Foulard de la semaine
This scarf was purchased on our first Paris trip in 2007 at one of the touristy stores on the Rue Rivoli. The colors coordinate with almost everything else in my closet.
If you've been sitting on the fence contemplating giving scarves a try, now is a great time. Great lightweight scarves are available everywhere, and at price points that won't make you regret a little experimentation. Go for a long scarf rather than a square, in lightweight materials with texture that will "grab" when you tie it (avoid slippery fabrics, which won't stay put). When you see French women wearing scarves, the look is restrained and "just threw it on," so keep it simple. Have fun!
