Scarves in the market – What a choice

There is always a wide selection of scarves in the local market. A rainbow of colours. It is almost impossible to choose.  At only 5 euros each (well they are viscose and not silk or cotton) I indulged myself.  They wash well and add a pop of colour to a simple outfit.

I could not choose between these two so I bought them both

I think this is my favourite.

This one went so well with the hat how could I resist.

I noticed several french women in the market with scarves tied in this fashion, comme “un collier”.

    Hi Paula I have had a go at tying the scarf and have posted some photos with simple instructions on my Chicatanyage Fanpage if you want to check it out.

    Lovely photos! I was just about to ask how you tie that scarf comme ‘le collier’ but I see there are instructions – will have a look. I have some lovely scarves that I never wear and must make more effort in the mornings!

    The blue and pink scarf looks so pretty! I can’t resist scarves either and find that they just light up the face. I’m going to try le collier.

    I love scarves! We have a second home in Southern Spain and the market there likewise has a similar scarf stall – it’s like a sweet shop for me, I can never resist adding to my collection!

    Like your other reader I am 5′ 4” but I do prefer the big pashmina size scarves. If you fold in half lengthways and then twist them they become thinner if needed for around the neck to accessorise an outfit – but then you can also wear them pashmina style round your shoulders or around your hips over your swimsuit to flatter you!

    I’m glad you got both! I really love that Missoni looking one, but the blue looks so pretty on you too!
