Update 20/12/18 with more about my new Hermès scarf

Yesterday morning I felt well enough to actually get dressed and take some modelling photos with my gorgeous new Hermès scarf: À L’Ombre des Pivoines. I wore my mid grey cashmere short sleeved top and lighter grey cashmere cardigan, with aqua glass and silver heart-shaped earrings.

Here are the scarf ties that I tried. I think they really show off the versatility of the scarf. The texture of the silk twill is very crisp and quite stiff, so I will wait until it has softened up before I attempt the more draped ties, such as the edo or waterfall knots.

À L’Ombre des Pivoines – scarf ties

  1. Top row L-R: bias fold, cowboy cowl, opposite bias fold
  2. Middle row L-R: asymmetric wrap, cowboy cowl with a different corner on show, cowl knot
  3. Bottom row L-R: asymmetric wrap reversed, wrap knot, half bow knot.

Those of you with good eyesight may have seen that I am using a new scarf ring in a couple of the photos. I will reveal all after Christmas as it is one of my presents to myself!

Now, I am hoping that I am well enough tomorrow to go out with Lovely Husband, because I want to wear this outfit!

Best wishes,

      Thank you x I am so happy to have this scarf and I think it is already one of my favourites. There are so many other lovely ones in this new season, but I need to restrain myself!
