Because I need to convince myself summer is OVER

*This post is in attempt to make me feel better about so-long summer...and about the 'other' seasons that are right around the corner. I'm trying...I'm trying, people. But summer, you will be missed.

I can't help but think about Fall creeping up on us. I talked a few times about my love for headbands this summer--but I have to be honest when I say that I have a love affair with another fashion accessory. I'd betray headbands any day to wear a scarf.

Fall is the perfect season to break out your collection of scarves and start showing them off...and let's be honest--scarves (the lightweight kind) even look cute with tank tops. They are just so darn versatile.

I've been pretty obsessed with scarves for a while now--ask my family. Every time I'm out--and I see one, I pick it up and picture adding it to my collection. The teachers at my school last year would always get excited to see which new scarf I would break out next. (Added bonus: they tend to make me 'feel' better when I'm sick. It could be all in my head. Just sayin'...)

I love that scarves will dress up any boring outfit. I love that they work perfect with a plain top (and could totally hide a stain!). I really like the way they frame your face, and I just oh-so-much love how there are a millionnnn ways to tie them to get a new look.

I have a LOT of scarves...as you can see in the picture. The sad thing is, not all of them are here. I wish we all lived closer and we could have a scarf exchange. How fun to be able to switch up the scarves you wear every few months or so.

Are you a scarf-lover like me?


ps: thanks for 'trying' to get the Mr. Loves of Life to guest post. He is toying with the idea, but I don't think he has any motivation nor interest, really. We'll see. Maybe one day.

  1. SO jealous you got to go to Old Navy!! :( And ever MORE jealous that you get to wear scarves. :( Think of those of us in Florida missing the cool weather when you wear them. :(

  3. That's the type of accessory I would pick up at the store and then it would sit in the closet, never to see the light of day. I just never know how to wear them! Do you just put it around your neck and tie it off, or what?

  9. Ooh yes, I am a fellow scarf lover! I work at American Eagle and this summer we had tons of scarves for about $6. I stocked up and now have more than I know what to do with!

    You look adorable in a scarf, btw :)

  11. I am such a scarf addict!! I have a whole drawful of them. They are so beautiful, and you're right...can be worn with anything. I'm in Florida this fall, and everyone talking about cooler weather has made me itch to get a scarf, even though I'd drown from the heat! :)

  12. I love scarves too! I definitely don't have a whole collection though, it looks like I need to get fall shopping!

    Also, I'm catching up after the long weekend and just wanted to chime in with everyone else and say that the new hair is ADORABLE!

  14. I love scarves!

    And I love the idea of a scarf exchange!

    Or what about a scarf swap?

    Seriously! I love that idea! You should host one! You'd be the perfect person to do it! And I'd definitely help if you need it!

  29. I just bought my first two scarves (that aren't wintery scarves) this weekend and I think I'm gonna like the look! Like you said, they dress up a plain all shirt.

    Oh, about the jewelry organizer...

    I have no idea what the metal is supposed to be for! We just walked up and down the aisles of Lowe's and I saw this. It was on the same aisle as the s-hooks.
