occasionally after i’ve had a piece of clothing (or accessory) in my closet for a while, it can start to lose its appeal. sometimes this results in me doing a little too much online shopping (whoopsies) but most times to make something old feel fresh again, i try styling it in a new-to-me way.
after the neck scarf trend took off last fall, i purchased two bandanas to create similar looks on myself. you can see here, here, and here that i definitely tried it out for a time, but lately it has lost its novelty (plus wearing a scarf around your neck, no matter how lightweight it is is just foolish in 90-degree weather!).
so one day while we were running out to do errands on a lazy sunday (aka no efforts to put on makeup or do my hair were made), i threw on a romper and tied the bandana around my head like a headband. i felt so 40’s chic, like rachel mcadams in the notebook. since then, i’ve come to work the style into my regular rotation. it’s such a fun and retro look and instantly adds character to any outfit i choose to pair with it.
also, i’m wearing these pants again. in fact i love them so much i’m heavily considering getting a third pair. and the great thing is that the more you wear them, the better they feel. expect to see them 135346734 more times.
