The Scarf I Stole Today..

I've actually started dreaming about scarves after a week sourcing, photographing, counting and posting them. But on the upside I get to feature one each day - I'm calling it 'The Scarf I Stole Today'!

Starting with today's one - which literally just arrived in the shop. The Rebellion Aztec in Orange. It's the orange version of the blue/coral one that has sold out a couple of times this week and I'm loving it for brightening up the misery of 7 degrees in May (almost June).
Wearing with the same outfit I wore on this post 2 months ago. Striped top from Tesco, skinny jeans from French Connection, navy boots from M&S and my endlessly useful Target Dry Emily parka.
Such a pain to be back into wintery clothes again. I had to hunt down the ankle boots this morning from the top of the wardrobe.
Yesterday was a bit nicer with sunshine so I wore my H&M white jeans with another of my scarf shop favourites, the Teal Escape Scarf.
White Jeans - H&M
White Long Line Vest - Kaleidoscope
Green Jersey Cardigan - Room 31 (similar herehere)
Patent Pumps - M&S Footglove (winter sale - similar)
Scarf - School Gate Scarves!
I love how it transforms a plain outfit of jeans, jersey cardigan and necklace into something way more stylish. And I'm so pleased to have another excuse to wear this teal colour as it's not one I wear enough. 
As I type, I'm wearing a hoody over my outfit from earlier and furry boots. Le sigh. Thank goodness for wine and Kettle crisps!
I'm off to the Banbridge outlets for a bit of LK Bennett love tomorrow. They are opening another pop-up shop on Saturday with up to 90% off over the Bank Holiday weekend. I'll check it out for you at this preview event and report back :) x

  1. Up to 90% off - wow. That's dangerous.

    And the Teal Escape scarf looks fab - I like the predominantly white background - makes it so spring like.

    1. Yes- it's one of my favourites. I always think a scarf with white in it is a great buy so I've purposely picked a couple with white backgrounds! x

  2. Gorgeous! I was admiring the new stock earlier - some stunning colors! There are at least 4 I want! Might have to make a small purchase when I'm back in June! It's Memorial Day here on Monday so we have a weekend at the pool planned;)

  9. Hello Avril from a cold + chilly + windy Warwickshire! Both my daughter + I love scarves - they can so brighten up a dull outfit! My daughter bought one the other weekend when we popped down to the Cotswolds for the day and then lo and behold, we saw the very same ones up in Edinburgh last weekend!
    Hoping for some warmer weather very soon.....

    1. Me too Ellen! It's been so chilly lately. And yes, my scarves come from Scotland so I'm not surprised you saw them in a store in Edinburgh! In an equally lovely store I'm sure?! x
