The Epic Fashionable Scarf
Pashmina (from the streets of NYC) / H&M jacket / Pacsun jeggings / American Eagle boots
I’ll start off this blog post by telling you all a funny story that goes along with this scarf. The first time I wore it out in public I was with my Dad while we drove to my brother’s college to pick him up for winter break. We stopped at a gas station to get some snacks for the ride home, and the woman cashier was just amazed at my scarf. “That scarf is so beautiful! You look so fashionable, you don’t see many girls around here wearing things like that!” I kind of laughed because 1. It’s just a simple, patterned scarf; 2. I bought it for probably $15 at H&M and 3. He went to college in a rural town only about 2 hours from where we lived, so I assume people dress the same at both places. Maybe this lady isn’t used to seeing scarves or maybe she was predicting my future as a fashion blogger, but hey- I appreciated the compliment.
Well DUH! You ARE so fashionable 🙂 That is a cute story- and that very worthy of that scarf! It’s a great pattern and color 🙂
It’s definitely a pretty scarf…love the color! And love your boots 🙂
Haha aww, that’s a cute story! Love the scarf! So pretty.
That cashier was right! As a fellow scarf lover, I hardly go a day without one, they’re my favorite accessory.
It was a must in the freezing cold weather!
Someone’s looking incredibly cool & chic today….& that’s you Rachel!!! I also have a similar scarf & I practically live in it!!!
aw thank you!
Haha, maybe scarves hadn’t made their way to that town! I only live about an hour south of NYC and people definitely don’t dress the same here!
haha see- exactly!
I love an item of clothing with a story! So cute.
Aw! It’s always so nice to receive a great compliment like that! I love your outfit!
thank you. Yes- even compliments from gas station employees can help my day!
I love the scarf! It IS totally fashionable and super cute.
Your scarf is really beautiful! It looks much more expensive that $15! No wonder the lady was impressed.
haha! thanks Lauren
LOL that is a funny story! People make me laugh 🙂 It is very fashionable! I love the color of it 🙂
Pretty scarf! I have a similar one in grey! Obviously that woman doesn’t get out enough! haha
By the way, I love the new design!
hahaha you’re right! Thanks for the design compliment Allyssa!
haha people are just like that in texas – they think because you wear this or that, then you deserve to live in some swanky nyc apartment… um no, this is just forever 21 😉
exactly! small town girls can be fashionable, too!
I love that scarf… the colors are gorgeous!
why thank you!
It really is a fabulous scarf!! I love the pattern and the colors!
It’s really cute! You should have given her directions to the closest H&M 😉
Haha. That’s a cute story! I love the scarf. 🙂
That is a nice scarf! I like the way it pops against the white coat. I’ve been dying for a lighter colored coat but I’m so clumsy that thing would be a constant mess!
it’s great for fall/spring, but yes- I have to wash it all the time from spills!
it’s always funny what other people think of as fashionable. the scarf is beautiful, but i really love your boots!
thank you Grace! 🙂
