officially cursed.

soooo...two weeks ago, i received this fun, adorable package, covered in stickers and colorful tape - and it evidently looked like it's made it's way all over the United States! inside the package was a knitted grey scarf, trinkets, a map, instructions, and notes from the other bloggers who participated in this fun little project, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Scarf. lovely lady friends like Tiekah and Linley plus a number of others got the chance to model the scarf, too - so it was super fun to read the blog posts and follow the map to see where the scarf had made it's appearance. also everyone that participated in this project attached a little trinket to the scarf - from hearts to flowers to pins. i decided to add one of my poppies from my garland headbands! 

 oversized tee: c/o Lamixx / shorts: GAP / scarf: borrowed from Sisterhood of the Traveling Scarf (scarves.net)/ flats: c/o Bait Footwear / eyeshadow: Urban decay 

so remember how i mentioned there were instructions in the box?
um...yeaaaah, the instructions said to get the scarf back on the trail in a week.
if you don't, you get bad luck or some curse or something. eeek! 
and i totally failed that rule.
with it being way too hot in these parts of the US, i couldn't get myself to wear a knitted scarf.
soooo...if some bad things head my way, we all will know why, won't we? cross your fingers!

let's hope it brings some good luck to the next participant, Kristina of Simply Bold
can't wait to see how she rocks it!

much love.
