Neckerchiefs, Bandanas or “Little Neck Scarves”

If you have been following me along for a while you may have noticed that over the past year or so, I have become slightly obsessed with wearing little neck scarves, neckerchiefs or bandanas, whatever you want to call them.
My new love all started in this blog post when I finally had the guts to wear a bright red bandana with my white button down to class my freshman year at Wake.
A couple of guy friends made fun of me, but I loved it!
It was a way to give my jewelry box a rest and to wear something different than everyone else.
Since then I’ve bought two more neckerchiefs and put them around my neck, my bags and in my hair.

The one I’m wearing in these photos is a New York themed scarf with pictures of all New York things: hot dogs, taxis, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, etc.
I got this little white and pink one after I bought a Paris themed one in white and navy.
Both of them are from J Crew Factory and were only a couple of dollars!
It’s way cheaper than a new piece of jewelry and in my opinion, more interesting.

I have to give credit to my mom for being the one to inspire my neckerchief obsession.
Back in the day, when I was just starting to get really into clothes, so age 6 (not kidding), my mom told me that I would eventually find my “signature item” in my closet.
For my mom, who went to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and worked in the fashion business before she had my brother and I, she found her signature item to be silk scarves. To this day she is still rocking her silk scarves and I am following in her footsteps.
