Linking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday
I brought only one scarf, the Coup de Fouet 90cm also here (where the colours look very different because of how I folded it). As soon as I saw the pattern and colourway, it was love at first sight and it matches/compliments so many colours I wear and all the bags I brought with me – it’s a true marvel! Normally I would have worn just the safari silk blouse and skirt but since I’m having so much fun accessorising and styling this year, added the scarf for an extra dimension. I realised that the outfits I admire most on others are the ones that make me look twice (in a good way!) because there’s something extra to please my senses. That’s what it’s all about aftterall!
There are so many ways to use Hermès scarves all year round and it’s something you can learn to do with special booklets they produce or just by reading about how others do it on The Purse Forum and elsewhere – there’s a wealth of information available for free. I wore a pair of vintage earrings that really finished off the outfit – argh forgot to add the purple Hapi bracelet!
It’s always nice to give a little back view to remember! I like how the scarf ends echo my dark coloured bag and sandals. The silk shirt is Banana Republic from last year’s Summer sale. The silk isn’t as thick as I’d like it to be but it’s a great style I’ve always worn and the skirt is a no brand bargain I found on *bay for a few pounds that happens to fit me perfectly.
