Scarves are weird. Even though they aren't the main piece of the outfit, they tend to take over everything else as the centerpiece. That's why I throw one on when I'm feeling a little blah about my outfit; colorful scarves always add some visual interest, especially with neutrals. It's also a great way to add a little spring to your look, even when you're posing in front of giant mounds of snow.
In other news, I look extremely short in flats (no surprise, I am) and I thought about selling this bag because my phone doesn't fit well in it (iPhone 6 plus probs) but it's just so darn cute, I'm holding on to it now. At least for spring.
