Objects of My Affection: Floral Scarves

No matter what part of the world I’m in, Spring is by far my favorite season of the year. The temperature is always just right and every now and again, you’ll get a sprinkle or two of rain just in time to make the outdoors bright, beautiful and colorful. Which might explain my current obsession with floral scarves. I figure since April showers bring May flowers, I might as well look the part while being prepared for the rain.  And with May just around the corner, what better time to whip out the floral scarves than now? So here’s a quick list of my top picks.

What to Wear: Turban Two Ways – San Francisco Road Trip

Lately, I’ve been pretty infatuated with turbans in good part to it’s a classy quick fix solution to a big bad hair day dilemma. So it was a no brainer hairstyle of choice when figuring out what to wear tomorrow on our road trip up the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco, especially since we’ll be driving with the top down. Because the difference between having a glamorous wind against your skin Grace Kelly moment and an embarrassing hair in your face gaff is, more often than naught, simply a well placed head scarf around a thirty second bun. Because we all know that’s all we probably have time for the morning before leaving town anyways. So I came up with two turban inspired, simple California fun looks that are comfortable to wear on the road, and chic enough to make a statement upon arrival.

 

TURBAN TWO WAYS

ON THE ROAD

  • For those of us who are turban confused, here’s a great turban tutorial by the beautiful and very talented Keiko Lynn.
  • Classicly shaped oversized Lanvin sunglasses with the perfect amount of hardware make for old meets new Hollywood chic and enough coverage to protect our eye from the suns beautiful yet harmful rays, especially on those super sunny California days.
  • A flirty little feminine scalloped lace tee by Funktional make even the most casual outfits romantic.
  • I love these Cleopatra like earrings by Eddie Borgo, lending some architecture to this otherwise softer outfit.
  • Southwestern printed shorts by IRO for a South West road trip. What could be more perfect?
  • Slip on. Slip off. These glittery espadrilles by Jimmy Choo are perfect to slip on once you’re at a vista point and to slip off once you’re relaxing in the car with your feet on the dashboard.
  • This outfit would not be complete without a sunny punch of neon in the form of a Tory Burch snake crossbody bag where you can store all your road trip essentials.
