Not-So-Mellow Yellow

Blazer, scarf: thrifted. Tee, jeans, belt: Target. Shoes: Payless. Sunglasses: gifted.

One of my favorite ways to dress up a basic tee and jeans combo is with a blazer.  A tailored black blazer takes the look from casual to chic, while a bright, slouchier version like my yellow blazer gives off a carefree, fun vibe.   I added some pops of bright berry and tied the whole scheme together with a colorful headscarf.  I found this one on a thrift trip and couldn't resist the bright colors and fun print. 

I've mentioned before that I'm trying to expose my peers to the wonders of headscarfs and I think that they are making progress in accepting the look.  I didn't get any Rosie the Riveter comments this time around.  Baby steps.  Next think I know, they'll all be wearing headscarfs, too, right?  Sure.  

On a side note, next Friday is my final review for my architectural studio.  Final review in studio is basically a huge formal presentation of a semester-long project that has to be absolutely perfect.  Needless to say, the next week and a half is gonna be pretty crazy.  My posting is probably going to be a little sporadic, but I'll do my best because I need my daily dose of sanity now more than ever!
