How to choose a scarf….

 Yes, finally after a record cold March and April so far today spring arrived. We hit about 50 today and I’ve been outside in the sun sweeping in our front yard and removing dead leafs from our strawberry plants. Later this week we will hit the 60’s. Oh joy.

Endelig er våren her etter en lang kald vinter. I dag var det 10 grader og sol, ryktet sier at det skal bli 15-16 grader mot slutten av uken. O lykke. I dag har jeg vært ute å kostet og fjernet døde blader fra jordbærplantene.

Haven’t blogged for a while, there has been no photo shoots lately, but hopefully now that spring has come and the days are longer Kari and Kari will team up again to do some photo shoots. Now it’s actually warm enough to wear some spring outfits.

Det er en stund siden jeg blogget nå, men vi har ikke tatt bilder på en stund. Nå som våren endelig er her og dagene er lengre og lysere så får Team Kari & Kari komme på banen igjen. 

In the mean time it has to be some tea cup selfies from me. This is how I take my selfies. Today I’ll show you some spring scarves I brought home yesterday.

I mellomtiden får jeg bruke noen tekopp Selfies. Her  er en link til hvordan jeg tar selfiene mine. I dag vil jeg vise noen skjerf jeg hadde med hjem fra en tur på Vestkanten i går.

The dress is one of my few black items left in my wardrobe, I really like it, it’s very soft and comfortable and I like the fit of it. It’s from Desiners Remix. The shoes are from Nude of Scandinavia and are some of my favorite shoes. When wearing black I need to put a scarf in one of my best colors close to my face.

This yellow scarf is from Lindex, and I really like both the size and the texture of it. The price is also very pleasant NOK 149,- ($19) However for me the colors are a little off and it washes me out a bit. So even if I do like it I’m not keeping it. It’s also polyester so it can be a bit to hot to wear when temperatures rises a bit more.

Dette gule skjerfet er fra Lindex, jeg liker både størrelsen og teksturen på det. Prisen er det heller ikke noe å si på 149,- kroner. Men fargene er litt feil for meg og jeg blir litt utvasket i dem, så dette leverer jeg tilbake.

This redorange and off white scarf is also from Lindex from their Holly and Whyte collection. I really like the orange/red color and the mix of stripes and flowers in the pattern, but the white is a bit to white for me.  However it’s also an inexpensive scarf NOK 149,- ($19) and it’s 100% cotton which means I can try to dye it in tea. If I dye it in tea the white might get the more yellow cream color which suits me. Definitely worth a try.

Dette rødoransje er også fra Lindex. Jeg liker miksen mellom striper og blomster i mønsteret, men det hvite er litt for hvitt for meg. Dette koster også 149,- det er i 100% bomull så dette har jeg lyst å prøve å farge med te. Da får det hvite forhåpentligvis en mer kremhvit farge. Det er nå verd et forsøk.

This tangerine and moss green scarf is 100% silk and from  Unmade Copenhagen. It’s a more expensive scarf  NOK 699,- ($90) actually not to bad for a silk scarf. The size is perfect and the colors are spot on. If you look closely at the pics you will see it gives my pale skin some color. So compared to the other two which washes me out a bit, this one makes me look a more fresh. I have very little make up on and you can almost say that the right colors is the best make up you can get. Last spring I wouldn’t even considered this scarf, I wouldn’t in a million years imagined it would suit me.

Dette silkeskjerfet i oransje og mosegrønt er fra Unmade Copenhagen og koster 699,- Størrelsen er perfekt og fargene er helt spot on. Hvis dere ser litt nærmere på bildene så ser dere at dette skjerfet gir meg mer farge enn de andre. Jeg har veldig lite sminke på her, man kan nesten si at riktige farger er den beste sminken man kan bruke. I fjor vår hadde jeg ikke en gang vurdert dette skjerfet, for jeg hadde ikke i min villeste fantasi trodd at jeg ville kle disse fargene.

Having some exiting things going on now. I’m attending a 8 week course with the master of accessories Jennifer at  Mapp Craft Tiny Closet I have no idea how it will be, but I guess it will be awesome. It’s a Beta version and her first go at something like this.  We’re also getting a new kitchen in May. I will also attend another course in May, I will tell you more about it another time.

Det blir noen spennende uker fremover, jeg skal delta på et online kurs med den fabelaktige Jennifer fra Mappcraft Tiny closet. Det er et helt nytt konsept så det blir spennende. Jennifer er en mester med tilbehør. Og så får vi nytt kjøkken i mai en gang, det gleder jeg meg skikkelig til. Skal også delta på et annet kurs, men det kan jeg fortelle mer om en annen gang. 

 

Until next time

  1. Kari, I love all of the scarves with this dress! Perhaps, you could have a pattern made from the dress. This way, you could have it made in different colors such as a brown or khaki colour.

    I look forward to your next installment!

    Happy Spring!
