First Step to Spring Weather Style

Wasn't it groundhog day, the other day? Between both boys having the flu and a heavy workload, I'm seriously lost as to what day it is. Anyhow, found out the ole' hairy thing has determined spring is near.

Stores are filling up with pastels and all shades of green. Flowered leggings and yes, bikini's are all on display. Target and every other store has their winter items on ridic clearance and summer sandals buy one get one half off. How could my thoughts not be on spring?

First step to spring weather dressing - trade the heavy winter scarves for lightweight, floral scarves.

Yes, the braid is back! I'm lovin' it. And, I'm loving this jaded green, tunic-style blouse. had static,  no matter what I sprayed or rubbed on it! What do you ladies do to stop static on "silk" clothing? help!

Back to the scarf....and all the spring time awesomeness....

I first tried this "braided idea" on a scarf that had been so very neglected. The braid worked like a charm on that old scarf and I love the way it changes up the style of these wrinkly, lightweight scarfs.

It's uber easy to do.

Braid it like hair. I put the scarf on, cross and loop then start the braid. See what works best for you!

I paired it in a my mommy way with black skinnies and flats.
Looking back I think camel colored flats would have looked least I got out the house that day.

Just a week ago I wore the same top for a very last minute night out. It was clean and had more color than the white t-shirt I had been rocking.  I wore the same jeans I had worn all day, they most likely smelled like dog or toddler food or trash. But, when you're graciously offered a night out with your hunky man and friends happen to be around the block -doing what friends quickly get out of sight.

So I cuffed the jeans, threw on those Nine West wedges, and random pieces of jewelry. In route, I touched up the powder, layered on mascara and some stilla lip gloss. Voila, she's ready! hand her a drink ;)

So tell me, whats the trick for getting rid of static? Are you ready for spring?
........and, will you be trying the braided scarf idea?

and now, a letter to Mr. Flu,
good bye, good ridden flu bug. you sucked big ones. please don't ever come around again. you were mean and ugly and ruined some of our plans. it seems you're still lingering in the form of nasty congestion but at least the worst part of you is gone. we can now resume our normal lives, kleenex in hand.

I've been seeing braided scarves around the internet and I never got around to actually seeing how it is done... but Im glad you showed it because I def want to do it! IDK what I do about static...I think I usually just cry about it and vow to never buy that type of shirt again...that is until I spy another cute top of that material just moments later haha!

Lindsay @ Pursuit of Pink said...

Yay! Thanks for posting a quick tutorial on how to get the braided scarf. So cute.

Martha said...

I love that green shirt! I have something similar from Old Navy, and that color is perfect for spring.
Glad to hear you and your family is on the mend! bad flu!

Mary said...

Such a cute way to wear a scarf! I love it! Thanks for posting.


Katie said...

Laura said...

I love the green top on you! And the braided scarf idea is neat, I've never tried it, but definitely will.
Glad everyone's starting to feel better!

Unknown said...

I love that green, it just pops! I am going to try braiding my scarf, it looks cute!


Niki {Glossy Blonde} said...

I love the knot tie for the scarf! And both of your outfits! I love that shade of green, it's so pretty and bright and happy!

Traci Michele said...

I love it! Thanks!


Melissa said...

I love the braided scarf look!!! I'll definitely have to give that a try soon. :) Great tips and you look great in green!

Ches said...

Love, love, love that shade of green, it looks great. Your distressed jeans are super cute as well..Sorry to say I have no clue how to get rid of static have you tried looking for ideas on pinterest

Annie said...

LOVE the braided scarf! I never know how to tie a scarf so I'm bookmarking this! You have the best sense of style! As far as static goes, I usually try steam (if you don't have a steamer, you can always do the poor mans 'hanging it in the bathroom while you're taking a shower' route--that's what I do, ha) or rubbing it vigorously with a dryer sheet. I've heard spraying water or hairspray works too but neither seem to ever work for me.

Jen said...

I have never seen a scarf worn like this, I love it. :)

True, but don't put away the winter clothes yet - we still have a storm coming - lol. I love the braided scarf, will copy this style - thanks for sharing.

What a great new way to wear a scarf!! I personally love scarves, especially with a toddler on my hip who takes after her mama and loves all things sparkly...necklaces must now be worn with care! So happy I found your blog, I'll be following along!

I will certainly try the braided scarf...when I started reading, I thought, "How did she do that?" ...and you answered my question! Thanks!!! Looks great!! I was going to suggest hairspray for the static, too...

Lindsey A. Turner said...

cool idea with the scarf! love the color of your top!


Lindsay said...

Love that shade of green on you. And absolutely love the braided scarf. Thanks for the tutorial!

Unknown said...

Glad you're feeling better! I have never had the flu and never want it... The green is a great color on you! Never heard of a braided scarf- will have to try it. As for static cling- neither are fool proof but I try to have a travel size bottle of static guard in my purse (although this is my least preferred method because it smells and I don't trust it as much on silk) or a dryer sheet in a plastic baggie that I can rub on the inside of my shirt/skirt/dress etc

Unknown said...

Love that color! I'm the exact same way, I went wine tasting once and this chick asked me what was on my pants....well cracker crumbs and spit up thank you very much....she was obviously no mama haha

Joi @ Rx Fitness Lady said...

Hi! I'm visiting from A Lovely Blog hop. Love the shirt. I usually put lotion on my body to get rid of the static, but can't say that I remember specifically dealing with silk before. It's worth a try. Happy hopping. Joi @ Rx Fitness Lady. Http://

Unknown said...

Love the scarf tying! Oh my, I have the worst problems with static!! I use the static spray stuff and so far that has seemed to work. You have got to be the cutest mom ever!! Great post, always love reading what you have to say.


Anne said...

Ok, this idea just frickin' made my DAY. I'm a total scarf whore & am always down for new ways to wear 'em.

Thanks for sharing lady!!

Rebecca @ Herons Crafts said...

I love the scarf - it looks so cute with the braid on the side as well!

Ashley @TheCreamToMyCoffee said...

I love the braided scarf idea - so cute and creative! Also, I love the green top you paired it with. Green is my favorite color!

Unknown said...

I have to agree with the other commenters that the braided scarf is genius! It is so cute and works perfectly with that fabric. It also looks really good with the shirt, very springy!
