Wardrobe Refashion: Skirt to Scarf

So, I have this very nice skirt that I got on a trip to the Pendleton Woolen Mills in Oregon some years ago. I think I wore it one time. But, I never got rid of it, because it was from this special place I visited on this special trip. Is anyone else too sentimental like that?....

Anyhow, I was in need of a scarf to wear with an entirely white outfit on a cold day. March 4th, to be specific--Stand Up for Schools day--where all teachers who received a lay off notice were to wear white, because we will be ghosts next year.... I like the symbolism, though I am not loving the lay off notice. But, that is not why I am writing this post. I had enough white items to make up an outfit, but they were not going to keep me too warm, standing in my school's parking lot on a chilly morning. I decided I needed a scarf and, of course, I didn't make this decision until the night before.

So.... here's what I did, as a pictorial. If you would like words to go along with it, please just ask and I will do my best to oblige.


  1. Hey, beautiful scarf! I've just come over from WR and I love your blog.

  2. Found you thru WR. Sorry about the lay off, The poor state of our education system in my soap box issue, and was even before I had a child. Your scarf is divine! Love it!
    Keep your head up, It's a tough economy but the right place for you is there!

  3. My sister is a teacher and is already worried about being a ghost next year. Here in AZ they are letting go of so many, my heart breaks for you all and our kids. I agree that you find the right place next year. The scarf is beautiful and love that it can still carry so many memories!
