Pure Light

This past weekend, the Jewish people celebrated Yom Kippur.  There is so much to say about this holiday (it’s my favourite – wrote about that here) but in terms of hair covering, many people choose to wear all white.  I found that wearing all white with a white tichel is a challenge – it’s easy to enter bathrobe and towel zone!  Here is what I came up with!

The wrap consisted of two scarves and one lace sash (thank you hubby!)  They were layered and twisted over my head (for the second day of the holiday I did two twists – I liked that more!) and tied in the back:

I found beautiful light and sparkly earrings to match, as well as a big gold flower to hold the wrap together.  (This was the only colour in the whole ensemble.)

The white clothes were a beautiful cotton dress, with a white shell and ruffled white skirt underneath.

And of course, white shoes!

For those of you that celebrated, I hope that you had a cleansing, cathartic, and connected day.  Much love to ALL of my readers.  You are such an inspiration!

A Silk Wonder!

This scarf, given to me by my mother-in-law, is one of my summer favourites.  It’s made of crushed silk, so it’s light and low maintenance.  The colour changes on the scarf make it look like I’m wearing more than one when really, it feels so light – like I’m barely wearing anything!  For this wrap, I am not wearing the volumizer… just my hair tied up high and the velvet headband with the scarf (it’s hot outside!)
