It’s officially scarf season! And anyone who knows me, knows I love scarfs. I will wear them year round but love chunky knits for fall and winter. Yes, I love scarfs because they keep me warm, but I also love scarfs because they are easy to throw on with any outfit and take the outfit a little further. Throwing on a scarf over a sweater (chunky or not) makes the whole #ootd just a little more chic. With scarves you have endless possibilities. They come in different patterns, materials and most of them can be styled several different ways.

I have fallen in love with scarves from Dottie Q. Not only are they in beautiful knits, but the colors are just perfect. I love this grass color that I have since green is every where for Fall fashion. Of course you can get your regular style infinity scarf from Dottie Q but she offers something a little more exciting, a scarf necklace. This scarf (styled above) can be worn several different ways; we all know I love something that can be styled numerous ways. The scarf can be worn long with the wrap part at the nape of the neck or showing for a textural view. The scarf can be worn layered just like you would a necklace. You can take half of the scarf and loop it around your neck. Wearing the scarf long and layered actually allows for you to wear necklaces for an even more layered and textural look. Or you can double the whole scarf for a bundled up look. The possibilities are endless with this scarf.

Dottie Q scarves are all handmade and available on Etsy or on her website. She also offers boot socks and hand muffs. All of her pieces are as eco-friendly as possible, and she uses recycled mailing supplies. The best part of this shop; Dottie Q donates a percentage to Tenth Life Cat Rescue in St. Louis. You know that appealed to the cat lover in me!

I don’t know what I love about this #ootd more. The floral dress? The hat? The flannel? The mixing of unusual prints to make an outfit I love? Fashion is supposed to be fun. And I think this outfit of the day is pretty fun. The lumberjack trend, or flannel is once again very popular. I have to be very careful not to look like a man while styling flannel because most cuts are not flattering to the female body. So the perfect way to style it for me is to throw it over a dress, especially a floral dress. The combo reminds me of the 90’s trend but is also pulled together. To make the outfit a little more “grown up” I added some simple riding boots and a hat. This chic look is somewhat of a style risk but so easy to pull off!

What style risks are you taking this Fall?
