Procrastination makes me crafty
It’s the end of the month, which means I have a sh*t-ton of work to do—and I just wasn’t feeling very inspired (or in the mood) on Saturday afternoon. I sat down at my desk in an attempt to get the creative juices flowing, and instead found myself deep into an Hermes scarf Google-search rabbit hole. At the time, finding a few fresh ways to accessorize seemed like a higher priority than looming deadlines—and then one idea in particular grabbed my attention: Yes, I HAVE to use a Twilly scarf as a band for my Apple Watch.
Further Googling ensued, and I actually found a non-Hermes scarf band, as well as stand-alone band attachments that would do the trick for $40. Then I realized I had an old leather wrap-around band I didn’t mind destroying for the sake of a procrastination project and off I went.
I cut the leather straps off the band connector things, slid them into my watch and threaded the scarf through. A few tie attempts later, voila…
Although this scarf band isn’t very practical while working out, it only takes a minute to swap out—and I have about five other short, skinny scarves I can use to add a fresh spin to any outfit. The only downside is that I now have even less time to finish my to-do list (but at least I got multiple new watch bands out of it!).
