put a scarf on it

Fashion,24 March 2017

For me the accessory of the season is definitely a scarf. There’s something so classic about it yet it feels modern and fresh. Perfect piece for the new and simple Konmari wardrobe offering variety to our most beloved clothes and can be styled in endless ways. Below I’ve listed my three favorite ways to wear a silk scarf.

Around my neck. This is the most classic way to wear a scarf and right now it feels completely right. When it comes to the size of the scarf it’s good to keep in mind how much volume you want. If you have a shorter neck a smaller band shaped scarf might look more flattering, but then again a larger scarf can soon be a good alternative to cover up in outdoors paired with your spring jacket. When it comes to color and pattern anything works. I usually opt for a patterned scarf since I think it makes it more flirty. This orange paisley patterned silk scarf I received as a gift by Balmuir is my new favorite. Surprising and bold choice I know.

Braided low bun. Perfect way to make an everyday effortless bun more fun. This is my favorite beach hair-do. Black bikini, sleek bun with a scarf, sunglasses and a straw hat. One can dream right?

Wrapped around a top handle bag. I’ve worn this bag so much although it kind of reminded me of a granny bag at first. Even though I kind of love the granny association I think it gets a more modern look with a scarf wrapped around the handle. Actually, I dress it in different scarfs all the time and youtube offers great tutorials of different wrappings. I sometimes leave the ends uneven and long for a more casual look and a simple bow at either end is cute too.

What do you reckon? Flight attendant on top of mind or will also you pimp yourself by putting a scarf on pretty much everything you own?!

In between a week of sick days with the kids I managed to escape the war zone also known as home for a couple of hours. My husband always says that play is children’s work, but I’m pretty sure my kids could make a living out of making a mess. They are extremely determined, motivated, innovative, and creative. Natural talents to say the least :D.

So, finally shoe heaven Sarenza launched here in Finland, meaning they now ship also to Finland. They have an assortment larger than life and shoes for women, men and children. I’m seriously tempted to purchase theseA little less preppy than the Gucci slipper and would look perfect paired with blue skinny jeans, white tee and a black blazer. 

Really like the spirit of these pictures snapped by Sanni Riihimäki at the event last Friday. Pictures with balloons never go wrong. Always playful and pretty. May this be the mood for the rest of the week. At least the weather is with me! LOVE
