Silk Scarves (aka Flight Attendant Attire)
Let’s be honest: It’s hard (really hard) to wear a square silk scarf without sending out a bit of a flight attendant vibe. So the way I see it, you have two options: 1) Don’t wear silk scarves or 2) send a flight attendant vibe.
In reality, most days, I choose #1. But sometimes, I just want to do something different. So I pull out my silk scarves (which really don’t get enough love in the first place), and channel my inner flight attendant.
To make the look a little more relaxed, I wrapped the scarf around my neck without really rolling or folding it. I also moved the knot off-center to get more of a French vibe than an American Airlines vibe. Of course, as you can see, the knot pretty quickly made its way back to dead center, and eventually, I just gave in.
Flight attendant, here I come!
| Scarf: My mom’s closet, Express has bunches of cute styles | Shirt: Target, similar here for $17 and here for $25 | Skirt: Forever 21 via Plato’s Closet, similar here and here (on sale!) | Shoes: Nine West Outlet, similar here for $25 | Sunglasses: similar for $10 |
I especially love this particular scarf because it has little cutouts of West Virginia all over it. I’m not sure where it came from originally, but I saw it sitting on my mom’s pile of clothes to take to Goodwill, and I said, “Can I have that??” Because it was just too good to pass up.
Of course, my mom has never lived in West Virginia, and I haven’t either. But I still get a ridiculous amount of happiness from representing the state for no reason at all. Especially when people say, “Is that … West Virginia?” Why, yes it is. 🙂
Thanks for reading!
P.S. If you’re not sold on the silk scarves, you can always try tying your usual scarf in a creative way!
