Fashion Twist!

I have a few silky scarves that various members in my family have brought back from trips in Italy and have passed on to me! I wanted to find a new way to wear these scarves and after getting this beautifully patterned one from my grandma...

...and I remembered a magazine article I read somewhere a long time ago that mentioned folding large square scarves into halter tops! To do it, start by folding the scarf in half to make a triangle:

Then take the triangle part at the top (the right triangle made by two ends coming together) and tie it around your neck like this:

Now you have the scarf hanging off of you with lots of folds. Smooth out some of the folds and get it to a spot where you can tie the other two ends around your waist without it bulging and giving you a weird shape. (You may want to fold it under a little and then tie it):

So I have tied the scarf and then tucked the loose ends in to make it look smoother. You don't have to wear the t-shirt if you are really daring or just using it as a cover up at the pool, but I prefer the t-shirt!
Here is the final look:

This picture is shaped a little oddly and it does look better in person... give it a try! I think it's fun, especially with the long butterfly necklace! :)

My dad's garden is thriving and we have been lucky enough to harvest some yummy tomatoes! 



Bruschetta!! Made with tomatoes, white onion, and some fresh basil from our basil plant! Mmm perfect meal for a cool summer evening if you ask me! 

Biscuit decided to play peek-a-boo on top of our TV entertainment center:

He is just too cute for words! 

Tomorrow there will be some pictures of my finished shawl and a shawl pin I made as well as some new projects I am casting on! 


  1. The scarf is so pretty! Love the halter idea. OO man the tomatoes look yummy!

  2. Thanks! I thought it was a fun idea! And they were quite tasty! :)

  3. That is a good idea for the scarves! I don't have any but if I did I wouldn't have known what to do with them. That is what I would do now!

    Your cat is too adorable!

    1. Thanks! It is pretty neat, isn't it?

  4. What a cute little kitty!
