    1. Perhaps one day you'll feel like trying... a scarf top feels wonderful, and brings out the design so well.

  8. It's lovely to see you in brighter colours every now and then MaiTai. I love this colour of Fleur d'Indiens on you matched with picotin. I have the same colour of scarf and it's one of my favourite prints. The necklace's gorgeous. The green brings out the pink.
    Have a lovely week :)

    1. How lovely to be twins with you on the FdI! It is one of the happiest CWs in my collection. Love it for summer, and now that it finally gets a little cooler, I’m so thrilled to have a chance to wear it.. Have a great rest of the week!

    1. Many thanks, my dear ilsa! Similar jackets seem to be around this season, I’ve been in town a couple of days ago to check on autumn arrivals. Will post my finds soon (no new scarf though... yet).

  10. :-) Ach, wie schön, wenn man ein Carré so tragen kann - das spart nicht nur enorm viel Platz im Koffer, sondern ist zugleich eine atemberaubende Bluse! :-)
    BEAUTIFUL ! :-)
    Herzliche Grüße :-)

    1. Lieben Dank, happyface! Falls es Dir 'ohne alles' zu freizügig ist, kannst Du immer noch einen Blazer oder Cardigan überziehen. Ich stimme Dir bei, ein toller Blusenersatz (und zudem noch leicht zu bügeln!). Liebe Grüsse

  11. You wear the scarf as a top, beautifully, my dearest MaiTai.
    I must gain courage to wear it like this once in a while. It looks lovely!
    I like your jacket very much.
    Have a great day! M xx

  12. I love the scarf as a top look, dear, and especially paired with your green gemstone necklace. Do you ever wear your gemstone necklace with a scarf tied in the asymmetrical wrap or criss-cross? For me, it seems to me that the choice is either scarf or necklace, as I have trouble incorporating both of them together. Any suggestions?

    Warm orange hugs, dear.

    1. Happy you like the look, many thanks, my dearest CS! Thank you also for the request (love requests!). Will think of a few ways, and post some pictures soon. Orange hugs right back xx

  13. Absolutely luminous! You look so beautiful in vibrant colours, and your gemstone necklace is a treasure! I was reading CS's comment...I too have difficulty incorporating a necklace and a scarf. Perhaps you can feature a post focusing on this subject. I particularly wear a lot of Chanel chains, and gemstone chains....just a thought!
    Thanks dearest Mai Tai!

    1. Yes, I agree! A dedicated post would be most helpful! In addition to Barbara's request, I am looking for ways to get more wear out of my farandole, and large gemstone pendants. The farandole is not so difficult as I layer it beneath many scarf knots, but being such a timeless and classic piece, I never tire of seeing it and look forward to seeing you style yours, dearest MT.
