Outfit of the day 12/01/18

Most days, even if I don’t manage to get out of bed for long, I try to wear something nice and also add a scarf and earrings. I now have quite a coordinated wardrobe with lovely matching accessories, so I must wear them! I am going to make more of an effort next week as I am determined to leave the house on at least one day. My gorgeous Hermès scarves need an outing or two.

This was one of my outfits this week:

  • Aqua cashmere cowl neck jumper – Marks and Spencer.
  • Navy velour joggers – Cotton Traders.
  • Crystal and gold stud earrings.
  • Turquoise, white and gold tassel necklace – eBay.

By the way, you can really see my silver hair coming through in the photo below…

I look at eBay pretty regularly as I have a few items on my wish list. This week I had a big surprise when I found a scarf up for sale that I bought ages ago. It is a vintage Liberty of London scarf in cream silk, with the design in pale blue, called The Laws of the Game of Cricket. Here is my blog post from February last year when I bought my copy. According to the description I saw this week, and this was the surprise, this scarf is a very rare collectors’ item (of course you can take that with a pinch of salt) and there are framed  copies of it in famous cricket pavilions around the world. The price for this scarf on eBay was over £200. What did I pay for it? Erm, £16.00……. yes, sixteen pounds only!

I have no idea what to make of that. What do readers think?

Anyway, this is how I styled my scarf back in June 2017:

Here is another small snippet of information. I generally wear my scarves with very casual outfits and it is unusual for me to have the opportunity to dress up. I saw a website mentioned on The Purse Forum the other week that may be useful for people who also like to use scarves in a similar way. The site is called Hymne aux Carrés and, although it has not been updated for quite a while, it has loads of lovely ideas for styling scarves with casual clothing.

I hope that all my readers have a wonderful weekend.

Best wishes,
