Firstly, I am terribly sorry for having not blogged for what feels like a million years and leaving you in the lurch! Don’t have any good excuse here – life just got the better of me! But trust me, I missed you lots.
I decided it’s time I wrote a post because I’ve left for far too long. Even if it means I will have about 4 hours of sleep tonight because I need to be up at 5.30 a.m tomorrow (yes, on a Saturday!). Hope you feel the love here *grin*. I know I have MANY of your posts to catch up reading on. Just give me some time and I promise to get round to it!
Today I thought I’d share some ways of tying a scarf. Coming from a very warm tropical country all year round, I never had to wear one. So when I moved to oh-so-lovely-cloudy-cold-and-grey Scotland, I hadn’t the slightest clue how to wear a scarf! I normally just wore it as a loop or a turtle neck. Boring right? Until someone showed me how to tie it in, what I call, a Braid. Just looks more interesting than the typical ways of wearing a scarf!
It looks great on guys too!
When they get it right *chuckles*.
I was going to post step-by-step pictures for this, when a lovely friend sent me a link to a video which was much better! In the video, it’s called the Criss Cross. I had never seen it before but it is a fantastic video – you simply MUST watch it. This is thanks to the very lovely LeQuan from luvtoeat.wordpress.com. Check out all her food recipes – they’re delicious! Plus she’s such a wonderful person you’ll just miss out if you don’t get to know her!
Here’s the video:
I couldn’t wait to try out the different ways of tying a scarf! I went for ‘The Knot’ first and I love how scarves are such a great way of accessorizing.
Not only does it keep you warm (especially when it’s always cold) but it looks great too!
I also found a photo I saved from some time ago and I can’t remember where to get it from so I’m afraid I can’t provide a link. If you know where it’s from please let me know.
If, like me, you don’t know much about different ways of wearing a scarf, I hope you have fun playing around with these different ways! A scarf seems to make any simple outfit just that little more interesting!
Have a great weekend! And I’ll be back to catch up on your posts very soon.
