Coral, Navy, Gray + Faux Bun

This new top is now one of my favorites.  It's simple, but is made of a slinky fabric I like and feels good to wear against my skin.  It has a tiny elastic around the waist with a tie.  I normally do not like that type of elasticized waistband on me, but this is an exception.

I wore it with my navy waterfall cardigan and navy sandals.  I'll be glad when we have a few days warm enough to wear it without the cardigan...but we don't get a whole lot of those.

My hair is no longer long enough to create a big "messy bun" so I wrapped a scarf up into it to make a faux bun.  I quite liked it and will look for other scarves in my collection to do this hairstyle with again.  This scarf was in a different pattern, but had the same color palette as the rest of my outfit with navy and coral colors.

Linking up with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday.

  9. You little print mixing diva, you! Excellent outfit, and I see what you mean about the tie at the waist ... it's right at the base of the V shapes, and becomes a design element as well as a waist defining element. Me too ... I love slinky fabric! You look darling, as usual!

    1. Hi, Lana! I didn't expect to like this top as much as I do. I'll be wearing it with my black cardigan and black pants someday too.

  12. Hi Lisa, nice to see you again!! I guess I must be missing the blogging connections because I'm back on. May not be posting quite as often but it sure is fun.
    You are looking very slender and stylish. I love that top in the first photo. Are you still working on cleaning out your dressing room?? ;)

    1. Hi! I'm sorry I'm just now seeing your question. I first put my hair in a sort of low ponytail. Then I folded the scarf to about 3 inches wide, but left it long. Starting from the underneath side of ponytail I wrapped it upwards around the pony and tied it tight, then wrapped it back down and tied underneath. I then just continued randomly wrapping it around until I came to the ends of the scarf then tied the end. I used a couple of bobby pins to hold the scarf in place in areas it seemed to be slipping. This was the first time I'd tried it and didn't really know what I was doing. I just wrapped and pinned till it looked the way I wanted and stayed put.
