(ÉSTAINE Scarf, Line Sweater, A.L.C. Skirt - ON SALE!, Express Tights - UNDER $11, Alaia Knee High Boots)

My friends over at ÉSTAINE here in Colorado let me pick out one of their beautiful silk scarves for styling on Fashion Snag.  ÉSTAINE designs unique luxury accessories inspired by dye stained cells under the microscope.  Scientists use dyes to stain tissue in the lab, which helps them diagnose many forms of cancer.  The 100% silk twill sunburst scarf that I am wearing shows the pattern of stained cells under the microscope using hematoxylin and eosin dyes.  This type of stain can lead to the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.  ÉSTAINE designs luxury accessories made in Como, Italy alongside many other Italian luxury brands.  When you purchase a scarf or tie from ÉSTAINE 10% of your pledge is donated to breastcancer.org or the Lymphoma & Leukemia Society.  ÉSTAINE is helping to fight the war on cancer and you can too.  ÉSTAINE truly is for the fashionably and socially conscious.  Please check out their kickstarter campaign here and make a pledge today.  I love my scarf and I noticed how high quality it was right away.  The colors are beautiful to wear with my winter outfits and will look amazing with ensembles for the spring and summer as well.  

My entire look was styled around the scarf.  I wanted to show you how to wear a colorful silk scarf in the winter.  This is a fun way to bring some spring and summer trends into your wardrobe right now without sacrificing your warmth.  It is still really cold out there.  I wanted the scarf to be the statement piece in the look and since it features beautiful pink and purple colors as well as a unique pattern I kept the rest of my outfit pretty simple.  By wearing black and white as a base the scarf really stands out.  I liked how the scarf looked against a black or white top a lot.  I snagged this beautiful angora blend sweater over the holidays and it has a nice cropped cut to it.  It is so cozy and fuzzy as well.  I am wearing a size small in the sweater if you are interested in purchasing it. 

I also wore a black knit skirt from a brand that I love.  This A.L.C. skirt is definitely one of my closet staples.  You can never go wrong with a stretchy knit flared skirt like this.  I think it is very flattering on most shapes.  Right now it is on super sale so be sure to snag it here while you can.  I am wearing a size extra small.  I also wore my favorite tights from Express.  They never get a snag in them and are very high quality for the price.  They are on sale right now too.

On my feet are some super cool boots I snagged on sale from The Outnet last winter.  I wore them in Aspen with a quilted leather skirt and Chanel bag.  You can see that post here.  The Outnet carries a wide selection of Alaia shoes on sale.  Check out all of them here.  Alaia shoes almost always run true to size.  I am wearing my usual size 39 in these boots.  They are so cute thanks to the shearling detailing at the top.  They are also lined in shearling, which keeps your feet and legs very warm.  I love the tread sole on these boots because it is perfect for the Colorado winter weather.  I won't slip and my boots have rubber tread so they don't get ruined by the salty and slushy streets.
