If you see me in the next few months, there is a high likelihood that I will be wearing at least a few pieces (if not all) of this outfit. I am obsessed with everything, especially this scarf (under $50!!!). I’ve worn it every day since I got it in the mail. What’s great is that it has so many gorgeous colors so it looks great with various outfits.
Dark denim. White jeans. Camel sweaters. Navy, white, cream, and chambray tops. The options are seemingly endless!
I had originally planned to shoot this outfit without a coat. I thought it was going to be a warmer day, but it was so much colder than I anticipated. I threw on this camel coat (unfortunately sold out, but here’s one that looks pretty similar albeit a bit more expensive than the J. Crew one I have!).
A positive about wearing the coat is that I loooooove the way the scarf looks with the camel. So much so that this weekend I wore the scarf out to dinner over a camel sweater.
The negative? I really wrinkled the sleeves of the shirt. I kind of thought I might be able to tuck the sleeves in carefully, but I was sadly mistaken when I took the coat off to reveal very wrinkled sleeves that I had just steamed to perfection that morning. Please forgive me. I do, in fact, own an iron and a steamer.
(Whoops. Honestly, I almost didn’t even post these photos but I’m hoping you can look past the wrinkles! Here’s what the shirt looks like when the sleeves are not crinkled.)
The scarf is so large and there are a bunch of different ways you can style it. I kept it simple by folding it longways and draping over my shoulders.
Also have to note the shoes. Mules have grown on me, but I find that the flat versions end up looking a bit more like slippers than shoes most of the time. When I saw these low block heels, I knew I wanted to at least give them a try. Bottom line? OBSESSED. I ended up going back to order them in black because they were on sale for under $40. I have a feeling I’ll be alternating between the navy and black all summer long. (FYI, that particular sale ended but I imagine there will be a different sale coming up soon.)
