The scarf shirt

So what happens during that awkward moment when I realize I forgot to pack a shirt for my beach trip?  I decide to make use of what I do have, which means turning my scarf into a shirt.  Admittedly, one of the key ingredients here is luck since the look would not have worked nearly as well without my matching bandeau top.


One of the best parts about this look is that it's easy to create.  Simply wrap the scarf around your body in a criss-cross shape and tuck the ends in neatly to the back of the bandeau. While at the beach, I decided to wear the scarf in a sleeveless fashion by having the scarf sit around my neck and on my shoulders.  But when it was time for a restaurant setting, I pulled the excess width of the scarf over my shoulders to give it a kind of sleeve effect.  Gotta keep it classy!








What I'm wearing:
-Floral scarf from Ardene
-Navy bandeau from ASOS
-Lace shorts from Forever 21
