Winter Blues: 3 Ways to Wear a Scarf // An Update

Good afternoon my kittens! I've been planning this blog post for a couple of days now, since I was finally able to access my clothing properly this weekend! Why's that, you may ask? Blog post with more details to come, but my clothes were strewn everywhere since I entirely revamped my closet. I never realized how much I appreciated having my wardrobe at my fingertips until that wasn't possible for me last week. ;)

First I'll start with my update: Blanc Mode is on Instagram! Give me some love and please comment on photos to let me know what you think!

Anyway, I've kind of been feeling uninspired lately outfit-wise. Maybe it's the cold, or maybe because I was sick, or maybe I'm just in some inexplicable rut. But regardless, it felt good to take these photos. I plan to do a blog post soon discussing what I've learned about myself so far- in terms of some personal style discoveries I've made. I haven't come very far, and I don't think it's a good idea to set a timeline for something like this. Slow and steady wins the race, right?

Plus, it wouldn't be very fun if I instantaneously discovered my personal style. Then this blog would no longer have a point...and the show must go on!

Can you tell how tying the scarf multiple ways gives my outfit an entirely different look each time?

The first one is your classic, bunny-goes-into-the-hole way to tie a scarf.
Next, we have my personal favorite. I found out about it when researching how to dress for optimal warmth in NYC (call me a dork but I do not cope well with the cold!). You tie it kind of like a pretzel- like this!
Lastly, another classic. But it does allow you to see my necklace more clearly!

Each way seems to have it's own look, so it depends what you're going for. The first method looks slimming, and draws your attention towards the center of my outfit. The pretzel method is unique, and prevents wind from hitting your chest! The third method, however, isn't my favorite. It might have looked better paired with a more fitting blouse, but here it just makes me look wide.

Sweater (XS) / Jeans / Booties - thrifted / Similar scarf / Sunnies / Similar clutch (love this one too) / Rings / Necklace - gift

What's your favorite way to style a scarf? Did you learn something new with my pretzel-method? ;)
As usual, please comment and let me know what you think!
