WIWW: Flag Scarf + Link Up

Wednesday, October 15, 2014


Last weekend Chris and I were on a hunt to get him some new fancy business shoes and a new belt that didn't look like it had been through a war. We hit the jackpot on some shoes from Marshall's, but it was a no-go in the belt department. Luckily, a couple stores down was Stein Mart and I just happened to have a store credit there from last Christmas.

In we went and right away spotted a belt that was perfect. But, since Chris had gotten four new suits (thanks to Jos. A Bank's buy one, get three free deal), a new pair of dress shoes, and a new belt, I figured it was my turn to get something.

I spotted this American Flag scarf and was in love. It is not too bright, so I won't scream "I love America!" everywhere I go, and it isn't too bulky. Some of those bulky infinity scarfs make me feel like I am a little swaddled baby trying to gasp for air.

Also, can we talk about this lighting that my husband managed to catch in these pictures? Way to go, hubby! These pictures were taken before I had actually gotten ready for the day, hence the sunglasses because I am wearing absolutely no make-up. Just trying to keep it real.
