Summer Scarf

Monday, July 23, 2012 106 0

Dress: H&M. Scarves: J.Crew Factory white, Jacob coral. Belt: H&M. Shoes: Boutique 9. Watch: Michael Kors. Bracelet: Kate Spade. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Ask my co-workers to describe me and I guarantee a few people will say “always cold”. Β So it’s no surprise that even in the summer you’ll see me wearing a lightweight scarf or cardigan whenever I’m anywhere near air conditioning. Β Perfect for warm temperatures, but a nice change from a cardigan, I can use a scarf as a shawl when I get chilly. Β Are you into summer scarves?

    Love the outfit! Looks beautiful on you! I am always cold as well and always wear either a scarf or a sweater. You are not alone!

      Thanks Amy! Good to know I’m not alone, because everyone in my office thinks there is something wrong with me! πŸ™‚

    I LOVE this dress! The color is so vibrant. I’m the same way and must have a sweater with me at work. It’s like a meat locker in my office but 100 degrees outside πŸ™

      Thanks Maria! The colour is definitely what attracted me to this dress. The cobalt blue is very rich and pretty!

    Love the color of that dress! Is that a recent H&M purchase, if so I have to make a mad dash over there:)

      I believe I bought this dress in May, but I know they still have the cobalt blue group of pieces in store that this came with. I’m not sure if they still have this particular dress, but it might still be worth a check. Thanks so much Alison!

    I went to a wedding a few weeks ago, and a guest was wearing this same dress! It’s great to see it styled with a scarf! I like the different pops of colour!

    Happy Monday,

      Thanks so much Emily! Ha ha, thank goodness I wasn’t at that wedding! πŸ™‚ I guess that’s the downside of H&M. . .the risk is pretty high that someone will be wearing the same thing!

    i LOVE everything about that dress! The color, the pleats…it looks great on you! And I love summer scarves too but I’m usually far too hot to wear them outside…I do throw one into my bag in case of air conditioning though! πŸ™‚

    • Jenny
      July 23, 2012

      Thank you Jess! Me too, if I’m not wearing a scarf or cardigan, then it’s definitely with me in my bag!

    I don’t have any summer scarves – it gets way too humid down here for them. But I love the way it looks! πŸ˜‰

      Thanks Mary Ann! Yes, some days it’s impossible to wear here too, but I’ll just bring it along with me!

    This bright blue looks pretty on you and you’ve totally swayed me to the high/low. As you know already I’m always talking about being cold so your scarf would work just perfectly in SF where we need them almost year round. Love the way you draped it!

    You look so classy in this dress; very much like a classy lady, and I love your nude pumps. They are the perfect shade of nude. And I completely understand how you feel being cold all the time. I pretty much always have a jacket with me even when its 100 degrees outside because I’m always freezing inside.

    So pretty — love the vivid blue. And I’m always cold, too! Also, because I’m a librarian, we usually keep the temps colder in the library for the books. (There’s a reason behind the librarian cardigan image!) I always keep a shawl handy in my office. πŸ™‚

    100% agree with summer scarves! They can add some dimension and color/pattern to an outfit that a solid cardigan just won’t do.

    I am always freezing too so I do always have spare sweaters in my office but I do like to change things up and wear summer scarves too.
