Fall Essential: Printed Scarf

I hope you are having a great week so far!  I stumbled across these columns while walking back home from one of my favorite Thai spots (Little Uncle) in the Capital Hill neighborhood of Seattle.  They are what remains of an old Jewish Temple, the Temple De Hirsch, that was demolished in 1993.  There is a newer building on the opposite corner of the block, but these old columns and facade are so majestic that I had to return to take today's photos.  This is one of my go-to fall outfits with components that I bet you already have in your closet: a striped tee, boyfriend jeans, ankle boots, a light anorak, a mini bag, and a light scarf.  The piece that really stands out in this outfit is the gorgeous silk scarf that I purchased on my recent work trip to Shanghai.  It has a floral pattern using blues, browns, and a bit of dark yellow for a perfect fall palette.
