Summer scarf

Sometimes a scarf is just what you need to turn a couple of plain closet staples like a navy maxi skirt and a white tee into an outfit.

The summer scarf is an often neglected accessory, since even in a light cotton, it's mostly too hot to want anything at all around your neck during the summer months.

Still, I rather like this striped one I stole it from my Sister my Sister gave me. There will always be some cool summer evenings when it is just the perfect thing.

  7. Your sister is so nice to let you steal, er, to let you borrow, er, to GIVE YOU such a lovely scarf! It really does take your outfit to a whole new level, and it's all BAM against your bright red purse.

    PS) nice bracelet, bracelet buddy.

  9. You're right, I love what the scarf adds to that outfit, it's more sophisticated somehow. I love having a scarf in (or on) my bag so I don't freeze in those overly AC'ed buildings--it's such a lifesaver!

  17. What a nice sister to, er, give you this scarf! I hear ya. I have a billion summer scarves, all sitting lonely waiting for any indication of cool weather to be able to pull them out. You are right, they add the perfect element of whimsy to nearly any outfit. I love this simple, classic look Lydia!

  21. I completely agree. I never used to wear scarfs before I started blogging but now I cant seem to stay away from them. They really add a nice punch to any outfit (even if its a little too hot to necessitate wearing them)

  22. The drape of that scarf is just perfect. Great, easy look.

  23. i love it! it's been way too hot here for summer scarf, but i've been eyeing my scarves longingly..

  24. I hope your sister doesn't think she's getting that spectacular scarf back :P

    I like the puppy's ribbon, too :)

  25. Your dog is so cute! She looks so mellow in these photos - my dog is always running around and trying to give me kisses whenever he gets included in my outfit photos :)

    Love the scarf - it really is the perfect touch for this outfit. Also, it has made me aware that though I have about twelve striped shirts/dresses/skirts, I do not have a striped scarf, and now I need one.

  27. The paneling on the top of the skirt is unusual, I dig it - it's super flattering. Love how you just "threw" on that scarf..and of course, love Chloe in all of her laziness! Just lounging :) So cute!

  30. It's a beautiful scarf and it brings the entire outfit together - i know i have said it before but that skirt is amazing... and I think you should get that ASOS anchor belt, in fact I might get it too... oh and Chloe, she is the perfect accessory.

  34. Your puppy is just the cutest!

    I'm a huge fan of wearing a scarf to the movie theatre in the summer - it's always too chilly in there!

  37. I was just telling Dotty that once it's July I just can't wear scarves any more... even though I have a number of pretty, lightweight summer ones. Just too humid for me! Chloe is so cute in these photos!!
