Friday post 31/03/23: sorting out Spring scarves

Hello and welcome to Friday’s post. Back in September, I wrote about sorting out my scarves into two piles: Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer. I did just that and put a heap of boxes together so that I could easily choose a scarf suitable for colder weather.

Today, I have done the reverse: I piled up all of the boxes and went through them to check which designs and colourways would best work with brighter days and warm-weather outfits. There are, of course, always a few weeks when it is far too hot to wear scarves, but I am sure I will find moments between now and late September when I can wear some of them.

This first one is an obvious choice: the glorious Dans un Jardin Anglais, designed by Alice Shirley for Hermès. That lilac background!

These are a selection from my pile of scarves, mainly by Hermès, but also Liberty and Ferragamo. Most are 90cm silk twill, but there are a couple of smaller scarves, 45cm gavroches and 70cm silks, too. These images are all labelled because the sizing is often not accurate. I have also included scarves that can be worn throughout the year, like the Plumes en Fête 90cm in gorgeous blues…

Depending on the weather, I am sure that I will be wearing my heavier jumpers for a while longer, but I will start the process of checking my clothes meant for warmer, brighter Spring days. I will also have to force myself to get out of bed and put on a nice outfit on more days than I have managed lately. I must try.

Anyway, I am really looking forward to wearing these amazing designs over the next weeks and months.

Happy weekend to you all!

Love and best wishes,
