I came across this scarf recently at TJ Maxx – I thought it was a unique and very convenient way to combine two of the most popular fall patterns, houndstooth and plaid. I actually wore the houndstooth side out for our family photo sesh and flipped it to reveal a mixture of the two for these outfit shots. You really can’t go wrong with plaid or houndstooth this time of year and I love the addition of red. I’ve been looking for a red bag for ages now and have been having trouble finding one I love that is within my price range. I don’t know if you guys remember me asking if you thought it would be weird if I bought my cobalt bag in red. So after reading all your assurances that I wasn’t crazy and waiting a few months for good measure, I decided to stop obsessing and just buy the bag already. I figured the wait would have eliminated any possible impulsive buying and would have allowed me to really mull things over. Anyways, weird or not, I love this bag and I don’t regret having two of the same!
