I am officially back now after those seemingly endless weeks of finals that drained the sleep, joy and energy out of me! 😅 As I bid farewell to exams, I get to reunite with my closet and finally have a normal sleep cycle! Let’s kick off today’s ‘Micro thought, Macro Shot’ on a happy note then shall we 😉
The micro thought that inspired this look is my curiosity of how people can pull off neck scarves. I have never tried these before but I’ve always been intrigued by them. So I experimented with them this weekend, for a wedding I had to attend, and now I am obsessed. Rainy season is almost here where I am right now, so I figured I’d get the most of the sun left this season.For the macro shot, I paired this purple dress with a white and purple floral Mario Valentino scarf and added pointy cat heeled cream flats to complete the look.
The dress alone would have been quite basic, so as I knotted the neck scarf I was able to add some sophistication to the look. I guess in the winter or more colder days I could mix and match this dress with a turtleneck and thigh high boots. However, that would mean
I’d have to get rid off the scarf, so perhaps I could pair it with a super long trench coat instead and keep the scarf 😂 I’ll update you guys if I ever try that out.
Since it was also my first time with neck scarves, I refrained from accessorizing heavily.
In terms of accessories, I stuck with a simple purple ring. I thought adding long earrings would have clashed with the scarf. Though thinking back on it, I could have worn stud earrings, that wouldn’t have clashed or taken the attention away from the scarf.
Overall though, wearing the neck scarf was an interesting experience. You can tie them into all sorts of knots. You can adjust the looseness/fastness to your liking. And you can use any material or length of your preference. For colder days you could opt for warmer ones whereas for warmer days you could opt for lightweight ones such as silk.
I have to say, I am definitely going to be adding more of these neck scarves to my closet. I cannot wait to experiment with more of these and add knots of sophistication to future outfits I style.
What are your thoughts on these neck scarves? Do you have intentions of
trying these neck scarves or are you already a regular wearer of these? Share your thoughts in the comments below, I’d love to hear them!

The title of today's post may or may not explain my absence, but sincere apologies for my absence! 🙈I’ve got finals coming up (they actually started today) and the past few weeks I’ve been occupied with studying - and all the tons of stress that comes with studying- so I haven’t been able to create content for you guys. Bear with me for a few more days and I’ll be back with fun content, trust me I’ve got some fun things in store for you guys. However, till then I won’t be around much but I’ve managed to find time amidst my study breaks to create my monthly faves segment: this, these and that.
This look (sweats plus a shirt) has been my go to while studying. I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t study in posh clothes. I tend to get distracted easily so if I wore anything fancy or even close to fancy I’d end up distracting myself with the embroidery or playing with the buttons and all instead of studying. Don’t judge me, even the roof is interesting to stare at when we’re stuck studying for hours. I could always stay in my PJs but that would also distract me since I’d be thinking about my bed and sleeping the entire time 😂So that’s why I opt for sweats for times like these. When I said nothing fancy, I didn’t mean all dull colors though…that’s just depressing... so with dark/dull sweats I always throw on a bright shirt on top and vice versa. This specific sweat and shirt combo had the right amount of color, sparkles and graphics. Not too dull and not too distracting.
These fluffy slippers I’ve had for a while and they're the comfiest thing in the world, and also how cute are they?! It’s my all time fave couple that I ‘ship: Minnie and Mickey! These slippers were able to make it onto this month’s faves list after I realized they actually have another purpose other than being comfortable and cute. I’ve never danced in them before but this month I realized they’re also super comfy to dance in
during study breaks without making you fall. Usually other slippers like these make me fall real quick even if I attempt to walk fast in them let alone allow me to dance in them. So after discovering that these slippers are multi-purpose, they came onto my monthly
Stress levels were super high due to all the studying, so dance breaks were a must everyday! That one artist that let me dance my hopeless heart out while cursing out all my daunting study sessions was BAYNK. It’s literally impossible not to jump around crazily and invent crazy moves to his songs😌 If you guys have any song recommendations/ artists to jam to during study breaks or stressful periods, don’t hesitate to leave them down below in the comments! 🎶
If any of you have finals starting this week or the next, good luck! We shall all get through them! They’ll all be over in no time( fingers crossed) and as Dory says, “ Just Keep Swimming”
