Cold Busters





Dress (H&M); Scarf & Tights (Target): Boots (Guess find at Marshalls)
Watch (Fossil): Earrings (Nordstrom)

I'm a skeptic of those so called "cold busters" - like airborne or Emergen-C...  you are supposed to take them when you feel a cold coming on and it's supposed to prevent it from developing any further.  I caved and got a box of Emergen-C after feeling the dreaded pre-cold scratchy throat the other day. Admittedly, I didn't get a full blown cold...  Although I'm pretty certain that my bright yellow scarf is also chock full of vitamin C. And there's no evidence to suggest otherwise ;)

One of my friends sweaaaaars by those pills! Everytime I've tried them I didn't think they worked. I usually just try to sleep it off if I feel something a-brewin'. Hope you're feeling better!

I used to be a skeptic too but airborne really does work! I love the yellow scarf!

Lauren said...

I love the bright scarf! So cheery! I used to be similarly skeptical of cold remedies, but Emergen-C has helped me a time or two!

My husband and my dad both swear by Airborne, but I don't know. I have a hard choking that stuff down, it's as bad as McDonald's orange drink from school parties when I was a kid!

I think the pop of yellow in that scarf is the perfect vitamin C!!

Rachel Lynne said...

LOVE your scarf and dress! :)

Rebecca said...

Yes I think that bright yellow scarf did help you snap out of it Heather....love the wedge boots too!!!

I HATE colds. I mean, I know no one "likes" them, but still, they linger with me! Glad you avoided the worst it sounds like.

And I love this dress- so cozy and comfy!

I SO love this look, Heather. LOVE the sleekness of the all-black, the contrast of the brown boots, and the PUNCH of yellow. <3

Such a fun outfit! I love the pop of yellow with the scarf!

Shea Sayers said...

Yes that bright scarf is the perfect antidote for fall sniffles! I take Airborne when I feel a cold coming on, and sometimes I swear it works, but other times it doesn't seem to make much of a difference.

Kim (A Very Sweet Blog) said...

I know! I don't believe in them either. HAHAHA LOVE your dress Heather! It's so sharp! Great scarf doll!

As a nutritionist (which I am by day) I'd suggest taking extra 500-1000mg good quality vitamin C on a daily basis (plus your regular multi containing zinc) and in case of a cold, you can increase vit C to 3000mg taken at equal intervals during a day (start with 2000mg, then add an extra one)

You can also try drinking ginger tea with raw honey and adding garlic and turmeric to everything.

Stay well!

P.S. Love the dress and scarf very much!

Beatiful scarf and dress! You look great!

This is too funny! I'm feeling a bit under the weather today, so I wore a yellow top to give the illusion that I'm bright and cheery. And it actually made me feel sort of better. I think you're on to something :)

I love this long black dress. It's so pretty and classic! And I definitely know what you mean about Emergen-C. I try not to take it but I have definitely caved before, too.

P.S. Were these photos taken at the MIA? If not, I love the location!
