Scarves For Inbetween Seasons & My OOTD

Well it certainly seems to have gone a little bit on the chilly side these last couple of days, although I'm not complaining as we've still got glorious blue skies (well if you don't count the couple of hail storms we've had this morning) & it is only the last week in March.  In fact this time last year we were still experiencing snow!!!  But if like me you've started to dig out your jackets & blazers from winter hibernation & are loathed to again drag out your winter coat after months of wear you might be needing an extra layer just to keep you that little bit warmer now there's a nip in the air & what better way than with a statement scarf.  A great little addition to your wardrobe to help you cross from winter to spring as well as breathe new life into your existing wardrobe.

Now we all know I love & own the odd one or two scarves (yes I know slight exaggeration but writer's prerogative & all that!!!) & even though I have a good colour selection I still can't resist adding to it if a stunning little number catches my eye.  After all they're great for wearing all year round not to mention adding a splash of colour to an outfit or trialling out a colour you may never have worn before.  Plus of course if hubbies or children are looking for ideas for a certain special day next Sunday then they make the prefect present too ;-)

So first up is this stunning scarf from Mint Velvet.  My inner magpie absolutely loves the sequin detailing, just perfect for jazzing up a dressed down weekend look......I'm thinking when teamed with a simple pair of rolled up boyfriend jeans & a white t-shirt this could look pretty amazing.

Moving away from sequins & onto leopard print for this next one.....well Bet had to put in an appearance didn't she!!!  I mean seriously leopard print teamed with my current favourite colour combination of navy & yellow......well I was always going to love this wasn't I?!!!

If the Lola Rose scarf isn't your cup of tea then how about this one from Betty Barclay?  I love the bright splashes of colour which would really bring to life a simple navy blazer & jean combo.

Moving up the price bracket with this next scarf, but it's such a timeless design that it would never go out of fashion & I love the purple stars teamed with the grey.....in fact this would go perfectly with a jacket I have from Next.

Now along with leopard print I also seem to be developing a love of anything snake print too & this bright scarf from ASOS would be fab for adding a splash of colour to your outfit.

Sticking with a splash of colour with this next one from Pull & Bear but with more of a neutral background.  I think this would look amazing teamed with a denim jacket & beige rolled up chinos.

As I've mentioned in the past I seem to be being drawn to all things bright for SS14 & this next scarf from ASOS is certainly that!!! But I can really see this looking amazing with some distressed denim & a white shirt or t-shirt....a little bit bohemian without having to go full on out there hippy commune.

Sticking with pink tones but on a slightly muted scale is this beautiful scarf from Gemini-Woman.  I absolutely love this shade of pink & once again it would look amazing teamed with denim, not to mention white, greys & navys.

As would this similar coloured one from Next.

I totally love this next blue scarf from Next.  Such a simple yet pretty scarf due to the shade of blue & white edging that really would look gorgeous again worn with denim or indeed perhaps a white maxi skirt/dress not to mention chinos.

Or for a scarf that's going to pretty much go with everything in your wardrobe then how about this cream one from H&M.  I'm loving the detailing & pom pom edging & it would be great for those cooler summer days when you're waiting for the sun to warm up.

Or if you love the style of the H&M ones but fancy something a little less plain then you're going to love this next one from Hush.  The name alone makes me want to buy it as it just conjures up images of happy holiday memories & I'm loving the neon colouring too.

Finishing with a quick photo of my outfit for today.  Needless to say my time management got the better of me yesterday & hubby eventually had to take the laptop off me, having fallen asleep while working!!! But today's another day & I'm DETERMINED it's a quiet one for me today where I'm planning on not being very energetic at all!  In fact the only workout I'm planning on today is the lifting of the remote in the right hand whilst trying to lift the wine glass in the left!!!  I've got some serious TV catching up to do......Line of Duty, The Americans, Nashville, Revenge to name just a few so some serious down time is in order & I CAN'T wait!

So what do you think, do you see any scarves that are calling you or have you decided that you really do have enough scarves in your wardrobe & simply can't justify another one?  I'd love to hear your thoughts not to mention if you've got any great tips for keeping spring like & warm.

Have a fab Sunday & see you in the morning......now where did I put that remote?!!!!

  1. Oh bless you Jane! I hope you got some well deserved rest! I had a power nap with my DD one arvo this week & it was so unlike me but I couldn't keep my eyes open! I was a bad girl & got a gorgeous navy snood in River Island today! I've had my eye on it for a while & I just had to have it today as I'm a bit bored with my current collection! I love the pom pom scarves & would love one of those star ones too! Ax

    1. Yeah I finally stopped & got some down time Andrea, the remote & I were well acquainted by the end of yesterday lol!! Can't wait to see your new snood - it sounds gorgeous & there's nothing like a little treat to inject new life into your wardrobe ;-)

  2. I do like a scarf but sometimes my neck doesn't I overheat..... You really suit them, I have to be careful they don't add bulk to the boobies..... we have the same taste in TV I have some Revenge and Nashville to catch up on also Jane. xx

    1. I don't think I've ever overheated with a scarf Annmarie but there's still time ;-) Hope you caught up on Revenge & Nashville - I'e still got Revenge to go....saving that for next weekend :-)

  3. Love the H&M pom pom scarf.....I feel a purchase coming on Jane! Great scarf inspiration!

    1. Thanks Michelle, I seem to be being drawn to pom pom scarves at the moment!!!
