3 ways to wear a scarf (or, channeling Betty Draper)

Friday was a day off and I couldn't decide whether to use it to check things off my To Do list or relax after our trip to Chicago and a busy week of catch-up.

I ended up doing a little but not nearly enough of both.

Putting together this outfit I had hard time figuring out how to wear the scarf. I started with it tied loosely around my neck. and i put my hair up with a bunch of bobby pins. Not sure what I was going for--but it looked too weird to have it down.

Then I went kerchief on it, and tied it like a bandana. I was going for 60's sexy housewife look--think Betty Draper or Jackie Kennedy....without the white rimmed cat-eye sunglasses. I'm not sure I impressed E, but I still liked this change.

After half the day, I was getting annoyed with the scarf flapping. So I folded the whole thing to make it a headband.

I like the last, headband look. You're looking nice and thin, lady.

You are too cute for words. I love the outfit with the scarf. I think I like the around the neck version best because I don't know how to pull off scarves and you are rockin it in that photo.
