Scarf Bows

February 1, 2012

(Top- J. Crew, Vest- Lylif, Scarf as Bow- Cotton Island (old), Sunnies- Karen Walker, Pants- Gap, Shoes- Forever 21, Bag- TJ MAXX, Jewelry- David Yurman, Michael Kors, Ettika, Marc Jacobs)

If you didn't know, I love bow-tie blouses. They are usually my go-to top and they're universally flattering-- really. So what's a girl to do when she can't wave a magic wand to turn her favorite J. Crew button down blouse into a bow-tie? Why, use a scarf of course! 
It is so easy. 
All you have to do is find a long thin scarf in that monster of a closet, and put it on under your collar. Tie a bow and you're good to go!

On a different note.....
