yarn plus yarn

A couple weeks ago, our lovely city was crowned icy, slushy, snowy epicenter of the polar vortex. This has since passed, but it seems we are bunkering down for a wintry long spell nonetheless. 

 earwarmer + cowl scarf: c/o yarn plus yarn 
rings: h+m // sweater: originally nordstrom, thrifted (similar here) // dress: free people // boots: target 

When I tried on this earwarmer & cowl scarf from Yarn Plus Yarn this week, I was honestly shocked at the difference in fit, softness, warmth -- from the ones I usually buy. These stood up to the 0 and under test, cats. No small feat. 

And, ah, the bow design on the earwarmer. It's just perfectly suited for me, and a keen representation of why I love cold-weather dressing (read: bows, and all things excessively feminine). It's so, how do you say...doll-up-able!

And that scarf. This blue shade is the stuff of magic. I think I'm going to make it my official hue of the year because just like mustard, it somehow...works...like a neutral? Crazy but true. It jams with white and black and beige and gray and all the non-neutrals in equal measure.

So, Yarn Plus Yarn! Support a small business this Christmas, and treat your own sweet self to something, or snatch something up for your mum or best! (Ah. I know. I'm an American who says mum. It's a thing I do.)

P.S. As this issue was going to press (har, har) -- I saw the lovely ladies of Yarn Plus Yarn are doing a Facebook giveaway! Go like their page, and find the post from Nov. 23rd to enter. They're giving away a $50 gift card (aaand a cute journal, photo frame, nail polish!). Get on that, kids! Now!
