Summer Trend - The head scarf

My favorite summer trend is the head scarf.  I love old stuff and old style. My hair is longer than it has been in many years and it spends a lot of time piled up on top of my head. The head scarf is the perfect finishing touch for a summer day. It also hides dirty hair. Shhhh. Spray on some dry shampoo, fluff it up and wrap it up. No one is the wiser.

Nobody's got time to spend brushing and curling their tresses and then get out in the Texas heat. So my go-to this season is a cool cotton dress, a great color lipstick, some baubles from my ears or neck and colorful head scarf. I knew I loved the look, but imagine my surprise while standing in line at the garden center this week and having a women come up behind me and say, "You just look darling in your dress and your scarf wrapped around your hair". A compliment never hurt my feelings!

Scarves are everywhere, I'll be willing to bet you've got some tucked away in your drawer from days past. You might even have some of your mom's or your grandmother's. They knew how to wear a scarf. And if you don't, they are always coming out of boxes at estate sales for $1 or $2. Even Target always knows a good thing, they've brought back a limited selection from Vera Neumann this summer.

What's that you say, you don't know how to wear a scarf? Well, just do a quick search and you'll find a ton of ways. Here's a quick and simple one, but the possibilities are endless.

Go ahead, tie one on!

This will be my last post for Etsy Fort Worth. I would like to say thanks for following along. I hope I've brought you some smiles and maybe taught you a few things about thrifting, vintage, dogs and gardening. I hope you've gotten to check out some of the places around town that you might not have found otherwise. We are pretty fortunate to live in a town so full of culture, art and possibilities. I'm proud to have been a part of the group, a part of leadership and I've met some amazing folks and will have lasting friendships. I've also gleaned a wealth of knowledge on running my business. Whether you are just starting out or are a seasoned indiepreneur, I encourage you seek out a group of individuals like  yourself to share and learn from. I know from experience there are days that you wonder if anyone else out there feels the way you do. Yes, they do! You just have to get out there and find them. Etsy Fort Worth is a great place to start.

for the love of dog,
