Let’s talk about scarves.

Does anyone else have a small hoard of them in their closet? I’m sure it’s not just me but without actively wanting too I end up with at least one new scarf a season (maybe more). There’s something that just grabs me about them – the bad side? Well here goes, confession time! I tend to wear them constantly for a season and then they get relegated to only being worn occasionally. Worse still (and not on purpose) I find it harder to donate scarves than clothes – with scarves they’re still cute whether the trends have moved on and the colours are all wrong, I still love them. Unlike my clothes haul which in recent years I have fallen out of love with after a season (or they have fallen out of love with me! Hello bobbles!) But scarves, scarves never let me down – even when they have to have a whole drawer dedicated to them alone! (I have thrown out a few this year I promise – about 2 but I’m working on it!

But if there’s one upside it’s that you can wear scarves in a multitude of ways. The above are my favourite ways to wear scarves during the spring. It’s all about the light weight scarf in spring and summer and with travelling to India again this year it’s always good to have a really large thin scarf to wrap around yourself when you go out and especially in the temples and mosques hence the sari wrap. It’s probably my favourite way to wear this scarf at the moment whether it’s just to ward of a chill or a make do blanket on the train, I love it and its all down to those stylish ladies we saw in Ahmedabad! So thank you all of you for your incredible wrapping skills!

There’s obviously also the classic – cold girl wrap. You know the one – the post pub/dancing walk home or to the nearby pizza joint or the cold restaurant. It’s the scarf wrap of dreams in all those instances!

The final one is the make do infinity scarf. I’m not sure when the infinity trend started but it doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon! I wear this a lot into the office for some extra warmth or when wearing lower cut tops and is probably my daily go to at the moment

What ways do you like to wear your scarves? And do you have any pretty bow tricks to offer? Cause I’ve been thinking about how to wear the tutorial from yet another beauty site forever. . .

Happy Thursday! Do you no what the best thing about Thursdays are? Its close to Friday. Which means we can pull out those weekend clothes again! Can I get a whoop whoop?

So last weekend me and the boy went to London ( I might have mentioned that . . .) for the weekend and thought it would be sensible to pack all our clothes and stuff into our rucksacks rather than taking unnessessary luggage which was great, if not a little annoying but it meant that comfy clothes and re mixable ones were key! During the day I wore this tunic like this and then in the evening I switched it up with my red heels and leggings.

Whats funny is I hardly wear my many pairs of converse these days but we took these pictures in my university campus and I used to always wear Converse to class! In fact I’m pretty sure if you asked anyone from my classes what my style was Converse would be mentioned! rocking them again was fun until I got killer cramp which has plagued me all week since but it was worth it for running round in something other than boots (walking or otherwise).

Whats your most comfortable about town shoe? And if you’re a bigger footed lady like myself where do you love for great priced but supportive shoes that don’t look like you’ve stolen your grandmothers orthopedics*. Or that they have made a comeback from the nineties . . . I hate that.

*my grandmothers would like to add that they don’t in fact wear orthopedic shoes. these are the type of offending shoe I was thinking of . . . *shudders* pale peach what?!?

I try to keep the backgrounds of these images different. Cause honestly who wants to look at the same blank wall every week? But the weather has been conspiring against us. Our town flooded over Christmas and has since then left our park half flooded and taken with it some of our favourite photog places. Add constant rain, wind and bad weather all round has meant a lot of walls and inside shots so I apologise.

So todays post is less cute. There were less cute pictures than these believe me.
