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.

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.

  11. 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!

    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.

  17. 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.

  24. 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! :)

  25. 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.

  26. 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

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