Rainbow & Grey

When I saw today's scarf in the window of a gorgeous shop called Uneeka in Truro last week, I knew it would be perfect. It's got grey as a base so that fits with a lot of my wardrobe but the rainbow of other colours really lifts a neutral outfit and at just £8.99, it was a bargain too! Here I am wearing it today on a day trip with the kids..
Getting the School Gate Style scarf tie re-arranged to show off the gorgeous colours!
Unfortunately, you can't buy the scarf in the Uneeka online store nor can I find another similar one online anywhere else. There were a couple left in the store so it might be worth phoning to ask. The girls in the shop were so friendly - I'm sure they would do their best to help. Tell them School Gate Style sent you! Oh and they have a Facebook page too - give them a like on this link.
I wore the scarf with H&M Bootcut Jeans, a Room 31 Grey swing jacket (both last seen here), Kurt Geiger cross body bag (last seen here) & my grey converse copies (seen here).
Doesn't it brighten up the grey and denim well? I'm going to wear this scarf so much - am looking forward to mixing it with bright green or yellow tops, which normally wouldn't really suit me but the grey in the scarf will tone down the brights and make them more wearable. 
Leaving you with an out-take from today...loved this yellow background but was busy yakking to my mother in law when the photo was being taken #photofail :)
The Room31 competition winner will be announced tomorrow! Watch this space x

  2. Lovely scarf. I almost bought a scarf today . It was a real wrench to leave it, in a chemist in Callan of all places. I'll be back though. We definitely have a scarf obsession in our family. Your one is a great combination of colours. Goes with so many outfits .
