Looks To Love: 4 New{ish} Ways to Wear A Scarf

I am obsessed with scarves.  I mean big time obsessed-my collection grows weekly.  They are such a fun, simple way to add punch and pattern to your wardrobe and that is why I love them.  I recently ran across an  article from Refinery 29 on 4 new ways to wear scarves and plan on trying some of them out. 


Here are their tips, paraphrased:
1.  Wrap a long scarf around your waist, obi style.  Secure with a belt for polish.

2. For an interesting way to add a casual layer, loop a scarf around your neck and hold in place with a belt.  I like this tip the best because it almost gives your scarf the look of a sleeveless cardigan.

3. To add a new twist to the whole head scarf look, try wearing it turban style.  Or take two skinny scarves, braid them together and wear like a headband.   
I have never sported a head scarf and not sure I would, but these are fun ideas nonetheless.

4.  For smaller scarves, tie them around your neck like a bandanna with the two ends in front. 

I think these are great ideas for extending the life of your scarf into the spring and even summer season-that's if you are lucky enough to live where it doesn't get to be 100+ degrees.  Here are a few gauzy and silky scarves that would be great for trying out these ideas:

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  My little Kara is turning two on Saturday, which depresses me more than it probably should.  Once kids turn two you can pretty much kiss babyhood goodbye.  In the blink of an eye they are potty trained, talking in full sentences and heading to preschool.  I'm tearing up right now just thinking about it.  Wish me luck getting through this weekend, I think I'm going to need it!
