Have I told you how often we have guests stay at our house?
It kind of blows me away sometimes with the amount of people coming in and out of town needing a place to stay and we LOVE to have them here. We are supposedly in the stage of being empty nesters but our nest is more full now than it has ever been! Truly I run a bed and breakfast here! We have family, extended family, friends and friends of friends plus my husbands business associates from foreign countries stay here….you name it we have them here. Recently we had a friend of ours and business associate of my hubby’s…Lilly here all last week. Lilly is from Indoneasia but is actually Chinese. Lilly speaks Mandarin, Cantonese, Bahasa and English! She is so kind and has such a sweet personality. Lilly brought me this beautiful scarf from Indonesia and I love it!
The colors in the scarf are periwinkle blue and a dark olive green. It has a pattern of Palm trees on it. It is gorgeous! I chose to wear this yummy scarf with a denim jacket, a long white blouse and black skinny leggin pants that are so comfortable. This outfit is perfect to go anywhere..shopping, lunching, erranding :), movies etc.. I feel pulled together with the scarf tied this way…in fact my friend Lilly wanted to know how to tie her scarf just like mine..how cute is that!
Oddly enough while we were out and about with Lilly, I found a maxi skirt at my friend Brittany’s new shop called Nest Boutique that is the exact olive green color!
I snatched it up and it looks so cute with this scarf! I will have to do a post wearing the skirt next time.
I decided to add a fun pop of color and decided to wear my bright orange suede flats!
One of the places we took Lilly to was Temple square in downtown Salt Lake City
The gardens are in full bloom and it was so spectacular …it took my breath away!
Here is Lilly ready for her picture to be taken with the temple in the background.
Some of the tulips were just gigantic! You can’t tell in the photo but I think some of the tulip petals were as tall as my hand!!
Tulips as far as the eye can see!
We had a wonderful time showing Lilly around Salt Lake taking her shopping, lunching and of course working!
Oooh, I LOVE your scarf!!! I sure do wish I could find one like it in my neck of the woods to give as a gift to my niece whose favorite color is olive green!! Your pictures are gorgeous!!

I love the classic denim jackets too, such as yours. You look great in it and I love the scarf!
My daughter just gave me for Mom's Day a lovely scarf similar as yours.
Happy Mother's Day to you.
Hi Fabby… One can never have too many scarves don't you agree? How fun that your daughter gave you one for Mother's Day! Hope you have a great Mother's Day. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
