THE BANDANA BOW TIE

how to wear the bandana trend, off the shoulder stripe dress on blonde blogger at sunset in front of pink flowers

Dress - Garage (old) - Love THIS and THIS option
Bandana - Vintage
Purse - Prada (see my review on the purse HERE)
Shoes - H&M

Ok, so this outfit is a little out of season. Or maybe a lot out of season.  No way could I be out and about with bare legs and shoulders this far into fall.  We took these pictures quite a while ago, and I almost didn't bother posting them but I figured what the heck! Not everyone is stuck in the freezing cold rain like me, haha! If you're lucky enough to be somewhere lovely and warm, I hope this offers some sort of inspiration :)

The bandana trend really took off this summer. And I really embraced it. I ended up buying three of them - black, white and red. I really love the way they spice up any outfit!  And there is so many ways to wear them! I wore them on my purse (which you may have seen on my Instagram HERE), on my wrist, on my neck - endless options.  

Worn with this super simple dress was probably one of my favourite combination. I don't really wear very much jewellery so the bandana kind of acts like jewellery. It makes an already super feminine outfit, even more feminine.

I actually remember picking this dress the day we took these pictures because it is SUPER stretchy.  We were heading to an Indian feast, so I wanted to make sure I was going to have plenty of room for a food baby :)

What are your feelings on the bandana, yay or nay?
