Sweater: Old Navy, Coat: BB Dakota c/o Lulu's, Jeans: Old Navy, Alpaca Scarf: c/o Faire Collection, Boots: Target
There is just something about a cozy scarf and a warm coat that makes me happy inside. Most of my friends feel completely different, but I'm actually excited for the snow this year! Maybe it's because I haven't had to get up early to shovel my driveway and scrape ice off of my windows yet...yeah, I'm not looking forward to that part. But I really love staring outside at a fresh snowfall, when the world appears to be perfectly quiet and peaceful. My kids seem to always choose snowball fights and snowman building over snuggling up with a blanket and drinking hot chocolate...and that's perfectly alright with me too!
I know this handmade scarf will be spending many snow days with me this winter. I had never worn anything made from alpaca wool before...my goodness, it's so warm and comfy! It was sent to me by Faire Collection, a company that partners with artisans around the world, trying to help better the lives of people from impoverished communities. I love businesses that try to make a difference and really concentrate on their social impact! Knowing that an artisan made this scarf by hand makes it even more special...it makes me appreciate the item a lot more than most of the other things in my closet!
