she's a trucker's dream










Big trucks aren’t really my thing.

But neither are sappy country songs about love, loss, and their tractors. Yet, I have come to appreciate and even love the southern twang and heartbreak enough to integrate a select few into my daily playlists. I listen to them now almost as often as I wear this sweater – which is a lot (and is becoming a small problem…). I’m sure my friends and family are about ready to hide it from me. This scarf gives it a new life, and its miles of vintage floral fabric keep me pleasantly warm and colorful. It might even transform my feelings for wearing jeans rather than dresses this fall. No such luck for the trucks though.

  36. I was just looking at that scarf this weekend, and passed it up because I thought the print might be a little too granny. But you wear it so well, it's making me rethink my decision.

  41. I love that scarf, gorgeous vintage florals. I know what you mean about wearing one item of clothing all the time, my mum has literally had to remove a jumper of mine when I refused to take it off - it was the comfiest thing ever!

    Thanks for your sweet comments lovely, I really appreciate them.

  42. Love this look! The bright bold floral and those adorable flats are just wonderful elements.

    I'm not much of a truck person either, but I think the mix here feels right in a quirky way.
