Blush and Bronze: Styling Silk Scarves

One of my favorite style obsessions from this summer has to be wearing silk scarves as tops. I ordered 2 from Amazon immediately and have been loving them ever since. But be warned- do too much physical activity in these babies and they have a tendency to slide right down your torso, no matter how tight you think you tied the knot. I’m speaking from personal experience here.

While there are several different ways you can tie a silk scarf as a top, my personal favorite is the one pictured. This style definitely favors the IBTC, so if you need a little more coverage, this might not be the style for you- a halter-style tie may be more feasible. All you need to do to achieve the style I’m currently sporting is fold your square scarf into a triangle diagonally, then bring it around with the widest angle pointing straight down your back. Tie the 2 ends into a knot and adjust, then you’re done!

All About Embroidery

I’ve been super into embroidery lately. I went through a phase a few years ago where I was staunchly against it, no matter what form it was in. (This was during the phase where boho fashion was super in, so the embroidery that came along with that trend just wasn’t really my style.) I’ve been super digging the embroidery I’ve seen recently, though, and when I found this skirt at Uptown Cheapskate I knew I had to snag it!

I wasn’t really sure how to wear it for a while (it actually hung on its hanger with its tag still on up until this morning,) but I love this #OOTD for work or play! My office is pretty frosty, so I made sure to pair it with a denim jacket. (Not pictured, but it looks super cute to tie the jacket around your waist if you get hot, too!) Now that I got the ball rolling, I’m excited to pair this skirt with more options in the future.

Red Velvet

Today’s #OOTD is really from yesterday, but I’m going to share it anyways!

Yesterday, I was heading to my sorority’s sisterhood retreat so I wanted to make sure I was comfy for the 2 hour car ride.

I love this red velvet sweatshirt because it’s so soft and cozy. I got it from Uptown Cheapskate and I think it’s meant to be a kid’s sweatshirt because it’s a size XL. (If it is actually adult sized, then frankly, I’m offended.) The black belt and jeans combo is a staple in my wardrobe that you’ll probably see pretty often. I wore my favorite black sunglasses on the ride down, too.

Sweatshirt: Velvet Top – Daytrip
Jeans: Mid-Rise Rockstar 24/7 Jeans – Old Navy
Belt: Loop Belt – Target
Sunglasses: Cateye Sunglasses – Target
Shoes: Advantage Sneaker – Adidas
