gift highlights

008v7

At the risk of sounding overly gushy, I think I fell in love with my husband all over again when he gave me this Square Lust scarf for Christmas. It's even more beautiful in real life than I imagined. I'd be halfway tempted to frame it if I wasn't so excited to wear it. Which brings me to the question: how does one artfully tie a scarf? Any good tutorials I should check out?

Oh and the ring? Pretty much been wearing it nonstop since the moment it came out of its package Christmas morning :-)

I'd be tempted to frame it as well. Most ways to wear a scarf obscure the gorgeous designs. I have a similar one that I have no clue what to do with because when I tie it up it becomes ordinary. :)

Great gifts. The scarf is gorgeous. I have seen you wear scarves so I think you already are great at tying. This one probably will require you tie it loose to show most of its design and color.
I just did a post by the way inspired by one of your outfits. With a scarf!
