Trying New Things: Day 26



Day 26: Wear a Scarf

I know, I know.  Wearing a scarf is a weird thing to pick.  So here’s the deal.  I see all these women wearing pretty scarves and I look at my Pinterest style board and pretty much every single outfit I like includes a scarf…but I’ve never worn one. For some reason they scare me.  I feel like an idiot when I try to put one on.  I don’t know why. (Seriously, ask Heather if you don’t believe me, cause I tried to wear one almost every day last week and chickened out every time.)

I viewed videos on how to wear scarves 2,999 different ways.  I looked at pictures.  I read tutorials.  Nothing helped. So today I forced myself to put one on and leave the house before I could change my mind.  I probably wore it wrong. But I wore it. It was hard for me.  But I did it.

(It’s also hard for me to post this picture because I’m sure you’re all going to ridicule me. Irrational, I know. Also, please ignore the hideous state of my mirror…)

Phew.  Glad to have this one behind me.

  1. You look good… expect for that “I’m-a-serial-killer” look on your face and you can’t blame that on the scarf. It is a good color for you though. You should try wearing it looser. It doesn’t have to be cinched up around your neck so tight. Your makeup looks really pretty. I am not good at putting on makeup.

  2. Like I said on FB you look good! No worries. I am the same way about stuff like this. In my head I feel stupid, but I am sure it’s only in my head.

  3. It looks great! I’ve never worn a scarf either. My daughter wears them all the time and they look fantastic. I may break out of my comfort zone and try one now.

  4. Had to laugh out loud at this, because, ME TOO! What is the deal with everyone looking great in them, but when I put them on I have to keep re-adjusting and trying not to strangle myself?
