Oh, heeeeey there. I seem to have a bunch of new readers on board (I officially adore you) and if you want, you can check out this link here and here to get a better idea of the girl (woman?) behind the blog. Please leave me a comment below and introduce yourself, okay? I love to meet my readers!
On another note: scarves. I go through phases where I either love them and buy them by the armful or I stuff them into the back of my closet and ignore them entirely. Or give them to my daughter and she ties them on like a silky Superwoman cape. If you haven’t met her here yet, my daughter’s name is Molly and she is the girliest of girls. I find my jewelry and shoes in her room all the time.
Four ways to wear a scarf! Yes.
1) My favorite by far is to fold it until it can be tied hippie style around the forehead and tied in the back. We went Jeeping this past weekend and Molly and I both wore a scarf like this to keep our hair out of our eyes. It works!
2) Belt it! I like to either twist it, loop it around my neck and belt the ends or tie it like an eternity scarf and belt the bottom part around my waist. This is fun when you are wearing a simple top or dress and want to add something to it to make it more special.
3) Braid it! Tie the scarf around a low ponytail, then braid the ends into the braid by holding the scarf ends with two separate chunks of hair. Secure with an elastic and let the ends fall. I think you could do this with the hippie style as well. Just braid the ends after tying it in the back. That would be cute at the beach this summer, right?
4) A no brainer (hello!) but loop the ends around your neck and back around your front and let them dangle. Easy, peasy.
Bonus! Tie it kerchief style. Fold the scarf so it looks like a triangle, then tie the ends so it looks like an eternity scarf and let the triangle part hang in the front. I see Jessica Alba and Nicole Ritchie do this all the time.
And an introduction! These scarves were gifted to me by Kiri. She is raising money here by selling scarves to help educate two little boys in China. Noble, huh? Please read what Kiri wrote to me about this and please stop by her blog to learn more about how you can help her contribute to this family
Last year, I lived in the city on Zhongshan, China. There, I met a little boy. I affectionately named him Jacob, and he quickly became my best friend. My intention is to sell beautiful silk & cotton scarves at a fair price with all proceeds going towards an education for Jacob and his littler brother Joshua. Through the efforts of Jacob’s Scarves both boys will receive a bilingual education, something that could drastically inspire and change their lives for the better.
