well, so this bad boy is a front-runner on the wall of scarves. The others are jealous of its sparkly attitude, it's clearly a diva......
{I know the bottom two don't look like it, but the ends are looped through -- the effect usually looks very polished & not quite as plain as it is portrayed in the above photos, my bad!}

The "T" Tie -- Very simple but gives a very polished effect, too!
1. Wrap the scarf around your neck once (the classic way)
2. Bring both ends up into the loop and pull them through.
3. Adjust as needed!
(Sometimes I tie the loops after or even "twirl" the circular part to give a braided effect.) I said, simple but polished. This has been my recent go-to style!

I am hoping Santa is nice this year and brings me a new scarf or two for the collection. Perhaps my next "WW" will be a new scarf that was a Christmas can only hope ;)

Until next time, hope you're keeping warm and wrapped up this Wednesday.......................
