Thank Your Lucky Scarves

Admit it. Living in the Islands has turned you into a total weather wimp. Drizzles feel like downpours and you get chicken skin when the thermostat dips below 80 degrees.

And while fall's cooler temps definitley call for warmer fashions, you don't need to reach for the mittens just yet. Skip the wooly wools, sure to turn you into one big sweat-er, and try these chic lightweight scarves on for size.
