The 90's Called... They Want their Bandana's Back!

Off the shoulder shirt? Check. Bandana scarf? Check. Totally feeling my outfit? Check!

I know I know, yet another post with my shoulders out... What are we gonna do? It's got to the point where I told my mum I got a new top and she literally said "don't tell me it's another off the shoulder top". Yes, I'm getting that predictable. But let's be real (and feel free to tell me if I'm wrong) off the shoulder shirts really are the best things since sliced bread!

Moving on - because you've all probably had enough of me babbling on about my (deep) love for 'off the shoulder' shirts, let's focus our attention on the other very on trend item I'm currently accessorising with. 

The 'Bandana Scarf'

When they say fashion work in circles they really aren't lying, exhibit A; The Bandana's have made a global return from the 90's - and I ain't complaining. In fact, I'm embracing it in every shape and form, you know; tied around my neck, around my head, around my bag... you get the picture. It's almost like...

..."an outfit is never really complete until you tie a bandana scarf somewhere..." - Maija Lily, 2016 (you can quote me on that!) haha.

The point is, I bloody love bandana's at the moment. You know, almost as much as I love 'off the shoulder' shirts *rolls eyes* (that's funny because I'm making fun of myself). 

The best thing about this whole 'back to bandana's' trend is that it is really making it easy to totally transform an outfit; whilst looking so cool girl chic (if I may say so my self). 

Back to the shirt (you know the one) because we need to talk about this gorgeous open back! If I hadn't already loved the shirt enough before knowing about the back detailing, I fell even more in love with it after trying it on and discovering the very flattering 'cross-over' open back. 


And of course it wouldn't be me if I didn't mention my red espadrilles that, at the moment, have quite literally been glued to my feet! And again, it wouldn't be a 'Maija outfit' if I didn't colour co-odinate something, hence the shoes and scarf...

Shirt - Topshop
Jeans - Topshop (old) (similar)
Bandana - Zara
Shoes - Topshop (and now on sale!!)
Bag - Balenciaga (similar)

Have you been embracing these recent trends as much as I (clearly) have? 

Side note: Who else is dying for all the new season autumn clothes!!? I know I'll regret what I'm about to say when it's below 0'c, but I really can't wait for coats and boots!!

Hope you're all having a lovely summer!

Oh, and make sure to follow me on instagram to see what I'm up to!
