Matching Scarves To Skinny Jeans - Weekday Wear Link Up

At it again with my matchy-matchy! Picking some colours out of these Fashion Scarf Girl Scarves I bought last month to build an outfit around. While I just posted these scarves last week, this time around I'm adding them to more colourful outfits with my skinny jeans. I wanted to wear them twice close together to meet my "wear any new purchase twice in the month I buy it" goal. Luckily I managed to wear both of these twice just before the end of June! Still going strong with No Buy July this month so far.


What I wore:

Jacket: Jeanswest Peggie kimono cardigan in purple mulberry marle
ScarfFashion Scarf Girl lush forest scarf
TopAtmos&Here grey Arizona zip tee
JeansSass & Bide The Winning Day Lovestate jeans in magenta
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

A colourful outfit for a bit of a sad day. Added all the colour to cheer myself up a bit, with my Sass and Bide magenta skinny jeans and purple cardigan. I really like pink and purple together so it won't be the first time I wear these pieces together! Plus the colours matched the pink and purple in the forest print of my scarf, even if the pink is a different shade.

The blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag matched the colours in the scarf too and I thought the grey tee was a good neutral piece to add to all those colours!

On this day we got to see our dog off as she went home with her family. Originally we were only going to look after her a little while, but as Coronavirus took hold things got more complicated. Plans changed a few times, so with her being with us so long it was a little hard to say goodbye, but nice to see her going home.

TeeAtmos&Here charcoal grey v neck tee
Jeans: thrifted ASOS petite green skinny jeans
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
BagRebecca Minkoff 2012 sky grey mini MAC bag

Why I wore it:

Again, matching the colours in a printed scarf to the colour of my jeans! The green skinny jeans work well with the green print in this scarf, and the blue Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag matched the blue bits nicely too! Kept the rest of my outfit a little more neutral with the black cardigan and grey long sleeve tee. I was thankful for this thicker black cardigan in the evening, as we had to again sit outside the hall for my son's sports class as there were too many people training in the venue for the COVID restrictions at the time. The cardigan and scarf kept me extra cosy on a very cold winter night!




How You Can Wear It 

A a colourful printed scarf  can be so easy to wear if you match it to another colourful piece in our outfit, like I have here with the bright skinny jeans, and the cardigan in the first outfit. You can always add a neutral base like a grey tee too to balance out the colours.

  13. I like your rule of wearing new purchases twice in that month - that's definitely something I need to try. More often that not, I get really excited about a purchase and then, when it actually gets delivered to me, I just let it it, unworn in my closet.

    So sad to see the doggy go, but at least you had fun while it lasted! Makes me wish I could see Layla, its been months. I guess I could text my cousin to see if he's back at work in the office and go get her, hah! (I don't like going to get her when he's home, especially now with the virus)

  54. What a great idea: wear a new outfit twice in the month I bought it! I'm normally anxious to wear something new, but I've made several online purchases during the Covid stuff and one or two are still just hanging in my closet. I did buy two winter tops that were on a really good sale and they're packed away (hot summer here).

    I can imagine how difficult it would be to send the furbaby home after you'd had him for awhile. I'm sure they appreciated you taking care of him.

    First of all so sad that you had to say goodbye to your dog :( But at least you were able to enjoy these days with this pretty one and you did a great job :)

    Talking about the outfit I like when you add this kind of prints and the unexpected pop of color with the accessories, that's a great thing to do..... to play with accessories in order to add that interesting detail ;)

    Wonderful styling. The outfits that you wore are very chic. The first outfit with the magenta jeans is wonderful. The scarf is very pretty and so is the RB bag. The second outfit with the green skinny jeans is fantastic. I always loved the combo of green and blue. How pretty is that scarf! Scarves are such a nice way to accessorize. I was just thinking how they can come in hand in the case we lose our face mask or something- they can even serve as a temporary face mask. Anyhow, I do like both of these outfits.
