Let’s wrap this up…

Wrap it up

So. It’s August. Scarves are seemingly what we need. I’m never knowingly under layered… and if I get cold I get grumpy. 

I’m not talking wool scarves: their time will come… just something light weight that can oooh-up an outfit & mean drafts are excluded.

Other than the (inevitable?) storage issue I do love being able to have a scarf-bank to quite literally pull on.

It took me a while to realise that it was worth (at times) spending more on some accessories as they can transform and make a simple outfit feel that bit more ‘now/relevant’.

I’ve just taken advantage of Hush’s last sale bits and ordered the small star scarf (now £4.00)… inspired by the website photo it will adorn my (now tired, ah) black leather hand bag to just spice it up a bit and eeeek out its existence a little longer.

 

The other scarf I ordered was the Jana scarf in pink.., this will serve me well on holiday as a cover up, burny-shoulder-protector and then take me into autumn too with a khaki jacket. Saving me the bothersome need of buying a new khaki jacket. A new scarf was all I needed. Who knew?

Since its arrived I just love the colours – brighter than the photos on the website show, can’t wait to wear it. Though trying desperately hard to wait another whole 7 days until we go on holiday.1422x2040.fit.SCA9-WPM-02 hush £12, was 45

Blue stripes from hush again, £12.00, was £45.00.

Gap have a similar feel version in blues (£9.99 in the sale); I think these type of scarves get better with wearing & washing (and not too much ironing, though granted, that might just be my laziness).

Back to hush, (£30.00, was £65.00) love the aztec-ness of this one… not sure why I didn’t order this one to ring the changes from the stripes…

Moving to a more light cotton or voile feel that perhaps feel slightly smarter and less summery per-se… stripes in silk, from M&S, £25.00.

Conversational bird print scarf, M&S £15.00

In more traditional tones, animal/spot print with border design in silk from M&S, £25.00.

Some easy florals perfect to layer on, brighten a darker outfit but not shout… Next, £16.00.

Also from Next, £16.00 in navy.

This one from Monsoon, £25.00, ticks a lot of boxes for me with a 70’s sort of feel… I’d want wide flair jeans and block heels to go with. Love the floral and spot combo.

Floral skinny scarf from Monsoon as well, £19.00, navy ground.

Ditzy flower from Mango, £6.99, love this with the pale coat. (Note to self, must be braver with colours of coat… not just black, or navy).
