Thursday's Butterfly Knot


I was looking for new ways to tie my scarf and I remembered a blog posting from Cute and the Cheap who directed me to Sal's Already Pretty site. Sal has some great how-to's for tying a few cool knots. Thanks for the tutorials! I love how this turned out! Here is the lovely butterfly knot and the rest of the details...

Merona top - Target
Grey scarf - gifted
Nine West skinny Belt - Macy's
Tweed trumpet skirt - Gap
Maripe black peeps - Rack Room

So I am also trying out Flickr. I know a lot of people here use flickr to upload their photos to there blog. I just grabbed my photos off files and uploaded that way. However, they started firewalling blog photos at work. I can read the blogs, but I can't see what lovely outfits you have on except a few people, like Kimberly. I moused over the few photos I can see and saw that they were all via Flickr. Soooo, I'm experimenting and hopefully I can see my photo when I get in the office.
The firewall at work is so weird. Sometimes it blocks all blog pages completely. V, helped me out and showed me how to view them on Google Reader though. Sometime I can comment, most times I can't. This is why you may see a comment from me late into the night. Almost all pics are blocked. Maybe this just means I should get back to work... Nahhhh!
Wow, look at all the stuff I learned through blogging... Thank you ladies for helping me out!

I really like Flickr, so hopefully you will too! I find it much easier to just paste the html in vs. uploading the pic from the PC. Love your outfit today - that skirt is too cute. I did a scarf similar to this a couple of weeks ago and called it a "half bow" - silly me, "butterfly knot" sounds so much fancier! Love it!

I LOVE THE SCARF! Seriously, I have got to figure out how you tied that... I am always looking for new ways to wear scarves!

Just and update... I'm at work and I can actually see my pic. Yay, uploading through the link worked :-) Apparently I can comment today too. Double yay!

I just found your blog and love it -- as someone who also has lost weight and is struggling to fit a changing body I can totally relate.

Oh, and super cute scarf!

I'll be adding you to my blog list ASAP :)

Thanks for posting the link to the scarf how-tos, so timely! You look great today, awesome skirt.

You sound like me at work, always fighting the firewalls in the name of blogging! =) I need to see if Flickr works at my work...

I loooooove that scarf on you! It lengthens you and really dresses up your outfit.

I have flickr but am so lazy and never upload to it...maybe I"ll start since they aren't blocked in Google Reader!
