Handmade Trove: Ombre Pink Scarf by Smiles by JEM

Think Pink Scarf by Smiles by JEMLast weekend, I adorned myself from head to toe in pink for a breast cancer awareness 5K in Delaware. That's not an exaggeration - I wanted to show off my new bright pink scarf from Smiles by JEM, but it was too warm in the morning to wear around my neck, so I tied it into a headband instead! By afternoon, it was even hotter (did I mention I got sunburned in OCTOBER?!) so I tied it around my waist instead. I'm impressed that the scarf was versatile enough for me to wear in gorgeous 80-degree weather.

Isn't it cool how the colors fade from flamenco pink to light pink in an ombré style? The pink cotton scarf is handwoven and measures measures 17" x 70."

  1. Love the pink! And that's great that it can be worn so many different ways.
    Janelle and Megan have a great company!

  2. The scarf is beautiful! I almost wore one the other day, but I knew by 10:00 it would have warmed up enough to where I'd sweating! I need to wait awhile before pulling out all my Fall favorites!

  3. Wow, that scarf is really pretty and I love how versatile it is.

  4. Now I would say that is improvising, what a great tribute to support BCA.
