Easy Summer Style: Tie a Vintage Silk Scarf in your Hair

Hot. Humid. Summer. Florida. Also, mosquitos.

Happy solstice, y’all!

Clearly its far too muggy for complete sentences. We wouldn’t want to overly exert ourselves right now, would we?

Here’s a very easy style idea that takes mere seconds, will elevate your look and will actually make you feel cooler.¬†

There are but 3 easy steps. 1.Pick up some vintage silk scarves. 2.Gather your hair into some semblance of a bun. 3.Tie the scarf around the bun. There you have it!

Ladies with cropped hair can do the scarf thing, too, minus the bun.

Now get yourself a cold beverage, one thats not too sweet. Right now I’m enjoying ¬†Passion Fruit tea from Tazo, iced. It’s like an updated version of the classic hippie Zinger teas but less pucker inducing. A chilled La Croix is alway nice, too. I like the Pamplemouse, which is apparently French for grapefruit, and not only for the name.

Add a paper fan from the Asian market and you’re good to go.

Here’s that scarf-plus-bun combo in action:

You can wrap the scarf around the bun or around your head to hold back the strays.

Stay vintage. Stay cool.

I am a vintage clothing shop owner living and working in rural north Florida. I believe in adding a little vinegar and molasses to my greens, having my coffee outside whenever possible, and mixing something vintage into every room and every outfit.
