peek-a-boo skulls

It's not that I'm pro-skull or anti-skull in fashion...
I suppose I'm skull neutral...while finding them kind of interesting...

Take this scarf for instance:
I think it's pretty, almost dainty, with it's blue and purple flowers.

You'd never expect that hiding in those folds is a giant skull,
with even more little skulls scattered throughout.

 But, fold it and wrap a stretchy, pearl, dollar store bracelet around it and you'd never know.

I actually wore my skull scarf to church today!
skirt: mexx, thrifted
t-shirt: joe fresh
cardigan: Active
scarf: Fraas, gift

Friday afternoon I was in one of my favourite stores chatting with the owner about a promotion going on where I work and I noticed this scarf on the bottom shelf of a display. "Are those skulls?" I asked.  Now, this store is what most people would consider an 'old lady store'.  Most of her clients are more mature, but I always find lovely, classic pieces there!  I digress. 
Skull motifs are not something I'd expect to find in this shop. 
What do you think...would you wear skulls?

  1. Your look is beautiful...the scarf is fun..but over 50 is YOUNG LADY..not old!!!!!

    1. you are very right Pam! I don't consider 50 old at all! I was trying more to convey that 50s would be where her clientele starts. Glad you commented!

  2. I love this look too, and agree with Pam - "old" is always going to be 20 years older than me : > Thanks so much for participating in Visible Monday!

  3. Yes, i agree with both Pam and Patti! I so enjoy your scarf...what a surprising juxtaposition of subject, coloration and design! Thanks for sharing!

  4. You look fabulous and so very pretty! You put me in mind for summer--and if I get a white skirt, YOU will be the reason!

    1. thanks! It was so nice to finally have some summery weather.

  5. I love skulls! I never wear them, I wear very simple clothes, but I like to see them on another people. I have a friend who's very much into the pirate's theme, she wears skulls everywhere! Agree with over fifty comments and on you buying things there. sometimes classic style is best.

    And I adore that fireplace behind you in the pic.

    1. your pirate friend sounds cool!
      The fireplace is in the house that my husband grew up in. A friend of his parents is a stone mason and he built it from the stones found on the site where the house is built.
