Disclosure: The scarf below was provided free of charge from La Fiorentina for review purposes.
I absolutely love scarves so I was very excited to get the opportunity to review this beautiful La Fiorentina scarf. Scarves are so versatile and can be worn all year long. They are one of my favorite accessories and a must have when I travel. This pretty pink, red, and white scarf adds a soft touch to any outfit.
The La Fiorentina scarves range from $24 - $199 and come in a variety of styles and colors. This lovely scarf is soft, lightweight, and wide enough to be used as a wrap. It's a perfect substitute for a jacket, especially now that summer is here!
