Cozy Zippers

Scarf - H and M; Top and Jacket - Zara

As I mentioned here, I had been wanting a dress form to showcase my own outfits for future posts. Coincidentally a friend of my mom's was giving away her dress form around the same time and my mom immediately took her up on the offer.  When my parents came to visit a few weeks ago, they kindly brought me the dress form so I could begin to execute my vision.  For my first dress form feature, I wanted to showcase a new scarf I purchased at H and M last week.  When I walked into the store, I immediately saw the 2 way zipper scarf on a mannequin and began searching the store for this gem.  While I couldn't find it anywhere, a lovely saleswoman saved my day by leading me to the only scarf left for sale in the store.  The scarf is incredibly cozy to wear since it offers a slouchy cowl neck with enough material to also act as a thick shawl.  The timing of this purchase was absolutely perfect since we had an early snowfall in NYC this past weekend.   For this post, I decided to style the scarf with a shiny new top I bought at Zara a few weeks ago as well as my standby grey leather jacket.  I love how the juxtapose of the materials create a very chic and warm fall outfit.  I would pair this with black skinny jeans or layer over a tulle dress or skirt (similar to this). I hope you enjoy the dress form posts as there will be lots more to come!
