A Navy Scarf and Link-Up

Today has to begin with the biggest Happy Birthday to my grandma! She turns a fabulous, youthful 80 today!! You’d never know it if you spent any time around her. I am absolutely blessed with the best grandparents a girl could ask for, and grew up four houses down from them. I hate not being there today, but I know she will visit with me on this little blog of mine and know I’m thinking of her!

 It’s also an exciting day here on Darling, Dearest because I have the privilege of co-hosting the Thursday Fashion Files with Carrie and Jill:)! Such sweet ladies, it’s a joy to be able to tag along with their link-up this week!

I need to apologize to my Instagram followers for how often I wear this scarf. It is unbelievably soft, and so easy to throw on with so many outfits. And can I just say, these sunglasses are amazing. My photographer has a super stylish little sister (like – she puts me to shame) who might have left them in his car, which I might have happened to grab for these pictures… and now want for myself.

    What a pretty look! The scarf is great so it’s no wonder you wear it a lot!!! I’m amazed how you can get your curly hair so straight!!! It looks amazing both ways.

    • I think it’s crazy that to get it straight I curl it- just doesn’t make sense! But it’s nice to change it up now and then… I just don’t like the time it takes to do that ha:). Thank you, Betsy!

  • Aww, happy birthday to your grandma! I love everything about that look!! The scarf looks like one that goes with everything–I’d wear it all the time too! And that clutch is so gorgeous–love the color.

    • Ahhh that deep purple color of the clutch has made a sucker out of me! I’m finding ways to grab it all the time. I tend to latch on to certain pieces, and this outfit just had them all:)! Thanks, Shea!

  • I love this scarf. Aren’t they great for layering or sprucing up an outfit.
