Scout's Honor (See Jane Wear)

j crew shorts, anthropologie tank (old), H&M belt, no label scarf, dolce vita wedges, EJ sunglasses

I've always been a huge fan of scarves.  Maybe it's due to the fact that I get chilled easily or perhaps it's because I like to cover up my neck (I love turtlenecks and I'm not sorry), but I've never been one to walk away from a scarf.  I picked up this printed gem from a street vendor in NYC three years back.  It was around $5 and I have been wearing it off and on since; it's one of those cheap, impulse buys that you're glad you made every time you put it on.  I felt a bit like a boyscout in this outfit--the faded blue shorts with a loosely tied scarf.  I wasn't a boyscout (obviously), but I do know how to tie a square knot, as pictured here:  right over left and under, then left over right and under, in case you're curious.

Scarves are my indulgence too, I have a whole set for summer and then another set for winter. There are too many but I love them all so much - just need to find another storage solution!

Square knots are so cute ;)

Your sunnies are so fierce! And I'm pretty addicted to scarves, too. The scarf is a fantastic touch to such a pretty, summer outfit.

Love a scarf on any outfit. This outfit reminds me alot of my current summer wardrobe. Just bought wedge sandals , does that zipper drive you crazy. I feel like a cat walking around, my husband said I better not ever commit a crime in these cops will spot me a mile away.
