Hello, dears! How are ya? It's Thursday. We've almost made it through the week! On days like today when I'm just not feeling it, an easy outfit is all I can handle. This has been my go-to since spring started, and I have a feeling I'll be repeating it again (and again). I love that it's incredibly cozy, but looks completely pulled together.

Do you ever get that feeling of "I want to spend money on this thing, universe. If you find it for me, I'll buy it," but then the universe is like "lol no" and won't give it to you? That's when I have to get creative. I've been looking for a spring-y scarf for a hot minute. I love circle scarves, and I wanted a lightweight, light-colored one to layer over tees and cardigans on cool mornings before the real Texas heat sets in.  Since the world wouldn't give me my dream circle scarf, I just bought a cute regular scarf and tied the ends to make it a circle scarf. Hmph. I'll show you, universe!

But really, this is one of the better ideas I've had in my lifetime. Buy regular scarf > tie the ends together > wear circle scarf > feel adorable. It's like a foolproof equation.


  1. so I have a feeling your 30x30 is gonna be wayyyy too easy. sure, it's only day 3, but so far ALL are adorable and don't look forced, not at all! I think the key is the pieces. srsly if/when I ever do one, i WILL be modeling mine after yours.

    love that you quoted the universe as "lol no", ha! I have most definitely done this exact thing with scarfs before and felt geniussss. I also love your floral scarf and would love to invest in one for Spring!!

  2. Adorable outfit!! I love circle scarves too! For some reason, I always feel like I'm going to lose regular scarves, even though I twist it around, but never with circle scarves!

  3. Ok first, thank you for leaving me such an awesome comment on my blog. The red hair definitely fits my personalty so I am realllyyy leaning towards doing it! Second, this 30x30 thing is going wayyyyyy to easy for you ;)


  4. I've done that with my scarves too! The great thing is that you aren't limited to wearing this scarf one way. Another great thing is that this scarf is pretty much made for this sweater. I loveeee the colors in it too :)

    Love the print of your scarf and the color of your cardi. So perfect for spring!

  6. I love this look! Your scarf is so spring-y, and it goes so well with the rest of your outfit. I've been doing that exact same scarf trick lately.

  7. This is such a great, everyday outfit. I have a black floral scarf, but I've really been wanting a lighter one not unlike yours! I've gotten into this weird funk where I like don't feel pretty unless I'm wearing heels, even though I have so many cute flats. Needs to get over that pronto so I can start wearing outfits like this.


  8. I can't believe I've never thought of that circle scarf trick! You are one brilliant lady! I've got a couple on hand that I will for sure be trying that with. By the way, I love the colors in this outfit. You look lovely!

  9. I looove this outfit, Nicole! It totally looks like an outfit I would wear, and the colors are spectacular together. I love the way those jeans look on you. The scarf trick you did here is one of my personal favorites - it instantly makes your scarf collection double :)
