Scarf-A-thon – Final Post

Well I’ve done it! 64 scarves worn, in, you guessed it – 64 days! Check out my last 16.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More butterflies…. this one is pretty, worn out for a walk!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely jewel tones in this scarf from Camden, London. Bought on my first big overseas trip!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Bali purchase, red and purple…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think this was a Kuala Lumpur purchase, Chinatown shopping!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pretty sure this was a Kmart number. Lots of colours.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another owl print, this was a birthday gift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anchors! Kmart? I have so many blue scarves…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Large knitted snood. Love the knit on this.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Polka dots, bought in Melbourne!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More butterflies, with my new unicorn brooch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A random throwback, this scarf was bought in Istanbul 10 years ago!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Kuala Lumpur purchase, they were super cheap!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Love this one, no idea where it came from? Holiday purchase, gift?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bought this lovely scarf in Cambodia back in 2009.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thin and silky, this one is prone to fall off. I ended up knotting the front.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This lovely silk number is from Vietnam. Kept it in place with my cat badge!

 

So there, Scarf-a-thon 2017 is done! I can’t believe I committed for so long, impressive. Now what will next year’s wardrobe challenge be?

Scarf-A-Thon Post 4!

Another twelve scarves worn! Getting down to the last few. Some have already been put in the donation pile. I can’t believe I still have some favourites left to wear. Check out the latest wearings:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This lovely silk number was a gift from my aunty. So many colours, it makes it difficut to match with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have lots of butterfly scarves. I actually lost my favourite one, another blue one the night we got engaged. I think it must have fallen out of the car out of my lap when we went for dinner. RIP.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bought this scarf in the Dingle peninsula in Ireland in 2007. Love the velvet and sequins running through it!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A simple coral coloured one, gets a lot of wear with patterned tops.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hedgehogs number 2!  A Christmas gift from a colleague.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely tropical bird pattern. I think this was also a gift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Classic black, white and grey. Oh and more butterflies. Always butterflies.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pink and patterned, lovely with a white top and grey jeans.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flamingoes! What’s not to love? Was this a gift? I think so…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Musical notes, another Christmas gift, this time from my boss.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This stole is so old, I’ve had it for about 20 years. Can be worn around the waist too. Glitzy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I bought this as a gift for someone, then went back and bought it for me too! Love the colours.

 

So that’s 48 scarves in total! I’m going to get to 60, another 12 to go…

Scarf-A-Thon Post 3

Another 12! I have decided to go to 48, and any scarves not worn after that run the risk of being donated or thrown out. Only fair I think?

Anyway, here’s 25 to 36!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A bright, orange floral print that I bought in Melbourne about 5 years ago.

I always have to buy scarves when I go to Melbourne!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely cream and colourful butterflies. I think this is from KMart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Subdued pale lilac with a grey tree branch pattern. I think this could have

been a gift? Worn with maroon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Purple and plaid! I have had this scarf for a long time, no idea where it came from!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was a gift from my mum. Loved how it matched my tights!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Orange and Zebras, what’s not to love?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Black, red and turquoise, a gift brought back from India! Scarves are

the best souvenirs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lovely grey-blue plain scarf I bought in China. I bought a lot of scarves in China…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another Bali buy. Worn out bush walking!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a fabulous scarf. So long and warm! Bought from Cotton On.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More butterflies! I think this was a gift from a colleague one year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was a birthday gift about 8 years ago. Well worn and looking a bit

sad, perfect for wearing around the home.

 

See you soon for the final 12!

Scarf-A-Thon Post 2

Here are the next 12 scarves I have worn for my 30+ day Scarf-a-thon! Still relatively easy to choose… though a few pattern clashing moments! I will be left with patterned scarves and patterned tops no doubt!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This blue, pink, white, black and olive scarf was a birthday gift a few years ago. It’s a great travelling scarf and debuted in China in 2014!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This lovely floral and bird print scarf was also a birthday present. Worn with a light blue jumper.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plain blue, not sure where or who from. A trusty classic, worn here with my new Jacqui E dress to Disney on Ice!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A lovely suede feeling stole with die cuts. I have never worn this but I loved the feel of it, so will need to wear it again! Birthday gift.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This weird fluffy number has twisty elastic inside that you can wrap around itself. Sounds cool, but in theory it’s a bit short so it constantly unravels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My favourite hedgehog scarf that I bought in China. We ended up teaching the Chinese stall owner how to say hedgehog in English. Wasn’t easy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I think this beautiful scarf was a gift, but I can’t recall from who? I wore it with my scarf holder, first time! Love the deer charm on the end.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plain red scarf worn with polka dots. This scarf gets worn a lot, red goes with a lot of my wardrobe. It’s from Target.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Kmart number! Green fern pattern. Light, soft and big.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This pink, orange and yellow silk scarf must have been a gift but I can’t remember who from. It’s very high quality though!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Black and red scarf that I purchased from Bali last year.  Let’s not discuss how many scarves I bought in Bali…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year I got this purple scarf for my birthday. Worn with a purple, white and black dress. I foresee this scarf to have a lot of use!
