Pom Poms & Check


Typically, if someone asked me if I would be open to the idea of wearing a scarf in the middle of July, I would laugh in their face; that would've been up until this past week. I found this pom-pom scarf at Old Navy and knew I had to figure out a way to incorporate it into my summer wardrobe. Luckily, we had a few showers yesterday. It cooled things down immensely and gave me the opportunity to wrap this lightly made scarf around my neck. I must admit, I am 100% smitten by the pom-pom trend even though Ross said my scarf looked like the curtains his grandma had hanging back in the day. Mark my words, I bet she had the most stylish window coverings in town.

Another item I was a little unsure about for Summer months was this Barrington Gifts St. Anne's tote. It's not that I was debating on the tote itself, just the color and pattern. I asked for help on Instagram about a month ago. I could not, for the life of me, decide between the check and stripe patterns. About 90% of you said stripes for the win, but for some reason the brown and black check print kept calling my name. Usually I take advice from the majority, but this time I went against the grain. I must say, I am 100% happy with my decision. I think this pattern is classic and one for all seasons.

If you haven't been to Barrington's website, get ready to spend a good thirty minutes playing and designing. They have the coolest website ever...pick a bag style, pick a color, pick a pattern and add your initials....or not. I am a visual person and need to see exactly how things will look before I make up my mind. Barrington does just that...you can literally design a custom bag exactly the way you want it and BOOM it magically pops up onto your computer screen. 

Not only is their website revolutionary, so are their products. The craftsmanship, leather and designs are exceptional and will see you through waves of fast fashion. I am all about trends and experimenting with the latest styles, but it's important to add key, quality pieces to your closet that you know will be utilized for years to come...this tote is one of my years to come items.

Happy shopping and designing.

AH! Shanna, this outfit is so so so cute! Love the pom pom scarf and the amazing contrast it has with your vest! So feminine, yet chic!

Kristine@thefoleyfam said...

I was one of the ones who voted stripe, but LOVE the checkered seeing it in all it's glory. I've been crushing on Utility Vests for ever now, but don't think I could pull it off. Love how you styled yours!

Amy Western said...

I've not seen much of the Pom Pom trend here in the UK yet. Maybe I've just been walking around with my eyes shut though! I love the scarf, will be keeping my eye out for something similar :)

Porcelina said...

You can never have too many Pom Poms Shanna!! Love that shade lippy on you too. Thanks for hosting! P x

Sarah Enuwa Audu said...

I love the pom pom trend too, I have a shirt with a pom pom detail. Your scarf is lovely.

Hands Down - LOVE that pom pom scarf. I found one yesterday that had tassels and that one is calling my name... I love that bag too - I love anything with my name and idea of a nearly custom carry all with my name on it sounds perfect (plus it looks big enough for baby gear and let me admit that's all I carry in a bag lately.)

I have been wanting to try the all white trend this summer but I have been afraid to do it! I love how you added the vest to break it up a bit! Love the scarf and the bag is perfect too!! I think my daughter has this scarf. I may have to borrow it;) I linked up with a Noonday give away! Have you seen their collection?! I thought of you when I saw their beaded clutches and handbags. They look like something you would carry(: Blessings! Susan

I love wearing scarves in the summer! They are perfect for wiping off sweat when it's blazing outside or wrapping around myself when I walk into a place that it supercold due to the A/C. It's the perfect transitional accessory for summer for me :)

So adorable!!! Love the vest and pom pom scarf combo!

I love it! I'm wearing a scarf today, too :)

Julie said...

I love how the scarf adds a little pop of color to the outfit without being overwhelming. Love all of the white! I'm always too scared to wear a lot of white with my daughter who is a year and a half old. She's really good about rubbing her yucky hands on me. haha!

Inge Jane said...

I really love this look! I'm digging the all white plus the vest and pops of color from the cute pompoms. I haven't been able to bring myself to wear my scarves lately. It's been way too humid!

Erica Zar said...

Love the scarf! Glad you were able to make it work for summer! I am obsessing over that Barrington tote! Love the color and pattern you chose, so classic!

Hope your week is going well!!

Yeah, that scarf is super cute. I haven't worn mine this summer either, but it would be hard to pass this one up. It's fun with your utility jacket her, I just wore mine last night. : )

Rachel said...

I'm definitely on the pompom trend. The scarf is a perfect way to wear it!

Anna Belle said...

I love the pompoms with the very neutral outfit! I've thought that pompoms were a little too girly for me, but you're making me reconsider - love it!

Helene in Between said...

I admit, I wouldn't think to wear a scarf in the summer, but when it has cute little pom poms on it how can you resist?!

Sarah said...

Love love love the scarf! I can never say no to pink and orange!

Kristina said...

I love the scarf!! If it does look like curtains, then those really must have been some cute curtains ;)
