Happy Friday!  To get ready for the weekend, I went for a casual t-shirt and skirt look.  To keep it somewhat interesting, I decided to have some fun with the belting.  I found this super cute scarf at H&M when I went in last weekend {same trip where I found my scalloped shorts} and couldn't let it go.  The mix of pinks, burgundys, and olives as well as the scattered leaves print make it the perfect Fall accessory item {not to mention the fact that scarves are one of my favorite ways to jazz up a simple outfit}.

I've seen the Japanese-inspired obi belt in a few lookbooks this Fall, and wanted to try belting this scarf as such {good thing Elaine has a tutorial on this!}.  Although I was a bit wary of wearing something so wide and colorful on my waist, obi belts are actually quite figure flattering!  I think the fact that because the belt loops back on itself and transitions from wide to narrow, it surprisingly enough makes your waist look more narrow than it is.  I have a feeling I'll be sporting the obi belt look much more often.  :)

Nice! I was actually planning to do this with a regular scarf that I had when the weather got cooler. I didn't realize that H&M had actual scarf obi belt. Must check it out!

Kileen said... [Reply]

oh no, it's not an actual scarf obi belt. it's a scarf that i tied to look like an obi belt. :)

Cher said... [Reply]

oh haha. you stole my idea then! LOL. Great minds think alike! ;)

Kileen said... [Reply]

i'll have to see you style it too!! scarves are seriously the best accessory item. :)

Like that you took a bright outfit and made it fall-friendly with the leaf-patterned scarf. :)

Kileen, I LOVE this!!!  I recently got an actual obi belt (which was on my wishlist - score!) but this is such a unique DIY that I'll have to try it!  I'm always looking for new ways to wear scarves and this is perfect!!!  Thanks for linking to Elaine, I'm sure you'll be seeing this on me soon too :)

I love the color blocking going on here. The scarf is the perfect touch. I'll definitely be trying this tutorial soon.

Frannie Pantz said... [Reply]

This is such a cool look!  Love the belt and it is very figure flattering!

The obi-style belt definitely came out nice. I love your color blocking outfit as well! I have been trying to put together a color blocking outfit for a while now but nothing seems to work for me! I think I might have to browse around alittle bit more for inspiration. I have visited your site many times but this is the first time I've commented, I love all your oufits and thank you for continuing to bring new ideas for us readers and fellow bloggers ;)

Thank you so much for commenting!! And I'm so happy to hear that you these outfits inspirational. And I would say that if you are just starting to add color to your outfits, start with accessories!

Oh my god, Kileen! This is so amazing! I've never seen anyone wear a scarf like this -- I've belted them before, in bows and such, and I love doing that, but this looks so wonderful and fresh. I really think it's flattering--to you, and your general outfit. Imagine the possibilities of doing this with other scarves and items in your wardrobe. You can have a field day. I'm heading over to Clothed Much to see the tutorial because I can't wait to try this on a day that I don't know what to wear, haha! This is gorgeous. I also really love your purse/shoes... I love pairing nude accessories with bold bright outfits. It's so beautiful.
