Put a Little Spring in Your Scarf + Giveaway

different ways to tie a scarf

Well, it officially feels like Spring in Florida! This season doesn't last long here as daytime temperatures are already in the mid-80s, so I try to get in as much of my Spring wardrobe as I can. I love florals and pastels and lace, but I've always wanted to incorporate scarves more. A pretty scarf tied just the right way can transform an outfit from ehhh to elegant. The problem is I have no idea how to wear a scarf other than looped a few times around my neck.

As it often does, the Target Dollar Spot inspired me. Among the various treasures on the shelves, I found this book, 25 Ways to Style Your Scarf, which is beautifully illustrated, in addition to being really useful. Sure, you can scroll through hundreds of YouTube videos about different ways to tie a scarf, but I love the convenience of having a book within hands reach that I can easily reference without needing to fumble through my phone. (If you're interested, the author of this book wrote a longer version with 50 scarf styles!)

Since it's March Madness and I have a cute, lightweight USF scarf that I never wear, I decided to take it for a spin and recreate some of the scarf styles in the book. I think they came out pretty well for my first attempt!
