However, I did not have time to jump in the shower, so my hair was a stringy mess. Instead of reaching for a hat, I decided to try wrapping a scarf around my head. I tell you, if you ever want to attract attention in north central Wisconsin, the land of camouflage, Under Armor sweatshirts, and leggings as pants, just put a scarf on your head. I can't remember the last time I was stared at so much. Men and women were gawking so much I was starting to feel like a freak show. I couldn't tell if they loved it, hated it, or were just curious if I was from "around here". But other than the awkwardness of being looked at all day, I liked having a scarf around my head, and so did my husband. I think I will do this more often! Especially on bad hair days!
I bought this shift dress on clearance at Charming Charlie's for only $20.00. Because of the color and texture, it is meant to be a fall/winter dress....which is why it was on clearance. But in my cold climate, I can wear it as a spring dress, and perhaps even on a cool summer day. In the winter, I'd probably just add leggings or tights, booties, and a cardigan. I love how versatile this dress is!
The bag I also picked up at Charming Charlies for only $12.00! Sometimes I'm so sad that they don't have a Charming Charlies in my hometown. But then I think that's probably a good thing; or I'd be broke! I stop at Charming Charlies every time I travel and I always pick up something.
The floral water color chiffon scarf I picked up at a discount store for only $5.00. I did so much shopping while in Florida, it's hard for me to remember where I purchased what. I think it was Ross.
My jewelry is super old. I think I got the pink beaded bracelet from JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts. I have no idea where these pretty earrings came from. I think I've had them since high school! Jewelry is something I rarely toss. If it becomes dated, I just move it to another jewelry box that stores items I don't wear as much. Eventually, it's vintage, and then I like it again! See, growing old does have some advantages! :)
And I'm happy to announce that I FINALLY got a pair of lace up flats! Yippee! I have wanted a pair since they came in style last year, but I could never find any in the shoe stores in my area. I got mine for only $20.00 at DSW, and they were so comfortable. I walked in these for hours, and my feet never hurt! HOWEVER, after one day the soles on the shoes are severely worn. I was so disappointed and said to my husband "That's what I get for paying less than $50.00 on a pair of shoes". I'm not sure how much more wear I will get out of them before they fall apart, so I'm back on the hunt again! This time, I will look for quality, as well as style!
I really enjoyed wearing this super comfy yet stylish outfit. That's what I'm all about: comfort with style! The loose fitting dress, the flats, and the scarf keeping my hair in place....all scream comfort to me.
So what about you? Have you tried wearing a scarf in your hair? Would you? And what is a comfortable yet stylish outfit for you? I'd love to hear from you!
