love is a laserquest


I don't usually post obscure song lyrics as the title for my blog posts, but I'm just having one of those very obsessive episodes with Arctic Monkeys (and more specifically, Alex Turner) right now that I just couldn't resist. The song inspired a romantic mood yesterday so I found a way another way to summer-ize Nepali by TDM Design's lavender scarf.  A simple single layer throw around the neck and a belt makes it a vest-like layer that can add a cool poetic flair to an otherwise plain tank and shorts outfit. Did you seriously think scarves were only for Winter? That's where you're wrrroonngg (another Arctic Monkeys reference, sorry!).

Also, all scarves at Nepali by TDM Design are 50% off til end of summer! Can't miss out on that deal. Plus you'd help raise funds for a new computer lab in the Nepalese village in which these beautiful scarves are handcrafted :)
