Same... but Different




Dress (Banana Republic Outlet); Scarf (Calvin Klein find at Marshalls);
Shoes (Target); Earrings (Nordstrom)

I recently found this bright lime scarf at Marshalls and thought it was perfect for Spring/Summer... and I also thought it would be a great contrast to the color blue.  And then I got a serious case of deja vu.  I have a very similar scarf, and had created a very similar color combo (original post here).  One could argue that the scarves are a different color and pattern = but the truth is I basically just bought the same scarf.  But it's okay - it makes the 10 shades of the same lip gloss color I own seem a bit less crazy :)

Lol, now I see where you got the idea to pair a scarf with my jumpsuit! Love both scarves, and if they were both a good deal, then even better! I'm loving the green with the blue, beautiful color combo.

I love the scarf! Such a pretty color. :)
And I do the same thing all the time; I find something I like, and then all I buy is more like what I already have.

Alyssa said...

I do this constantly too! Hey, look at it this way–at least you know what you like and stick to it! :)

Bethie The Boo said...

I've totally done this! Sometimes it's with t-shirts, I'll buy something in a very similar shade to something else I already have. Oh well, if it works, you should go with it! The more the merrier!

Rachel Lynne said...

OH! I love the scarf :) I was just at Marshalls last week and they have way toooooooo much awesome stuff! Love your dress too :)

Agnes Mayer said...

LOVE the scarf dress combo especially! So pretty!

Rachel said...

haha I always buy items similar to ones I already have, whether it's clothing or makeup. Oops! Love the bright scarf here!

Michael said...

No, no. They're both different which completely justifies buying the 2nd one :)

Sam said...

I am loving the gorgeous zesty hue of your scarf, what a pretty vibrant piece to accessorized with, both looks are incredibly chic, the first is my fav

Allyssa said...

They're totally different! So owning both is definitely acceptable!

Jen ♥ said...

Hey, when you find something that works - why not?! This is a great color combo & I love both scarves!

Maricel Edwards said...

And now I must study your pictures closely to see how you managed to make that fluffy scarf still look weather appropriate with that summer dress. It's a look I've been trying to perfect but can't seem to master (watch out for tomorrow's post on some commentary on that). I always feel incongruous and I think it's coz I don't wrap the scarf properly.

Sigh.

Anyhow, you look fab today, as usual. That color combo is to die for!

(And thanks for the follow on my blog; that really means a lot since I've just started out and you are a well-respected seasoned veteran of the bloggerverse.)

P.S. I added you to my Fashionista links; I hope you don't mind. :)

Buying two of the same scarf doesn't seem very thrify of you. Also, those pics seemed to be oddly cropped - where's that beautiful face? :)

Maricel Edwards said...

Ahahahaha! I mixed you up with Carly over on Style Snapshot! [face palm] But thaks for commenting on my blog and please don't feel obligated to follow me now that I mentioned it. ;p You're still an ace fashionista in my book.

Elana said...

This scarf is so fun! You can never have too much a good thing, right?

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

oh Heather! You are so funny. I have been trying to shop my closet more instead of buying more things. It is ok if we have similar looks from similar items. You look darling!!!!!!!!!!

I am very guilty of doing the same exact thing - but I love your new scarf, I would not have been able to resist either!

Haha isn't it funny how we subconsciously do things like this? Either way, it's a great scarf that I bet you will get a lot of use out of.

Love the scarf! Similar or not, I think it's a great addition to your wardrobe because it'll always be an eye-catching accessory. :)

A girl after my own heart- I get hooked on a color or print and buy it up over and over again (hence my collection of 300 striped tees + tanks!).

You look great- love the lime color! Very summer.

I love the bright yellow and blue combo. And both scarves are awesome. Who cares if they are similar? I am sure you will wear both a lot!

Karen Curtis said...

LOL! This is funny...mainly b/c I do the same thing. I have a friend that goes shopping with me and reminds me when I am about to purchase something I have in my wardrobe already.

I like both scarves and you look cute!
