Summer Scarf 101
The end of summer is upon us -- have you seen the September issues hitting shelves already? -- but I always keep my promises. And nearly two months ago, I promised I'd show you different ways of wearing a scarf in the summertime. At this point, I look like a copycat (Mattie and Madison already showed you a plethora of fab ideas) but I stay true to my word. If I wanted to try dating again, my Craigslist ad would say that I like long walks on the beach and making promises I can keep. Then again, I wouldn't post a personals ad on Craigslist.
Two of the easiest options are to tie your scarf into a sarong or a top. You'll need a long, wide scarf for these. (Mine is from Ann Taylor and it's super versatile!)
Using it as a vest is a little more complicated. As aforementioned, the idea came from my good friend Bryn (who will be starting her own blog, soon, finally). Here's a step-by-step guide!
This is a super cute layering piece for a bathing suit or tank top, but I plan to use it this fall as well -- over long-sleeved tees and under jackets! As a bonus, here's my sis to show you how to wrap the same scarf around your cute little head.
