I completely forgot until Sunday afternoon that Rachel's Scarf Carnival was today. Which meant that I raced to Target after church, hoping that they would deliver the cuteness that I was looking for, because I was in desperate need. They did, and I had a gift card, which made it a completely wonderful and painless shopping trip. Then I stopped at Walmart, because I kept hearing people rave about their $5 scarves.
You would think that I would've gotten my post ready to go in the afternoon when I got home. But no. I did not. I waited until my hubby went to bed to snap my pictures because I wasn't so sure I wanted him to witness my scarf photo shoot. Don't look too closely, or you'll see some puffiness lurking around my eyes - all due to the fact that I should have been in bed a few hours ago. But for you, my friends, I will gladly put makeup on at midnight and then snap about 50 pictures of myself. Nothing weird about that.
So right as I was gearing up to stand in front of my time-delay camera, I realized I didn't really know too much about tying scarves. I did watch Big Mama's tutorial when she posted it a few weeks ago, but I didn't practice, which meant I didn't remember much. I googled "How to tie a scarf" and 4 million sites popped up, so I have a feeling I'm not alone.
So here is my attempt. First up, Target scarf. And some funky lighting.
And my $5 bargain. (ooohh, now that I look at it, I see some twistiness and rumpledness. Grrrrr.....)
I have a few other scarves that I meant to show you, but y'all, my face can't take any more smiling and posing, so I'm going to leave it at that.
Rachel, thank you so much for hosting this. I am so excited to have a reason to buy some new scarves, and maybe now I will feel more pulled together.
Now I'm off to wash away my coat of midnight mascara.
