My Sunday Affair With Graphic Prints

Well another weekend is almost over and another work week is about to begin.  Even though I'm thankful that I still have a job, Sunday's make me sad.
I try to do a post on Sunday since I don't have time during the week.   This is what inspired me today.
One of the spring trends is graphic prints.   I went shopping in my closet and came up with this striped cardi and graphic scarf.  I have been collecting scarves for years and have quite an extensive collection.  I personally think they give an outfit more bang for your buck than any other accessory.
I also enjoy trying new ways of wearing them.  Take a look at the close up and you will see one end is buttoned into the pocket while the other end is tucked in.  I'm not sure if I like the end result and if I were going to wear it out I would probably secure the tucked side with a pin.

I will be using this post to link up with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday and  Two Birds for Inspiration Monday.  They always have the cutest ladies to inspire me to get together something I wouldn't usually think to wear.  Today I chose door #3 or chickie #3.  The leggings and long shirt are a weekend staple for me.  However the white blouse looked to blah so I took inspiration from the print on her top and inserted the scarf.
So stop by and visit.  Be inspired and visible!

What should be inspiring me is the vacuum cleaner even though it's a bright, shiny, red it just isn't doing it for me today.  So, for now I'll just entertain myself by entertaining you!

  1. Is that a fendi Scarf and where is your cleavage like the girl in the photo? Hahaha...Tammy, you look so much happier in this photo, I hope things are going better. Sunday's used to be depressing for me until I stopped working a job that I didn't want to go to on Monday. I know how you feel. Sorry, girl. It sucks. On a lighter note, you do look like a hot mama I love the bold scarf with the striped cardi...classy and tasteful. Gorgeous outfit on you. Dawn Suitcase Vignettes xo I hope your week is a bearable one.
