Friday post 18/11/22 with “unsuitable” scarves!

Hello and welcome to Friday’s post! This week, I have been looking at scarves that, perhaps, don’t go well with my grey hair. I used to wear these colours, especially brown, when I was younger but since I stopped dyeing my hair and let the greys grow out, I have slowly changed my wardrobe over to a different colour scheme.

So, here are three scarves that have quite a lot of browns and oranges in them. I decided to wear them with the same top and trousers: a navy cashmere mix v-neck jumper from WoolOvers and navy cord jersey trousers from Lands End. By the way, I only wore these clothes for an hour or so each day!

The first scarf is the lovely Olympian Gods by Fetolia in gorgeous shades of teal, orange, pink and brown:

I still think that this scarf, and its sister in the other colourway, would look fantastic framed!

My second scarf of the week was Tyger, Tyger by Hermès. A lovely study in browns, navy, green, blue and red:

When I tie this scarf, I usually try to avoid the large expanse of the “Tyger’s” body and use the parts with the flowers. I don’t think that the orange and browns would work for me!

The third scarf is again by Hermès: La Femme aux Semelles de Vent. This is an absolutely classic H scarf and highly sought after – which is why I bought it! Some of the other colourways would suit me better, but I was really thrilled when I found this one at such an excellent price.

I think that the navy outfit was not the best foil for this scarf and I am not sure what would work from my wardrobe. Dark or light grey, perhaps? I also try to avoid the sepia centre when tying as this colour definitely does not work for me.

One more thing. This is some of the jewellery that I could have worn with these outfits. I did, in fact, wear the earrings!

Anyway, you can see that my plans for working through all of my Hermès Autumn/Winter scarves and shawls are well on the way this year. I still have quite a large pile of boxes and, of course, I can also bring in designers other than Hermes, such as Fetolia, Liberty of London and Ferragamo!

So many scarves, so little time (and energy)!

Happy Weekend to you all.

Love and best wishes,

    Hello Anne and happy belated birthday.
    I love your La Femme aux Semelles de Vent carre and have never seen that colorway. The border is especially lovely.
    Coincidentally, I’m listening to Song of Achilles right now and thought of you when I began it as it might be right up your alley! Then, come to read that you have requested it from your library. I look forward to your review. It is not my usual genre, but it was mentioned so often by authors I like and follow on twitter, that I gave it a shot and am now fully immersed.
    Enjoy your weekend and all your new beautiful jewelry.

      Dear Catherine, thank you so much for your comment. Yes, I was very fortunate to find such a lovely scarf at an affordable price! And what a coincidence about the book. I am still in the queue for it, and I am really looking forward to reading it. I will try to write a more detailed review than I have managed recently. They seem to have become so much shorter since I had the stroke in 2019. I should make more of an effort.
      Best wishes, Anne x
