I'm a sucker for taking floral printed scarves and wearing them with stripes. There. I said it.
Call it a guilty pleasure, easy fall back or just plain, uninspired laziness, I can't help it. That's why, when ModCloth sent me this Paisley Panache Scarf, I literally had to restrain the initial urge to resort to my go-to. Granted, I still wore the stripes, but I like to think that my little DIY head turban idea was a small window of breaking my habit.
Baby steps, people, baby steps.
This of course marks the third installment of the Spring Fever Blogger Challenge, which admittedly, I have been wayyyyy behind on. I'm up against some stiff competition, though, so I feel pretty honored to even be included in the bunch. Of course, if you'd like, (I know I would like it) you can vote here for your favorite look.
On a much more general note, posting should be getting back to normal over the next couple of days. I claim temporary insanity, i.e. lack of sleep and too many nights on an air mattress. Speaking of which, yours truly now has an actual bed as the Ikea gods were kind to me the other day.
But the real thanks goes to Dan, who was a good sport after finding out the box spring didn't quite fit into the elevator and pretty much heaved the thing up five flights of stairs. (I pushed and guided as much as wearing a skirt and heels would allow. Thanks Dan!)
