I love a good messy bun. Who can argue with a stylish way to have a bad hair day? In this case I also used it to keep me from looking too uptight with my silk scarf and fitted embellished sweater. Before I added the scarf, as you can imagine, this outfit was pretty bland. Then pow! Add a little contrast and a little flair, oh the power of accessories! I blame moments like this for my excessive hoarding of fabric scraps. You just never know when a little scrap will end up as the finishing touch on an outfit.
