The purchase of a fair trade scarf from Connected in Hope can change someone's life as well as add some new life to quite a few ensembles. I ended up choosing a green scarf with white stripes (similar to this one)...and it showed up on my doorstep a few days later. As soon as I got it out of the envelope...I fell in love. It was beautiful, soft, lightweight, and very well-made...perfect for the Spring as well as the Summer. I wanted to tell the world about it as soon as I wore it...but vanity kicked in. I wanted to make sure I had a decent picture of myself wearing it before I advertised my new favorite scarf. My sister was kind enough to volunteer some of her time for my photo shoot...but the photographs did not do the scarf justice. This weekend, the fiance was kind enough to help me with another photo shoot...right before we headed out for a pre-Cana meeting with the priest. The photographs turned out wonderfully....and the scarf accented the whole look very beautifully. You can't see my eyes because of all the squinting (it was very sunny), but I the scarf brought out my green eyes very nicely.
|I love how this shade of green works with black and brown....|
