Split Decision


Today I couldn’t decide to snood or not to snood. (Yeah, I went there.) So we took photos of both ways because that seemed like the easiest solution. So for those who like a simple look, images 1 and 3 are for you. For those who like a bit more complicated, see 2, 4, 5. And for everyone else who prefers neither, I fear that I have nothing for you. There is always this. You’re welcome.


Jacket: c/o Simply Audrey

Skirt: Similar

Tote: Madewell

Boots: Fossil

Snood: Similar

    Love it! But bare legs? Wowee. I'm jealous! I'm over here blowdrying chairs before I sit down to keep warm. 

    Also, pup in a cup is the cutest thing ever.

    That is a circular scarf, not a snood.  A snood is a fabric bag pinned at the back of the neck to hold hair.

    So after reading this, I'm like "what's a snood?" I scrolled through your pictures trying to find the difference in the pictures. Thinking maybe its a facial expression. Then I finally looked it up on Google and found out its a scarf. How could not have noticed a scarf is some pics and not in others? lol. Love the snood and love your skirt too!

    Ok, I'm confused. In theatre in college, a snood was a little thing ladies bundled their hair into in the 1920's and it was worn on the back of the head. Kind of a little chignon cover. The old-fashioned sock bun, if you will. This looks like an infinity scarf. What happened? 😀
