This was taken a few weeks ago but I love this so much I decided to put it up here. I got the Hermes scarf when a neighbor who had recently lost his mother offered her wardrobe to me and my sister. This scarf was so gorgeous I had to have it. I got the idea to tie it to my bag when I read in “Vogue” that a half-century ago, socialite and fashion icon Babe Paley once casually tied a scarf to her bag and started a trend overnight. I love the combination of the Hermes scarf with my favorite Brahmin bag and with my striped tank top, blazer, skinny jeans, hat, and leopard brogues. To me white and navy stripes are the perfect classic nautical trend, and they’re perfect with this super-chic camel H&M blazer, which instantly makes any outfit feel so now and so timeless a la Ralph Lauren. I love that my KMart hat and leopard brogues from Forever 21 add a fun, modern twist that you wouldn’t expect. Someone once said that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I’d love to think that could be said about my look-any piece of this outfit would look great on its own, but when you put them all together you create something truly amazing.
