Scarf/Skirt.

I'm not sure what made me decide that I should take the black and white tie-dye scarf from around my neck and tie it around my waist for the day in a scarf/skirt hybrid, but I did.

And I quite enjoyed having it there!

Also, has anyone been watching the paralympics?
The UK have two golds already, one won by the youngest ever British medal holder, Ellie Simmonds! She is only 13 and won in the S6 category of the 100 metres freestyle swimming.
The disability she has is the same as my younger brother's (achondroplasia - dwarfism) and the bro himself is hoping to get to London 2012 to compete in athletic events if he trains hard enough.

I, however, am bereft of all sporting genes and can hardly kick a ball, nevermind anything else! Anyway, I'm very proud of our paralympians today! =]

  6. Perhaps bereft of sporting genes, but not of style genes. Very clever, this scarf/skirt.

  7. I have a whole pile of big scarves and sarongs, now I'm wondering if there's something more I can do with them.

    I hope your brother gets to realise his dreams!

  8. The scarf does make a great skirt! :)

    And are they airing the paralympics on TV? I would much rather watch the paralympics or the special olympics (which my brother has actually participated in - he has down syndrome) than the regular olympics sometimes. I think the paralympics and special olympics are generally more inspiring! :) But anyway, best of luck to your brother, hope to see him in the 2012 olympics! :)

  9. I really like the scarf/skirt! I love experimenting with wearing things differently - and your experiment turned out great!

    I unfortunately haven't seen much if any coverage of the paralympics although I would love to. I also think it's wonderful that your brother hopes to go to London - I wish him so much luck!
