Let’s Talk Addictions: How To Wear A Scarf

So today’s post is a little bit out of the left field. I have a revelation: I’m in love with scarves. Yup, scarves!!!



Okay, that’s not exactly how I wear my scarves. But, hey, whatever floats your boat! Haha!

When Justin and I went to Italy 3 years ago, I was blown away.

I mean, how could I not?! Ahaha! *Just kidding! But those statues were, let’s just say, a great bonus!*


The architecture was spectacular, people – welcoming, food – delicious. However, if I said that Italian women wore their scarves as a piece of jewelry, that would be an understatement. They wear it as if it was a piece of art! And let me tell you, even though I love scarves, I am pretty clueless as to how to wear them. *I know! It doesn’t even make sense! RIDICULOUS!*

Also as some of you may or may not know, spring in Canada is non-existent. One moment, it’s winter.

The next – full blown summer.

That being said, I want to make the most of it, even if only for a week. Check ça! *Look, I went all French Quebecer on you!*

Any other scarf addicts out there? What’s your favorite way to wear a scarf?

    Ok, this is too funny!

    When I studied abroad in Florence in the dead heat of summer, I also acquired an undying love of scarves!
    Linen scarves in the summer are fabulous! Tie them around your purse for a pop of color and use as a shawl in the air conditioning!

    Whenever I wear scarves, people always as how I tie it. The truth is it’s the only way I know how! The guy at the market in Florence who I bought my scarves from insisted I wear them a certain way haha.

  3. Ooh! Me too! And I love spring because it is scarf (and not coat) weather! Love this how-to infographic!

  4. I love this info on scarves. I always want to wear them. I buy them and then don’t wear them because all I can think of is to wrap it around my neck. Great ideas!

  5. I wore them when I was living in France for fashion reasons but then in England for practical reasons (it’s always windy!) but I’m so boring with how I style it…the same every time!

  6. You two are so cute! I always wear scarves to work even in the summer. I actually have a pile of winter scarves, spring scarves and summer scarves..it’s a problem. They just complete the outfit and keep the neck area warm 🙂

    I don’t wear scarves very creatively but I envy the people who can do all those cool styles and twisty things.

  8. I love scarves! And you’re right – European women wear them so elegantly! I usually just drape mine, no elaborate knots or anything. I wear them year-round though, and just use ones with floatier material in the summer (even though it’s Texas!).

  9. Oo! I loved this post! Hilarious Canada winter pic and great ways to wear scarves! I used to wear my scarf as a belt in Japan. I had to because I’d go out in the morning and it’d be all cold (Spring) and by the afternoon it was lovely but I had a scarf so I’d use it as a belt. I got the idea from seeing so many people there doing that. It was so convenient! And cute too. 😉 I like the idea of tying it around the head though to keep hair back. I may have to try that sometime.

  10. Absolutely YES and I just saved that graphic at the end of your post forever. I LOVE the idea of using one of my scarves as a handle for one of my bags! That is so cool!

    Thank you for all the wonderful suggestions, my friend! xo

  11. LOL LOVE that you went all French Quebecer on us ❤ I am addicted to scarves too, but have no idea how to wear them!! Thank you for the suggestions!

  12. I can never have too many scarves or too many ways to wear them! I nominated you for a Liebster award on my blog today! 🙂 http://babybluestorunningshoes.blogspot.com/2014/04/liebster-award.html
