I thought that I would show you the rest of my Christmas pressies today. First of all, the interesting scarf that Lovely Husband gave me: A Feminist at Heart by Karin Assaf via Wolf & Badger (no longer available).
The colours on this 70cm silk scarf are really pretty with shades of blue, gold, orange, white and grey. I first saw this on the Vivienne Files website (link in the sidebar) and couldn’t resist it when I saw the name and the design. It really fits with me! The words at the top say “She was a bookworm” and there are two shelves of books with titles naming famous women. There are also travel scenes and a gorgeous wolf. Fabulous!
This is my first 70cm scarf and I styled it like this:
This was a casual criss-cross knot based on a loose bias fold using a MaiTai horn scarf ring. The scarf would look good folded on either diagonal and I will show more ties when I have worn the scarf in other ways. I think that navy, bright blues or white would be the best colours to wear with this scarf.
Here is a collage of the full outfit:
- Navy cashmere v-neck jumper – John Lewis.
- Navy velour pants – Cotton Traders.
- Bronze art nouveau style earrings.
- Horn scarf ring – MaiTai.
Staying with the theme of bright blue, Elder Son gave me these glorious crystal and silver earrings. These will go beautifully with many outfits and accessories already in my collection, but will particularly match something that is currently winging my way (more about that next week).
Younger Son gave LH and me a joint present of DVDs: the new Dunkirk film and the first three seasons of Peaky Blinders, one of our favourite series. I gave LH some presents based around politics and both lads wanted cash to spend on their own interests.
So, that completes the Christmas gifts. Next week I will show you the items I have fallen for in the sales. I cannot resist sales, as those of you who follow this blog will know very well by now!
Hope you all have a great weekend.
