Here is a great idea on getting extra use out of your scarf collection…. Tie a scarf into a vest! Yes, that is right!!!
I confess…..I have lots of scarves….my excuse or justification is that I share them with my daughter (cute little model featured).
We were shopping together in Southport, NC and bought the 2 scarves featured in this tutorial from one of our favorite shops, Meesha.
No, I did not make this up! The store clerk showed us how to tie the scarf. It is so easy and chic that I just had to share! Ashlyn will show you how!
This scarf is fairly large and light in texture. With the length, it really looks great with a legging or skinny jean shown here.
Hold your scarf end to end with the longest side.
Fold it in half as perfectly as you can so it will be even. It's like folding a towel.
Now, with both of the end corners in each hand, bring them together and tie into a double knot as close to the end as you can. Try to keep it all even.
Now, the 2 ends are tied together and there is one large circle.
Next, open up the sides with the knot at the top and you will see 2 arm holes have formed!
Put you arms through the 2 holes. This is what the back will look like. It looks great with a tank top or strapless top. Of course, Ashlyn can't wear it to school like this so she wears a fitted t-shirt under instead!
Here is a view from the side.
She is a tall 5'10” so you can see that this was a large scarf. I love the Bohemian vibe of this look!
So cool how the fringe shows on this scarf! You can tell this scarf isn't as large, but is still thinner in weight.
She wore this one last week with a grey t-shirt. So stinking cute!
I also have a very handsome 17 year old son that is rarely seen on my blog. One day if I can ever learn to Photoshop out all of his eye rolls, then he'll be featured more! He does not like photo taking moments….seems like most boys don't!
I think this would look great with fall pashminas and a fitted long sleeved t-shirt or knit turtle neck! Oh how I look forward to jeans, boots and cooler weather! It will be a while here in Upstate, SC.
Do you notice the awesome leather cuff? I purchased it while at the Haven Conference from Lucy's Lockets! She makes jewelry from antique architectural pieces. I bought it for us to share, but sadly Ashlyn isn't sharing! Guess I need to order my own! Check out Lucy's Etsy Shop!
Do you remember the Summer Home Tours and Kitchen Details Tour from July and August? Just click the links to see my tours and the others featured. I am so excited to announce that I was selected to appear in the Fall Tour! Now, if pumpkins would start showing up at the local produce stands I'll be all ready!!
