The unexpected comes from nowhere – it’s why it’s called unexpected.
I have a few. Those standards go-tos. You know, the ones you reach for without really thinking. Obviously, my Polish scarf is on that list. As is a gorgeous black one from Kish & Evie – you’ll be seeing that a lot this Winter.
But a new go-to is this tapestry scarf from HoneyBea. I found HoneyBea at the Port Dover Arts festival. She stopped me and asked about my dress, and we bonded over our mutual love of Spell & the Gypsy Collective. I fell in love with her stylings too. Very boho, but completely geared towards our cold Canadian climate. The cardigans are killer and I definitely want to add one to my wardrobe at some point. But at that moment in time, this tapestry scarf caught my eye.
It’s made from recycled fabrics, and stitched together with love and care. There’s nothing better than a beautiful piece that is locally made and recycled too.
The heavy structure of the fabrics makes it really warm, and the patterns all work well together to create a lovely neutral blend; so it can go with anything.
I notice that in the last few posts there’s a distinct trend. It’s because when travelling *grandparents on both sides for Christmas* and when I feel a bit sleepy/grumpy *which I have been* I tend to go for the uniform that I mentioned on Monday.
Yup, that’s the explanation. Even with tights, it’s just really hard to get dressed in dresses when it’s cold. Plus somehow, pants are easier when you’re a grumpy-pants.
What do you go for as grumpy-pants clothes?
A few nights ago, my girl was crying in her sleep. I went into her room to investigate why:
“Shhhh, why are you crying,” I asked as I stroked her hair.
In her sleep she answered, “I don’t want to wear a hat!”
“You don’t want to wear a hat?”
“Well, you’re in bed, so you don’t have to wear a hat, okay?”
She nodded and nuzzled into her blankie.
This whole conversation in her sleep.
