wear it // thirty-six
Years ago I gifted this scarf to one of my best friends. It’s colorful, and weird, and cozy – just like her! Then one day I borrowed it, and never returned it (confessions of a bad friend). It’s not like i’m hiding the scarf. I wear it around her. It’s actually taken on some duel-custody, which I totally don’t deserve because I swiped a birthday present that I gifted. And what kind of friend does that?
But let’s move past the scarf swiping onto the wide brimmed hat and pleated leather skirt combo, shall we? Subdued colors, a couple patterns, and a variety of textures does a winter outfit make. Though if i’m really going to make it through winter, I should probably toss on a coat.
Now, back to the confessions of a bad friend. Do you buy your friends gifts that you (secretly) want? Have you ever kept a gift you bought for someone else?
