Daily MelWear: Summer Scarves

Happy late Memorial Day!  I did take pictures yesterday but they're not fantastic so I'm not sure I'll post them.  Maybe if a day comes up when I just need to post some pictures real quick.

I tried my hand at selling clothes to Plato's Closet on Sunday.  That didn't work out so well for me.  Apparently the clothes I was getting rid of were "too mature".

Wait, did they just call me old?!

Anyway, they took two items; a shirt and some of the ugliest shoes I've never worn.  I had my nude snakeskin pumps to sell because they're too big now, some Mossimo black/gray pumps that are adorable...and they took the ugly shoes! I have no idea what their criteria is at this point.

They gave me a whopping $4 and some change.  I used it to buy this scarf for $5.  And that was the only thing that I walked out of the store with.  Strange, because I usually spend three or four hours in that store and have to narrow my purchases down.  I think I might have just not been in the mood for shopping.  Or something.

Today's outfit was built around the scarf. I started out pairing these white pants with a white button-down shirt, but the back gaps a little and my white belt wasn't fitting well at that point on my waist.  I decided to wear this dusty blue shirt instead and then had to figure out how to wear the scarf.  I was going to just tie it near my collar bone, but then I belted it and really, really liked that effect.  So I kept it.  What do you think? My first time wearing a scarf! Yay!

Today's stuff:

White Pants: Charlotte Russe (pre-pregnancy)

Blue Shirt: Target? Wal-Mart? (pre-pregnancy)

White Belt: Wal-Mart

Purple Flower Scarf: Plato's Closet (tag said Bebe...but I cut it off)

Nude Kitten Heels: Target

Necklace and Earrings: Wal-Mart (gift from co-worker)

  1. I've never seen a scarf belted like that. I think you wore it beautifully. I'll have to try that with one of my longer scarves. :-)
