Today I decided to break out my new pair of oxford heels I recently found at Zellers, for only $20! Sure the quality is lacking, but they are cute and I have been lusting after a pair of oxfords for months! I was so excited to finally find a pair! It was simply meant to be, they were the last pair and just happened to be my size.
But when I tried to figure out what to wear them with, everything felt too dark and wintery. I wanted some light colours. Some florals to offset the hints of masculine the shoes give. But I don't have any cute tops that are light and floraly. But I do have a scarf. So I wore it as a scarf, as I had done before.
I love how well it happened to pair with my jacket!
But today wearing it as a scarf over my white t-shirt just didn't work. So I tied it every which way I could think of. Still nothing. Until I wrapped it around me, and tucked it in my skirt.
Finally I found exactly what I was looking for. The perfect soft, feminine, pop of colour to my outfit. I had initially just tied it but then decided to use safety pins for more security. This also allowed me to showcase it better in the back, by overlaying the corners:
I love, love, love, this look. I felt super cute and chic and cleaver for figuring out a new way to wear my lovely, lovely, scarf.
And here's a close up since the colours and pattern are what I love so much about this scarf. (And the raspberries!) I also made the necklace. ;) (I'm thinking of re-working it though...)
Scarf (shirt): Value Village
Skirt: Addition Elle
Necklace: by me
This outfit also just happens to coincide with Have A Cute Day's floral week.
