We Bundle Up in Blanket Scarves.

Happy March 1st Everyone! 

1/6th of the year is gone, vanished. Oh my. Technically March is the first month of Spring (though not until three weeks from now) but from our warm, bundled up looks and blanket scarves you would think otherwise. Vivian and I bundled up today during a Snow Storm (IRL it is snowing quite a bit, though these photos are from a few weeks ago, when we had another snow). Speaking of March and Spring, in my home-town where I was born in Albania, March 1st is a holiday of sorts because we celebrate Spring Day. We make these special types of cookies, some warm drinks with liquor on them, a salty bread pudding which is amazing and the night before we go outside around a big fire which symbolizes letting go of Winter. Also, we put red+white braided bracelets in our wrists (made of thread). The white symbolizes the peace and joy that Spring brings, while the red symbolizes good health and wealth. I bet you didn't know this. You will learn more fun facts about me throughout the week because it will be a very special week on this little old blog of mine. Please stay tuned. I know it will not disappoint you.

Vivian loves playing outside on the snow and we took these photos a few weeks ago before I headed to work around Valentine's Day, that is why we celebrated with a lot of Red (and some Hot Pink). My Scarf has Classic Americana Colors: Red, White and Blue, in an oversized Buffalo Plaid Print. It is so soft, big and well-made and I got it at Wal Mart. I paid full price for it (around 9 bucks!!) but they are now on clearance for around 5 bucks. I paired it with my new Olive Field Jacket from Old Navy which I wore over a Red Rose Feminine Blouse. On the bottom I have on Medium Wash Flares and my Black Leather Heeled Booties. I accessorized with super bright Neon Red Lipstick and my adorable Red Cable-Knit Beanie. Vivian matched me in her own Red Marled Beanie, her Hot Pink Heart-Print Puffer Coat, Gray+Coral Leopard Leggings, a Red Tutu and her White+Pink Sneakers. She has her own Blanket Scarf too. This Red+White Marled Infinity Scarf/Snood I originally purchased for me at Gap but Vivian has worn it more times than me, actually. It looks great on her. So, how are you and your tots bundling up during snow days? Wearing blanket scarves, too?
