A Light Scarf To Dress Up A Summer’s Day
Boy, was it HOT when I had this photoshoot! The sun was blaring down even in the late afternoon. This weekend was me and my boyfriend’s 2-year anniversary, whoot whoot :). We celebrated it by dining at the finest sushi restaurant in NYC, Sushi Nakazawa (Pictures can be found in my Instagram soon – @theStyleWright). Nakazawa was the apprentice of Jiro from Jiro Dreams of Sushi, so it actually took us a month in advance to get the exact date we wanted. Can we say scrumptious?
This dress seemed so plain without a necklace, but a necklace wouldn’t have sufficed, so despite the scorching heat, I decided to play up my outfit with a light scarf that I got from Paris a few years back during a Eurotrip I took.
Scarf: some botega on the Parisian streets, sorry!
Sneaker wedges: Forever 21 Black Suede sneaker wedges. I really gotta stop buying things that you guys can’t buy. Ugh!
Dress: American Apparel. Find similar ones here.
These are by far the coolest earrings I own. Can’t get away with them at work, but on the weekends, you can see my strutting in them when I want to put a little edginess into my outfits. I tied the back of the scarf into a double knot and let the ends hang loose – the scarf was one of those square scarfs similar to the Hermes scarf.
And guess what my ultimate vice is? Handbags, bags, and bags. I got this sucker literally 2 days after it hit the flagship store on 5th Avenue. I couldn’t help myself! Saint Laurent has to be one of my favorite designers next to Chanel, especially for handbags and shoes. I believe they only had 3 in stock, so I was a lucky gal.
Bag: Saint Laurent Monogramme Bourse python-embossed mini leather bucket bag. You can find the non-embossed version here.
The bag can’t fit much, but it’s super cute, and can fit your phone, small wallet, couple of lipsticks, a portable mirror, and other small things. Probably one of the cutest grab-and-go bags out there. At least I think so.
Hope you all have a great rest of the week. Let’s start this Monday off right!
