Jessica Lynn writes hosted a Scarf Swap. This was my first time participating in a swap. It was a little daunting to shop for a scarf for someone else…I think the first email said “colorful” and wouldn’t you know it…I forgot all about that and came home from the store with a very neutral (gray) and elegant scarf that I thought was perfect for holiday parties. I went back and checked my email for the mailing address. Oops…nothing colorful about that scarf…quickly tucked it into my closet with the rest of my scarves. Two days later, I went to the store and found a cozy red and black scarf that seemed more fitting for someone who was looking for “colorful.” Next time, I might jot down a note or two rather than rely on what I think is the prettiest scarf hanging around at the store.
I received a beautiful scarf in neutral colors with a fantastic mix of stripes and floral. I noted that my favorite color is gray, and this scarf will fit into my wardrobe perfectly! I haven’t had the chance to wear it yet…sitting around in sweats and slippers…but I am excited to wear it today and will post a picture on Wednesday when I recap my week for Alison’s Style Me Pretty Build Your Wardrobe Basics Challenge.
Side Note: My scarf swap partner, Rachel Brenke, has a book that you really should check out (in addition to checking out her great website, that is). Her book, The Laundry List: A Mom’s Guide to Running a Successful Business and Home, is perfect for moms who want to gather some ideas and inspiration for streamlining the processes of running a home and a business. She shares her strategies and methods for success. (You can also sign up for her email updates and preview a chapter of the book for free.)
Be sure to stop by the link up and check out all the fabulous scarves that were gifted and received! I can’t wait to do this again next year. It was so much fun.
