"My favorite scarf"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love this scarf because it's beautiful, yet so light and thin that it fits in my purse, so I can have it with me at all times. Whenever I feel a little chilly, I just pull it out and wrap it around my neck for instant coziness.
