I have always loved the idea of scarves and think they look super adorable on other people. (Especially little kids. Every toddler should wear a scarf. Every day.) But I always thought that I looked ridiculous wearing them. Something about it just made me feel extra self-conscious… like everyone was staring and thinking, “Oh, she didn’t tie it right” or “that doesn’t go with the rest of her outfit.” Ridiculous, but I couldn’t help it!
Except now… it’s summertime and still chilly. And rainy. I’d personally like to just live in pajamas and stay in bed– something about rainy days that just does that to me. I also have no idea what to wear on a daily basis. Rain boots? Jeans? Sweaters? Definitely too cool for skirts this week. Definitely too bleak for summery dresses.
My solution? ALL THE SCARVES.
Flamingo Scarf (c/o) // T-Shirt // Jeans // Bag (c/o) // Monogram Necklace // iPhone Case
Apparently I have quite the collection without even intending on it and I made sure to put them to good use. I found that t-shirts were the easiest things to pair with the scarves because the scarves lay flat and the combination is just extra comfortable. (Plus, t-shirts come in different colors and can make a scarf really pop!)
Tertiary Color (Lilly Pulitzer Scarf + Artist Tee) //
To really bring out the colors of a printed scarf, opt for one of the tertiary colors. The primary colors of this Lilly scarf
are teal and pink. The tangerine shirt really makes the orange of the scarf stand out!
Mix Prints (Capri Scarf + Striped Shirt)
// Make an impact with a bold pairing of prints. Striped shirts are the neutral of prints (in my opinion!) and looks great with a bright patterned scarf.
