Recent scarf purchases from Penneys

Anyone who knows me knows that I love scarves.  I wear one nearly every single day and feel naked if there's nothing draped around my neck.  During the winter, I wear thicker, heavier scarves to keep me warm as the office at work is usually freezing.  However, I don't just wear scarves for warmth, so as it's now spring, I felt I needed a new stash of them to adorn my neck.

Where else to head for some season appropriate scarves that are cheap as chips than Penneys.  I picked up these four guys over the past few weeks and they were all €4 each, so you can't do much better than that.  Have a wee look at my purchases below and check out the other reasons I like to wear scarves apart from keeping oneself warm.


I like to wear scarves as a bib.  I am supremely messy and there's not a day goes by where I don't spill something all down my front.  If I'm wearing a white top, then I have a 100% hit rate on said top, so that's where scarves come in to save the day.


I like to wear scarves to cover wardrobe malfunctions.  Last year I wore a new top to work.  It was bright pink and I wore a black cardigan over it.  I went on my merry way, working up a storm and it was during the morning when I went to the loo and looked in the mirror to see my top was sheer and my bra was on full display.... I bloody know.... So thankfully I had a scarf on hand to protect my modesty and as soon as I got home, threw the top away.  It had been on sale in Penneys so I'd no qualms about firing it out.


I like to wear scarves to keep me smelling nicer for longer.  I love perfume so much and have a grand collection that will last me until the end of my days, but I still love buying more.  I love spraying whatever is the scent du jour all over me and especially onto whatever scarf I'm wearing.  It makes the smell last for ages and I like to bury my schnozz into my scarf for a good whiff.


So tell me, are you a scarfaholic?

  7. Love Penneys at the minute, I got a black floral one the other day. Complete scarfaholic here too, feel nude without one. I have 4 on rotation at the minute - is it really bad to admit that I spray really expensive perfumes on my scarves whenever I'm in a chemist and then said perfume is on the scarf for, like, weeks without having to buy it.........

    1. Sharon, I like your style, I totally do the same and sure it's a good way to make sure you like a perfume for a while before splurging for it :)
