I really enjoy going to events where I’m required to dress up a little. It could be the Southern Belle in me, but I can’t help but get excited when I know I’m going to an event that requires a little more effort than the usual jeans and t-shirt ensemble. As I mentioned in a post earlier this week, I was sick all of last week and didn’t have the opportunity to get out to take pictures like I normally do. Thankfully, I had backup outfit photos from my niece’s graduation in May that I hadn’t used yet.
A while back, I was gifted a beautiful silk scarf from La Fiorentina NYC, an accessories company founded in Florence, Italy in 1991. I couldn’t wait to wear it but knew I didn’t want to wear this scarf in the same way I normally wear my other scarves. It’s so big that I wanted to use it as a shawl instead. When it comes to wearing summer scarves, the important thing is the fabric. How heavy is it? Warmer temperatures most certainly require light fabrics. When I was in NYC I saw quite a few people wearing scarves so it’s not uncommon at all to wear one during the summer but I would advise that you find one in the lightest fabric possible. My new La Fiorentina scarf is very light. It provided me with just enough coverage to get rid of the chill of being inside the Georgia Dome, but was light enough for me to continue wearing while outside. I love the bright yellow color of this scarf!

La Fiorentina has a great variety of scarves, wraps, ponchos and other accessories. The prices are a bit up there, but they’re very lovely. My mother actually tried to steal this one from me. LOL!
Have you ever heard of La Fiorentina? Do you wear summer scarves?
Until next time!
