Happy Cinco de Mayo, amigas y amigos! I’ve got plans for chips and margaritas on a patio tonight…sure hope the weather is on board with my fiesta plans. As long as it’s not raining, we’ll be good to go, and I’ll likely be wearing some variation of my Spring Uniform.
You know from my Power of One post the impact a great scarf has on a basic outfit…and there’s no question I’m a fan of them myself.
What in the?! Just checking to see if you’re still with me. But really, what am I doing?
But one question seems to pop up every time I wear one….‘How do you tie your scarf?!’
I don’t have a secret, never-heard-of-before method of tying and wearing my scarves, in fact, I thought there was only one way, and that’s how everyone wore them. But apparently there are 100s of ways to wear and tie a scarf. #thankspinterest #sarcastichashtag
So I’ll show you mine if you show me yours?
I prefer infinity scarves, because they do all the work for you. But if I fall in love with a traditional scarf, this is how I tie it to resemble an infinity.
Sidenote: This works best with thinner, gauzy scarves. Trying this method with a blanket scarf may result in suffocation. #tieatyourownrisk #hisugarplumandheraffiliatesarenotresponsible #Idontactuallyhaveaffiliates
1) Center the scarf in front of you.
2) Wrap the ends behind your head without pulling the scarf all the way back.
3) And cross them them to the front.
4) Loosely tie just the ends.
5) Grab the edge of the loop, pull it to the top layer,
6) And wrap it over the ends.
7. Fluff and smile at your darling neck adornment. If the scarf has fun tassels, I’ll let the ends poke out…if not, I tuck them under the loop.
Apparently the final step is to make out with your photobombing pup. Nobody panic…she’s licking my chin. I save my real kisses for Mr. SP.
Did you learn anything new or is this how you’ve always tied your scarves? And sorry for wearing sunglasses, but I didn’t want my allergy-eyes distracting you from the uber-important task at hand.
Speaking of sunglasses…did you see Nordstrom has most every Ray Ban style 25% off right now?! I’m a long-standing member of the cheap sunglasses club, but when I posted the sale on Facebook yesterday, you guys raved and insisted they were worth the splurge. Hey Mr. SP….Mother’s Day is this weekend, and it’s sure to be a sunny one! 😉
So let’s chat….how do you wear and tie your scarves?
