Pulling Off A Colorful Scarf

    Scarves are one of my favorite fashion piece to wear for all seasons! (well except summer!) They come in so many different colors and forms and add pizzazz to an otherwise plain outfit.  Scarves are especially perfect for times when it is somewhat warm outside, but the winter wind still looms around just like what I am experience right now!!



I got this scarf last year from Shabby Apple. I had a little giftcard to the store so I decided to use it to get this  lovely piece! Shabby Apple in my opinion is a bit on the higher range in prices, but the quality of the items is really nice! The scarf I chose is from Shabby Apple's fall line and is sadly unavailable right now. This scarf is a bright yellow color and reminds me a lot of the leaves at fall time! On the scarf are designs in black and a contrasting purple. The designs remind me of fall as well since I think they kinda look like leaves! 



For me, when it comes to colorful things such as my scarf, I like to tone the rest of my other clothes down. This way, I don't look like an explosion of colors and so I can shift all the focus of my outfit onto that colorful piece. As you can see here, I kept the rest of my outfit quite simple by wearing a pair of skinny jeans and a long sleeved black top. For shoes, I had on a pair of boots. I finished off the look with a gold colored bracelet. (.. made by me in jewelry class! )


As I am writing my post today, I realize that it's Wed. which means in less than 72 hours, I will be in New York for spring break! I honestly cannot wait! Over break, I don't know whether or not I will be posting ... I was thinking about making some post ahead of time or maybe even letting my sister guest post on it for that week... hmm? What do you guys think? My sister has her own blog, but she is a bit shy to share it so I wonder if I can convince her otherwise! 

Shirt- Forever 21
Jeans- Kohls

Scarf- Shabby Apple
Bracelet- Made by me! Similar one here .                                d                                                                                                              

Who here is a fan of Scarves?  
What do you think I should do with my blog when I go on spring break? Should I not post, try posting via  Ipad, or let my sister post?? =)

  9. I'm usually not a person that gravitates to bright colors (I'm more of a monochrome girl myself), but scarves are definitely a fantastic way to amp up your outfit via color, patterns, anything, really! Cute casual look, and I love your slinky-esque bracelet too!

  10. Aww have fun in New York with your cousins! Would be so great!! Can't wait for you to post updates on your New York trip and hopefully you get some good tan (if you like being tanned! =P)

    I agree with you, that if you have a scarf you gotta tone down the rest of the outfit <3 that way, everything looks befittingly with each other.

    I do envy those relationship where the guy really just come and sweeps you off your feet and treats you like his queen for the rest of their life. Of course I do wish that would happen to me as well so here's hoping. If not, then it's back to the reality :<

    1. aww thank you so much for this comment! I always enjoy reading your comments!
      I do like being semi tanned, and I did get a mini tan in NY. I get so dark in the summer though, but I will wear sunscreen this summer!
      I know, if some perfect guy comes alone and sweeps me off my feet, It would be amazing!!

  20. I love scarves! Next to purses, they are one of my favorite accessories. Like you said, they can be a great addition to an outfit and dress up an otherwise plain outfit. I've seen so many adorable spring scarves and I'm working on stocking up and adding to my scarf collection at the moment. :) I love the scarf you have on in the pictures, it's very pretty and sophisticated.
