A Zoo-Worthy Scarf

Top: Old Navy
Scarf: H&M
Jeans: Lucky via Nordstrom Rack
Yellow Flats: DSW

When: over the weekend
Where: band rehearsal at church & San Diego Night Zoo (sooooo fun!)

I saw a magazine picture of Hillary Duff wearing almost this exact outfit (with a cooler scarf) and was amazed and inspired.  I had all these pieces but would never have put them together.  I wouldn't have wanted to wear a tank top with jeans because I'd feel like I was ready to help someone with manual labor.  But this is a great example of how much one accessory like a scarf can change an outfit.  Without the scarf, this is just a $3 tank top and jeans, but roll the jeans and throw on a pretty scarf and voila!  You can look cute going to the zoo.

(Umm, and by the way, I really, really, really, really love going to the San Diego Zoo in the summer when it's open until 9pm.  Just thought you should know.)


  1. This is such a true statement -- there's really no outfit that can't be made a little more chic and a little more fabulous with the addition of a stylish accessory. And the zoo at night? My most favorite activity.

  2. Night zoo? That sounds like fun! :) Love the scarf!

  3. Amazing idea! I am going to go by that idea. How an accessory can change up a plain-jane outfit! Really cute!

  4. The look is really tied together well by the scarf (which is fabulous, may I add?) and your shoes, I'd argue. You look cute!

  5. It's great how an accessory can spice up an outfit! I don't know what Hillary Duff had as a scarf, but I think this one is pretty cool!!

  6. You love the zoo at night?  Can we please be good friends and go all the time?

  7. I love scarves that make an outfit! I did something like this with a multi-colored scarf. I took the scarves three prominent colors (red, blue, and purple) and picked solid color pieces from my closet in those colors (red flats, blue shirt, purple skinny jeans). I rolled up the jeans, threw on the scarf and the outfit looked a million times better! 

    I've never been to the zoo at night but it seems awesome!

  8. haha! Oh my gosh, I totally laughed at your manual labor comment. I completely understand that feeling. I just started thinking about wearing scarves, but always feel like I do them wrong. Your's looks so great, I'll have to try it myself :)

  9. scarfs are one of the best accessories! they can completely transform an outfit and add just a touch of elegance.

    You are wearing that scarf so well! I've been wanting to try a look like this but I haven't worked up the courage yet.

  11. Scarves add so much versatility to outfits!  I love the way you styled the one you're wearing.  The colors work so nicely together.

  12. the red colour it's amazing for you


  13. Very cute! Love the way you draped the scarf - I'm always looking for new ideas in that realm...

  14. I love the San Diego Zoo! Almost as much as I love that scarf!  

  15. Adore that scarf and your whole look here. Thank you so much! Your outfit sans scarf is my mom wardrobe ... nice to know I can take it up a notch so easily and still be comfortable :)
