Yesterday was a good day. The sun was shining, Cody had the day off, and we had a great day together just our little family. We hit up Kneaders for lunch, which is always a fabulous idea. Tomato bisque in a sourdough bread bowl with a fudge brownie for dessert = amazing lunch. All three of those things are on my top favorite food list.
Aren’t these two boys just the cutest? I love them.

Today is our first post in my newest Bits & Pieces of Ashley series, and we’re going to talk about my love for SCARVES! Wahoo! I thought scarves would be a good topic for our first post in this series since it’s scarf season after all.
So scarves … I’m pretty much obsessed! So obsessed that I probably have at least a dozen of them. They’re cute AND practical which is totally my style. I love how they instantly add so much to an outfit. Not to mention they help keep you warm in the cooler months, but that’s basically just a bonus. The cuteness factor is my favorite part about them.
My all time favorite kind of scarf is the infinity scarf (I guess it’s also called a “tube scarf”). It has no beginning or end, so it’s super easy to throw on with no hassles of wrapping or tying.

Don’t get me wrong though, I love good ol’ fashioned regular scarves too! The cool thing about regular scarves is that you can make them into what looks like an infinity scarf. There’s all sorts of cool tutorials on Pinterest, but basically you just loosely wrap the scarf around you and hide the ends behind your scarf – voila!
And of course there’s several other super fun ways to tie scarves other than the “infinity style” too! Just be creative – there’s no “right or wrong” way.
Next, my favorite places to buy scarves…
I love classy and fashionable clothes as much as the next girl, but being on a one income budget means that I can’t afford to go buy hundred dollar scarves. Fortunately, there’s all sorts of places out there that sell cute and affordable scarves these days. Some of my top favorite stores include: Target, H&M, Old Navy, and Gap. Let’s be real, these four stores are some of the only places I shop at for clothes these days. If you have any other store ideas that sell affordable scarves, feel free to share in the comments section below!
Another great thing about scarves is that they come in all different types of fabrics. Some are heavy sweater material that are great for keeping you nice and toasty when it’s cold, and others are more of a lightweight material that are perfect for milder temps. I think one of my favorite parts about living in Utah is having a great excuse to wear a chunky, warm scarf when the weather is freezing.

Alrighty, I think that’s enough scarf talk for one day! Next week on Bits & Pieces of Ashley we’ll be talking a little bit about Cody’s and my relationship since having Hunter and how we manage to make time for just the two of us.
I’ll see ya Sunday for my food and fitness plans for the week. Have a great weekend!
