Are you afraid to mix it up? I can help!
I can not believe it is almost October! The summer has flown by and I am gearing up for a busy fall season. I have had a ton of feedback from all of my scarf loving followers and I love to hear from you. If you have purchased a scarf that you are enjoying or have gifted one to a friend, it is always appreciated if you post a review on Facebook. It helps me and it helps others who are deciding which scarf is the perfect one for them.
After receiving some requests for in person shows, I am doing some POP UPS around the country. I am in Ottawa so have bookings here, but I am also traveling to Trenton, ON, Horseshoe Valley, ON, and Surrey B.C. this fall. If any of you wish to attend please email me and I will give you the location details. If you would like to host a POP UP and are within a days drive of Ottawa please let me know, I always love to show off my beautiful scarves. I am also thrilled to be a sponsor at Lisa Larter’s Money, Mindset and Marketing event in Ottawa on November 1st. I can’t wait to meet all the enthusiastic women entrepreneurs at this event.
In addition to prepping for the Christmas season and the POP UPs, I am always planning my next adventure. I am heading back to Chiang Mai to visit my favourite shop this winter and going to Bali for the first time. I expect to find some Balinese scarves to bring home for you! Stay tuned for updates!
A reminder to you that shipping in Canada is free and the scarves are beautifully packaged and ready for gifting. If you can’t decide, you can always purchase a gift certificate or drop me an email and I am happy to help you choose. I have a few tips on my website to help you choose a scarf as a gift for someone. You will find it here: https://wanderlustscarves.com/gift-guide/
Today’s Scarf Tip
I would like to give you another tip for wearing your beautiful Wanderlust Scarves. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns. A good rule of thumb is to keep a similar colour palate, and keep one pattern small and the other large. So if you have a narrow striped shirt use a bigger pattern or a textured scarf with it, like this:
Notice here how there is a large floral pattern and lots of blue in the scarf to compliment the stripe in the blouse. Also this works well because the textures are different and add interest because of that contrast. The blouse is rougher linen and the scarf is silk.
Or if you have a patterned blouse use texture or a geometric pattern to compliment it, like this:
In this case the blouse pattern is busy and has black, grey, cream and white colour theme. The blouse is a smooth cotton and the scarf is a very wide stripe in a super fine wool and cashmere blend. It works because the grey and cream and beige in the scarf compliments the blouse colours.
I hope this gets you thinking about how you can mix up your scarf selection. Do you like how this beautiful cream and grey scarf looks tied like this? Follow me on Facebook and I will go live next week to show you how to tie it!
Scarf hugs to all!
