a scarf-tying tutorial in three takes.

it appears my scarf-tying skills are better than my tutorial skills.
but...hopefully this helps a little bit!

  1. I haven't gotten to watch the videos yet, cause I need to put my kids to bed first...but the photos of you wearing scarves are adorable! My fave is the red and white stripped top! Darling!!!

  2. Oh.My.Word. Those are the most hysterical videos EVER! I can't stop laughing...which I am sure that is what you were going for. Now I need to go back and watch them again so I can actually learn how to tie a scarf.

  6. This is hilarious!! It's funny to see that other people's kids can be like mine are sometimes too :) Good tutorial though and very helpful. It's cool to see all your pictures with the scarves and see what a variety of things you can do with something so simple. Thanks!!

  7. OK. So I found your blog via your sister's blog and read the whole thing over the course of two days....I couldn't stop! Your family is cute, and your marriage story inspiring, but what truly caught my eye were your wear posts.

    I'm not super 'fashion forward' and often don't try too hard for fear of looking like I'm trying too hard. But on the flip side of that, I buy lots of odds and ends that when I get home, I can't quite figure out what to do with. Is that weird?? Probably.

    ANYWAY, as I read through your blog, I kept saying to myself "I have a shirt like that", "I could (kinda) recreate that cute look she's got goin' on" and stuff like that.

    Now, I realize you're much younger than I am and that I can't pull off everything you do, but darn it all to heck if I haven't gone scarf crazy!! :)

    I was in Target yesterday (may I also say I love that your clothes are from real stores and accessible? Awesome.) and raided their scarf section. I had a leopard one in my hand and put it back because it was knitted and not sheer, and I thought that might not be realistic all year round. Lame. I think I'm gonna go back and get it!

    I guess what this wordy comment is trying to say is thank you for putting yourself out there fashion-wise, because it makes getting dressed a little less scary!

    Thanks!! :)

  8. Oh man I loved that. I know Haven would be all up in my business too. But I love how you let Piper be a part of it and feel included - I am sure it made her feel important, and that's something a good mommy would do. :)

  12. Well done, especially with two assistants! You are a scarf tying fiend! I learned the first way you showed when I lived in Spain 7 years ago (before scarves were really big here) and it is my go-to. Love learning fun, new ways too.

  13. Love it, thanks! I really enjoy your style posts (ok, all your posts). I thought you might like to hear I had a 2 year old loudly telling me "it's not in there Momma" while I was trying to watch : ) Did you do the infinity scarf trick in the green sweater and 3rd striped shirt pic (in the second row)? I love that look, thanks again

  15. Have you ever seen the show How I Met Your Mother? Your voice sounds JUST like Lilly (Alyson Hannigan).

    I'm the kinda tee and jeans girl you were referencing and I would love to be more fashionable but I've always been terrified. This seems like an easy baby step. I'll have to try it! Love your girls by the way! They are so adorable!!

  17. You should definitely do more videos because they were super helpful!! It was so easy to recreate your looks, even with my own leopard print scarf!! :)

    Can't wait to try out the other looks!
