End Notes:

(Excuse my dazed look. I need another cup of morning tea.)

The very sweet Baby Ette sent us a couple of “Neck Scapes” to try this week. While A. triple looped her purple jersey one earlier this week, I decided that this pale yellow fleece neck scape was perfect for adding a little bit of cozy style (and texture) to a library day outfit.

Like A., I was initially a little overwhelmed. But it’s ridiculously fun to stand in front of the mirror and loop, scrunch, pull, and comb this scarf out. By wearing it looped only twice, I created more of a collar or cowl neck effect which — like the gray and yellow color scheme — kept things simple but not boring. Having interesting, non-fussy accessories like this should be a staple for library-bound scholars everywhere.

We’ll be giving away one of Baby Ette’s neck scapes tomorrow, so be sure to check back and enter for your chance to win!

    That scarf looks like spaghetti… in the best fashiony way possible. I love these neck scapes you’ve been rockin’! The combo of baby yellow and gray is great… I have a lot of gray in my wardrobe and am always looking for ways to liven my outfits up.
