The holidays will soon be upon us, which means it’s just about time to get started on buying gifts. So, over the next few weeks I’ll be posting a 12-part series featuring my picks for chic presents. For my first 12 Days of Christmas Shopping post, I’ve rounded up a dozen of the most brightly hued, deliciously warm winter scarves.
Ever since this beauty popped up everywhere last year, plaid blanket scarves have been the neckwear du jour for the sartorially inclined. It seems that the blogging community selects one It Scarf at a time, everyone rushes to buy it, and it sells out immediately. Accordingly, I’ve selected 12 scarves that are each worthy of their own obsessions—and aren’t sold out yet.
This festively striped Zara scarf is definitely at the top of my Christmas list, and I’m thinking of adding this ASOS option to my closet before the holiday celebrations begin. I love giving and receiving scarves as gifts, so hopefully this inspires your shopping this year!

If you’re like me, you’ve spent hours wondering what your life would look like if you owned a pair of 5050 boots. The iconic over-the-knee boot is a perennial favorite of celebrities, bloggers and off-duty models alike. It’s also a bit of out of my price range. So I dedicated a good few weeks to hunting down the best alternative, taking into consideration value, quality and similarity to my dream pair.
What I found was actually much better that I was hoping for. At just under $100, these Chinese Laundry boots fulfill all of my requirements. Since I ordered them online, I was a little worried about the quality of the suede, but in person, I’m very happy with the suppleness and substance of it. With a low stacked heel, tall silhouette and slightly rounded toe, this boot really echoes the 5050 in every way. All in all, I’m extremely happy with this purchase and plan to wear them all winter long.
