Two paisley hankies

White skirt Zara - Blue boat neck top Charter Club - Red flats Stradivarius 
Grey circle hand bag vintage Salvatore Ferragamo
A few months ago I picked up several paisley print handkerchieves to wear tied around my neck. I love them, they add color, they are light cotton and have a vintage vibe. Today I thought I'd wear one around my waist as a belt, however either my waist is too big or the handkerchief is too small. Depends how you want to look at it ;) 
So, I figured I'd tie two of them and hide the tiny knot under a wide belt loop in the back and bring them together at the front with a big knot. The idea is quite simple and it makes the look less ordinary don't you think ?

I've seen (and worn!) scarves as belts before but never two tied together like this. It's a lovely look Lorena. The print and colours are so nice against the white skirt.

I will not lie to you first thing I said was "Oh Wow! I love this" I adore how you wore the hankys as belts. I have seen it before but the way you tied it and paired it with the whole look JUST FAB!

¡Hola, Lorena! Me encanta la idea de los dos pañuelos en distinto color anudados a modo de cinturón, me parece un recurso que da mucha vida a cualquier estilismo en colores básicos. ¡Ideal!

Un saludo,

Very good idea, looks fine but sunglasses are too small, without their it would be better.

Long time no see! Love this idea!! These classic handkerchieves are in my shopping list. They are a multipurpose piece.
