Summer scarves used to irritate me terribly. I could never understand why, after all six months of freezing New England winters, ladies would want to welcome the first days of warm weather with… another scarf.
Then I met Corey Jane my first week at college. Straight out of the 70s though born in 1989, CJC is a true flower child. She can pair a scarf with anything and everything, and has a whole rack in her room for her plentiful collection. She taught me that they can add so much to an outfit, dress up a casual shirt, complement a plain dress. And they’re just so easy to wear! Plus this time of year, as we experience chilly mornings but warm afternoons, they’re a great tool for layering.
Corey wouldn’t be caught dead in most preppy Lilly Pulitzer Murfee scarves (even though I would kill for them), but even she couldn’t resist this one. Pair the “Pirates Bootyniere” pattern with a cream colored dress, and you’ll be ready to jump into spring, despite the chilly first weeks.
