On scarves and shopaholism

Dress: H&M, Scarf: Massimo Dutti, Cuff: F21, Ring: Red Ruby Silver, Watch & Earrings: Gifted, Clutch: Zara, Shoes: Dorothy Perkins.  

Ever since I was sent this gorgeous printed cotton scarf from Massimo Dutti, I've been picturing in my head what I'd wear it with. After constructing and pulling down many outfits in my mind I finally decided that this scarf is too exquisite to not take centre stage. Which is why I decided to wear it over a simple gray pencil dress. I absolutely love the print on the scarf and I love the fact that it's so long.

Until next time, stay stylish. xoxox

  1. Love the outfit and the scarf...easy breezy and classy. I do understand the compulsion to shop as I have been around people like that. Glad that you've found balance...nothing beats a well tailored outfit. I miss that...I dislike shopping...yes...but only because finding clothes that fit my unbalanced proportions is quite traumatic...it was this way when I was a size 8...and it's this way at 10. Good post!

    1. Thank you! You'll get better, you'll see. ;)

  2. Such a fashionable lady ~ accessories are all very elegant ~ Very creative style ~ Good to hear from you ~ thanks, ^_^
