Autumn Must Have Number 2 - A Great Scarf

Next on the Autumn Must Have list is a GREAT scarf! My favourite fashion item clearly as I appear to have accumulated what looks like about 200 of them. 
Do I really need to sell this one to you? A scarf really lifts an outfit, when worn the right way it disguises mummy tummy AND it keeps you warm. What's not to love? Here are just 5 favourites that will see you through this autumn..
Colour Block - Next - £12.50
Marks & Spencer Collection - £25
Zebra Print - Mint Velvet - £35
Blue Falling Leaves - Wallis - £11
Stars - Scarf Envy - £35
Kookai - £8
And for inspiration on how to tie your scarf, check out this fab video from Mint Velvet:
Full competition details will come on a separate post...but for now, get your cameras out and take a photo of your School Gate Style. What did you wear on the school run today? Email them to schoolgatestyle@yahoo.co.uk or tweet/Facebook them with #schoolgatestyle and I'll draw one at random to win some Neal's Yard goodies! 
This is not a style competition - there's no judging on School Gate Style - just sharing and inspiring - so I'll be sharing a selection of the pictures on the blog when I announce the winner. Closing date is Friday 14th September. 
Join me tomorrow for Autumn's Must Have Number 3 - have a great day!

  2. Since reading your blog I have purchased several scarves and get complimented when I wear them! Currently hunting for the scarf Mel Giedroyc wore on last week GBBO but sadly can't find it anywhere.

  3. Couldn't agree more, so glad I have my Louis Vuitton leopard one. Only problem is nothing else matches up and I just want to wear that one constantly for about the last three years!

  5. Flip!! I almost took a photo of my school gate style yesterday at the school .. Let's say it was style and not fashion !! I'll dress up again and take a photo. I love the blue falling leaves scarf. I also saw a lovely blue scarf with coloured sculls on it in Callan a few weeks ago. Im tempted To go back to see if it's Still there.

  7. Couldn't agree more - scarves are a great wardrobe staple and an easy way to update a look. But then I am rather biased ;)

    Have to say, I love that Mint Velvet one.

    1. Shanna, I love Wendy's video too and have shared it before on the blog...it's got even more ways to tied the scarf! Why do I always do it the same I'm wondering?! Avril x

  16. I also love the mint velvet zebra one and would totally recommend watching the Wendy's Lookbook video - not just because it's great to see all the different ways to wear a scarf but also because it's what gave her blog a meteoric rise to fame in only 1 year - pretty incredible stuff.

    1. Hi Wendy...I love those photos you posted today - I'd love to meet Mark Heyes so I'm v envious!
      I've posted to Wendy's Lookbook video before - it's brilliant. I didn't realise that was what made her blog so successful..just assumed she'd been going for years! Inspirational stuff. We'll get there soon...you're one step ahead with the photographic other half...I need to train my man up! xx

  17. I am a scarf addict so loved this post!! I actually have one that looks like the blue star scarf, but it a trendy scandinavian design make. During winter I wear a scarf at least 5 times a week and am always on the look out for a new one. I think the Next one may be in my future!
