I’m fairly certain we are all aware of my love for a silk neck scarf but if not I encourage everyone to get on board. They are the perfect way to dress up any outfit especially when it is full of neutrals! Most of my scarf collection comes from my mother’s closet but I recently discovered Terracotta NY and am obsessed. Their line of silk scarves are larger than most vintage finds and which allow me to tie them in a million different ways!

I am usually a girl of black, whites & neutrals but I loved this scarf as soon as I set eyes on it! It is literally the perfect pop of color and I loved the quirky yet refined design. Since it’s a large square I definitely plan on wearing it in my hair over the summer for beach days. Most of the scarves I have are vintage, from India and very small. I loved that this scarf was so large I could wrap it and tie it so many ways! Pair it with loafers and a stripe tee and you are French style perfection.

Everyone ties their neck scarf different ways (especially blanket scarf’s just search you tube!) but I think Silk ones are a touch easier. If shorter I just tie to the front in a small knot leaving two short edges. If longer like this one I usually wrap it a few time and knot it to the front or you can tie it in a large bow (a bit more preppy than me) but still absolutely adorable!

Lucky for you Terracotta NY is kind enough to GIVEAWAY the Cary Crab black & grey scarf away to one reader! I can not tell you how much you will use this neck scarf and I love that these colors will go with anything. Just leave a comment below and let me know how you would style it and the winner will be announced next week!

I am headed to happy hour with Trevor tonight since we are officially off Whole 30 and happy to have a drink again. If you guys haven’t ever been to Scofflaw I highly suggest it – we went a few weeks ago for a friend’s birthday and couldn’t drink but loved the atmosphere so decided it would be the perfect place to go back for a drink!

UPDATE: The winner was chosen & is Stephanie A – congrats & thank you to everyone for entering!

    Wait! I want one so bad!! You and Jess have been making me want to try them – but I’m so nervous I won’t be able to rock them as well as you ladies!! I’d ATTEMPT it by styling that scarf with a long sleeved crop top (surprise!) and swingy midi skirt. Is it spring yet?!
