The Look: The Scarf Tuck


sleeveless waterfall vest
Ladies: ever wish you could hit that snooze button just one more time in the morning without having to sacrifice looking chic? I have discovered the solution: the scarf tuck!

Today I show you a style tip so easy a toddler could do it. Brought to you from my favorite wall...


sleeveless vest


 DKNY bag 



nude heel sandals


sleeveless vest heels


Tory Burch 



 street style sleeveless vest 

70s floral scarf

DKNY tote

sleeveless vest 2016

Sleeveless jacket: New Chic* (get it here) GET 20% OF USING THE CODE '20off1574
Top: Temt (similar here)
Denim shorts: Sportsgirl (similar here)
Bag: DKNY (Sold out, similar)
Scarf: Lovisa
Heels: ASOS (similar here)

I know, I know, yet another scarf styling post. Gees, after '10 ways to tie a scarf' and 'the ultimate scarf style guide', you think I'd turn the notch down a bit when it comes to these fabric-y fiends. But this style tip was just too good not to share!

I have to admit, I totally didn't invent this, I just took it from the street style pages and made it my own. With fashion season in full swing, I really do find myself just as much in awe of the saucy, stylish ladies on the streets as I do of the collections themselves. Pssttt.. you can re-live New York Fashion Week with my cheat sheet here
 
 
To get the volume and swing of a lob without having to chop off those precious inches, just tie your scarf around your neck and over your hair. I have to admit that I've been doing this a lot lately, it's a super polished remedy to all of your last-minute hair woes. 
 
I'm not letting the Seventies trend get out my grasp anytime soon and I've given it a polished edge with my New Chic khaki green sleeveless coat. My favorite thing about this piece is the way that it swings when you walk. My friends always tell me I have a 'Rachel strut' (cringe), so at least I will be able to take full advantage of its swing power.

This high neck lace top and denim shorts is my Summer go-to combo. I'm no Einstein here, you really can't go wrong with denim. And I paired my DKNY tote with a classic pair of heeled sandals. 
 

Speaking of Einstein, the fashion blogger boffins at 'IFB' chose my NYFW piece as one of their best of the week. If you fancy exploring more of the fashion-blog-o-sphere, check out these beauties below:
