When I first wrote this post, it was cold and damp in my neck of the woods, so I went looking for winter warmers to feature in the day’s post. I wanted to find some cuddly hats and gloves and neck warmers and mittens. Instead, I was drawn to these gorgeous and colorful silk scarves by Velezhki, in Toronto. Scarves are a staple in my wardrobe, because they let me dramatically change my outfits without actually buying new clothes. Picked thse summery colored scarves to fight my chill, because, with a little imagination, they can do more than change your outfit. They can change your point of view — and magically change the season.
This Sunshine Yellow silk scarf will bring a ray of brightness into gloomy gray winter days. Can’t you just feel the warm glow of sunshine on your cheeks?
The orange, yellow, hot pink, and magenta colors in this scarf, Summer Sunset, are a perfect antedote to fall and winter doldrums. I feel warmer just looking at it. And, if you’re just not feeling summer right now, here’s another way to look at this scarf. It carries the colors of a roaring fireplace fire. Just hold out your hands and you’ll feel it warming your fingers.
