Daily Outfit - Kate - 2/23/10

I'm about a billion times happier with today's pictures than with yesterdays, though it's not like I like the outfit all that much more or anything.

This was pretty basic, but I really just wanted to wear the shawl - I call this my 'Stardust Shawl' because the color reminds me of Una's dress in Stardust, and it's one of my favorites :-)

This is how I wear it when I've got my coat on:

Bandana style, with my pin clipped in front so it doesn't get squished. Then when I get to work/home/whatever, I switch it like this:

which I think is a little bit more visually interesting.

The little flower pin is one of my favorite accessories; I bought it from a friend I made at a craft fair last fall. The clip is wrapped in grosgrain ribbon so it could be used as a hair clip, but I always use mine on handknit shawls and scarves :-)

Shawl: Handknit by me. Yarn by Fearless Fibers, pattern is "Shetland Triangle" by Evelyn A. Clark
Turtleneck: Target
Skirt: thrifted
Tights: Hellmart
Boots: Born, fall/winter 2008
Earrings: MUMSIE!
Shawl pin: My Beautiful Bows (contact info available by request)

That's a beautiful way to wear it (non-coat). The pin is a great touch.

I don't know what that second shawl style is called, but I love it!

Such a pretty pin, and I really like both the ways you wear the shawl. I never wear scarves, but maybe I should start thinking about it!
