I bought this scarf at Zara in Cardiff, more or less on a whim. It’s a cozy and versatile scarf, to be sure, but I thought of it as more utilitarian than anything. But holy moly, does it ever draw comments. Of all of the wildly printed, brightly colored scarves I own and wear, I would never have pegged this one as the crowd favorite. Go figure.

Do you have anything in your closet that gets lots of unexpected praise?

It was 50 degrees on Sunday. AMAZING. All of the snow melted, and everyone in the Twin Cities did a dance of joy. Now it is 20 degrees and we’ve got snow again. Joy-dancing has mostly ceased. This outfit got worn for a day of weekend errands that included visiting George’s to pick up some leather dyeing supplies. Project post to come as soon as I can get it together!

I’d been ogling a few Curator pieces, and was lucky enough to receive this Georgie Hoody from the amazing team at Shop Adorn. Organic cotton, thick and cozy, supercool design … Georgie’s got it all. I love the super long ribbed cuffs and asymmetric zipper. Check out the other Curator pieces over at Adorn. And! If you’re shopping today or tomorrow you can get 25% off Nicole’s picks, which includes the Georgie hoody!

Like many kids, I grew up making rainbow tie dye shirts at summer camp, and associated them with youth. And eventually Deadheads. But now I totally dig black tie dye prints, and this one is no exception. Kinda looks like BADASS SNOW. Or maybe polluted snow. OK, let’s step off that train of thought …

My poor sparkly leggings have now been worn and washed so many times that they’re somewhere between leggings and tights. I’ve ordered the pair I linked to above – these high-waisted ones – and am hoping they’ll have the same subtle sparkle. My cotton leggings just get pilly and gross after a couple of years of wear, but these seem to be getting gradually thinner. Eventually, I guess, they will BECOME tights. A most unexpected transformation.
