The School Gate Style Scarf Shop - just lovely!


If you know me, many of you will also know Avril over at School Gate Style. In blogging terms, Avril and I go back a long way. We appeared in the same article in the Daily Mail and shared both the good (and the bad) from that! We weathered the comments of the Mumsnet fashionistas at the same time, as well as featuring on the same style page in Essentials Magazine. So, when Avril asked whether I might like to have and, if I felt like it, feature one of her scarves from her shop I was only too happy to oblige. Hopefully she won't be too cross with me for taking so long to getting around to writing about it.

As many of you will know, the paint box/art attack trend is a huge trend this season and this splash scarf in poppy (£10) is a great way to tap into the trend in a really accessible way because let's face it, it can be a tricky trend to pull off. This scarf is a great way of pepping up a plain outfit, as I've done in with the outfit above which is, let's face it, looking pretty blue!

And so to some of my other current favourites that Avril has in her shop....

navy and neon scarf (£12) - there are only three of these left though. Race you.... I love the colours in this scarf together with the print, which would suit those who aren't too fond of flowery prints. It also feels very summery and appropriate for a trip abroad.

Pink zig zag scarf (£10) - again, there are only three left. Predictably I love, love, love the pink in it.

Leopard print scarf in grey and sky blue (£15). This one I like for its subtle print and colours. I think that it would be great with a grey or navy suit for work.

Oooh, believe me, there are too many lovely choices to mention. And how is it that how many scarves you have, there's always just room for one (or two, or three) more in your wardrobe?
