my outfit: orange scarf!

So the hair battle continues... as you can see. One day side swept. The next "blunt bangs"... like these photos. I actually like the ability to switch from one to another, seems like a happy medium for now.

The temps are on the rise and believe it or not I left the house in this outfit the other day and NO big bulky coat over top. Hooray! It is just amazing to see the sunshine and feel it on my skin... I feel my spirits brighten instantly. Not to mention that wardrobe options are expanding with the warmer temps as well. Is that a forearm I see?

A few of you asked how I wrapped this scarf all around... like in this outfit and not have it come undone. My trick is simpley wrap it around until it's the length I like around my neck (you know, not choking me or anything) and then tie the very ends together and sweep the tie to the back so you can't see it. Voila! This scarf doesn't have any fringe, so that helps. I think it would be difficult to pull off the knot with the fringe.

Doesn't this bracelet just rock? I snagged it on GILT recently. I love the bold stones with the funky gold chains wrapping around it. Accessories are everything when going with basics like a white t-shirt and a grey sweater. They turns "clothes" into an "outfit".

Isn't it so much easier to dress in warmer temps?

Hey edgy lady! I love this outfit! It definitely wins the effortless chic of the day.
And yes, it IS so much easier to dress in warmer temps! Layers are fun, but only for a very short time. I'm back to sandals and just one shirt at a time. :)
