For 4th of July weekend festivities we cooked and entertained for family and a few friends as family to the moon and back. Honestly I didn’t stop prepping for about a day and half straight and when it came time to sit at the table I needed to act quick, so scarf as dress to the rescue.
Scarf as top has been a favorite look for decades, and now most of the women in my life have that look in their sartorial toolkit.
Scarf as dress simply requires a much larger square of fabric, a thin little belt, a legitimate ‘scarf ring’, or a ring from your finger which is what I used, a desire to sometimes do things a bit differently, a good dose of confidence, and perhaps a beautiful pair of French or Italian underpants if things start to slide a little.
The scarf shown here is a piece I picked up while traveling with husband to Geneva, Switzerland. I was intrigued by the bandanna motif and the color, red usually not my first pick for accessories, yet I had to have it.
I’m really into having things for life now, and I can see wearing this piece much like celebrating the Stars and Stripes, forever and more, daughters in the wing.
Wishing everyone a safe and blessed summer 2021.
Every day dress, scarf as dress.
Where was this July 4 th celebration? Looks terrific!!
