Last year when I met with my friend who is a stylist she said what was missing in my wardrobe was an animal print scarf. Now I have a scarf obsession and have hundreds but off I went in search of the perfect animal print scarf. I found one in John Lewis, I didn't need to think about it long and it came home with me. I have worn it and worn it and it goes with everything - she was right! Thank you Katherine!
But whenever I wear it and post on Instagram I get asked where it is from. Sadly John Lewis discontinued it and I have struggled to find something similar I can recommend.
But I have scanned the internet for you and I have a few suggestions:
First just to compare, here is mine from John Lewis ... it does work very well with red.
The first one is from Mango, I spotted this when Donna at I won't wear sludge brown featured it on her blog. Now as you can see this is a pretty rubbish image of it! But do click on this link and take a look - Mango Leopard Print Scarf £15.99.
Next up a few from Oliver Bonas. Top is the Brushed Animal Print Scarf £28 then bottom left is the Animal Shimmer Scarf £42 and finally the Leopard Print Scarf £28.
Then this Warehouse one is very good value at £19 and perhaps the closest in colour to mine? Leopard Print Scarf £19.
As you all know I am a really big fan of the online scarf and accessories shop, Sweet-Bea but unfortunately they haven't got quite the right animal print scarf this year but do take a look at their belts! My sister had one on the when we met up last week and was very pleased with it. Plus they have a really good selection of bracelets and cuffs - great ideas for Christmas gifts, do pop over and explore their site!
Hope this gives you a few ideas, let me know if you purchase one! I have been extremely busy these last few weeks running the office for my husband's business but it should all calm down again now and I can get back to blogging! I have a really good blog post planned later in the week, I want to tell you about the Wellness in Menopause Workshop I attended recently.
