I've been getting more and more brave with scarfs and bandanas. It started that I'd just make it narrow, and tie it up like a headband (here, here and here)... then I got a bit braver, made it wider (here and here). Now I've gone full-blown, and I have it turban-style. I think it's a great option for bad hair days, and it can be so much more fun than just a pony-tail or a hat.
I've been on the lookout for some large square scarfs for this look, and lucked out by thrifting two on my birthday weekend. I'd definitely still love to add more to my collection, but this one has so many colours in it that it is pretty versatile.
I'm also loving how the scarf with the cardigan just seems to make this dress seem much more fall appropriate. Being mint and long, I find it challenging to wear with tights and therefore make it seem more fall/wintery, but the added layers seem to do the trick. I'm looking forward to wearing it in similar styles throughout the colder months now... and perhaps it'll give me motivation for my other dresses that are also longer/full skirts, and challenging with tights.
