Hermes scarf ~ simply casual

Simple works best when it comes to scarves...
Scarves do not need to be tied in fancy ways to be beautiful.
Choose a scarf pattern that you love and one that will add some interest to your wardrobe.

Vintage, antique, consignment and charity shops are a great place to find scarves.
If you want to spend more, the sky is the limit!
Most designer lines offer scarves.

Hermes is probably one of the most popular brands. They offer new scarves in a variety of patterns and colours designed and signed by the artists who create them. The clerks are very adept at draping and colour matching them for you...they can also offer tying instructions and there are small booklets printed by Hermes and included when you buy one of their scarves to show a variety of ways to wear your new scarf!

Today I wore my very first Hermes scarf which Mr. HB purchased with me in San Francisco.

It is a hot sunny day here so I did not want anything too high up on my neck.
I opted for the loose cowboy...
I am able to do this knot without thinking.
It's a classic.

Lovely bright colours for Spring and Summer.

For more scarf posts from the past 
please look at the very bottom right hand side of my blog and you will see Hermes Scarves as a tag...
there are about 30 posts on scarves 
if you have some time to spend you will be able to view them all.

Hope that your week is off to a great start.


  1. What a beautiful scarf, such pretty colours!

  2. Beautiful colors in that scarf, hostess! I agree that keeping the tie simple is the best way to show off these lovely prints.

  3. Congrats on your beautiful Hermes scarf. Enjoy!

  4. Gorgeous scarf. Love the color palette!

  5. Gorgeous scarf and perfect on you. I have found the carré is just too heavy for in summer heat (unless I'm in AC all day). I either tie my scarf to a bag or wear the much, much lighter Hermès triangle or cotton scarves.

  6. Oh and another great thing is- they always fit!

  7. If I owned a Single scarf, this would be it! Those colours are so me.

  8. Gorgeous motif and color - suits you very well!

  9. What a lovely scarf! Having purchased my first Hermes scarf in 2012, I am fascinated by their beauty and stories. I'd love to know the name of this scarf. I enjoy your blog immensely. Marian

    1. Hello Marian,
      Welcome to my humble blog!
      The scarf is named "les jardins d'andalousie"...which roughly translates to The Gardens of Andalousie ~ which is a region in southern Spain.
      If you click on the link to the post about the purchase of the first Hostess's Hermes you will learn a wee bit more about the experience!

  10. Lovely scarf -- and I like the "cowboy" tie. Back in the day, that was how we tied our Girl Scout neckerchiefs, and then attached the pin to the very center of the knot. Hermes trumps the old GSA look any time!

  11. Wouldn't it be fun if Hermes designed neckerchiefs for the Scouts?
    I think that the troops would be very proud to wear their scarves!

  12. One of the prettiest patterns and color palettes I've ever seen.

    1. Thank you Kathy!
      Mr. HB picked it out and he has a very discerning eye for design and colour.

  13. Hi cowgirl,the colours look very Summery on you.
