Blue, Gray, and a Cowl-neck Scarf

I found another way to wear my Ivan Grundahl skirt. I got it on sale a few years ago, but even on sale, designer threads aren’t cheap. But my cost per wear is getting lower. I’m glad I bought this piece. I feel like it’s timeless.

Today I paired my skirt with denim, navy, and a pair of thrifted, microfiber Prada boots. In the past, I’ve worn it with fuchsia, green, and even dusty rose.

I have enjoyed my cowl-neck scarf a lot too. I was so happy when Rosalind, owner of Scarf City, made me a custom non-wool scarf. I find wool terribly itchy and I’m on a quest to not wear animal products of any kind. This cotton scarf did the trick!

Capris and a Cowl Neck

Look, it’s my Boodlebag again! I told you I use it a lot. Today I paired it with my favorite cowl neck top, a delicate cardigan, and my periwinkle Flexx sandals.

My top has a bit of a story to it. I found it when I was visiting my parents last summer, at a well-known Canadian store called Jacob. I bought it, packed it, and ruined the second I unpacked. It snagged on my suitcase zipper before I even had a chance to wear it once.

I called my mom, who graciously went back to the store, found the last medium, and mailed it to me here in Seattle. Disaster averted! Thanks Mom!
