All remixed except scarf
Pumps: Steve Madden
Y'all, I love this outfit. LOVE IT. I was looking for a jacket in our coat closet and found this scarf mixed in with my winter scarves. I don't know how it got mixed in there, but it's like I have a new scarf all of a sudden. And - bonus! - it's got some hot pink in it (even if it photographs a little more on the coral side) so I can work it for BBCA. (Check Melissa's site out for more BBCA looks.) I knew I wanted to wear it with all black, so I did.
I pulled out one of my favorite fall shirts - this short sleeved turtleneck from Express which is super, super old. I searched for a replacement a couple years ago, but they only had some with cut outs in the chest which just confused me, because why would I want to cover my neck and bare my chest? So this top is one of a kind; it's irreplaceable. Or something.
Add my trusty black skirt and this fabulous scarf, and I'm good. Well, that and shoes. You know what I love about black? That it lets me play so much with shoes and accessories. Grey pumps and turquoise earrings work perfectly well together if they're pops of color against all black. I mean, all black and a wildly printed scarf.
I think I've worn square scarves styled this way three times in the past eight days or so. I like wearing them this way to the very conservative office where I volunteer because they're just funky enough. The woman I volunteer with actually complimented my accessories today, which was nice. I don't get a ton of that in real life besides B. saying I look beautiful. But he's my husband and that's his job; he needs to say that; my coworker totally doesn't have to and that makes it totally different.
Oh, and y'all should check out my guest post over on 260 Days, No Repeats for ideas on what to do with special occasion pieces.
