How to: Wear your scarf as a vest

Happy Wednesday to all my fashion friends!

As a new part of this blog, I would like to start showing you ideas on how easy it is to update your wardrobe using items you already have in your closet.

In 6 easy steps, you will easily be able to transform your favorite scarf into a new vest!

Side note: I don't take credit for this idea.
While out shopping yesterday I met a woman who, with a lot of patience, explained many ways to convert a scarf into fun and useful clothing styles. In fact, she gathered quite a large crowd of onlookers all eager themselves to also learn how to do this.

I hope you enjoy!

Step 1: Open up scarf completely.

Step 2: Fold scarf in half, like a hamburger bun, not a hot dog bun.

Step 3: Grab scarf by top two corners. 
(They should be the ones in your hand when you are finished folding your scarf in step 2)
One should be a folded end, and the other where the two edges of your original fold came together. 
(I separated the scarf on the left side so you can see what I mean)

Step 4: Tie two ends from step 3 together to form a knot.

Step 5: Open the scarf so you have the 2 large arm loops showing.

Step 6: Put arms through the arm holes and voila!

This is how it should look in the back.

I hope you all enjoyed this simple and easy tutorial. If there is anything you are confused on, just ask and I will be happy to answer any and all questions! Have a great day!
