Bow Tie Scarf

Shirt & Earrings (Francesca's); Jacket (H&M); Jeans (Nordstrom);
Scarf (Target); Shoes (Payless)

Sometimes my life feels a lot like Groundhog Day.  I park in literally the same spot at work every day. I always have raisin and spice oatmeal for breakfast (at the precise time of 8:50).  I am guaranteed to be asleep by 10PM on "school nights".  When I think about my day, it's a little scary how ridiculously routine I can be. So when I put my scarf on, my heart raced a little when I tied it in a bow tie instead of wrapping it around my neck per usual.  Call me crazy, but I can really shake things up sometimes :)

Love the flow of this post! I need routine. I have zero! I eat at different times, different things, work different hours, go to sleep at all parts if the night. What I wouldn't do to have a routine!!! Cute bowtie scarf

I love that you had the idea to tie this in a bow tie! Genius!!! It's such a great look and it really changes the style of the outfit (which I also love by the way)!

Katie- Hems for Her said...

Yes! I am the queen of routine! I think for me, being a teacher I've never gotten out of the school routine. I get up at the same time,leave the house at the same time, have my lunch and bathroom breaks at the same time... I don't like things to mess with my routine.

However, I do like scarves tied in bows... I'm about the totally redo mine!

Lynn said...

I LOVE the bow! Super cute, I might have to try this next time :)

Bethie The Boo said...

I am SUCH a routine girl, it's kind of crazy. I can't help it, it gets me through the week!

I love the idea of tying the scarf into a bow! I might have to try that! I also love your sweater, looks very cozy and warm!

This is one of my favorite things to do! Because I LOVE bows and its so easy! It helps me incorporate all the vintage scarves my mother gave me into my wardrobe! And of course I'm loving your stripes and wedged booties!

Maria Morley said...

LOVE this. And, might I add, I love the color of your jeans! I am picky when it comes to washes, but that one is so pretty!

Kate Greer said...

Love the stripes with the H&M jacket - great layering!

I know how you feel about it feeling like Groundhog Day. It especially feels that way having a child. But routine is good and you can always spice it up a bit, like you did, with your fashion. Love your jacket and the scarf.

I like your wedge booties, I've been so into booties this season because they're so versatile! You can dress them up or down depending on what you're wearing and there's been a ton of different styles out there in the market lately!

I think the bow scarf is a darling detail! Super cute! It's always fun to mix up accessories in unexpected ways. And I have those same shoes from Payless. Never wear them, but the way you styled them gave me a great spark of inspiration. Hope you have a wonderful week, lady!


katkatikatie said...

I sometimes wish I had a bit more routine in my days. They are so varied that I feel like I rarely can get the same thing done two days in a row! Mixing it up with a scarf sounds great to me!
