Everything you've come to expect

Short Stripe Fringed Shawl Scarf - Beige

           It was about time I wore something more colorful, right? It seems I've been stuck in a rut lately and I've been drawn to darker clothes more often than not. And it wasn't just the winter at fault, although many people tend to match the gloomy weather with equally gloomy colored clothes. We are in a long term relationship, so I guess from time to time I just return to my my love of black and grays. This weekend I came back to my hometown to celebrate my dad's birthday and because I was in such a celebratory mood I only packed colorful clothes. The weather was super nice as well and this was the perfect outfit for taking my daughter to the park.
          As you might have noticed, I have a big thing for over sized scarves, they are so versatile and I could get them in every print and color out there. This one comes in a beautiful striped print in muted colors, it has a square shape so you can drape it over your shoulders as a shawl or wrap it around your neck as I did here. I chose the colors of the rest of my outfit in more vibrant tones, but within the same color palette.
          My other obsession this season is cropped jeans. I bought these ones in a thrift shop last year for a diy project I had in mind, and I cut the hems and frayed the ends. You can see the result in this post here. Then this year I decided to give them another update so I cut them some more, to obtain that crop length. I cut the front a bit more than the back, and then frayed the edges once again. I can see myself wearing this pair all season. And to think that up until a few years ago you could rarely spot me in a pair of jeans, or in pants for that matter. I was always wearing skirts and dresses, even during winter time. Now, as a mom, I find jeans a lot more comfortable and I get more freedom of movement.
