Mid June is a magical time of year, all across the South of France the lavender is coming out, creating big purple tufts in gardens and fields. For me, this is the true beginning of the summer ahead.
Once the temperatures start climbing, it is time to explore different ways of enjoying scarves.. wearing them as sashes, belts, tunics and tops presents a wonderful change and brings them out in different ways. Tying them into a necklace is bold and fun, and at the same time light and breezy to wear.. perfect for a warm summer's day!

For those who live in very hot climates, a collier knot variation of the above look is a cool alternative: instead of securing the end behind the neck, they are attached to the straps of a top, which avoids almost all skin contact. Please click here for a how-to.
