V-Day Redux

Do you ever buy something with the thought that it would be great to wear on [insert holiday here]?

Buying things for specify holidays is silly. And it makes you no better than the women who wear those novelty printed mock turtleneck shirts on every holiday there is. 
V-Day Redux
Still, when I bought this scarf I thought, "this would be good to wear on Valentine's Day." Then I didn't wear it on Monday, so I'm wearing it today, just to make a point. It may be pink, covered in hearts and keys, but I can wear it all year long.

Cute scarf and you can wear it all year. Those mock neck turtlenecks kill me...lol

The Fancy Teacup said...

Heck, you can totally wear that outfit any day of the year, it's so pretty! Of course the scarf and necklace steal the show, but I couldn't help but notice the pretty fringe detail on your boots!

You absolutely can wear that scarf any day you want! It looks great.

I'm not one who loves or even likes holiday themed anything. My clothes, my house . . . nada. But you still look cute!

hahaha...totally picturing my teacher's aide from 3rd grade. That scarf is great, though - I think the keys are what make it not just a V-day scarf.

This scarf is a far cry from holiday-themed mock turtlenecks! And definitely wearable year-round. It really brightens your outfit up. And I love the key and heart theme carried over to your necklace.

Krystal said...

It's a sassy scarf, I like!

Melanie said...

What a beautiful scarf, I would wear it all year round!

TrophyBoutique said...

That scarf certainly deserves to be worn more than on just one day. I looove the bright color. Very lovely on you.

Rebecca said...

That scarf is really cute. It is good for valentine's Day, but would also look good year round.

Isabel said...

that scarf is so cute!

Amber Blue Bird said...

that scarf is wicked cute, way to go cute to only be worn one day out of the year :)

Stefany said...

I love your scarf! I have made the same mistake in the past, buying items for specific holidays. Then I realized, hey if I like it enough, I can wear it whenever I want! :)

Shey said...

I'm not a big fan of jeans outfits but I must say this one is pretty cute and I think the focal point is the beautiful scarf.

Melissa: Write it in Lipstick said...

oh I like how your necklace matches your scarf. I love the pop of color. Good for you to wear it on a non Valentine's day

Write it in lipstick

That scarf is lovely and the perfect colour! I can't get enough of keys.

Alex Elizabeth said...

You're right, that's a great Valentine's scarf but it's also a great any day scarf! I love your necklace (been eyeing the Tiffany keys but so expensive), and of course you made it, I should have guessed!

Iris said...

Haha I do stuff like that all that time, that's why I am a shopping grinch now. Alot of stuff would get left behind...

gypsyroxylee said...

That scarf is beautiful and the color looks great on you! Love the thrifted Banana Repulic sweater too! How I wish I was half that lucky at finding anything that fabulous!

I do my best to stay away from seasonal products but I think hearts can be worn throughout the year.. unlike Christmas trees.
