If you pay real close attention to my photos, wardrobe, and travel accessories, you’ll notice that when I travel, there’s one thing that I NEVER leave home without. I’ll give you three guesses as to what it is:
Have you figured it out yet? I am a scarf fanatic. I ADORE wrapping fabrics around my neck, at once adding a pop of colour and touch of class.
I never leave home without one of my trusty scarves, my favourite travel accessories. They are long. Short. Some have three sides and some have four. I have woolly pashminas, fine silk kerchiefs, and slippery rabbit fur mufflers. My scarves are mostly bright solid colours, though I count my white and pink leopard scarf (a gift from Liebling’s mom last Christmas) amongst my faves.
I am such a scarf fanatic that I have over 30 scarves in all. I am a simple gal: my makeup is basic, I wear no jewelry apart from stud earrings, and my clothes are relatively plain… And so I love jazzing up an outfit with a funky scarf.
My scarves are the best travel accessories. When I travel, I tend to pack REALLLLLLY light. I only bring the basics: solid tees, dark pairs of jeans, and simple footwear….
However, a punchy, playful scarf has the power to change my outfit completely. If I’m going away on a weekend trip, I may only bring one pair of pants… But two scarves. They are a look changer and space saver! Peep how I rocked pink and blue scarves in Brussels a few months back:
I started wearing scarves wayyyyyyyy back in 2005 when I moved to France. I bought my first, a brown polyester affair, at a market in Italy for 2 Euro and wore it to the DEATH. Frayed and embarrassingly tattered, it finally made it into the bin a couple of years later, but my penchant for scarves wore on. Now, over 30 scarves later, my neck feels bare without one.
What are your favourite travel accessories?
P.S.: On a side note, I just looked at all the pictures again and realized that I have a different hairstyle in like every single one. I guess variety is the spice of life… LOL
