Striped Dresses Scarves Chloe Ethel Bag

Two outfits I wore back at the start of May, when I just needed to add some cute scarves to these summer striped dresses to make them autumn weather appropriate.


What I wore:

Cotton On 'Tina' white striped tee dress in Lissy black / Gardenia with blue windowpane scarf chloe ethel bag and converse | awayfromblue

Chloe small Ethel bag in light khaki on arm with striped dress | awayfromtheblue



Scarf: thrifted no brand navy grid print scarf
DressCotton On 'Tina' white striped tee dress in Lissy black / Gardenia
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in black
Bracelets: the usual
BagChloe small Ethel bag in light khaki


Why I wore it:

Last time I wore this black and white striped tee dress with a blue statement necklace I really liked the combination, so I tried to replicate a similar outfit again with this blue grid print scarf. When I saw the scarf in the opshop I knew it would look so cute worn with striped pieces, and I really liked this outfit! Even if it was a little warm for the scarf in the middle of the day, it was nice in the cooler morning and evening.

Felt my Chloe Ethel bag was overdue another wear, and it was just the right size. I had an appointment to go to in the morning and this fits so much - easily space for all of my essentials plus the latest library book I was reading, for entertainment in the waiting room.

This was such a comfortable outfit too, as aside from the appointment I was just working from home. I've been liking dresses on those kind of days, simple instant outfits!


Last worn: black and white striped tee dress, Converse, Chloe Ethel bag. First time I've worn the blue grid print scarf as I thrifted it back in summer.

Why I wore it:

Another working from home and school run outfit. Wanted to add some colour to this outfit, but couldn't decide that morning which scarf would look best when the one I'd planned seemed too warm for the day - it was quite humid! This lighter parrot print scarf was one I eventually settled on, and I really liked it with the dress. It did make me a little late to drop the kids off at school though, trying on all these different scarves in the morning. 😂 Thankfully we made it in class before the bell as I was parent helper. It ended up being a much cooler afternoon too so I was wishing when I picked up the kids from school that I had picked the warmer scarf to wear!

Again the Chloe Ethel bag was the perfect neutral bag for this - although I did just have to carry my essentials this time around, I thought the caramel colour was really nice with the print in the scarf.


Last worn: parrot print scarf, navy striped shift dress, blue Converse, Chloe Ethel bag (above).

How You Can Wear It:

Stripes are fun to print mix with! For a subtle but still fun print mix, try adding a printed scarf to a striped dress like I have in these outfits.

  3. I love adding a scarf to an otherwise too cool outfit as well, but usually I opt for one of these blanket scarfs. It is way colder year round here in Germany.

  4. Hello Mica, I hope you're having a good start of the weekend!

    I just love that you always plan both outfits around the same idea. And stripes are the main character in this proposal! Definitely that scarf is the best way to have some warmth in the coldest hours of in-between season. My favorite proposal is the first one, but maybe you can switch some of the accessories with the dresses for more options :D

    Happy weekend!

  6. Such cute outfits! I love scarves with dresses - it's such a nice way to help regulate temperature. I'm not sure I like the colour of that fabulous bag with all the blues in the first outfit, but I LOVE how it ties in with the cream in the second look's scarf. It has parrots?? OMG!

    Happy weekend, my dear!

  9. Scarves are the perfect accessories in between seasons. I particularly love that parrot print one worn with your navy and white striped dress. This is just gorgeous! xxx

  10. That Chloe bag is beautiful! You don't normally see bags in colors like that (at least I don't, but I'm also generally not looking, ha!)--a neutral that isn't just black, gray, navy, etc. Love a good, comfy striped dress! I have one that's very similar to your first one, except the stripes are more of a cobalt/royal blue!

    1. Yes it's such a great neutral although the "light khaki" name doesn't make sense to me, it's more like a caramel... but I love it!

  11. This is absolutely the perfect way to print mix. The stripe dresses just lend themselves so well to the scarves!!

  21. you make wearing striped dresses so chic. Now I want at least one striped dress, hahah. I don't know why but I have yet to find a striped dress for me yet. The way you wore those scarves looked oh so cozy! Never would I get to cover my neck here now that it's extremely toasty plus humid. Hoping some cool breeze will come our way soon. Take care dear :)
