2 Ways to Wear a Scarf #ootd

Yesterday, after I got home from a weekend MOPS Leadership retreat, my family and I went to Taste of Ethiopia where I wore the following outfit…

Summer Scarf Outfit Idea

The scarf is one that I have lusted for since I saw it in Stella & Dot’s Fall 2014 preview a few weeks ago.  I’m glad that I don’t have to wait until fall to wear it because the colors are perfect year round.  It’s got that very trendy, Anthropologie-ish boho look with it’s mixed prints yet it’s very chic looking.  I’m in love and plan to wear it at least weekly (especially in fall and winter) because it’s so versatile.   I’ll show you more ways to wear it below.

{ SHOP THE LOOK: scarf stella & dot // lipstick // tank – H&M (old) similar, similar // shorts – Sears (old) similar // wallet stella & dot // fitbit flex (looks like a bracelet) // flip flops  Target }

It wasn’t until I got home from the festival that I realized I could have also worn my scarf as a vest (I often wear my scarves like this as a swimsuit cover-up).  I love this because it looks bohemian and has the same feel as the current kimono trend.

  1. I ADORE this scarf and I frequently wear scares as vests too!! The mix of graphic black and white with the pattern of the scarf is a TOTAL win. And I couldn’t help but notice your FAB lipstick in the first photo….color and maker please

  2. Thank you so much! The scarf can be found at (it’s my fave SD scarf evah!) and the lippie (I linked above) is MAC ‘flat out fabulous’.

  3. I love that your lipstick matches your scarf. You look fabulous!! Also, I never would have thought of turning a scarf into a vest. Great tip, thanks.
