Red and Black

11 Aug

I started thinking today that I wore the perfect outfit last night for the stock market.  Lately, there’s been so much volatility that it seems they can’t decide whether we should be in the red or black, so why not both?  Turns out that this is a pretty good choice for clothing.

Oh, that last one is me eating in the car on the way to our church small group (again).  At least this week it was healthy stir-fry instead of fast food.  Just thought you might want to see how organized I am…you know, by eating in the car and being 15 minutes late.  Other people have this problem too, right?  Oh, as for what I’m wearing, it’s Target, Gap, Fossil, and gifted items….can you guess what is what?

    This made me think of the song from Les Miserables about red and black…:) Saw lots of red and black when I was at the mall today. Also, my friend, Emily, LOVES your blog. She friended you on facebook. She is quite a fashionista, herself. Thought that would make your day! 🙂

    I like it! How do you get the scarf to stay put though? When I try to wear scarves like that they pop off the back of my head. Maybe my head is too pointy?

      Hah! I can assure you that you head is not too pointy! I often have that problem too, but this past time I did two things to fix it. (1) I folded into layers to make it skinny enough and bobby pinned one of the bottom layers to keep it in place while hiding the bobby pins with the top layer. (2) I tied it around my pony tail holder so it wouldn’t move around at the back of my head either. Both worked great, and I think that will be my go-to way to wear them now! Hope it works for you too!

    You rock that headscarf well! Kudos. Love the red and black. They always pop off my head too, so I’m going to try your tips.

    […] been reading the blog for awhile, you’ve seen me wear scarves quite a bit (like this, this, this, and this).  So I knew right away my pop of color would be a scarf.  Recently, I saw another […]
