On just about every Instagram account of young celebrities you’ll find images of them wearing jeans: super skinnies, boot-cuts, flares (a new take on our beloved bottoms), boyfriends, etc. One might get the impression that jeans were the exclusive domain of the young.
Ever feel like your wardrobe is in a rut? You grab the first thing you can reach and throw it on. You look… OK. But you’ve been wearing the same old outfit for years.

“I love life and live every day to its fullest.”

If you are anything like me, then you’ve had scarves in your closet for many, many years. Whether you wear them or not is a different story. But now that the weather is getting cooler and we need extra layers to keep warm, these are great items that work for any age, any size woman.
