Plaid, Stripes and Metallics

I love scarves and usually wear different ones all the time – but because this winter is so cold, and my plaid blanket scarf is so warm, there hasn’t been much rotation in my closet!

But I have tried different ways of styling my scarf – including belting it and wearing it as a poncho/cape!

I’ve also been pattern-mixing, pairing my plaid scarf with striped sweaters.

I’m still pinching myself about my latest post for Yummy Mummy – I got the chance to interview Jane Seymour (Dr. Quinn LOL!) She’s so gracious and gorgeous – of course I HAD to ask her about her beauty secrets! Read my interview here.

I had a mini-shopping date with Elaine…I have a thing for trench coats, and I’m considering this GAP one – especially because it’s majorly on sale!

I’ve been loving metallic shoes for spring – I found these pretties at Winners. I was seriously tempted by the sandals but I thought that the heels would be a better investment (they were both priced around $40).

Although, looking at this picture…I might have to go back for the sandals after all!

EDIT: I made a quick graphic showing my favorite ways to wear a plaid blanket scarf! (link to red/maroon blanket scarf here)

Are you a Jane Seymour fan? Did you ever watch Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman?

    You can't go wrong with a blanket scarf. It's been so cold here too so I've been living in sweaters and scarves too. That's so exciting that you got to meet her- my mom used to watch that show all the time! I'll check out the interview now:)

    Love this outfit update and I think that is SO COOL that you got to meet and interview Jayne Seymour! She is a classic beauty icon in my book! Love those metallic pumps! Looks like we wear the same shoe size so feel free to send them my way if they don't work out! :)Gina – On the Daily Express
