Show off Your Scarves!! (Even When You're Not Wearing Them)


This post is all about scarves--my favorites and ways to display them:

Maybe it's just me, but I think scarves are amazing. They can transform an outfit, and they feel so lux and comfy all snuggled up around your neck:) Maybe it's because I grew up in Florida wear you look pretty ridiculous wearing a winter scarf just about any time of year (although, I have tried to convince my friends that light-weight, cotton or linen scarves are perfectly acceptable).

Anyway, if you've been reading my blog posts fairly reguralarly, you'll notice that not only do I love wearing beautiful things, I also love displaying them. Its so nice to get to look at my favorite possesions all the time, even when I'm not using them!!

Here's what I do with my scarf collection...you'd be surprised how many you can pack into these things:



This is a large hurricane lamp I got from pottery barn. Yes, they are meant for candles, but they are the perfect cylinders for see through storage.  As you probably know already....it SUCKS when you can't find your favorite scarf because its in a drawer underneath a billion others.  This makes it so easy to see your collection. What;s also really cool about this, is that you can pull from either the top of the pile or the bottom, since the little gold trivet is removable. Not only is this totally functional, I also think it looks really cute, especially with my favorite hat on top;)
Now for some of my picks for this season:

  1. I love scarves and I live in FLORIDA...may I just say..thumbs up on the idea for display and safe keeping. I have the exact same cylinder from Pier One and I have candles in it, but it's out of place in my home....NOW I know what to do with it!!!!

  2. LOL what a funny way to store scarves. I don't have that many because I live in FL, but I hang up my pretty silk ones on hooks in my room to give it some color.

  3. Okay, that is an adorable way to store scarves. Knowing my luck, the one I want that day is right in the middle. I know where I can get one of those, I might have to make a trip this weekend for a new scarf holder! I love creative ideas like this. (Now tell me how I can organize all my shoes...)

  6. That's SUCH a great idea. I have scarves galore (despite really not needing them, living in L.A.) and never know how to organize them. Thanks!
