on using scarves as tops...

I've been looping Lou Reed on my computer and in my car for about a week now... I just can't get enough of him! Isn't his music fantastic? I could listen all day. 
I've really been wearing long scarves as tops A LOT lately... First off, it's hotter than ever here in northern Illinois. Second... you don't have to worry about wearing any kind of annoying understructure. Of course, this may pose a problem for some, but if you're the right size for the scarf you chose... I think you'll understand what I am talking about! Just make sure not to tie it too lose or too tight... you need to protect yourself from unexpected mishaps leading to embarrassment! XO
Outfit details: booties- Jeffrey Campbell via Free People
skirt- I made for the Spring 2012 Paulie Antiques fashion show!
top- my mother's vintage scarf tied in a bow
hat- vintage, 1980's, Goodwill
Sunglasses- borrowed
You can also see this trend in the newest photoshoot I styled from Paulie Antiques where the Wentworth sisters are both wearing scarves for tops!

I love that what you've done with the scarf. I used to do this a lot and play around with larger scarves so not so much midriff is showing hehe :) You look stunning
