Next Olympic 2012 Scarf

Hi lovelies..
I'm back with a slightly different post today. As the whole world is probably aware, the UK is hosting the Olympics. The whole of Blighty is going Olympics crazy.
I remember watching the Olympics every 4 years as a child with my family. We were all quite sporty and whilst other girls were picking The Spice Girls as their roles models i was picking Sally Gunnell ( The great women's British hurdler)
I loved seeing all the colours of each countries kits and flags. I loved the atmosphere that you could almost feel through the TV. I was a young sprinter and aspired to one day run at the Olympics. As i got older my competitive streak lessened and i found myself running less. But my love for the Olympics never died.
So when Next contacted me and asked if i would like to participate in the 2012 Next Olympic Scarf campaign i jumped at the chance.
All profits from the sale  will be donated to the British Olympic Association! 
So i had a think on how to style this scarf
I was sent the Paralympic scarf:

And this is how i styled it:
THE TOP KNOT
 THE NECKERCHIEF

 La lala la la, casually posing with my Olympics scarf.... as you do!

 THE BAG SCARF



 THE BUN TIE

THE WRIST BOW

And then... we started messing about... i blame Hubs!!
THE BANDIT

THE MOUSTACHE!

 And finally, 
THE SKIRT

I'm a huge scarf collector. I love how a scarf can change an outfit.
What's your favourite way to wear a scarf? Got any more ideas for me to remix mine up with for the Olympics?

PS Yes red, white and blue is back, but i blame Next the Olympics and Great Britain!!! They made me!

  1. Yup, defo the bandit lol! I love red, white and blue - such a fab colour combo. How about rolling it up and threading some chunky beads on - a la necklace style!

  5. I love this! Scarves are basically my favorite accessory because, as you prove, they are so versatile. My person favorite way to wear it is "the MOUSTACHE" hahah! You are seriously rocking them all ways though! I actually just told Marisa of the blog Shades of Monet that she should do a post like this because she is also a scarf queen :)
    Hope you are having a terrific day!
