Lengthen your look with a long scarf

Long red scarf

If you’re looking for a simple way to elongate an outfit, try wearing neutrals and then throw on a splash of color with a long thin gauzy scarf.  This outfit seems to give a nod to the 1920’s.

Summer weight cloche-like hat is silver/grey tweed polyester with a cute same-fabric flower on the side.  Purchased at The Difference.

Close fitting v-neck long sleeve t-shirt is a soft and fluid 75% cotton 25% rayon blend, in a steel grey, Ya Los Angeles brand.

White ‘cami’ is actually a high neck sports bra I often use in low necked situations instead of a cami or tank.  It’s Moving Comfort Brand, purchased at Title Nine Sports.

Crop pants are a white 55% linen/45% cotton, with  plenty of details including cargo pocks at both thighs, and matching button down back pockets on the seat. They were given to me by my very fashionable neighbor Joan.

The scarf looks red, but is actually a mix of colors including red, dark blue, pale blue, and grey.  Fabric is a 100% cotton loose open weave that is summer weight and flowy, with fringe at the ends. Purchased at local boutique called Gazelles.

Earrings are pewter/grey and were purchased at Fred Meyers.

Shoes are two-toned ballerina flats with diagonal elastic closure, inside on the side tag it reads “Wonder Glove Silver White Merrell Performance Footwear”.  Beautiful scrolling decorative stitching, artfully layered fabric on toe, these shoes feel a bit like walking barefoot.  I purchased them at Nordstrom.
