I’d like to introduce you to my new scarf.
New scarf, internet people.
Internet people, new scarf.
I decided, this year was going to be the year of buying one of those oversized, oh-so-comfy looking blanket scarf things. And I did. I picked this one up from ASOS, for, I think, €25–could have been €35–either way it was more money than I’ve ever spent on a neck warmer.
But, it’s amazing. It’s really fucking big, but it’s amazing. I mean, it’s so big that I can’t see my shoes or the zip on my coat to do it up, but it’s so cosy and useful. Currently, I like to use it as a cushion when we travel, as a shawl type thing at work to keep my shoulders warm and as a scarf. It also functions as a neck brace, since it’s so big I can hardly move my head in it.
But, it’s amazing and who cares if I can’t see to walk down the stairs or I keep inhaling bits of fluff, when I’m so warm and comfy this wintertime.
I could have bought a smaller one, but in my defence, I’m not really a centimetres person, I’m more of a feet and inches kind of woman. So, when the website said it was 180cm squared, I just assumed I was also about that size and it would be fine.
I’m not 180cm at all. I’m 5’2″, and my scarf is taller than me.
I don’t think I’ve typed anything that has sounded so pathetic.
But, I care not. I have a scarf and I’m so warm and la-la and I’m so ready for winter. Until I go to New York and freeze my balls off, but I’m so ready for mild Belgian winters with a hint of snow.
Do you like my new scarf? Any other ideas for uses? I need to get my monies worth.
