Silk Scarves (aka Flight Attendant Attire)

Embracing flight attendant attire | A cute look with a silk scarf

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!

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!

    The scarf was a gift from a friend who lived in West Virginia. It was given to me in the early 80s. I used to wear it. I’m glad you’re wearing it now!

      And you were going to give it away?? And throw away all of those memories?? Just kidding. 🙂 I’m glad it’s mine now.
