We’re especially thrilled for Saturday’s sale, since it coincides so nicely with this week’s Goodwill Gem. Our Lauren headed to her local Goodwill with style on her mind and she ended up with an accessory that’ll turn heads long into autumn. Take a look at this week’s great Goodwill Gem: Spring-to-Fall Scarves.
Scarves aren’t just for winter. In fact, sometimes they’re even more fun when the temperatures start to rise. They become an item of choice, not necessity, when it’s gorgeous out. Spring (which is finally, FINALLY here!) is the perfect time to bring out scarves in lighter fabrics, brighter colors, and cool patterns.
The sun is shining more often and the temps are consistently above freezing, but that doesn’t mean we’re heading into summer just yet. For those nights out and early morning commutes, it helps to have a little something to fight off that pre- and post-dawn chill, and a light, bright scarf is the perfect thing. The brilliant, warm colors are exactly what you need to usher in the spring and summer months as things start to heat up, and the gorgeous pattern (along with those vivid hues) will instantly jazz up absolutely any outfit, no matter how plain or simple.
A multipurpose accessory, you can tie up a pretty piece of fabric – like this brilliant pink, red and gold scarf I found recently at my local Goodwill – in any number of ways. Throw it loosely around your neck, or knot it or wind it to seriously cover any bit of exposed skin, rock it tied up around your head, or even wear it like a belt around your waist with a flowing maxi skirt.
Here, I’ve put together a basic, but oh-so-comfy, go-to weekday look with skinny pants and a flowing blouse (my all-time feel-good favorite combo, day in and day out). Though practical, that pants + blouse uniform can quickly turn ho-hum without accessorizing. Luckily, a scarf like this is one a super-simple way to take a look like this from blah to beautiful in an instant.
