This week I was given the opportunity to style a scarf from Mignonne Gavigan. I’ll admit, I hadn’t heard of the brand before, but a former teacher contacted me and was sweet enough to send me a neck scarf to feature on my blog. (Shout out to Mrs. Labouchere for being the coolest high school English teacher a girl could ask for.)
The scarf is bright pink, and I don’t have a lot of pink in my closet these days. (My fifth grade self would totally kick my butt.) So, it was a bit of a challenge for me. If you’re struggling with the same issue (be it a bright colored scarf, necklace, shoes, etc.) and you’re wondering how to wear it, I would suggest toning it down with more muted colors, unless you want to go for a color blocking look. Then, perhaps tie it in with one other accent piece (for me, my boots) and then a pop of color on your lips.
I tied this scarf as if it were a bandana, but it’s actually a triangle shape material with buttons to connect it in the back. To tie it, which took me a while, I rolled (not folded) it, tied a knot in the front, and snapped the end pieces together. Look closely in the photos and you can see.
The leather jacket and boots are both from Francesca’s, one of my favorite little boutiques. Francesca’s is like… a girly girl’s dream. Or a grandma’s dream. I don’t identify as a girly girl, so I don’t always come out of that store with five bags, but I can pretty much guarantee that I’ll find 1-3 items I’m in love with every time I enter.This tank is from the Who What Wear Target Collection, and it’s so comfortable. I can already tell it’s going to be a weekly wear for me. I honestly can’t wait to shop more of their tanks like this… And their hats!
Again, special thanks to Mrs. Labouchere for sending me this adorable scarf. I highly encourage my readers to check out Mignonne Gavigan. The Instagram account is INCREDIBLE, and I could totally see people like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wearing this brand.
