The last time I wore this dress, I went for a neutral look. This time around, I decided to add some color with this cozy scarf that provides a fun twist on the iconic Hudson’s Bay stripe. I first discovered the Hudson’s Bay Company after a trip to Toronto a few year back, and I’ve admired items from the brand’s signature collection ever since. I lucked out and scored this scarf for a song on eBay.

After adding a swipe of red lipstick and a navy wool cap, I was all set to head out last Friday for a trek through Central Park followed by an early dinner with friends. Winter in NYC has been fairly mild so far (knock on wood), and I’ve been savoring every moment of it. I know it won’t last forever, but for now I’m enjoying the fact that I can wear all my favorite winter outfits without being buried under mounds of layers. Let’s hope this keeps up!
