Ways to Wear Summer Scarves

As I got up early this morning and working on a lacy Spring/Summer scarf, I was in deep thought of the many ways a scarf can be worn and an ideal accessory for the warmer months.
I found a website with many different ways to tie and / or wear your scarves and thought I would share. Click HERE

As the Tapestry colorway yarn slips through my fingers this morning, I still love the peach tones in it. It's lacy and I believe one skein will make this scarf.
 
So for Twisted Tuesday, I thought you could look at the various twists and turns to make your fashion statement this Spring and Summer!
 
Abbie says good morning to all of you. She was what my husband calls "wigged out" two nights ago with some tremendous winds we had. She was climbing under chairs she has never been under and in the corners and completely tore up, stuffing and all, one of my Williamsburg pillows. I have never seen her so "wigged out" from a storm.
 
While it was not a fun thing to find my pillow in an irreparable state, I am so glad no trees or limbs fell on our house and cars. She still is the sweetest spot in my heart.

 
So try different way to incorporate your scarves in warmer weather. I was surprised by the results. Cotton and laces are the best.
What kind of ways do you like to wear you scarves in the warmer months?
 
Stay sweet,
Jennifer

    1. Yup, she is glad it's over. I find putting a T shirt on her helps a lot.

  2. I have always loved wearing scarves and the "look" of scarves. I don't do it much in the summer because I live in Mississippi and it's so terribly hot!! But I'm going to look over these and figure out if I could stand it in the heat!! I tend to look a little bit sloppy in the summer just because of the heat!!! It's time for a refreshed look!

  3. I know what night Abbie had a hard time. There were tornado watches and all in your area. Saw the weather watch for your area. Being in a wooded area like you are, I think you were very fortunate nothing was harmed. Abbie is a smart little lady. She knew it was bad outside.

    1. Yes, I saw a limp, big one just come tumbling down in the woods. We always hold our breath during windy storms as we have a lot of trees around the house.
      Dogs are very smart. She is one spoiled little love muffin!

  5. Poor poochie! Glad she got over it.
    Thin scarves could be used as headbands or to tie a ponytail. You can also use one as a shawl around your shoulders on a cool evening.

    1. Yes, I love those too. I tried to make this one lacey so it would remain cool in the warmer months. The pastel colors are just screaming Easter!
