End of summer and half price shipping

Bye-bye summer and hello September! 

Happy Labor Day weekend to those who celebrate, and a wonderful start into the scarf season for everyone!

After a much too hot and long summer, it is a relief to see the light getting softer, nature preparing for fall and the nights becoming cooler. Because of our continuing warm temperatures, long sleeves (let alone jackets) still seem to be a distant reality, so for the moment I am greeting the beginning of autumn by adding muted pastels and darker colors into the wardrobe mix, while wearing my scarves in loose knots and drapes.

 To celebrate the new season a 50% reduction on Standard International shipping has been implemented today.

August - visiting old friends

Did I just write August into the headline... how is this possible? Life seems to be moving on with crazy speed!

In a nostalgic mood I browsed some of the older sections of the blog and found some knots that I haven't worn for years. So for today's blog I thought it would be fun to tie my scarves in these knots. You can find the tutorials for all featured knots here

I hardly dare say it, but the problem with leaving comments doesn't seem to have gone away. If anyone has any ideas of how to solve this please email me at: maitai@maitaicollection.com Otherwise please try, as it sometimes seems to work. Alternatively you can email your comment to the above address and I'll publish it on your behalf. Sorry to mention all this yet again, but I always look forward to hearing from you and to our chats, and there were none to be had in the last post!

Wishing you all a very happy remaining summer, and hoping you enjoy the long days and mild evenings (or cosy winter evenings in other parts of the world!)
