Oh yeah, I’m that style blogger. The one who sees a fabulous ensemble on one of her favorites and steals it shamelessly.

Okay, not really. I actually try to avoid blatant outfit plagiarism, but we’re remixing people, and all rules are out the window. Only the strong and resourceful will survive thirty days of thirty items of clothing. I swiped this look off of Kendi before the proverbial ink on yesterday’s post was dry. But I told her I would on Twitter, so my conscious is clear, ya’ll.

A word of caution about the scarf-as-a-belt trick when you tie the scarf at the back: it is not bathroom friendly. I recommend using the same discretion as when wearing a romper. Don’t wait until the last possible second to visit the loo, because it takes some finagling to get out safely in a way that won’t result in your scarf ends falling into the commode. You can thank me later for that [perhaps TMI] advice.

  2. Super cute outfit! I saw the original on Kendi and was thinking about “borrowing” the idea as well. I really like how your’s looks with the chambray shirt.

  3. Oooh, I wanted to steal that look off Kendi too but find myself lacking in the right kind of scarf department. I love your version – the scarf is so great combined with the purse & shoes.

    1. Try your local thrift stores! That’s where I usually buy all of mine. This is just a big square scarf. I’ll do a quick post or video soon to show how it works :)

  4. You look gorgeous and the scarve tip is some very good advice. I, of course, already knew this since I did drop my scarve in the toilet. Never wore it again.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing!

  5. There is nothing too wrong with blatantly stealing an outfit inspiration from another blogger. And you did send her a tweet! :) You look lovely and it looks like you are having more fun with remixing this time!
