Styling Neck Scarves

Styling Neck Scarves as the Ultimate! Transition! Piece!

Edinburgh has been inordinately warm in FEBRUARY. The winter itself has been incredibly mild. I don’t think it’s ever been colder than -3 celsius. One thing I’ve started doing recently is trying to use accessories to change up my outfits. I have a bit of a capsule wardrobe since I moved with only one suitcase, and I try not to spend on fast fashion. Instead of buying tons of new clothes here, I have little accessories to create more outfit options with what I own. Even when I moved, I brought with me not one, but two neck scarves. One suitcase, two neck scarves. I love them. Styling neck scarves has become important, allow me to share.

My Go-To Travel Outfit | Hiking in Ireland

Function Over Fashion: a minimalist approach to styling while travelling

I am NOT someone who overpacks when they travel. I travel on budget airlines which charge you even for a hand luggage carry on. On my latest adventure to the West coast of Ireland to do some hiking, I packed everything into my small and beloved Lululemon backpack. It fits perfectly under the seat of the airplane. Bear in mind that the trip was four nights, five days, and included city days and countryside hiking days. I needed a LOT of variety when it came to my clothes… Or so you would think. I managed to find basically one outfit that worked under all circumstances. Admittedly I did not look fantastic and chic in the cities, but it was good enough!

PSA: Get Your Clothes Altered

An Old Way to Battle Fast Fashion

I never got my clothes altered growing up. I also wasn’t as much of a consumer then as I am now, and I just wore whatever I had and whatever was given to me as it was. As an adult, I’ve started shopping waaaaay more than I ever thought I would. And, I’ve become aware of how those shopping habits are impacting the planet negatively.

I mostly buy clothes online, so I rarely get to try things on before committing. I’m also a bargain hunter, 90% of the time the stuff I’ve bought is on sale, and non-refundable. Result? I’ve gotten my share of clothes that kind of/sort of fit. At least enough to be wearable, but are nothing like what I’d imagine. I mostly wear them out of guilt for having bought them, and am constantly disappointed at how badly they fit me. So I made the simply choice get getting my clothes altered.
