I’ve been debating whether or not to post this outfit because the scarf sold out, and it was sort of the point of the post. Womp, womp.
Of course, there are tons of lightweight scarves out there right now and probably quite a few in your own closet, so I decided to soldier on. Hopefully this post will provide you with some outfit inspiration whether you shop your closet or shop similar styles at your favorite retailer.
The long-sleeve tee I’m wearing is part of the Nordstrom winter sale, and it’s only $10. It’s a great layering piece, and I also like to wear it alone with scarves, as seen here. It has that super long high-low hem, which you may or may not like. Banana Republic has a more traditional style here. I like a scoop neck for wearing with necklaces. It’s more flattering than a crewneck on most of us, and sometimes I get tired of wearing v-necks.
I actually wanted to style this scarf with a light pink tee, but my pink tee is short-sleeved, and it was cold the day we took these pictures.
Would you wear a scarf like this with a short-sleeved tee? Now that I’m looking at these pictures, I’m not sure. Even though it’s lightweight and has spring colors, and I think some short sleeve tops are cute with scarves, I usually try to wear a thinner one with short sleeves. This one has a lot of material and tends to look bulky even though it’s lightweight.
With skinny scarves making a comeback, I am thinking this one might look a little dated. I do love the material, though. I think the color combination is so pretty.
I wore bootcut jeans just for something different. I feel like I style skinnies all the time, plus I really like these Sam Edelman brown suede booties, and they look great with bootcut jeans.
I kept my accessories simple. These triple hoop earrings go with so much, and although they’re small, there’s enough to them to be visible. At $29, they’re a great basic to have in your jewelry box.
My handbag is old, but this color is easy to find. It’s funny, for a few years I almost never matched my bag to my shoes, and now I find myself matching more often than not. It’s completely optional to match your shoes to your bag these days — it’s all personal preference.
How do you handle this in-between weather? I think this outfit is a great transition outfit. If you live in a warmer climate, you can swap out the booties for open toe booties or even wedge sandals. I do prefer bootcut jeans with a bit of a heel; otherwise you can look stumpy.
