Hi everyone!!

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend and are looking forward to another week of work, school, the grind, etc. EXCEPT ME! I have another week of vacay left, until I have to pound the books again. Until then, I work on empowering projects such as writing fashion blog posts.

Reading over my posts has been enlightening. I learn that:
a) I am not as skinny as I thought I was
b) I rely on dresses when I don’t want to have to think too much about what to wear
c) I love accessories!

I truly do. I think scarves and belts make every drab outfit into something cool. Granted, I shan’t rely on these cheap tricks all the time, but they’re always great to fall back on. For example, I recently bought this scarf (go to Look Book and it's on the 1st model) from Jacob

It’s light, making it perfect for summer. I LOVE silky blouses where you can tie the front into a bow. For example, this top on the left:

I am trying to duplicate that effect with this scarf on all my light shirts now!

I like how the scarf is much longer than it is wide, making it easier to use as a belt…

…or just a summer scarf! Another great all-season scarf is the Alexander McQueen scarf, but with its steep price tag, it is difficult to justify.

Have a great week, y’all!
