A New Way to Wear a Scarf

A New Way to Wear a Scarf | www.eccentricowl.comA New Way to Wear a Scarf | I just got five beautiful new silk scarves from a recent garage-sale-ing trip, and I have been wracking my brain for new ways to wear them, so that I can showcase the gorgeous prints on the scarves. I mean, wearing them as headscarves only goes so far, and only coordinates with so many outfits. Plus, as a headscarf, you can’t see the full prettiness of the scarf. So when I was playing with my outfit this morning, I felt pretty smart for realizing I could wear the scarf like this. I love the way it looks!

Especially with this skirt, which is my new favorite. It’s from Oasap, and it is even better than I had hoped. It’s the perfect length –which is generally a concern with Oasap skirts because they tend to run short — it’s got pockets, which wasn’t said online, and the buttons are snap buttons! Which makes it much easier to put on. Plus, it has elastic in the waist so it will shrink and grow a bit. And it’s fuller than I had expected it to be, too! So in love.

We had a tea party today with my cousins, something we do a few times a year, so today had to be a quick hair day. Thank goodness for braids and hairpins with wet hair! I think I prefer my hair braided this way (Two side braids wrapped around the back of my head and pinned) rather than milkmaid braids. I think it’s more flattering to my face.Β  A New Way to Wear a Scarf | www.eccentricowl.comA New Way to Wear a Scarf |

I just recently discovered that Oasap has a TON of really cute iPhone cases. I’m not really picky about how hardy the cases are (I don’t need a big armored thing) because my current case (the one with the heart on it) is a cheap one that has been dropped MANY times and my phone is still just fine. So to discover so many cute cases for such good prices… yep. I had to get these floral ones. HAD to. And I’m quite happy with them! They’re plastic, and pretty lightweight, but they’ll do what I need them to do, and they’re so pretty!A New Way to Wear a Scarf |

Well, today was really hot, which was disappointing after the last few days of cool mornings and mild afternoons. I’ve been hoping fall weather would come because I am dying to wear tights and cardigans and my wool skirts, but… nope. Summer is still hot on hand. I felt a little fall-ish though, with the colors of this scarf. A New Way to Wear a Scarf | A New Way to Wear a Scarf | And these poor shoes… I really need to renew my shoe closet. In the last week four pairs of shoes have fallen apart — these ones, there are cracks side-to-side all the way through the soles beneath the balls of my feet. My sandals that I always wear, the sole is ripping off, my black flats have holes through the sides… and my beloved t-strap heels died. So I have one pair of wedges from Modcloth that I’m waiting for, and then throughout the winter I plan to slowly rebuild my shoe wardrobe with shoes that areΒ  a little more practical than my stiletto heels.Β  A New Way to Wear a Scarf |

I hope this week has been good so far for all of you! It has been feeling super slow to me, probably because it’s been hot and Asa hasn’t been wanting to sleep through the night (he has a tooth now, by the way!) OR nap during the day, which is tiring.

But it’s one day closer to Friday, when Mr. Owl and I are going to the drive-in movies to see E.T. and Back to the Future, and I cannot wait!

Happy Wednesday!

    Omg this post came at the perfect time.. ive been hunting high and low for a lightweight yellow scarf to transition into spring (its still freezing cold winter here in new zealand) and i finally found one today! It is gorgeous with a beautiful ethnic print but its square! I was so disappointed because i had no idea how to wear it.. this is perfect! You clever girl πŸ™‚ you look gorgeous as usual..

    Wait, how are you wearing it again? From the photos, I couldn’t see very clearly how you draped it… but it’s very pretty nonetheless.
    Back to the Future at a drive-in? That sounds perfect!

    I just posted about scarves on my blog because I’m absolutely obsessed and I LOVE the way you’ve worn yours here. The colours are so beautiful + love it with the striped skirt! <3 And yes me too, in dire need of expanding my shoe collection! xo

    I totally get the Parisian vibe from this, and I love it! This scarf works perfectly like this, and this is such good inspiration for the next time I see a pretty scarf at a vintage or thrift store! I also LOVE this skirt. It’s pretty much perfect. You really just look lovely, as usual.

    Such a lovely way to wear a scarf – looks like a halterneck top almost! πŸ™‚

    The print is really nice paired with the striped skirt too πŸ™‚ Sorry to hear about your shoes – no fun when they all start falling apart at once!

    SO cute! I love the french vibe– this is gorgeous! I have a weakness for scarves, and I can’t wait for it to get cooler here so I can start wearing them! The one you showcase here looks so pretty!
