Lulu's Part Two: Boho Luxe
Hello! Today I wore a very bohemian- luxe look perfect for fall. Lulu's recently sent me a few items in the mail to review on my blog and this fabulous scarf is one of them. This is Lulu's Hayride Beige Fringe Scarf. As its name suggests, this scarf conjures up images of hayrides, apple picking, football games and basically any other outdoor fall activity. I am not exaggerating when I say that this may be my favorite knit scarf of all time. To begin with, it is extremely soft and comfortable. I would say that this is the fashionable alternative to a sweatshirt for those chilly fall and winter days.
Another thing that I love about it is the size. This scarf is a lot larger than it appears in the photo on Lulu's.com. I consider that a plus because there are so many ways to style longer/wider scarves. I wore the scarf today in an unusual fashion. I wore it over a tank top so that in the front it looked kind of like a vest or a shirt but from the back you could tell that it was a scarf. All I did was hang the scarf around my neck and then belt it in around my waistline.
A third thing that I adore about this scarf is the beige color- talk about the perfect, versatile color for fall! It would look great with maroon, forest green, orange, red and pretty much any other fall color.
Another sweet thing about this scarf is that it works with pretty much any wardrobe. You could totally see this scarf on your fashionable best friend or sporty best friend. This scarf unlike body-con dresses or booty shorts leaves a good impression on the adults around you. My assistant principal at Godwin even said that she thought the scarf was beautiful and appreciated how I draped it.
The last main thing that I loved about this scarf was the fringe trim. It adds such a boho-cool vibe!
Now, onto how I styled this gem. I wanted to keep kind of a relaxed, bohemian feel to this look so I added a quirky maxi skirt, plain tank top and a vintage belt. To amp up the luxe factor of this look, I added sky-high flatforms, dream catcher earrings and feather earrings. I wore my hair down and natural with just a little bit of makeup- mascara, lip gloss and eyeliner.
Jumping onto an entirely different subject, I have a job interview at Justice tomorrow! Justice, previously know as Limited Too, sells fun girls clothing. They also carry accessories and jewelry for little girls. I have been looking for a job in a retail store as a salesperson for a while now and would be delighted if I got the job. Anyone have any tips or tricks for getting a job there?
