Les Cargo

Blazer- Banana Republic, Tank- Tennis, Cargos- Forever21, Wedges-, Scarf- Thrifted

This is what the headscarf looked like unfolded-- I wanted to make sure to show you that crazy rabbit pattern (the sole reason I purchased it)! I did a DIY a few months ago on how to sew an elastic turban headband, but there's actually a much easier way to take pretty much any piece of cloth (i.e. sweater tie, those random cloth belts that come with cheap outfits, neck scarves) and turn it in to a great head scarf that stays put! No sewing involved-- there are many tutorials out there, but I particularly like this one from Song of Style.

These days I tend to stay away from anything involving the word "cargo." I remember watching Aaliyah's video for Are You That Somebody back in 6th grade and buying similarly baggy pants-- what looks great in a R&B video doesn't necessarily translate well to school halls! (Try explaining to the principal that, no, your pants aren't falling down, you actually meant to have them hanging half way down your Soffee shorts, which looked like underwear). For this black skinny pair, however, I'll make an exception-- no unwanted bulk and flattering pockets! A win win combination :)
