So, I have been saving for this Burberry scarf for months. I first fell in love during last summer’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale, but with our wedding a month away, I just could not justify the purchase at that time. Since then, it’s been on my wish list and I’ve diligently been putting away some extra pennies for this purchase–counting down with my girlfriends at work along the way! Needless to say, it was a sweet feeling when I was finally able to pull the trigger. It ended up coming in the day before we left for Seattle, and I was so excited.
A couple things I want to mention about this particular scarf: first, it’s super light, which was appealing because [with a splurge piece like this] I wanted to be able to wear it year round. Also, because it’s a wool silk blend, it keeps you warm without being itchy. It’s incredibly soft and luxurious. I chose one of the classic trench prints simply because it’s made entirely of neutrals and goes with anything. It can be worn as a traditional scarf (as shown above), as a wrap, or even draped around your neck and belted. Overall it’s not something I would’ve thought to splurge on without seeing in person, but it is so beautiful and comfortable and easily a classic piece that I’ll have forever: the perfect accessory.
