Happy Thanksgiving, American readers! I’m still recovering from the coma inducing food binge of yesterday, so I’m thinking that something with a really forgiving waistline is in order for today’s outfit. The day before Thanksgiving, T. and I took a day trip to Salzburg and spent a considerable amount of time at the Christmas market there. Because we did drag ourselves away from the food and the Glühwein occasionally, I wore my flat boots to be able to comfortably walk around as much as needed. I wore my skinnies tucked into boots, since I’m really loving this look this winter. Sal did a great post on the art of tucking just recently, so if you’re having doubts or need some pointers on how to approach this trend, do check out her most helpful post!

I then wore this tank top as a vest (a trick I tried once previously) and intertwined two scarves for a cozier and fuller effect. I really liked the two-scarves look and think it would be really fun to try with a patterned scarf and a solid, or for the more daring, with two patterned scarves to create a really visually interesting result. Is this something you’ve tried out before?

And for a final note on the hair, I’ve been loving the “Dutch braid” to the side look, as rocked most fabulously by Julie of Orchid Grey. For this windy day trip, I pulled the braid and my remaining hair into a topknot. If you’re wondering how to do a topknot, check out Kyla’s great how-to video. Kyla makes me wish I had straight hair so that I could recreate her amazing bangs-and-topknot look, just see her great site Blue Collar Catwalk for case in point.

And now, I leave you with some shots of the Salzburger Christkindlmarkt, while I try to figure out what I can still fit into today. Oh, delicious Thanksgiving dinner, how you weak havoc on my waist line…. S.

  1. I love the intertwined scarves and your hair! I feel like mine is still a little too short in some of my layers to really get a look like this.

    I feel you on needing a forgiving waistline today. For me, though, the real downfall is eating 5 days worth of Thanksgiving leftovers in 2 days. Better go for a run before I start grading papers this morning….

    I really enjoyed your style guide to Salzburg on Glamourous Grad Student. I was an undergraduate there and seeing this post makes me quite homesick. I now live and work in Ireland (via a Freiburg to do my PhD) and I think my style has really changed with the locations. I remember Salzburg as very conservative (I hardly ever wore jeans…)and am probably more edgy now as a lecturer than I was as an undergraduate.

    Love the site, by the way! I find the topic of appearances and academia endlessly fascinating.

  3. Wonderful! I just returned from Vienna, which is also brimming with Xmas markets and overflowing with Glühwein. It’s a beautiful time of the year to visit Austria.

    Cute pictures! So pretty and colorful…

    I really like the double scarf idea, I might give it a try next winter.

  5. Megan says:

    wow that double scarf thing is a great idea… I might try that sometime.

    Also, I love seeing these pictures from the area you’re in… the market looks so beautiful!

  6. A-C says:

    I love the double scarf idea. I’ll have to try it with a patterned and solid scarf. thanks!

  7. i love the black and fuschia, and i love the tank-as-vest look. looking gorgeous, as always!

    i haven’t tried the two scarves look…i bet it’d look great with the two looped together around your neck, too…and very cozy!

  8. Clare says:

    Oh, I love the multiple scarves look. I’ve seen it before on people, but not quite so interwoven. This is a great look!

  9. Nadine says:

    Love the scarves! If only I was in the same season (hemisphere) so I could try it immediately . . .
