Special Scarf

My mom is a bit of a world traveler. She always comes back with amazing stories, pictures and of course special gifts. This time she went to Indonesia and she brought me this scarf.

Look at all the pretty colors and the details of the pattern. I love it. I wore this outfit on a date night out with my husband. I was a little warm when we left, but chilly by the time we got home. Oh, fall.

Do you have any special gifts from overseas?

P.S. My red has faded quite a bit and I’m thinking of dying it from a box this time. Any suggestions?

  1. I love that color of blue! Scarfs are totally my go-to accessory in the fall/winter. I tend to stick to solid colors, or simple designs, but now that I see that scarf on you it makes me reconsider a more elaborate design (it is just beautiful!). I’m not sure if I shared this video about red hair with you before, but in case I didn’t:

    I know her hair is probably brighter than what you’re going for (if I remember the pics you first posted of your new hair correctly πŸ™‚ ) but there’s this protein color filler that she recommends in #10 red red that I think would make your color last longer out of the box. Last year I helped a friend with dyeing her hair red and we used this and it really did make a difference.

  2. This is gorgeous!! The scarf works perfectly with the outfit, and I’m such a fan of bringing brights into fall!

  3. Beautiful! You look great.

  4. That blue looks STUNNING on you! I am obsessed with your scarf – this color scheme is so perfect for fall. One of my favorite looks on you by far, girlfriend!

  5. I love that color! And it is absolutely amazing on you! (And I love your shoes!)

  6. That color scarf & lipstick is AMAZING on you! To die for!

  11. Your blue scarf is so vibrant and pretty! I love this classic look.

  12. That scarf is so, so gorgeous! I wish my mama was a world traveler (if only so I could get the spoils!) Your hair actually looks great right now–less of a red and more of an auburn. I’d love to see what you decide!

  13. Your hair looks super amazing in these pictures. I like the darker look, but the red is also amazing. I always go red and then it fades in two weeks and I’m bored. Oh, hair woes. Also what lipstick are you wearing? It’s so lovely!

  14. Aw, that scarf is such a nice gift from your mom. The blue looks really nice on your skin tone/hair color. Great choice πŸ™‚
    My special gifts from over seas include cups, shopping bags, and russian dolls.
