Fashion Wednesday #10: Magic Scarf and Mean Momma

I know you've seen some of these pics before, but since our weather has taken a nasty turn in the last few days and my fashion consists of rain coat, rain boots, sweater, jeans and/or sweat pants and pajamas, I think I'll post some pics from way back a month ago when the hubby and I were cruising.
My mom bought this scarf island hopping and graciously passed it on to me when she heard that I was going on a cruise. It definitely came in handy! I found out that you change clothes a lot when you're on a cruise--this scarf made wearing the same thing and changing clothes one and the same. The far right outfit (scarf as shirt with pants) was worn to breakfast because it was a bit chilly and I knew we would want to take a stroll around the ship after breakfast. The outfit on the far left (scarf as shirt tucked into skirt) was what I wore out into Freeport to walk on the beach, and the outfit in the middle (scarf as dress) is what I wore to go lay out and read on the deck of the ship. See? It's a great scarf!
And for your viewing enjoyment:
This is an example of how we handle chilly spring days around here; we try to wear spring dresses with lots of layers. This is a pic of my oldest comforting my youngest because she had to wear that shawl. For some reason the youngest was dead set against it, and her mean momma thought it would be the perfect thing to ward off the chill.

  1. I love your scarf....that is sweet of big sister helping her little sister. Isn't it great to watch our children grow in love and compassion for one another!

  2. "You are a mean lady. I don't like you." Said with a scowl and a pointed finger. Bwahahaha.

  3. What a versatile accesssory! Happy WW.

  4. The picture of your oldest comforting your little is too sweet. You'd never see that shot here.

  5. What a sweet picture of the sisters. I love it!

  6. I love seeing children showing such character at a young age. Your daughter has seen compassion modeled. What a kind heart she has.


  7. It's amazing the small things that can bond a big sis and little sis. I remember a few moments like this with my two sisters...thanks for sharing :)

  9. Beautiful scarf! I love how creative you were with how to wear it. I have a huge scarf that I neglect... I'll have to give it more consideration now. :)

    Adorable little girls!!

  10. Wow. You and the scarf look great. Next blog you have to teach us (or me) how to tie it so many different ways.
