You can own a few basics and add a few scarves or belts and shoes and you have more than a dozen outfits.
I do love pearls...they are luxe and I own more than a few strands.
Wear then in multitudes if you have them..
The best bang for your buck is a scarf...
vintage, new, designer brand or the ultimate....
For my money it is THE scarf to buy.
Wear it often, change up the tie.
choose a great colour palette
a pattern that speaks to you
one that ignites passion
look at the features and fold accordingly
point to point
repeat the fold
tie a knot
wrap around your neck
knot in front
ends go through each side
longer double knot in front
on the side
looks so casual and uncontrived...
if it looks too fussy
Play with your scarves and you will get comfortable
I stand in front of the mirror and look to see that the tie matches the theme of the outfit and that it feels right.
Wear your scarves often
they do nothing languishing in a drawer or an orange box!
Tie one on a tote
drape one under the collar of a jacket
wear one with a swimsuit
( take it off before diving in!)
Wear two at a time
just wear them
if they are Hermes ~ they cost you a small fortune
(if you earn a conservative salary like me)
With the weather getting warmer
I think I 'll be wrapping my Hermes around the brim of my straw hat....
There was a retirement event this evening
Thank you to all who attended
I have so much to be grateful for...
I was more than humbled tonight...
I am sure there will be more in the days to follow.
