My new Alexander McQueen-esque scarf.

 I love a good scarf. As winter draws in I feel I have to have a knitted one but I always get too hot and end up stuffing it in my bag. I was browsing H&M and saw this beauty. It's light weight but there's a lot of it so keeps the wind off my neck and goes perfectly with my black leather jacket!

The prettiness of the flowers against the toughness of the skulls gives it a real edge and I think it will go with everything as it can dress up or dress down lots of things. Currently I'm enjoying it with some black Topshop Leighs and the massive cream jumper I got from H&M which I showed you here! The colours are fairly neutral but I never want anything to bright as it gets colder anyway. 

 I think skulls are pretty standard on scarfs to Alexander McQueen and I would absolutely love to own an original but that's not going to happen anytime soon. I think considering this was £6.99 (#bargain) it looks a lot more expensive than it is. I think scarves do that to a lot of outfits actually and that's why they are a good investment piece. Sometimes I go months/years without wearing a certain then find I can't live without it. Am I just trying to justify buying a designer one?

I love this scarf so much I may even do a lookbook for it to show how I would wear it to different occasions for you!

If you are as in love with this as I am you can purchase it here and thank me later.
