Love for Linen & Infinity Scarves

Today’s Pantone color for the Spring Color Challenge is Linen.  I could have taken it literally and went with my new linen shorts from Loft, but I opted to go with the general color.  Sometimes that linen color can be tricky as it can wash me out, so I decided to add my coral infinity scarf to give the outfit an extra pop.  Infinity scarves are one of my favorite accessory–it’s half scarf, half necklace- GENIUS!

Shoes: TOMS (wore as a bridesmaid last fall!)
Jeans: AE
Sweater: Old Navy (similar)
Scarf: J.Crew Factory (coral not available, but there are other nice colors!)

And although I’d like to participate in Jenni’s Blog Every Day in May Challenge, I just don’t see it happening, but I will jump in on today’s topic!

Day 2, Thursday: Educate us on something you know a lot about or are good at. Take any approach you’d like (serious and educational or funny and sarcastic).

My list would include items like:
-couponing/finding good deals (in fact, everything I bought above was either on sale and/or had a coupon!  I also coupon a ton at the grocery store and drug store…)
-marketing/social media/PR– I work in this field, so I would hope I know a little somethin somethin! 🙂
-eating chocolate and other baked goods.  I’m a champ.
-Bravo TV programming, particularly The Real Housewives.  PS- when are they doing a Real Housewives of Chicago?!

What would be on your list?

And here’s my Pantone recap from earlier in the week:

  1. I wanted to wear TOMS for my wedding, but they didn’t go with my dress. Boooo. I did my post on how to avoid doing laundry, although I don’t think many people need help with that! =)

    • It really adds a pop of color with a fun scarf! And coral is such a beautiful color- especially with darker hair like yours! And don’t worry- those shorts made their debut when we had 80 degree weather so I will have to blog about them soon! Thanks Marissa!

  4. I love infinity scarves, and I’ve been looking for a nice coral colored scarf for AGES! I love this one! I also really like your sweater – it looks so versatile and remixable 🙂

  5. I love your list. And that eating chocolate is on it. I am good at photoshop. Think… editing blemishes, swapping heads from other photos, making things look real that didn’t happen. Ha ha.

    I love turning my scarves in to infinity scarves! I am doing that with one today! 🙂
