Since I talk about them all the time - it is pretty obvious that I am obsessed with scarves. I'm always cold so I almost always need to have something on to keep me warm - no matter what the season. What I love about pashminas is that they are usually not too bulky so I can easily roll it up in my purse- this way I can have it on the freezing cold train during the summer but not have to carry a heavy extra item with me all day long. What I want to focus on today is a decorative pashmina - something practical, beautiful and unique. You can wear it wrapped like a shawl, around the neck like a scarf, or even around your head as a hair covering. The possibilities are endless!
I usually wear my pashmina when its a bit warmer out (If its below 30 degrees I definitely need a blanket scarf). I find this one particularly beautiful because I absolutely adore the combination of red and gold - it gives such rich and luxe feeling. Since the butterfly motif is a bit more delicate, I really like to pair it with a "tougher" piece like a leather jacket. Whats really awesome about this pashmina is that I found it at Goodwill! It only cost me a few dollars and has been a staple in my wardrobe since I bought it! I strongly suggest doing some vintage shopping if you are looking for a piece like this. However, below I've listed some options that I think are beautiful and maybe one of these will become your perfect pashmina!
Animal motifs can be a super unique way to have some fun with patterns. I love peacocks because they are so elegant and gorgeous so I'm featuring this beautiful piece. This midnight blue and gold scarf is a steal at only $9.95! Buy it Here!
The Look for Less
Most of the pieces above are pretty affordable but I wanted to find a scarf similar to mine that was under $9. This red and gold silk-blend scarf looks and feels rich but is only $8.99! Buy it Here!
