Trying to Fashion Blog It

When I first started this blog, I considered making it a fashion blog.  I'm very interested in fashion and I like reading other fashion blogs.  But, let's be honest, I'm no fashionista and I don't have a life that requires the latest styles or expensive clothes.

I did, however, want to share a recent scarf purchase and a cool way to tie a scarf.

I bought this pretty scarf, which I love, for $15 at Target.  I love the color (it comes in a red design and teal too) and the paisley print.  I see myself wearing this scarf a lot this fall and the coming winter months.  And I recently learned a neat way to tie a scarf around your neck:

Step 1: Fold the scarf in half lengthwise, and hang it around your neck with the loop on one side and the 2 ends on the other side.
Step 2:  Holding the end of the loop, take one loose end of the scarf and weave it through the loop by putting it over one leg of the loop and under the other leg of the loop.  With the other loose end of the scarf, do the opposite - weave it under one side of the loop and over the other side.  Refer to the photo below:

Step 3:  Pull on the ends to tighten and shift the knot as you want to wear it.



  1. Awesome! I have to admit, I have like 5 scarves, ranging from beautiful to funky, and I never wear them because it feels so unnatural and foreign-- similar to bright red lipstick. I keep buying scarves, especially from Target, but my closet is the only one who ever wears them. I'm going to give this a try.

  2. I have a similar feeling about fabric scarves. I have no problem wearing knit scarves (of course!), but I often feel self conscious wearing fashion scarves. Tying the scarf this way, however, seems more relaxed and I really like how it looks. I hope you give it a try :) Thanks!!
