I stumbled upon this cool shop on Etsy the other day. Lilian Asterfield is a bonanza of neck adornment! The artist behind the shop is Nicole Deponte and she has re-envisioned neckties and pocket squares in the most creative way! For a while now I have been really in love with all the big chunky new necklaces, or adult bibs as I like to call them, that are showing up all over the internet. The thing is, I cannot see myself wearing most of them in my work-from-home-mom little world. Somehow I don’t see the grocery run as an opportunity to take it up a notch as some
desperate housewives do.
But, these necklaces are giving me pause. I think they are absolutely beautiful and the scrunched, tighter scarf designs seem like a much warmer alternative to the bulky knit variety.

Paired with a nicely tailored wool coat I think they would be quite stylish rather than clumsy looking when running after a two-year-old at the park. This smaller piece, made from a pocket square, has just enough textile and edge to catch my eye.
Oh man, I think I am in love…
