Practical Reason Layer a Necklace and Scarf Together
Layering is something we do easily with tops and sweaters but how about a necklace and scarf together??

I think one of the biggest requests I get is how to style scarves. Sure, most of us have them and like them, yet we aren’t always comfortable styling them.
Our idea for the week is all about layering necklaces. With this in mind, I decided to combine both a necklace and scarf together. Granted, Lesley has shown this idea before when showcasing jewelry to wear with a cowl neck top. And Charlotte has combined the two pieces so they looked like one.
But it’s never a bad idea to show a great idea a couple of times, right?

Shopping My Closet
I’m wearing things that I’ve had for years. The dress is one that I’ve had for over 10 years. And there’s a secret about it that I’ll share below.
Since the dress is dark, I added all the colors for my outfit with my accessories.
A headscarf is not something I wear often, but I was having a bad hair day (which is almost every day, LOL). While I love my hats too, I was going to be in a concert hall this evening and didn’t want to obstruct someone else’s view.
I’ve been paying attention when I see women wearing headscarves, and I like them when they have some vertical dimension to them. That’s why I used a long scarf and wrapped it and knotted it in the front.
Do you need a beginner guide for hats? I have one just for you.
Insider tip: Because my hair is thin and fine, I did use bobby pins to keep the headscarf in place in the back.
The Necklace and Scarf Together
I was experimenting with different necklaces and realized that my Gibby’s scarf basically matched this necklace. I looped the necklace twice around my neck and then tied the scarf to it on the side.
Insider tip: If you don’t know about Gibby’s scarves, then I hope you’ll check out her site. It’s a small business and these “twilly” versions are so versatile. Of course, I wear them as a scarf, but they are an inexpensive way to not only decorate your neck but also your hats, purses, and even belt loops.
One fabulous thing about Gibby’s is the material used. It’s stretchy all 4 ways and that makes them very comfortable.
BTW, Gibby’s also has headscarves and I don’t need bobby pins for hers because of the way it’s shaped.
My husband calls this my Skittles necklace and I’ve had it for years. Sometimes multi-colored jewelry is more versatile than a one-color necklace because it can go with lots of different pieces.
Zebra Print Heels
We all know the leopard prints, but I’m also loving the zebra prints lately. This pair of shoes is from Walking Cradles and was from many years ago. Unfortunately, they aren’t for sale anymore, but that doesn’t mean I don’t wear them!! Even Walking Cradles heels are more comfortable due to their tiny pillows in the sole.
It’s also helpful that I can wear my Sheec socks with pumps. I never used to worry about socks in my heels, but it is nice so that my feet don’t sweat in the shoes.
These are the ultra low-cut version of Sheec socks.
Two Secrets About the Outfit
I know I’ve worn this dress on the blog before yet I rarely wear it the way it’s supposed to be worn. Instead, I’m wearing it backward.
The other funny is one of my bracelets (the purple one) is actually a scrunchie. You’ve seen that scrunchies are making a return, right? This one was sent as part of a gifted skincare set, so I figured it would be fine on my wrist.
That bit of leopard you see in the back?? That’s my Ruby Ribbon bra that I discussed when exploring comfortable bras. I don’t mind my bra being exposed if it’s cute. In fact, maybe you thought it was a camisole?
Thank you for visiting my space on the internet. I like to showcase how it’s never too late to look great for women of any age, size or working with any budget.
I feel I’m here to help move beyond the fashion rules of yesterday and evolve. Style and clothes are made to give you joy. Not cause us stress because we are worried about what other’s think.
My hope is that you get ideas and inspirations from Charlotte, Lesley and myself. It’s not about copying what we wear, but about using what you already have and updating items along the way.
Most of all it’s getting us to think differently and dare I say, have fun?
