pop of paisley

Up until relatively recently, I never wore scarves as accessories–they were strictly reserved for outerwear in my mind. Just another weird fashion fear, I guess?

I’ve come to appreciate scarves as of late, however. As a girl who doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry, I’ve discovered their usefulness as a way to complete an outfit or add a pop of color.

I recently bought this pop of paisley scarf from Forever 21:

I really love all the colors up against the ivory background. So pretty! I wore it for the first time today with a pretty neutral outfit.


(contrary to appearances, I’m not pregnant–my pants are just a little big in the waist!)

Ivory and dark brown was the theme for the rest of the ensemble. My ubiquitous tortoise watch made yet another appearance 🙂



I tried to pick up one of the colors in the scarf with my shoes–I think it ended up being a pretty close match! I always struggle with what color shoes to wear with these pants for some reason. Brights always work in my book!

How often do you wear scarves as accessories?

  1. that scarf is gorgeous! i may have to check it out myself. i love how you kept the rest of the outfit neutral but added in one of the colors in your shoes, that’s definitely what i would have done as well. 🙂 so pretty!


  2. Yep, that really is a beautiful scarf, Caroline! I love it! I’m a huge fan of scarves as a way to bring a little extra interest to an outfit, and I wear them year-round 🙂
