Scarf Top

Hey lovers! We've been experiencing a heatwave the past two days, and ladies in more exotic countries can probably testify for the fact that getting dressed and looking stylish is VERY hard when you feel like your face is melting off.

I basically walked around in my underwear the entire day since I was at home anyway, but I needed to go out at SOME point to do some grocery shopping. This is what I ended up wearing: my palmtree/busstop printed skirt, and a scarf I recently bought as a top. I just tied it around my chest with the knot in front et voila, a fun bandeau top!


Of course I wore a strapless bra underneath to give things some more shape and stability, haha. Whenever I wear pink, I feel like I'm really giving my Katy Perry resemblance a free pass. This is totally something Katy would wear, with a shorter skirt and more boobs probably. But the vibe is really Katy-esque, no? A bit like a grown up, vintage inspired Barbie doll! Makes me want to sing songs about how (California) girls just want to have fun ;-)

scarf worn as top, skirt: T2 vintage
wedges: Sac d'anvers
hat: I am
sunnies: H&M

  6. Very cute, love the scarf you use as top, lovely colour and feel. Unbelievable that you have a heat wave over at Belgium, it had to happen the year I leave of course! :P
    Here's super hot, and yes, the "underwear whilst at home" look is being very much the look of my entire week!

  12. You look so wonderfully summery in this outfit! I never would have thought of wearing a scarf as a top, but you rock it! I love the hat and the high-waisted skirt too. Such a pretty, vintage summer look

  14. This outfit is so much fun! I cannot even tell that scarf IS a scarf...maybe partly because you are wearing a bra and it definitely does look like a bandeau. The tied-up bow in the front adds a very cute touch which you can't really find in many bandeaus.

  15. what a beautiful skirt, you always look so retro feminine in long skirts! what a great idea using a scarf as a top, never would have though of that, great job!

  16. It's so cool that you turned a scarf into a top! I really like all the pastel/candy colors going on here.

  17. Funnily enough, we've got rain today after days of it being super hot and sunny. :P

    I never would have thought to wear a scarf as a bandeau top like that, and I don't know that I'd be brave enough (or confident enough in my scarf tying skills) to do so! It looks really great though, especially with the high-waisted skirt to balance it out.

  18. It's sooooo hard to dress when your face is melting off, you got that right!! And my job is about to take me out in the heat for about 6 hours a day. Blegh.

  19. Heeeel mooi die sjaal als top! Katy Perry zou het inderdaad ook dragen :). Ik ga vanavond toch niet komen want morgen vertrek ik naar Rock Werchter en net zoal altijd zijn mijn voorbereidingen nog niet klaar :). Heel veel plezier in ieder geval!!

  20. You are being so much more stylish than me in the heat! I've been living in a play suit. Ran into my flatmate on the street who said "you look like you're going to the beach." I guess you also kind of look like you're going to the beach, but a much more stylish beach! I also is liking your sunglasses. ; )

  21. nu je het zegt zie ik die Katy Perry gelijkenis ook :)
    het was inderdaad een dag om te smelten, maar lijkt me geen probleem in deze heerlijk luchtige outfit

  22. I LOVE the bandeau top!! It's like the literal version or something :D anyhow: you rock this outfit!!

    Superchic!

  23. Super cute and summery! I'd never be brave enough to show that much skin though haha... There's something about my shoulders and collar bone area being bare that makes me feel all-over naked. Your new hat fits in perfectly.

  24. oh that is what you wear best! big flirty skirts with a lot of movement. the pale bright colors look amazing, love your top! if i would do this, it would be a bad idea but it looks smashing on you. still in love with the hat! go summer girl, make my day even more brighter

  27. Haha, die top/sjaal is een suuuperleuk idee! Moet ik ook eens proberen!
    En op die 4e foto ben je echt een babe! Mooi...

  28. You are SO gorgeous. I covet that skirt. And your clear skin (especially with all the freckles!) It's been forecasted that we're going to get a little bit of a heat wave over here as well, which will be nice. Considering that where I live, it's more likely to rain than it is to sunshine.

    Someone once told me that I looked like Katy Perry when I had short hair. I didn't see it. You, on the other hand, DO look a bit like her. You're gorgeous.

  29. Oh, yes, you do look like Katy Perry, especially in the first pic! Now the only thing u have to do is to dye ur hair black and make big money as an impersonator. I'll gladly be your manager ;)
