One must not overlook the possibilities of a scarf. I repeat – MUST NOT.
Adding color to an outfit should not be limited to lipsticks, or handbags only. A scarf does the job quite well too. I thought of wearing my in a little different way this time (mind you – there are thousands of other ways). Anyhow, for this post I am styling my scarf as blouse. Well, I did nothing but tied up two ends around my neck and the other two ends at my back. The blazer cleverly covered the messed up knots behind. That’s it. You are done. And yeah try to mix prints and textures if you like.. go wild! I kept it simple for today though!
Tip – During summers, skip the turtleneck entirely, and wear your scarf as a tube top as it is, or better, wear it over your bikini! Voila.. style has a new meaning!! And would it be wrong to say that this outfit will suit the lovely occasion of Valentines too!
Also, I just got my hair trimmed (ah.. nothing major just a regular trim). I am sticking to this plan for now.

At first, this dress was tricky to style. I couldn’t decide whether to style it with high heels or pair it with plain flats. Due to the oversize proportions of the dress, I finally ended up dressing it the boho way. This metal belt I grabbed the other day from a thrift store, worked like a charm!
One or two years ago, I would never have thought about styling this dress this way. It’s wonderful to realize how much my style has changed due to this blog. I love experimenting more. I never used to buy anything over-sized (due to the fear of looking huge or fat or wide.. you see)! But now the story has changed. Completely. I wear what I like, the way I like, without the fear of people looking at me or “Oh! damn this dress is not available in my size”. Such things are behind me now. 🙂
