Colorblock Scarf (20% net proceeds to go NBCF)
I am a Zeta Tau Alpha, and every October when I was in college, we would hold special events and fundraisers to support the ZTA Foundation (which benefitted Breast Cancer Awareness). So not only is this cause something I've been a part of supporting in the past, but it has also affected my grandmother and great aunt, which brings the cause even closer to my heart.
This year, Talbots, one of my favorite brands is partnering with the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Talbots designed this gorgeous wool blocked stripe blanket wrap of which 20% of net proceeds throughout the month of October, will go to NBCF to provide the tools for early detection and education.The scarf is available in stores and online now through October 31st, so start shopping for a great cause!
Today I have styled the wrap for a weekend out and about. The scarf is under $100 and is woven in gorgeous shades of pink and then also has pops of navy and burgundy, too! It's 80% wool, and as you can see in the photos above, it's quite large, so it would be the perfect travel companion, too! It has started to get chilly here in Pittsburgh, so this is exactly the type of outfit you can find me in on the weekends. This cashmere sweater is one of my favorites. I have it in several colors and just love the way it fits. It's great on its own, but also is the perfect piece for layering since it is not bulky!
The jeans I am wearing are amazing-- seriously, I had no idea that these existed and am SO glad to have a pair now. They're stretchy and beyond comfortable, but not too much of a legging that it looks like you're not wearing actual jeans. The fit is wonderful and the waist is high, but not too high-- perfect for tucking in or letting your shirt hang loose! I am wearing a size 4p. I would have never chosen a petite, because at 5'6", I've never been considered 'petite', but I just love the fit and length on the petite size much better. Also, if you are in-between sizes, I'd suggest sizing down as they are very stretchy-- I really liked the size 2 fit the best, but it was out of stock when I went into the store!
