Family Inspiration

About 4 years ago my Mom and I spent Christmas in Connecticut with her cousin Emily and Emily’s family. Her daughter Jennie, so my 2nd cousin once removed or something complicated like that, who lived in NYC at the time, showed up wearing a gorgeous scarf that I couldn’t stop staring at. I had to have it. Imagine my happiness when she told me that she got it from a NY street vendor for $5. After Christmas there, we went into the city to meet up with Michael for a few days and guess what we did – look for that scarf! And I don’t give up easily when there is something I want. So find that scarf we did, along with a few others in different colors. But this one is still my favorite. I just love the vibrancy of the orange and red together, not sure the picture really does it justice. Unfortunately these scarves got stuck up high in the closet due to my lack of space and have been sort of forgotten about. Something reminded me of them yesterday so I pulled them down and knew exactly what I would wear today. All black just like Jennie, so the scarf could be the focus of the outfit. I decided to go with brown boots instead of black because I like they way they match the warm colors in the scarf. So thanks for the inspiration 4 years ago Jenni! : )

I won’t be posting tomorrow, but wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Hoping to have exciting news to share with you on Monday though (hint, it regards a thing, not a person). Also, stay tuned Tuesday for my January 1 item, 5 ways post. This month it will be a black sheath dress. Very excited to have Adrienne at Rich Life on a Budget participating as well!

The scarf was worth the search! You look great in bright colors. And the black off sets the color so well.

I am thrilled to be doing the black sheath post with you next week! xoxo, A
