Beyond the Sea

Top: Target, $12 // Shorts: GAP, purchased with gift certificate // Shoes: Lucky Brand, courtesy of Lucky Magazine // Scarf: Swapped with Jessie // Necklace: JCPenney, $10

This week, I decided to use my Scarf Swap scarves as the starting point and inspiration for my outfits rather than a finishing touch. First up is this cute little number that Jessie sent me. The colors and lines have a nautical feel to me, so I decided to pair it with a casual weekend look featuring horizontal stripes, bright red shorts and gold accessories.


Using scarves as turbans or headwraps is definitely a favorite style of mine, especially for carefree, on-the-go looks. Jessie knows how to rock a turban (check out her tutorial video!), so I thought she'd approve. I was also inspired to knot my shirt by fellow scarf-swapper Kendi. It's so much easier than tucking a voluminous top!


Check back to see other ways I like to incorporate scarves into my wardrobe.
