Back to Basics

Where did spring go?  Back to something warm.  Now that my closet edit is done for Spring Summer I feel safe enough to try out some of those 30-30 pieces again.

I found this scarf that I permanently borrowed from my Mom but never have gotten around to wearing.  Another item that will feel too wintery in a few weeks.  I loved how the color palette matched the red boots.  This outfit is so basic, just the jean skirt, the plain black sweater and tights but the accessories really kept it from feeling boring (like that one did).

Pulling off the whole scarf look again, and after my sisters comments (see comments after linked post) that a scarf need not feel “stewardessy” I tried to wear it with confidence.  Somewhere I read this inspiring quote, “You can change your clothes as many times as it takes to feel right, but once you walk out the door you need to rock it, because it’s confidence that really make the whole thing work.”

Sweater: Banana Republic, ’10

Jean Skirt: H&M, ’03

Boots: Miz Mooz via Nordstroms, ’10

Scarf: ??
