Case of the Mondays.

It's a cold, gray, rainy Monday morning; the kind of day where you just want to lie in bed, not get dressed and be totally unproductive. I'm taking on this dreary Monday in style...throw on some leggings, your favorite pair of knee length boots, and a chunky cozy sweater and you're good to go. Here was my inspiration this morning as I got ready for the day ahead:

What's your Monday look?


A little scarf goes a long way.

Whenever I go thrifting, I always keep my eyes peeled for vintage scarves. Not only are they usually inexpensive, but I find myself using them in so many ways to pull together an outfit. Here are some of the ways to accessorize a simple scarf:
  • Spruce up your exercise duds by grabbing a scarf from your closet and using it to tie your yoga mat up. So chic! All your workout buddies will be jealous.
  • Wear it as a necklace- tie small knots into the scarf and clasp it in the back by either tying a knot or using a safety pin. Layering different scarves would look great too! Here's mine:
  • Use it as a belt- cinch it around a skirt or a dress at the smallest part of your waist and tie it at the side, very flattering!
  • Tie it around your hair as a headband. Blake Lively rocked this look in Gossip Girl:
  • Whenever I need a little pop to my outfit, I grab a scarf and tie it to my handbag.
  • And last but not least, use them for wall decorations. Get them in funky colors and arrange them in a pattern for your wall, great for a dorm room!
PS- This morning on the Nate Berkus Show, he pressed and framed silk scarves for wall decorations. I like your style, Nate!
