I’m a little late on the uptake of the neck scarf trend, but to be honest, I wasn’t sure I liked it. Now I can’t stop wearing it (funny how that happens…). The neck scarf adds that little something extra to any outfit and it takes about 5 seconds to do (assuming you get it right in the first few tries). I will be doing a video on how to tie this bad boy, but in the meantime, here are a few tips:

1. Don’t centre your knot. It looks much better to the side.

2. Crewnecks and v-necks are the most preferable necklines.

3. Don’t be too perfect. You want it to look like you just threw it on (even if it took much longer…)

I am home from Palm Springs and back to reality (ugh). We had such a great vacation (our first one ever!) and so it’s always a little bit hard to transition back, especially after spending your days baking in the sun and napping in between. At least it’s beautiful here in Vancouver! Wishing you all a wonderful weekend 🙂
