Waterfalls // Blue Suede Dress and Scarf Handle

This Season's Gold // Scarf Handle 6

Happy Monday! I have officially returned to work mode this week at school, and my vacation days seem so far away already. However, I’m happy to be sharing a travel diary soon, so look out for that. I’ve recently taken to trying new ways to update my older bags to spice them up. This burgundy bag is actually a cross-body with a detachable chain, so I decided to play with the pink details of my Moschino scarf to match my suede pumps for this look.

This Season's Gold // Blue Suede Dress and Pink details

I liked the idea of playing with color up against this blue suede dress because it can sometimes be a challenge to match a navy dress with the right navy shoes. Of course, a nude pair would look just as nice, but the waterfall effect on the front of this dress made me instantly think of the softness of a scarf that I enjoyed pairing with this tough quilted bag.

In order to make the scarf handle, I simply folded the large squared scarf into a triangle (from diagonal corners), rolled it into a thin long layered roll – as if to wear it around my neck – and slid one side through the hoop and then through the other across the bag. Since there was extra material on top, I took the top and made a knot to make a double layer of the scarf as part of the handle. And suddenly – an instant color coordinated look with my shoes and lips!
