In my mind, this look has all of the makings of a pirate outfit. Bandit scarf? Check. Sturdy boots? Check. Nautical stripes? Check. Mustard tights? …So maybe this outfit doesn’t actually make me look like a pirate, but I definitely felt like I was dressed as one all day.
I’ve actually had this scarf since I was a freshman in college and I’ve literally never worn it. I mean, I’ve tried, but I never made it out of the house because I felt like an aviation-obsessed bandit with a secret to hide but a good heart. Then I saw Sara over on Swing the Day Away style a vintage square scarf and look utterly precious, so I was inspired to try again.
Next time I wear this outfit, I think I’ll nix the bright tights. My navy tights are out of commission (see: giant thigh hole) and yellow was the next best option. I think they distract from the look of the top half and the color scheme. Maybe I’ll try again later with bare legs under the skirt or with jeans.
So what do you think? Stylish pirate? Bandit with a secret? Utterly precious?
