But To Loiter By The Shore

This scallop neckwarmer by Janelle Haskin is rather like wearing a cozy straightjacket. Actually my father was teasing me about wearing it around the house, then he touched it and declared "wow, that's soft!" It was a quick conversion. I really like the way it looks with my military-inspired black coat; a quiet play of soft and hard elements.

I am in love with that scallop neckwarmer! Its amazing. The pattern looks very victorian.
Perfect for the weather we're having right now.

The skirty look of the military coat, though, still gives it a very feminine feel when you combine them together.

It's a juxtaposition, but also a parallelism at the same time!

I love it. It's very granny but with a modern, youthful twist. I'd wear it. And I don't do crochet/yarn. As always, you look charming.

You look so warm and fuzzy by the water in your scalloped neckwarmer!

That is such a pretty cape/neckwarmer. It seems perfect for just staying cozy on a cold day.

I love how many different coloured tights you have! so fantastic.

also how do you do your hair like that? Just braid and pin up?

I love the colours of this outfit very much. I laughed about the straightjacket comment - but to me it looks stylish and warm...

I LOVE the neckwarmer! This whole outfit is just lovely Winter perfection! And the pictures are gorgeous too.

My husband is making me a neckwarmer like this one...only I was having him make it in grey...now I think I want one in cream. Hmmm! Lovely!

Your photos are really beautiful today. I love pairing soft textures with tough ones. It's more interesting that way.

Ah, a friend of mine has been wearing something similar to that and I was hoping to hunt one down eventually...
