Scarves, to me, are the ultimate accessory, particularly for moms. You can wash them, use them in a pinch for a nursing cover or a pillow for a sleepy toddler, distract a baby or small child while you're waiting, and you look more put-together when you're wearing one. Plus they come in all sorts of fun patterns and colors, and you can even make your own if you can't find what you're looking for.
|This is a fairly simple way to tie a scarf. In this picture,|
the length is hiding my post-baby tummy nicely!
|This scarf is much thinner and shorter and can only be|
tied one way or worn as a headband. It
pulls the outfit together, though!
|Another way to tie a scarf: wrapped around and around.|
The scarf doesn't have to "match" your top, either!
You don't have to match your scarf to your outfit, either, particularly if you're wearing a neutral top and jeans. This is where you can introduce the bold, colorful patterns.

|Bright patterned floral scarf with bright yellow sweater.|
Nice and dressy for Sunday Mass.
|Much more casual. Same bright floral scarf dressing up a tee.|
|Very bright and fun scarf, tied neckerchief style.|
Subtle pattern on the skirt, but otherwise all solid colors.

|Same scarf as in the first picture, but I'm not using it to hide|
anymore - just to stay warm on this day!
