Luckily in Kentucky we are still at the point where periodically there is a day warm enough for just a vest. So, I am brining out my J.Crew Herringbone for this whimsical look. Such a classic.Processed with VSCOcam with m3 presetTo style this look I started with a multi-colored square silk scarf. The scarf creates a super unique focal point to base the entire look off of. Mixing prints can be tricky and can either go so wrong, or so right. I loved the way the herringbone in the vest and the print in the scarf really played off each other. In my opinion, this is mixing prints done right. I like to stick to the rule that you add a geometric with an abstract. Here the herringbone serves as the geometric and the scarf serves as the abstract.

Hats are a perfect way to stay warm in the winter, while taking a look to the next level. Being the “Southern Belle” that I am, I love a floppy hat every season of the year. Because I was wearing brown on top in my hat and on the bottom in my boots, I wanted to keep it consistent by wearing a brown bag in the middle. This rid any opportunity for distraction and kept the focus on the scarf, right where I wanted it.
