Foulard de la semaine - une femme d'un certain âge

Foulard de la semaine

Above, my favorite way to wear a silk square during warmer months. This scarf is from Talbots from a few years ago, and is still one of my best-loved and most often worn.

Scarf detail

For how-to, see below, “Scarf as necklace.”

Bon weekend!

    Pseu- I recognized the scarf right away as one in my collection. And the knotted necklace is a fun way to wear it. 93 degrees today in upstate New York so I will tie my scarf to my tote. While I love summer, I would love a few cooler days. Happy weekend!

    Thanks for the reminder – it’s so nice that scarves are back in fashion. I have saved all of mine, but forget some of the ways I used to wear them.

    Oh the colours of that silk scarf would slip effortlessly into my wardrobe too :-))
    I have worn my Hermes like this and I think of it as the necklace fold.
    Hope that you have a great weekend.

    Your very useful video is enchanting, as always, and seeing you in action (as opposed to still photographs) is a delight – I smiled all the way through. Thank you.

    Love the scarf tying videos. I like to wear my scarves that way too, even in cooler weather.

    Reminds me of the “old house in Paris” illustration from Bemelman’s Madeline.

    I rarely wear a scarf during the summer, they make me too hot! Yours is very pretty x

    I think our weather is going down to 80’s from 100’s. I’ll try the necklace version next week!

    Is this a new one? I’ve missed the scarf videos. Making a mental note to try this as part of the 6 items challenge. I’ll be working my scarves!

    Though I don´t feel ” at home ” with square scarves, I like seeing them on others.
