Getting Creative

Top: Lauren Conrad Kohls (old) | Vest & Scarf : Old Navy | Jeans: Elle at Kohls | Boots: Francescas (similar) | Rings: Forever 21 | Bracelets: Forever 21 and LovelySWAG

I love scarves. They are my tried and true fall accessory. They are my statement necklace for the season. The only downfall is the weather in Texas. It is so hit or miss. It's hot. It's cold. It's warm. It's cool. You just never know. 

I have been itching to bring out all of my scarves, but it's still a little warm to wrap and tie them around my neck. So, I decided to just to drape it over my vest. Duh. Why haven't I done this sooner? 

I will find ways to incorporate my fall attire regardless of the warmth. As much as I love summer, I am ready for my boots, scarves and layers. Since I live in Texas, I have gotten quite creative with looking like I live in cooler temperature states without sweating my bohunkus off! 

Anyone else feel me out there? I know you SoCal gals are experiencing steamier temps than we are!

P.S. I am over at Leeann's blog talking about statement shoes. Yes, statement shoes. And there is a HUGE giveaway over at Sharon's blog. Make sure to hope over to both!

I never would have thought to tie knots on the ends of a scarf and just drape it! Always thinking!! Love this look, the neutrals are so nice.

Yes, I'm in love with scarves as well. The NC weather seems to be the same....50 one day, 90 the next. It will be straight up fall one day!!

WANT the vest. Adorbs.

TheTinyHeart said...

Your boots are SO cute with the detailing in the back. And totally jealous of everyone that has that cargo vest. Please send your warm weather back to Jersey. It was 70 on the weekend which was heavenly but now it's chilly again.

I heart vests!!! Love those boots too!

Alyssa @ Sugar, Spice, and a Dash of Advice said...

You belong in a magazine! I love this outfit and the location. Weather in Maryland has been hot one day and cold the next which is so confusing! I wore a scarf the other day when it was hot... so I feel confused too :)

Shannon @ Bungalow960 said...

Francesca's is my Mecca. We have two, and one is way better than the other. I must go find boots like that.

I love it! I wish that vest was still available at Old Navy... I have been searching for a similar one and can't find it :( You look great, as always!

Wine and Summer said...

Great outfit! I love the boots!

Shea Sayers said...

I love the look of the scarf draped over the vest, I'm trying this for sure! The weather here in KS is so odd too--it was cold and rainy this weekend but getting up to 80 today!

Christy said...

Now why in the heck did I never think of this???? Awesome idea with the scarf. I will definitely be doing this ASAP!

Have an awesome day!

Meredith said...

Great Fall outfit! And I love the way you incorporated the scarf!

Holly said...

Stop it. Just stop it! Stop being so fashionable and wearing all the outfits that I would wear. We really are fashion twins! And scarves are my absolutely favorite accessory. It's rare that I leave the house without one. Even in the summer :) Just love that outfit, doll!

Tiffany @ Polka Dotted Cats said...

80-90 degrees in San Diego this week. I should probably move somewhere cooler. I love the scarf idea! You know, I've seen those boots in black and the red zipper part really throws me off, like I'm terrified it will clash with everything. Even though on a scale of 1-10 its probably a negative point to worry about...

Niki Caron said...

Love this!!! Especially those boots! I so wish I had a Francesca's near me! Going to check out your shoe post now!

Kristin said...

I love every thing about this outfit pretty lady! Those boots are sooo cute! I think I need to take a trip to Francescas + I also am obsessed with scarves! It's still very hot here too :( no sign of Fall at all! Good idea draping it on your shoulders though. Might have to try that!!! xoxo

I'm with you! Fall needs to get here soon! We had a couple days of weather in the 70's and then it's back up to nearly 90. You look amazing! I love your boots!

Jessica @ Here(and)Now said...

I love scarves year-round... and with some sneaky tricks (linen scarves, careful draping) they really can add some pizzaz to outfits most months of the year (well at least here in Nashville, TX gets a little hotter!)... this is a genius way to rock scarves before the Fall chill really hits... Love it!

Jessi Fuller said...

Where are your favorite places to buy scarves?

I always find it is hit or miss and I would love to find that one store that I can count on!

:)

Sippy Cups and Pearls said...

So stinkin cute! If I had the money, I'd fly you here (where I live) and take you shopping with me. hahaha. or better yet, I'm really just from a smaller place...we better fly elsewhere with bigger and better shops. ha! you hear of all the rich celebrities flying their coffee in (daily) and it's ridiculous but I could possibly do that with a stylist :) ha

Maca said...

Shanna, you look wonderful and I love the idea of just draping a scarf like that instead of bundling up when it's not that cold. Minnesota definitely is bundling up kinda weather already so I'm trying to find new ways to tie them around my neck.
Love your boots!
