buy a scarf, educate a girl
We love this fresh fall take on the Esther Shawl. To add some extra dimension to an outfit, try layering a thin turtleneck under a shawl. (Bonus points for double draping hemlines!) This is a super way to stay warm and here the look is edged up with leather-look pants. The Shawl adds great flow and movement to the outfit, which is perfect for your fall photos and Friday nights out. Keep the accessories simple with this one and you've got a stunning #ootd.
Happy Friday! Here's some weekend styling inspiration perfect for anything you have planned. We love these two totally perfect ways to wear the Abigail pattern. Dress up your shawl with a killer mini and classic suede booties. Add some over-the-knee socks or sweet sweater tights if it's super chilly where you are, and you'll have the perfect outfit for your Saturday dinner reservation or Sunday brunch with your girls. If you're feeling a bit more casual we love the infinity scarf with a dolman sleeved top and a pair of dark wash skinnies. Whether these looks take you to a corn maze or to your favorite nightcap spot, the Abigail pattern puts some punch in your look.
Take Kelly's outfit as serious style-inspo and dress up a graphic tee with a scarf and peep toe booties. Throw on a light top layer and you're good to go for a warmer fall climate. If the weather is cooler where you are swap the peep-toes for a more substantial pair and the graphic tee for a toasty sweater.
Kelly interviewed co-founder of Bené, Michelle Blue over on her blog. Our favorite snippet from the post is Michelle's advice for all the dreamers out there:
"You have to let go of your fears and inhibitions and just go for it. If you are gripped by an idea go for it, you don’t want to live with regrets and question what could have happened. Be sure to prepare yourself by researching your field, gaining experience and getting great mentors but at some point you just have to start. You will never feel like you know enough, have enough money or is the perfect time...and truthfully you never will."
