treading that fine line

     I had so much fun wearing my printed chiffon scarf that I couldn't resist picking up a new one at Ross. It didn't have any tag, so I was a bit nervous about the price, but it came out to a whopping $5.99.
     Good thing about this scarf: it has more volume than my thin chiffon scarf.
     Problematic thing about this scarf: see above.
     I tried wearing it simply draped around my neck, but it reaches my knees. I took this first photo earlier, so it shows me wearing it in an infinity tie, with the blazer over it to cut down on the poof.
     But when I actually wore this outfit (second photo), I did some major twisting. I might try the simple drape with a longer black blazer (and heels for some height wouldn't hurt either).

       After wearing this, I'm wondering whether the scarf and stripes are too much at once. There's a fine line between playful juxtaposition and overload.
