Vintage Scarf

Scarf:  Hermes (very old, similar here, here and here); Shirt:  Brooks Brothers; Skirt:  J. Crew (in petite sizes here; similar here; Sunglasses:  Ray Ban; Earrings:  Tiffany; Shoes:  Sam Edelman

I love using scarves to add a pop of color and a feminine element to clean classic pieces, like this cotton button-down and tweed pencil skirt.  I love the slightly retro look, and it's a nice way to mix it up instead of always wearing a statement necklace (which, don't get me wrong, I also love).  Scarves are also great because they are so timeless--my mother received this scarf as a gift over twenty years ago, and here I am still wearing it today!  If you're not sure how to tie a scarf, there are tons of youtube tutorials that are super helpful (and can give you a bit more inspiration!).  These tutorials also show you how versatile a scarf can be--you will certainly be seeing this scarf and others tied in a variety of ways here on the blog! 

If you're looking to expand your accessory collection to include a scarf, take some time to peruse the variety of colors and patterns available in stores right now.  One think I love about them is that you can find scarves in almost any print for almost any style, but when you fold or tie it, you just see the colors.  If you find one in a fun (or funny) print, it can be your personal little inside joke for the day at work.  Anything to make the day a bit more joyful, right!? ;-) 

Let me know in the comments whether you've ever wanted to try wearing a scarf to work, or whether you think they're a bit more "ladies who lunch" than "boss babe".
