As soon as the weather starts to turn brisk, I always add to my bag essentials. A hat, of course (not just for warmth – it keeps the fringe flat on windy days and keeps the hair dry and frizz-free in the rain – I quite often have one on hand in the summer too!) and gloves, but the most important addition is a scarf.
Ever since pashmina-style scarves became so readily available, I’ve pretty much abandoned the humble knitted scarf – apart from when it snows! They’re so much more versatile for our changeable weather, ideal to wear with a light jacket during the annoying in-between summer and autumn period – I quite often put mine on at work when the air conditioning is particularly overpowering. Plus, they’re pretty, stylish and come in so many different colours, I can’t stop buying them.
I was just about ready to start raiding my winter storage suitcase for a scarf when Moodys got in touch and offered to send me this fashion scarf. It was perfect - I’ve hardly taken it off since. It’s super soft and light, but long enough to wrap around twice for extra warmth. And it’s pretty.
Every year, I go mad buying hats as soon as Autumn starts – this year, I think I might transfer my hat addiction to scarves. There are tons of lovely ones on the Moodys website, I'm utterly spoilt for choice. Friday Frocks has been going for a while... maybe it's time for Scarves on Sunday. Anyone? :)
