There’s more than one way to think about an investment piece. Yes, it can be a piece that you save for, a big ticket item, a classic. OR, it can be something that you wear, all the time and in more than one way. This scarf? It’s an investment piece, it’s fit to be tied as a top, as a turban, I’ve used it as a purse handle; and believe it or not, this investment piece was an impulse purchase.
This Johnny Was scarf was one of those pieces that caught my eye, but I didn’t think anything of it. I was telling myself that I didn’t wear scarves. Then, I had a friend in town and we made a trip to the Johnny Was store, I couldn’t resist it.
You can see me tie this scarf as a turban here.
So, with the heat and the tassels I had to know if this investment piece could be a top. Turns out it’s fit to be tied.
Real talk? This isn’t the first time I’ve worn a scarf (this scarf) as a top. However, it’s always been over bikinis (anything can be a cover up). Yet, all summer I’ve been thinking about it as a top. The pattern, the tassels, I knew that they could casually make a statement. (Is that a thing? Let’s make it a thing) Most importantly, I was hoping it would be cool.
Turns out? Maybe it’s me, maybe it’s the scarf, or maybe I’m just fit to be tied all the time– I love it!!
I love the way the scarf elevates my chinos. It feels pulled together and whimsical all at the same time. The scarf was perfect for the temps (I’m not sure I can handle weeks of 100+ heat)-though I do recommend having someone to make sure your bra strap stays covered. Of course, you could always go without a bra (that would leave my mom fit to be a lot of things). Either way, I like to think numbers like this are perfect for the end of summer, and if that doesn’t leave you fit to be tied, I don’t know what will!
I’ve linked all sorts of Johnny Was scarves and similar items. I’d love to know–what’s an unexpected investment piece in your closet? How are you beating the heat?
