Pretty in Paisley

I've seen a few other people wear the belted-scarf look so I thought I'd give it a try. I really like it! I originally imagined this outfit with cuffed jeans and flats, but the fact that it's still winter (and March!) meant I had to swap in boots. Seriously, it's cold (about -40°C with the wind chill). And that sound of snow crunching underneath your footsteps? It's starting to give me a headache.

I didn't mean to start complaining there, but y'all now how I feel about February and March in Alberta. In other news, I wrote my psych midterm today and it was awful! And the final exam schedule is out. I don't have a week without a major assignment or exam until April 28th! (Wait, am I still complaining? Sorry!)

Okay, basically, here's what I wore today and I felt cute as a button. I bought this shirt a few months ago but didn't wear it until today. I love it!

paisley scarf


today's outfit


Striped top - Ricki's size XXL
Grey tank - Warehouse One size XXL
Jeggings - Old Navy size 18
Vintage scarf - Divine
Belt - Northern Reflections size XL
Boots - Naturalizer size 11
Ring - Penningtons


  1. Very cute! I'm always self-conscious about belting things, thinking that it'll highlight my belly too much, but you just proved me wrong. I'm definitely trying this!

  2. Oooh Supercute! I love it!
    and your so beautiful!!! :)

  3. I love the shirt and the gorgeous paisley and the skinny jeans. The belt looks really cool, but does it need a lot of adjusting as you move from sitting to standing?

  4. Oh, P.S. I totally feel your pain with the cold. I'm freezing my butt off in Edmonton and can't wear my cute new dress ... probably until July.

  5. That ring is gorgeous, and looks so good with the scarf.

  6. i love your style!
    you rock the paisley well. (=

    stay lovely!


  7. Ive never thought of this before but it looks great! I may have to try this myself! You have a gorgeous face doll :) Love it! x

  8. I adore the belt over the scarf. Totally gotta try it, so cute!

  9. @Chantal, thank you! I'm not sure if belts highlight my belly or accentuate my waist but either way I love them!

    @Jazmine, thank you!

    @geetabix, thanks! it needs a bit of adjusting, but not a whole lot. it was the scarf more than the belt that needed adjusting. & I'm glad someone knows my pain! It makes me happy that you're in Edmonton, I am too. :)

    @Polly, thank you!

    @hellomissa, Thanks! I love paisley!

    @alliejayne, thank you! I was glad I gave it a try, it's a very cool look

    @Nefertiti, Merci beaucoup :)

    @X, thanks! I hope you post an outfit if you do give it a try

  10. Amazing ring !
