Capsule wardrobe #29 with some extra colour

Spicing up trusted capsule pieces with a khaki v-neck sweater, a find on my recent trip to Paris, bought at the 'Le Bon Marché' department store in St. Germain. At 80 EUR, it was a 'bon achat' too!

The 70 Vintage Carré 'Pani-La Shar Pawnee' is one of my favorites, and I only now realized it has never before featured in a post.

Pani-La Shar Pawnee AW 2007 (orig design Kermit Oliver 1984)

It's contrasting border makes it a perfect candidate for the waterfall knot, highlighting the fabulous ripple effect. I love to explore how a knot works with different scarf sizes, and the waterfall turns out easy and casual with a 70x70 format.

Capsule pieces: camel corduroy jeans, khaki v-neck sweater and chocolate leather jacket
Shoes: chocolate leather sneakers
Accessories: Pani-La Shar Pawnee 70 Carré Etoupe, MT Horn bracelet (coming bientôt) and Picotin bag
Scarf tying method: Waterfall knot here
Scarf ring: MT Collection moyenne size in light honey

Closer on the knot, and without a jacket

  1. This sort of outfit is absolutely my favourite - casual and refined at the same time! Very pretty. Btw, have not managed to score etoupe picotin when visiting H yesterday, but I can enjoy it in your posts, which is a beautiful replacement for my yet-to-come Pico. Your sweater is also nice - there is one more shop on my must-visit Paris map. Best, Lilian

  2. I adore the way that scarf shows off the knot so well, such attention to detail is one of the reasons I love your blog. The colours of the scarf are just gorgeous. Really looking forward to seeing the rest of the week's entries!

  3. My dear MaiTai,like you I think it is so much fun to play with different scarves of different sizes and tie them in different ways!I must soon try the waterfall knot.It is quite different from the others and gives the scarf so much "life"! The MT bracelet is very pretty and I can´t wait to see more pictures of it. This outfit looks so good on you. It adds light to your skin. Thank you for all your precious lessons and kind words. Warm hugs, Manuela

  4. Beautiful colours on the vintage carré with the kakhi/neutral outfit, they really suit you. So happy the horn braelet is coming soon, I have had my eye on it since it first appeared in a photo a few months ago.
    Still working on the knot, can't quite master it yet.

  5. Too cute for your own good dear MT;)
    I so love this look on you and me,too!
    So glad to see Kermit Oliver make an appearance here. He is one of my favs and I have collected his designs for years.
    His personal story is very heart wrenching,to say the least.
    He is an amazing artist!
    Thanks so much for this<3 T xx

  6. I remember seeing your horn cuff a while back and thinking "hey this looks very nice!" I'm glad to hear it's coming soon.
    After seeing this post and the waterfall knot with your 70 scarf I'm even more disappointed to have found nothing to my liking (70 wise) when I visited my local H store last weekend. I have my eyes on the pois de soie and claque au vent...unfortunately those haven't come in yet..... My wallet doesn't complain though......
    It's such a pleasure to have new posts every other day! Thank you dear MT. I can't wait to see what you have in store for us for the rest of the week.

  7. Du siehst wieder mal klasse aus! Aber mich interessiert grad mehr ein Detail auf dem Foto. Wie ist denn das Carre an der Wand festgemacht?

  8. More treats - such wonderful, rich colours together. Such a glorious KO 70cm - one of my favorite sizes suitable to my more casual lifestyle. I'm also delighted to hear the MT horn bracelet will soon be available.

  9. Dear MT,

    You are such a stunner! Thanks so much for a 'how to' video on the waterfall knot. Loved the look. Bet it will go very nicely with your GP too! Have a wonderful day.

  10. Delightful combination! I can't wait to practice this knot with my turquoise 70 cm Pani. Thanks again for the inspiration.

  11. Love, love, LOOOOOOVE that jacket!!! Just too gorgeous for words, and I'm eager for that bracelet to become available.

  12. My dearest MaiTai,
    A double congratulations! A great v-neck, perfect for the magnificent Pawnee - this colorway is spectacular on you, and extra special with the CeC behind. Your gorgeous Waterfall knot is fantastic, a wonderful marriage of the slide and the criss-cross, so feminine and romantic…perfect for Valentine week <3 Very thrilled to hear the exciting news of your upcoming horn bracelets, dear MaiTai, the one you have on today is most beautiful with your lovely warm ensemble. Thank you so much for the extra treats, you are truly spoiling us. Sending you much love and extra warm hugs, xx

  13. What perfect timing, dear MaiTai! This design has been one of my grails for a long time, and I just got it in a 90cm, in the navy and taupe cw this week and have been looking for a way to show off the border - Thank you! xx

  14. Just perfect...absolutely perfect!!
    You look lumious as always, wonderful post!

  15. My colleague has told me about your blog, as she wears beautiful H scarves combined with your scarf rings and always looks fabulous wearing dark jeans and casual-like clothing with right accessories. I have enjoyed your blog ever since - it truly is inspiration and source of wonderful ideas. You are a wonderful teacher and I am looking forward truly very much to the future accessories in your collection and the outfits which will come. Thanks for everything!

  16. MaiTai, so wonderful to see you wearing colors! Love it! thank you for sharing.

  17. :gulp: Remember last time, when you wore your gorgeous bolide with the perfect scarf and I told you, this was one of my all time favorites? Well, it still is, but here's another look to add to the list. Still in search of words, hence the :gulp: - all I can think of is outstanding and ddc (drop dead chic)! Hope, that's good enough. ;-) hugs, Macs

  18. PS: Thank you so much for playing with Ms. Bolide ;-) Making my anxiety grow daily. :D

  19. correction: I ment Ms. Picotin - see, the excitement made me get it wrong (please pull the comments together, if you can ;-)
