2015 Scarf Swap with The Perfect Catch!


 {Starting Top Left Going Clockwise : 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10}

Is everyone familiar with a Scarf Swap???  As I said last year, aside from the Pumpkin Spice Latte, it's the tell-tale way to know that fall is here!  Simply put, I'll pair you up with someone at random and you will buy a scarf for each other.  At minimum, you'll get a fun new scarf and happy mail day and if you are really lucky, you'll end up with a new friend too. 

Why scarves?  They are the perfect accessory for cool{ish} temps to transition your wardrobe for fall...plus scarves are easy to swap since one size fits all...even 8 months pregnant like yours truly!

You can read about my past swaps to get a better idea of what to expect here: 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014.


So here's how it works:

Step 1:  Leave a comment below with your name, email, blog link (if applicable) and any other social media handles you would like to share for your partner to get to know you with by Wednesday, 9/15 (one week from today). 
Step 2:  Partners will be posted on this blog on Friday, 9/18
Step 3:  Reach out to your partner via email and follow their blog and social media accounts to get to know each other and get an idea for what type of scarf they might like or opt to totally surprise each other!  You have a little over two weeks to shop for a scarf and send it their way.  If you don't hear from your partner by Tuesday, 9/22, please let me know via email so we can match you with someone else...I promise no one will be left behind!
Step 4:  Get the scarf in the mail to your partner by Tuesday, October 6
Step 5:  Come back here to The Perfect Catch Blog on Thursday, 10/15 and link-up to reveal your new scarf and see what everyone else received...this is my favorite part!  Also join us on Instagram using #2015fallscarfswap.  This part is optional, but oh so fun!



 Other notes:
  • You do NOT need to be a blogger to participate.  You can get to know your partner via email, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. 
  • Please write all of the dates down and make sure you can meet the deadlines before signing up.  You don't want to be that person who leaves your partner scarf-less!
  • Follow me on Instagram and Twitter as @ChelseaPurifoy and my Facebook Page where I will be posting reminders about all of the deadlines!  I'll make it super easy for you. 
  • Let me know if you have any questions!  You can also sign-up by emailing me if you don't want to leave your personal contact info in the comments section: perfectcatchblog {at} gmail {dot} com
  • To keep everything fair, please do not spend over $35...and don't feel like you have to spend that much either.  Checkout the links I have above for some of my scarf faves...many under $20!  Some people even choose to send a little fall goodie in with the scarf like a $20 scarf and a $10 Starbucks card.  Totally NOT necessary, but an option!
  • Only accepting people from the U.S. this year to keep shipping costs for everyone down.  You do not want to know what I went through last year! 

I hope you all want to participate!  This will be so much fun and a great way to kickoff the fall season.  Please share with all of your friends who may want to participate too!

Happy Swapping!
