I have always loved neck ournements. You all know about my
obsession soft spot for necklaces, but everything started when I was young(er) with scarves and carrés. Just like a sparkling piece of costume jewelry, they can be a sophisticated touch on the most basic outfit, they can add a pop of colour to any ensemble, and - as a bonus - they keep you stylishly warm. My love affairs with this accessory has recently been 'revamped' thanks to this wonderful embroidered Altea scarf (one of my favourite Christmas gifts) and to the discovery of the Faliero Sarti's boutique in Forte Dei Marmi (stay tuned for more updates on the scarf front).
Travel tip: these pictures were taken by my dad at La Bellone, a 17th century maison with one of the most spectacular Baroque facades in Brussels. This is is a truly hidden gem as you would never guess that such a beautiful monument is situated where it is, i.e. in a courtyard of another building covered by a glass roof. This is worth a detour if you decide to visit the Belgian capital!
