The Little Scarf that Could

As I was going through old travel photos the same fashion accessory kept popping up on nearly every trip: my grey and white scarf. I have had this thing for years; it doesn’t even have a tag on it anymore that’s how old it is. I think I got it at Old Navy but I can’t be sure. Honestly, I never realized this was my apparent go-to travel companion but here it is over and over again.

I think this scarf works because it is lightweight enough for warmer climates and can be used as a sarong or tied as a make shift headscarf. However, it’s also decently good at keeping my neck warm when looped around a few times when it’s chilly outside (read: not too cold). So I am writing this blog post to maybe help make you aware of a closet travel staple you may have overlooked. A scarf is literally your best friend when traveling so pick a good one and it will serve you for years in a variety of climates and dress codes.

Here’s some of the pictures I found with my trusty scarf:

Here I am at the National Gallery of Art in the summer heat, this scarf was perfect for the over air-conditioned museum. And the pattern is subtle enough that it doesn’t compete.

Who needs jewelry when you have this scarf as your accessory? Not me.

Another museum but I am still wearing the same scarf. This is in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It’s summer but chilly!
