I got this Rainbow Pashmina Paisley scarf compliments of Iristy the other day and paired it with my new faux fur leg warmers (I am currently obsessed with Russian styles, so I’ve been looking for a lot of Instagram inspiration on that). My mother-in-law looked at me and said, “Aww, you look like an Eskimo!” Not too long ago Rob and I were watching an episode of Malcolm in the Middle where Francis comes home with his new Eskimo wife to show his parents. Rob said I could play an Eskimo, and I wasn’t really sure how to take it. I do like snow and igloos and wolves as my ride, but that doesn’t mean a thing…
After looking at these photos, I immediately thought of a somewhat drab and toned down Rainbrow Brite. This scarf is better than how it looks on the website! It looks short on their storefront, but this reached down to just above my knees! I am 5’5″ (of course with these wedges on, I am about 5’8″), so you can see how wide and long this scarf actually is. I’ve been avoiding adding anything too bright to fit in my wardrobe’s new direction. I was afraid that this scarf might clash with that, but it really didn’t. This scarf is as sexy as Bollywood.
I forgot to take photos of the other side of this scarf. It wasn’t even mentioned on Iristy’s site that this is completely reversible. On the one side, it is rainbow. On the other, it is tan. It is equally magnificent. The texture of this is like velvet. I love it! This was the outfit I had on underneath. I like to wrap big scarves around me and fastening them down with a belt just like this.

It was really pretty out the past couple of days with the exception of the wind. I wouldn’t have had to wear a coat without it. I was going to wear a hat to match my outfit, but I quickly realized that that was a terrible idea. I’ve had one of my favorite childhood watches (Baby G) get flushed down the toilet once (among other things), and I am not going to lose a hat (to the sky toilet) today.
Though (right now) the weather is frightful, I hope your Christmas was delightful! Before you go, do check out Cameron Miquelon’s 2012 closeout post featuring some of the coolest bloggers. ;-)

Right after reviewing some beautiful light scarves to wear all year round, here are trendy scarves that you can wear for this winter. Let me introduce you to Adi Bakshi scarves on a fashion site Coolil. I know a lot of the more crafty girls like to make these on their own, but for relatively inexpensive scarves like these, I’d rather just buy one. It saves me time and effort that I can put into other things—which is my philosophy for many things. It truly worked for me, but it was hard to break the habit of DIY.
So here’s your chance to win a cute and quality scarf with the color of your choice by Adi Bakshi. There will be 3 winners with 1 scarf each! If you don’t win, hey just buy one—it’s easy on your pocket! Below is the video tutorial by Adi Bakshi, and beneath that is the entry form for the giveaway.
