Since we just arrived back home the day before Valentines, I was not expecting any kind of Valentine's surprise as we are both terribly jet lagged and spent from the trip.  But when I awoke, I found a surprise from Thailand.  It's the quintessential fashionable gift from the land of silk, elephants and smiles: A Jim Thompson silk scarf.

Knowing how to wear a scarf takes some practice and displays a sense of refinement.  Having the gusto to pull it off shows good taste and a playful attitude. For a trip, it's the perfect accessory for packing light as it can be a hair accessory, a neck accessory, a waist accessory or....
a bedroom accessory - think blindfold. 
Helloooo, it's Valentine's day.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.... Happy Valentines lovers

While in Thailand I was a little elephant crazy and wanted elephant print, elephant embroidery, elephant carving everything. Seeing elephants walking along the rode was so strange and amazing. Getting up close at the Elephant park was scary and amazing. Receiving a kiss from a baby elephant was really cute and quite a thrill.

With animal shaped patterns everywhere now (it started with birds), not only is this scarf nostalgic but totally on-trend
