diamond in the rough

I am packing for a trip that is coming up for me soon (hint: it will be tropical) and I was playing with my scarves and I think I invented this. I am sure I am not the first person to do this but its new to me. A diamond shaped sliver of abdomen shows with this scarf trick, and I think I am 100% okay with that. It seems like such an innocent slice of flesh doesn't it? Solar Plexus. The center. The home of will power and ego (according to my yoga instructor).  Basically what I did was take an extra large scarf, fold it into a large triangle, put it on like a shawl with the long side of the triangle over my shoulders, then took those long ends and tied them behind my back. This made a sort of shrug, right, so then I took a little broach and pinned it closed up front. Vvvvwaaa Lllaaa. Shirt with a peek a boo, egocentric, diamond cutout. (the back just looks like the back of a shawl, but I tied it up into the other knot and made it look nice and slouchy back there, sorry no pics, but I will take some next time.)

All items thrifted.

Hmm, I keep studying this, but I don't think I have any scarves large enough to try this. It works...I at first took it for a blouse blown in the wind. Radiate from the solar plexus.

I absolutely love everything about this look! You are absolutely brilliant with scarves. If I get brave I may have to try this!

Daaaang, Christina, work it out! I am digging the look. Not one I could comfortably do myself, being a happy apple shape at the moment, but I think it's the bees knees on you.

Christina,

You are brilliant. I am so trying this, only with a long shirt underneath...because a giant belly sticking out would be, um...awkward?

You are so creative with your scarves -- I remember you've made tops with them before, but I like this new technique. This would be perfect for a tropical getaway. Love the landscape scenery as always!
