It has been another really hot day again and I have spent it lying in a heap blogging and reading to avoid an asthma or coughing attack. So no scarves for me today!
- Frosted lilac, cotton mix cardigan – Lands’ End. This soon came off as the weather warmed up!
- Purple sapphire, cotton vest – Lands’ End.
- Navy linen trousers – Isle.
- Amethyst and silver earrings – Blue Nile.
- Bell and bow silver pendant – present from Lovely Husband on our Honeymoon a long, long time ago.
I have never done this before, but it is well known on The Purse Forum and sites such as Instagram. I thought that it would be fun to open yesterday’s parcel slowly, like this…
Here is the iconic orange box with the bolduc ribbon tied in a bow…
…the bow has been untied…
…the ribbon has been removed and the box is ready to open…
…the lid is open and the tissue paper has been moved to give a little peek at the contents…
…now you can see the folded scarf…which one is it?
…the scarf is out of the box and ready to be unfolded… nearly there…
…and here it is – Appaloosa des Steppes 45cm gavroche! Ta da!!
Isn’t it cute in a cowboy knot?
It also looks good in a bias fold with a MaiTai scarf ring to hold it.
The necklace I was wearing with the scarf was this horn and green lacquer pendant from QueCraft. I think that they go well together now that I have seen the idea of wearing scarves and necklaces at the same time on The Purse Forum!
I love this little scarf already and will write a Scarf of the Moment post in due course. Tomorrow I have another smaller reveal for you from my Summer Sale purchases.
