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”.

Thank you for reading and I do love all your comments.
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.
wow….so many to look at, so many possibilities! Looks like fun and you picked 2 lovely wonderful ones!
PS THANKS for info on “le collier”……will be trying it!!
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!
