Traveling Scarf!

Rand's Daily Outfit Assessment: "It's so nice to see you in heels again." Agreed. I can't wait for my ankle to heel. I gave in and wore boots today b/c I just couldn't take it anymore. I didn't put them on until I got the office, to minimize the amount of walking I did in them. It was still a bad idea. Back to flats for me. :(

Kimberly's fabulous Traveling Scarf #1 made it's way to Texas this week. As soon as I got it, I knew I had to wear it the next day. As a couple of people have mentioned previously, the colors in the scarf are much more subtle and subdued than you expect. Once I saw the dove grey in the paisley pattern, I immediately thought of this grey jacket that I recently picked up from Goodwill. Plus I wanted to wear the scarf in a way that it had not been worn yet, so I tried a bib-style worn under the jacket lapels (I don't think anyone has done that yet). And it all just came together from there.

What I Wore With The Traveling Scarf:

2009-11-19 combo

  • scarf (loan from Kimberly)
  • grey jacket (Lane Bryant via Goodwill)
  • hunter green dress (Target)
  • grey striped tights (Lane Bryant)
  • grey suede boots (Lane Bryant)
  • red patent belt (Target)
  • red earrings (vintage, borrowed from Maria)
  • green ring (Etsy Dallas fair)

Thanks again for letting me participate. It was so much fun!

Love the new way you styled this scarf. That ring looks like peas in a pod. A good thing, peas are good for you ;)

I've been searching for boots JUST LIKE THAT forever! Lane Bryants site doesn't seem to have boots...are they old? Do they not carry them anymore? HELP! I'm having a crapper of a time finding some cute wide calf boots in that style.

Lesa - thanks! I am really excited about these boots too. For years and years I have struggled to even find basic black boots that fit, let alons something in color. I might ahve done a little dance in the store when I found out these fit my calves.

lanzia - thanks!

Sher - I agree. Definitely peas in a pod!

Brooke - Thanks! me too! I miss heels.

LadiesSilkScarf - I've become a pretty bog scarf fan too. They add such style to outfits.

C Lo - I got them at a Lane Bryant outlet store in Houston, so maybe there are from last season?

strivingbelle - awww. thanks!
