I was shopping this week and saw the most amazing scarf. A beautiful hue of orange with yellow accents. I snapped it up and built today's outfit around it. Yes, normally a scarf is the last thing you throw on an existing outfit but, today, this scarf takes center-stage. It is the reason for the outfit and the centerpiece.
What do you think? Do you wear scarves for fashion?
Oh my I love this outfit!1 so sunshiney and happy!!ReplyDelete
I've built outfits around scarves before--it's a great stepping stone for color combos!
Yes, Ally looks great. And scarves are such a great accessory, different weights for different temperatures. There are so many great vintage finds and they are a whole textbook of colour mixing as well. You can do the gamut of classic, glamour, boho, chic.....Delete
I LOVE that scarf ... I love anything orange!!!!ReplyDelete
You look super cute in that outfit. I do have scarves but rarely wear them although in the past I used to wear them a lot.
Wow, Ally! You are a mega-dose of Vitamin C in this outfit - love all the energetic citrus hues! I love a great scarf - it's a wonderful way to make a simple outfit look intentional. :) It's too hot here for scarves right now, but I'm looking forward to wearing mine when it cools down.ReplyDelete
Lovely scarf. The bright colors are so juicy and you did a great job with the tie job.ReplyDelete
a pretty scarf and a pretty outfit, love the shoes too! the colour of the scarf makes your face glow - scarves are my winter loves xReplyDelete
I love the beautiful scarf. These colours suit you so well also.ReplyDelete
I love it!! I only have a couple of scarves and rarely think to wear them, but they really do pull an outfit together. Yours is such a fun color too!ReplyDelete
Hi Ally. That's such a beautiful scarf. Gorgeous color too. And such a pretty outfit. I am a sucker for scarfs. As soon as the weather cools down a bit I'll be wearing them.ReplyDelete
Have lovely day
I wear scarves a lot! My favorites are silk rectangles, worn long in front, but I also wear large squares, folded into a right triangle and worn loosely tied about the neck. Somehow the colors are richer and more interesting on silk, although I do have some good polyester ones too. I use mine to jazz up a boring outfit, and to improve my figure visually (round faces and round torsos look a little slimmer with long scarves or long bold necklaces). Have you considered mascara? (Or false eyelashes?) Your makeup would sing with that finishing touch. I am fair-skinned like you, and my eyes get lost without my mascara, eyeliner and brow pencil to add definition.ReplyDelete
Good suggestions for makeup. I've tried false eyelashes and they enhance my face greatly, but are very difficult to apply. Mascara doesn't do much for me. I need to learn how to apply eyeliner which is hard in my case because my upper lids hang over my eyeline and obscure it. I need skilled advice on these subjects. Thank you for your suggestions which are all on target.Delete
beautiful scarf!!!! so chic and funny!!! love the color .,.. wanna follow each other?? kissesReplyDelete
That scarf is beautiful! YAY, welcome to the world of scarves. I love that they can dress up and change any outfit. Actually that one looks long enough that you might be able to wear it as a top.....ReplyDelete
I am a big scarf freak; I have probably in excess of a hundred of them. They're wonderfully thriftable little luxuries, often in the most luscious of materials. Nice little style statements on many a very ordinary outfit for me.ReplyDelete
Yours is lovely; the colour coordination you've got going with it is unusual, pretty and very striking!
I love to see you in bright colors! I loooove scarves but it's too bloody hot right now for them.ReplyDelete
Very cool, Ally! Isn't it awesome when you see an accessory (or garment) in a new light? For an extra big vintage spin, have fun and try wearing one vintage headscarf style. It's so fun and perfect for when you'r not sure what to do with your hair that day. :)ReplyDelete
Great idea! Thanks, Jessica.Delete
Lightweight colorful scarves are great for warmer weather, aren't they? The colors in yours are so pretty. You pull off yellow quite well!ReplyDelete
I love this scarf! Of course I would though, I adore orange. But seriously it's a fun color and it looks great on you. I like wearing scarves for fashion - more in the fall/winter than in the summer though!ReplyDelete
Good day, sunshine! I love how those sandals echo the scarf's print, and your earrings are the perfect earrings. Beautifully done makeup! The cool violets are nice, but if you get a chance, see what you think of peaches and corals, which are exceptional on you.ReplyDelete
Of course, I wear scarves, they are probably the most versatile accessory in my wardrobe. I love the colour of your scarf here, and the yellow skirt is gorgeous! Such joyful colours! You look great! x/MadisonReplyDelete
I have a few, but I have a hard time styling them. That one is really cute!ReplyDelete
Wow, these colors are amazing on you! You are wearing that pretty scarf very well indeed. You tied everything together beautifully and I love the earrings and make up too.ReplyDelete
I love scarves, I think accessories always make the difference in any outfit ! I like this scarf, yellow is growing so much on me, this year I have the feeling we'll be wearing yellow clothes and accessories more than ever and I am happy about that ! Moreover, it looks so good on you !ReplyDelete

Very cute! I love scarves, but they are just too hot for me to deal with now.ReplyDelete
What an awesome scarf!! I adore orange on you, Ally. Orange has always been one of my favorite colors, so vastly underrated. Even when I was in an all black phase, I still had an orange shirt I wore once a week.ReplyDelete
I really like the scarf styled in the last two photos. I don't know how you did it--but it is a striking scarf.ReplyDelete
following you now, nice to meet youReplyDelete
Thank you so much for commenting after my looong hiatus. It's nice to know you have that support to come back to.ReplyDelete
This scarf is amazing. My pale self could not wear these colors, but you are glowing =]
Scarves are such fun accessories and can change the entire look and style of an outfit. I'm looking forward to seeing what else you think up. Love the scarf Ally.ReplyDelete

Beautiful scarf ! that's such a great picture of you, i like how you wrapped it around your neck, its looks like a necklace.ReplyDelete
It was not until very recent that i discovered there were spring scarves, i always thought these were meant to cooler climates.
I've worn a scarf every single day on the pediatric bone marrow transplant unit. COLD!ReplyDelete
This one's fabo, just like you.
Ooh! A new fashion trend for Ally. Lookin' good!ReplyDelete
