For this month’s “How I Wear My” post, Jill of Everything Just So and I thought we’d pay tribute to the simple scarf. Scarves inspire such passion in the people who love them but how do you choose your favorite? And how do you choose to wear it?
We are very excited to have such a wide array of scarves in this post; many different scarves worn many different ways.
“This is a 70cm Hermes called ‘Le Boubou H’. I have more information about this scarf on my blog post today that Hermes enthusiasts and scarf lovers alike will find interesting.”
“My scarf is silk, made in India, bought off a street vendor in New York. I wear it in the summer for some color and to keep the sun off my neck.”
“The scarf is a thrift store find, although it is silk. I’ve worn it a lot this rainy spring–as that is when the mushrooms appear, even though the colors are fall colors. We often hunt for morel mushrooms in the spring. There’s a morel in the bottom left.”
“This was a Mother’s Day gift from my son from a few years ago. To me, whatever the gift, when it’s from your kids, it automatically becomes your favorite! He did quite well picking out this scarf…don’t you think? I really love it! He’s got his mama’s taste.”
Sacramento has this to say about her scarf:
“Thanks to you, this scarf is going to become a future belt in an outfit post.”

“This scarf was given to me by a good friend. I love it because even though it’s covered with skulls it’s pretty!
For the 1st picture I found a tutorial for the “asymmetrical shoulder wrap” on MaiTai’s Picture Book blog because I wanted to find a way to wear it that exposed a good amount of the colour.
This is how I wear it for a casual day out. A top in a coordinating colour, jeans, and gray leather sneakers (not shown).”
“The 2nd picture is how I wore it to church last Sunday – I needed it to be more about the flowers and less about the skulls!”
Amy (a friend of mine and fellow Kenwoodian).
“The coral/orange scarf I bought at Vita Bella in Sonoma as I love the color. It’s very sheer and lightweight,perfect for summer. The burgundy scarf I’ve had for a long time. It’s one of my faves. It is a velvet burn out-very soft and light. I have had it so long I can’t remember where I got it! Maybe Skeeters? It’s not too bulky which is good for me as I get lost in big stuff. Both of the scarves are tied the same way – my new favorite way I learned from Pinterest. The thicker scarf makes the knot more interesting.”

“My most precious scarf right now is this Hermès Equateur GM Mousseline scarf in Framboise, designed by famous French animal painter Robert Dalley. I felt in love with this scarf when seeing it at Hermès back in 2010, but purchased a different mousseline instead (I had the funds for only one at the time). Recently acquired, this scarf is my current favorite scarf and I can’t wait to bring it on my upcoming vacation to the Northeast.”
Bliss of Stepping My Way to Bliss
“I found this scarf on Etsy and it was priced reasonably ($100) because the seller wasn’t 100% sure it was authentic Hermes. I loved the colors and new it was a vintage design…looking 1980ish. I did some online research and what I found convinced me that it was genuine (didn’t tell the seller, of course). But in order to justify (afford) the purchase, I decided to sell my burgundy Ferronniere Hermes scarf because I hardly ever wore it. Well, I just happened to have a dear friend (Adrienne) who was also in the market of finding an affordable Hermes and she was excited to buy it. By being savvy, we were both able to get beautiful Hermes scarves that matched our style and colors. Our Inner French Girls were extremely happy!”
Serene is getting in touch with her inner Babe Paley by tying her scarf around her handbag’s handle. She is so chic and hip in her Boho Glam look.
“I love scarves.
Besides diamonds and pearls they are my ‘go to accessory’.
My favourite scarves are the hand rolled silk squares from Hermes.
This black and white one is Hermes “Vintage” silk collection that I
purchased about 4 years ago from the Vancouver store. The silk is finer and
softer than their patented twill.
Tied simply using a basic square knot, done twice.

Thank you Adrienne and Jill for allowing me the opportunity to participate.
Lastly, I found my scarf at a vintage shop in Napa while shopping with my sister-in-law. I had been looking for a tie scarf in a versatile color and pattern and found not one, but three great tie scarves at this darling boutique.
All weekend, I’d been camping in the RV with my husband and had only washed my bangs; the water pressure in the RV is not strong enough to wash all of my hair. I opted for a my go-to hairstyle when my hair is less than fresh – a bun. I made it a little more interesting my tying a dark green tie scarf around my head.
|Please excuse the giant bobby pin coming out of my bun. Oops!|
The upcoming summer travel season is on our minds, so along with packing just enough of the right things to take on vacation, we want to talk about what to wear when you leave on your trip. Join Jill and me on June 5 for “How I Wear My: Chic Traveling Outfit.”
We’d love to see what you wear when traveling by plane, train, automobile, or cruise ship. Know some secrets for mixing comfort and style? Have an unbeatable travel outfit tip? Please share with us!
Thank you to all the participants who sent in photos this month. Jill and I appreciate each and every one of you beauties!
