Hello lovelies,

Second Fave of the Week! [one day late, but please don't be mad: I was shooting a fun Failcast webisode that you'll all get to see soon, if that makes you less upset.] This week, I’m focusing on two of the things I just dug out of my closet because it’s FINALLY cold enough to wear them.

This weeks fave of the week is: beanies and scarves!

Let’s start with scarves. I’m sure you guys have seen me wearing scarves in countless and pictures. It stemmed from me singing a lot when I was little– gotta protect your instrument! I used to wear them all the time, and now that it’s autumn, I’m so excited to finally be able to wear them again. It took me a long time to get used to infinity scarves– I never understood how to wear them really– but when I went to NYU, that changed for some reason. [maybe it was the FREEZING COLD TEMPERATURES AND CONSTANT RAIN AND SNOW that made me learn how to wear them??????] Seriously. They’re all I wear now. They dress up any outfit and, more importantly, keep my throat super warm!

There are also times I don’t feel like wrapping the scarf around my neck, so I’ll just leave it undone.

I use my neutral colors the most [below], but I do have a few different ones for a pop of color when I need it. :]


And now, beanies! I am a hat person, mostly because my skin is super sun sensitive, so I have to wear hats throughout the year. Below is the one you’re all used to seeing me in– I wear this all the time! I wish I knew what brand it was, but it was a gift. I love this because the brim isn’t too big [so I can still see lol] and it doesn’t look like a massively large prima donna sun hat, but it still protects my face.

Now that the weather is cooling down a little, I’ve pulled out the beanies. When I was in Toronto shooting How to Build A Better Boy, I thought it was going to be painfully hot, but I was sadly mistaken. There were mornings when it was freezing cold! I was incredibly ill prepared, so I went to Urban Outfitters one day after work [with Marshall and Noah] [thanks for the help, boys] and bought a simple black beanie. It helped me through post-work crazy hair and cold mornings [and nights] on set.

I recently got a new beanie that I am OBSESSED with from Cream Clothing Co. It’s the softest and warmest beanie I own. Fits perfectly and it’s so freaking comfortable. Also loving that it’s red. Like I said, I like wearing mostly neutrals, but I love having a pop of color somewhere in my outfit, and there’s no better way to do it than with a super cute red beanie!
