Scarfed Up

Scarf worn as shirt: H&M, Skirts: American Apparel & UO, Necklace: F21, Bracelets: Ettika, Watch: Vintage Gucci, Sunnies: Ray Ban, Flip Flops: Havaianas, Clutch: Curly in the City


On Sunday after hours of lounging in the pool and countless glasses of "Summer Drink" (a delicious dangerous doozy), I realized that the one thing I forgot to pack was a top to wear to dinner...Oooopsie. Not sure how my tipsy self came up with the genius idea to use my scarf as a top but it worked like a gem! Thank goodness cause strolling to dinner in my bathing suit top would have been less than appealing, unless of course I was dining at Bob's Classy Ladies...um no.  

Three days of good friends, good food, and good drinks (maybe one too many) was just what the doctor ordered! How was your weekend?

xo,
Nicole

Genius lady! I think you save the day when you wore that scarf as a top. And hey, some of my best ideas have come to me while a little tipsy too.

It sounds like the perfect way to spend a weekend. I have a girls weekend coming up and it cannot come soon enough. Love the scarf too.
