The Non-Functional Scarf Accessory


Like many style bloggers, I'm a huge fan of scarves because they can be such a powerful, outfit-making accessory. Unfortunately, scarf season is nearly non-existent in LA--seriously, blink and you'll miss it! So today I am introducing the non-functional scarf accessory. This skinny lace scarf is simply too dinky to provide any warmth; it's purpose is purely decorational. Neck-tie details have been trending the past few seasons, especially when paired with blouses. I see myself wearing this simple one (i.e. instant classic) I got from Forever 21 a lot as it makes a perfect blank canvas to build upon.

As for the moto jacket, I'm sure you've seen it before. I first noticed it at Nordstrom last spring but they had trouble keeping it in stock before I could bite the bullet. It's a real suede jacket for less than $200! Now it's back for fall in plenty of colors and I've noticed a lot of other retailers are carrying it too. I ended up getting mine at Bloomingdale's recently when they were having their "private sale" and I'm quite happy with the fit and feel of it. It's seriously a fall must-have, and I'm still considering picking up another color! I'm wearing an XS and it fits perfectly.

  1. Loving this white lace scarf as an added detail babe! :) So glad you reached out to me as well about your interest with engagement groups. Haha I'm from LA as well so I pretty much know what you mean when you say that it's basically #summerforever here so I like to rock the skinny scarf as well.

  3. Same way in Louisiana...hold your breath when we can actually wear a scarf for 5 seconds! I hate it sometimes. Neck scarves are definitely one of my favorite accessories, but I don't get to wear them as often as I would like :(

  15. Great jacket. I agree, I almost never wear a scarf in LA. I love outerwear and so I like to jump right into my closet of jackets and costs when it gets cold but a skinny scarf is really nice for styling.i have a couple of small silk handkerchieves I wear around the neck and this is a nice reminder to wear them!

  20. I totally love scarves as well and as autumn is creeping up upon us (well, it's VERY present already here in Sweden) I indulge in scarves as much as I can. But I do have to say... out of like the 50 scarves I have, I love the one my grandmother made me the most. :)
    Thanks for a great post sweetie!

  34. It's so interesting how fashion has evolved so far that we now use certain items that were only functional as fashion accessories. I think a scarf is a lovely statement piece and while it definitely is still quite the functional piece for colder climates, the skinny scarf is a great way to still feel cozy and autumnal without it causing you to overheat in warmer climates!
