Scarves and holiday season (Giveaway !!!)

December 21, 2016 26 Comments

The one accessory you truly shouldn’t do without as the chill sets in the air, is a scarf. The scarf is one of my best friends during the holiday season, and picking up the right one, not only keeps me  warm but also spices up the outfits.

Scarf and a black dress for winter

Winters generally aren’t great for accessorizing, since you’re clumped under layers anyways, so I always take the chance to play with my scarf matches to fill in the void. This time, I was mighty excited when Emky Shop reached out to collaborate on scarf designs just when these thoughts were on my mind. My regular readers would know that I try to collaborate with local, unique upcoming boutiques whenever the opportunity rises. And Emky scarves turned out to be a perfect fit. They are headquartered in San Diego and have a beautiful collection of printed scarves.

The Indian girl in me has a soft corner for a good print and vivid colors, so I selected the elephant printed scarf  which has cute tiny elephants running amok on the print along with colorful geometric shapes on a charcoal base color.  The patterns are bold, yet have a classic touch which makes this a timeless buy.  I’ve tried slipping these on while heading out for a casual meet-up right out of work, and they pair great with almost anything I’ve been wearing through the day. Denim, dresses, a shirt and a blouse, you name it! The scarves in the Emky collection have a great variety of unique prints and are made out of highest quality of silks in gorgeous colors.

Another notable thing about Emky shop is that all their products are made in the USA. They are a part of change campaign which support local businesses to grow manufacturing jobs. So ladies, do check out their store and show some love to the domestic local labels. They also maintain a blog which offer styling tips and endless ways to wear a scarf, in case you are in a bind (pun completely intended)

    I actually love having a scarf in my bag even if I don’t end up wearing it for most of the day because sometimes you just need that extra accessory to pick your outfit up. I’m loving the print of your scarf and the ways you’ve worn it!

    Adore the fact that the colourful scarf adds a fun touch to the otherwise dull looking black ensemble. Hope you enjoy your holiday weekend ahead!

    This is the coldest winter we have had in LA since I moved here, so using a scarf has now become an essential in this otherwise warm city. Love how you styled the simple looks with a fun scarf!

    10, but your articles can get into top 10. You should find the right longtail keywords before you write an article.
