I often get asked, “Do you ever get bored? Do you ever run out of new ways to tie your scarves?” The answer is, gratefully, “nope!” Even if I owned 10 scarves (believe me, I have quite a few more than that!), there would still be an infinite amount of tying options.
So here is a new style that I came up with yesterday! It is surprisingly easy. Who wants a tutorial?
And here is another variation on the criss-cross that I have tried, with only one scarf:
A very generous reader all the way across the ocean thought of me while shopping, and sent me this stunning beaded band in the mail! It’s such a perfect hair wrapping accessory; I decided to wear it for the holiday of Sukkot paired with a green, flowered scarf. Thank you!!!
(Yep, these photos were snapped pre makeup and earring almost falling out – there was so much cooking and running around to do before the beginning of the holiday!)
The dress I wore was a gift from my husband! It is one of those “covers all” dresses that I don’t need to wear anything else over in order to be comfortably modest. It’s from the vintage section of etsy (very affordable!) and is perfect for the nippy weather!
Sheer, jewel-toned knitted cotton, and patterned, dark green silk. What a beautiful combination!
In terms of what I wore with it, my 13 year old self would be scandalized! When I was a teenager, I had very strict ideas about what matched (don’t ask me where I got these rules from). Dark shirt grey with black pants? Never! Complimentary colours together in one outfit? Never! Needless to say, my grey skirt, dark teal shirt and warm jean jacket would have never been allowed out of the house!
But times have changed! Here is the dark yet warm yet neutral outfit that I paired with the wrap! (Excuse my “Zoolander” face – I haven’t figured out the timer on my camera yet!)
This past weekend, the Jewish people celebrated Yom Kippur. There is so much to say about this holiday (it’s my favourite – wrote about that here) but in terms of hair covering, many people choose to wear all white. I found that wearing all white with a white tichel is a challenge – it’s easy to enter bathrobe and towel zone! Here is what I came up with!
The wrap consisted of two scarves and one lace sash (thank you hubby!) They were layered and twisted over my head (for the second day of the holiday I did two twists – I liked that more!) and tied in the back:
I found beautiful light and sparkly earrings to match, as well as a big gold flower to hold the wrap together. (This was the only colour in the whole ensemble.)
The white clothes were a beautiful cotton dress, with a white shell and ruffled white skirt underneath.
And of course, white shoes!
For those of you that celebrated, I hope that you had a cleansing, cathartic, and connected day. Much love to ALL of my readers. You are such an inspiration!
