Let's Be Real

 

Dress: Old Navy
Belt: Forever 21
Scarf: H&M
Necklace: Etsy (shop)
Wedges (pic #1): Target (shop)
Sandals (pic #2): Old Navy (shop similar)

When I was in college (10 years ago!  ahem...) I tied scarves in my hair all the time.  My hair was down to my waist and the scarf would be a good little scarf and stay in place.  I haven't worn a scarf on my head since I cut my hair a few years back because 1) it wasn't really cool anymore...or maybe it never was except in my own head, 2) I didn't want it messing with the shape of my haircut, and 3) I didn't think it'd stay put.

I wanted more color on top with this outfit, but it was too hot to wear a scarf around my neck.  I originally wore it as seen in pic #2, and it kinda worked, but let's be real here, people.  You know how I feel about fussy outfits, and my short hair couldn't hold this scarf in place so I was touching my head all morning.  I finally got fed up, took it off, and sentenced that little scarf to being tied around my bag.  Hopefully it learns to behave and we can try again another day.

  2. I love the scarf! It looks so cute on you! You should keep up the trend, however, I can see that it is hard to have it stay in place.

  3. The scarf is cute! Makes a great pop of colour. Have you tried those headband-scarves? I have the same problem keeping real scarves on my head but the headband kind work alright.

  6. Your scarf looks so great with your black dress and neutral belt!  I haven't tried wearing a scarf as a headband in recent years, but your looks great like that even if it didn't stay.

  8. That belt is really cute!  And I love the color of that scarf, although I understand how it can be not worth it when you have to fuss with it all day.
