SAHMonday: Neck Scarf Two Ways

Welcome to another edition of SAHMonday – weekly outfit inspiration just for the stay at home and work from home moms of the world (like me!) who aren’t heading out of the house on Monday morning.  You can check out the other outfits in this series here.

These outfits are perfect for when you want to feel comfortable, yet put together, so that you can face the day and any errands you may need to run.  Plus, most of these outfit formulas can be pulled straight from your closet.  If you don’t have my exact pieces, that’s ok.  Just use one of the substitutions that I recommend.

The Controversy of the Neck Scarf

Spring trends have been a hot topic in my private GYPO Style Challenge Facebook group and on social media in general. One trend that keeps popping up and causing a ruckus is the neck scarf (aka square scarf).

It’s true, neck scarves are a big trend for spring 2017 but many of you have been through this trend a time or two (90’s for me) and aren’t so sure you want to go there again.

But the biggest question/concern I get is “how do I wear it without feeling like a flight attendant?”

I understand, I really do.

It’s kind of a tricky thing to pull off.  The key is making sure the rest of your outfit does NOT look like a flight attendant. Here’s how I’m wearing mine.

Blush Top + Neck Scarf + Skinny Jeans + Lace Up Flats



If that outfit doesn’t have you convinced to give the neck scarf a try, then here’s another option.  These little scarves are SUPER CUTE tied to the handle of a purse or tote bag.  It still adds interest and pattern to the outfit but it takes it off your neck.  I’ve even seen them tied around wrists and worn as hair accessories.



Cute, right?  And totally NOT flight attendant.  🙂
