Let's Chat | Tying Scarves

Happy Cinco de Mayo, amigas y amigos! I've got plans for chips and margaritas on a patio tonight...sure hope the weather is on board with my fiesta plans. As long as it's not raining, we'll be good to go, and I'll likely be wearing some variation of my Spring Uniform.

You know from my Power of One post the impact a great scarf has on a basic outfit...and there's no question I'm a fan of them myself.

But one question seems to pop up every time I wear one....'How do you tie your scarf?!'

I don't have a secret, never-heard-of-before method of tying and wearing my scarves, in fact, I thought there was only one way, and that's how everyone wore them. But apparently there are 100s of ways to wear and tie a scarf. #thankspinterest #sarcastichashtag

So I'll show you mine if you show me yours?

Hi Sugarplum | How to Tie a Scarf

I prefer infinity scarves, because they do all the work for you. But if I fall in love with a traditional scarf, this is how I tie it to resemble an infinity.

Sidenote: This works best with thinner, gauzy scarves. Trying this method with a blanket scarf may result in suffocation. #tieatyourownrisk #hisugarplumandheraffiliatesarenotresponsible #Idontactuallyhaveaffiliates


1) Center the scarf in front of you.

2) Wrap the ends behind your head without pulling the scarf all the way back.

3) And cross them them to the front.

4) Loosely tie just the ends.

5) Grab the edge of the loop, pull it to the top layer,

6) And wrap it over the ends.

7. Fluff and smile at your darling neck adornment. If the scarf has fun tassels, I'll let the ends poke out...if not, I tuck them under the loop.

Apparently the final step is to make out with your photobombing pup. Nobody panic...she's licking my chin. I save my real kisses for Mr. SP.

Did you learn anything new or is this how you've always tied your scarves? And sorry for wearing sunglasses, but I didn't want my allergy-eyes distracting you from the uber-important task at hand.

Speaking of sunglasses...did you see Nordstrom has most every Ray Ban style 25% off right now?! I'm a long-standing member of the cheap sunglasses club, but when I posted the sale on Facebook yesterday, you guys raved and insisted they were worth the splurge. Hey Mr. SP....Mother's Day is this weekend, and it's sure to be a sunny one! ;)

So let's chat....how do you wear and tie your scarves?

{Top Ten} April

{Top Ten} April?! Already??? How is it May? How do we have just five more weeks of school? How did Kate look that good only 10 hours after having her second royal baby?! And how long do we have to wait for her name?! So many questions!

April was a crazy month, mostly consumed with the {One Room Challenge}, but we did manage to slip some other projects, and a bit of fashion, in the mix. For those who took a blog-reading sabbatical, here's the {Top Ten} posts of the last month.

We kicked the month off with Week 1 of the {One Room Challenge}, followed by Weeks 2-5 with the design boards, floor plan, new wall color, bedding & pillows, and drapes! Whew! Stay tuned...the final reveal is coming up Wednesday! #Lordwilling

I stepped outside my comfort zone with a body-conscience dress...then styled it two ways in Day to Night.

I created these quirky planters, along with five other recycled projects, for a fun Earth Day feature in Parade's Community Table.

Banish those pale legs with my tips & tricks for sunless tanning.

It's finally warm again, so I shared my tips for How To Transition to Spring.

Look for Less has become one of the most popular posts, and there were some good ones in this latest round-up.

Our sweet Babygirl celebrated her birthday with another Art Party...complete with a colorful Splatter Cake.

Here's {5 Ways} to Wear Maxi Dresses..some of which you might not have thought of!

We built this Console Table. Like with our own four hands. Except it was so easy, you really can't call it building...nor does it require four hands.

Aye-aye-aye...tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo! Here's a fun table I set for a recent fiesta dinner party.


And finally, we had Vol. 12 of Sugarplum Style...that mostly involved me recycling my favorite military jacket every other day.



May is set to be a doozy...we've got the Master Bedroom reveal, final Kitchen reno updates, more fun Spring fashion, and a couple of trips planned! I hope you'll follow along! Happy Monday, lovebugs!
