Isn’t it windy today? So windy that when I stepped outside, my hair was instantly whipped up into a style I like to call ‘bird nest chic’. Not exactly the look I was going for!
I stormed back inside, threw open my wardrobe and rifled through, angrily cursing Mother Nature under my breath. Now, as a girl with an abnormally large head, hats do me no favours. I’ve also never been able to pull off a hooded top with that modelesque, sports lux aplomb… I look more like a wallet-stealer than wonderfully stylish. Head-based accessories are really not my forte.
But then I happened upon the vintage silk scarves I picked up at that vintage fair a few weeks ago. This muted floral number matched my creamy greens colour scheme perfectly. After a bit of rolling and knot experimentation (should it go at the front, a la Wino’s cleaner chic?) I had one pretty perfect hair-tidier. Hooray!
When I first mentioned the silk scarves I bought, a few of you asked for tips on how to wear them. This is definitely an easy look to pull off, and I bet it’d look even better with long, loose waves. The scarf is a big, square shape so I folded it into a triangle and then rolled it into a strip, making sure the point of the triangle was tucked within the roll. I then just arranged it over my hair and tied it in a double knot at the back! Lovely stuff.
Is the weather determining your outfit today? Or did you throw caution to the wind (literally) and wear a ra ra skirt sans tights? I’d love to know!
