does it get any better than a fall day filled with sunshine? or a stroll along the champs-elysées. that is, unless you reside in athens and substitute that paris boulevard for a college campus. no complaints here, because there is something magical about the hallowed sidewalks of a university. but i must admit i do feel quite parisian today with my striped tee, ballet flats, and silk scarf. even my handbag has a quintessential chanel shape.

several weeks ago, i highlighted 10 wardrobe staples i reach for again-and-again. if you missed the post you can read it here. today, three of the items that made the list are put to the test. many of you know i’m a firm believer in making your closet work for you. which is why i favor classic items that can be worn over and over again. but it’s also important to keep your look fresh and modern. one way to do just that is by refreshing a tried-and-true outfit with accessories.

today’s ootd is all about my silk scarf. mr. style bought this beautiful hermes scarf for me years ago while on a business trip. it matches one of my favorite handbags that he also purchased for me. sometimes, i tie the scarf around that gorgeous purse – seen here, and sometimes i belt the scarf around my waist – seen here. but i do love to wear this classic essential in a traditional manner tied around my neck. simple and chic, it just adds that wow factor!

so next time you’re looking for an easy way to refresh your look than put a scarf on it.

happy hump day!
