I heart scarves!

I did a Friday post on scarf love (Fridays here on the blog are all about the things I l-o-v-e) back in October. If you want to read it, it's right here! But here we go again because Missus Smarty Pants (the Flylady's style sidekick) mentioned how important they are on her radio show on Tuesday. (Tee hee, Leslie, thanks for indulging my addiction!)

I told her I had bought a new scarf that very day. She asked for a picture and I said I would post one. I realised when I took the photo that - oh my goodness - I've bought not just one, but three (count 'em) new scarves in the last couple of weeks. Yikes, they're multiplying! :)

Here's the one I bought on Tuesday...silk, patterned with fringes, in pink, purple and yellow. I wore it with the yellow cardi on Wednesday, folded in a triangle and with the big triangle hanging down at the front (or bib style, as Leslie calls it).




Here's a big cotton one (could double as a sarong) which goes with all my coral, orange and pink tops. I wear this one swathed around my neck a few times. Good for keeping me warm in these (never-ending) freezing Danish winter temperatures and makes my 'fronts' look full! ;)




Same scarf, same clothes, different angle. The orange waistcoat (Samsøe + Samsøe) I bought recently (isn't it a great happy colour?). The pink fitted cardi (Oasis) I've had for over 15 years. Love the fit, love the colour. Have worn it, washed it, worn it, washed it, for years. Takes me everywhere. I will seriously need therapy if anything ever happens to it! ;)




And, the last one for today...a long, fine-knit woollen, coral/orange scarf. I bought the matching batwing cardi (Bruuns Bazaar) before Christmas (it's also great for wearing over dressy evening tops). The pushy sales assistant wanted me to buy the matching scarf but I wasn't convinced. Until, of course, I saw it reduced to half-price in the January sales...


Funnily enough, I'm actually using the scarf on it's own on a daily basis right now as it's extremely warm and brightens up my black winter trenchcoat...


And whaddayaknow...now DD7 wants to get in on the act! Here she is today, Friday, wearing her - first - very own scarf (kids' range at H + M) [please excuse me for a moment, I need to wipe away a small Mum tear...]



When we got to school and she was changing into her slippers she said, "Mummy, I want to have lots of scarves like you." Aww, that's my girl! ;)




Hope you all have a fabulously fashionable Friday! :)

You've styled them wonderfully Diane! I'm all for happy colours!

I've only worn scarves recently for warmth not fashion, though I do choose them to match the outerwear. I think after Leslie's push I will take a look at what's available around here.

How do you take such beautiful photos?

You look cute in the red scarf...if you find it moves around on your neck...take the longer end and loop it through the neck part. It will create a nice look and stay in place all day.

Your pretty pictures make me want to go and shop for more scarves to add to my collection!

Hi again Jennifer!

I just use my phone to snap pictures - they're not always great quality but it's the surest/ fastest way for me to upload them! :)
