Little Flowers


My outfit is showing hints of Spring now. The weather has been warmer these past few days, although there'e still humid (the most annoying of all). But I'm feeling up because we took these photos late in the afternoon but you can't tell they were, right? It's still bright out, which means I gotta be hopeful that Spring is just around the corner. Now enough of the weather, let's talk about the outfit. So I saw quite a couple of bloggers who donned this kind of bow with thin scarves and got me interested so I tried doing the same. It's actually a really great way to spice up a dull shirt (not that this floral shirt is one). Lucky for me, I own a couple of vintage scarves from my aunt. She used to have an antique store selling, well, anything antique (that includes vintage right?). Before her family moved to the US, my mom got a couple of the stuff she used to sell, and some now belong to me. So I got these scarves and I always wondered how I'd put them to use. Now I know =) I'll show you the others next time. I must have gotten a close-up shot of the prints though. The blue background and golden stars depict a night sky, a definite contrast to my otherwise very "daylight" shirt full of flowers. I think they looked good together anyway. What do you guys think?

Cheers, Carla
