When my friend Pam challenged us all to wear scarves for 30 days, I thought I would just be showing off some of the scarves that I made, keeping warm and taking selfies. The 30 days of scarf wearing was so much more than that and here is what I learned.
- Scarvember showed me that I am not as bad as I see myself. It’s no secret that I have been going through some body issues but donning a scarf daily AND taking a photo made me see that I am not as horrible/ugly/fat/ unattractive as I had led myself to believe.
- I also learned that I am very good at what I do. I always thought my yarnthings were so-so but after seeing them through the eyes of others I realize that I can give myself five and a pat on the back
- It didn’t add too much to my morning routine but when it did, so what? Getting dressed should be much more than pulling on saggy jeans and a roomy top. With scarvember I was challenged with finding something that matched the scarf that I wanted to wear that day. And it was FUN. I have always thought of fashion as this “thing” that I was not to me a part of but working an outfit to go with a scarf was actually not so bad.
- I wanted more. Instead of being content with rolling out of bed and grabbing saggy jeans and a baggy top, I wanted more. I wanted to be more than blah and more boom and it wasn’t too much to ask for or do.
Below are some pictures from my month of scarf wearing. I love the different looks and ideas that I rocked!
Thank you Pam for the challenge!
Tell me…what is your favorite way to rock a scarf?
