Back in the day, I used to wear scarves with just about every outfit. It was my ´thing`, and it was definitely a rarity to ever leave the house without, kind of like a missing link. I would feel naked without one around my neck to either help pull together an outfit, keep me warm, or add that pop of colour (which you all know I love)…

For some reason, I hardly ever wear scarves anymore (with the exception of winter). I have no idea why; maybe its the lack of time and simply forgetting to add yet another accessory to my outfit (I have become somewhat of a minimalist these past few years). That´s not to say I don’t love a beautiful scarf. Especially in silk. And especially (with the right style), it can so easily transform your entire outfit…


My scarf collection is pretty non-eventful to be honest, in shades of neutral navy, greys and blacks. When I came across new London brand, Leonor, it was love at first sight (working in the industry, I’m rarely taken a back by anything nowadays!). With the striking and vidid, yet classic colour palette, and limited edition prints – it´s certainly a one-of-a-kind accessory brand. I’m not a fan of small and narrow scarves; it has to be wide and oversized, so I can either wrap it up in a bundle or use it more as a shawl (or even, with this one in particular, use it during my summer holidays as a sarong!).


If you see my home and garden, you would clearly see my obsession with palms, plants and cactuses – so needless to say, the Tropical Dawn Scarf was the clear winner.

The key to a statement scarf, is keeping the rest of the outfit classic and minimal (music to my ears). And with the simple addition of this bright silky piece; my relatively casual ensemble is transformed into a more chic and feminine look (in other words, totally worth the investment).
