Brrrrr

There was a little frost on the pumpkin this morning. (Seriously. My pumpkin is still on my stoop. Don’t judge. It’s cute and it hasn’t fallen in on itself yet.) It was frosty enough for the (gasp) scraper on the car windshield.

Frosty weather is perfect for a little pip. Ya know? Pip Robins.


Pip Robins is a logical choice when the weather cools off. Designer and creator Gillian Hyde has been making and perfecting her cowls here in Halifax since 2009. After seeing a fella struggle against the wind with a bandana to keep warm, the tubular, over-the-head accessory was born. The Pip Robins line has grown from her signature unisex plaid cowls to include unique, limited edition appliqued varieties as well as lace and  embellished flowers. Gillian takes care to choose sustainable fabrics (often recycled) wherever possible and has a variety of choices from a cozy plaid and hardy herringbones to romantic lace and pretty satin flowers.

Now – don’t those look cozy?? And easy to wear! Come on in and see for yourself.

  1. Great post. Chic way to fight the chill. I just posted a blog about loving tights, and mentioned my other favorite fall thing is scarves. I think these totally make the list, especially the first pic.
