Having just celebrated Mother's Day, I've got women on my mind. I mean the women in my world are pretty phenomenal. They run businesses, they raise families, they plan, they schedule, they juggle, they dream, they dance, they drink red wine (some more than others), they love, they fight for and sometimes, occasionally they sleep. But not a whole lot. I mean women are crazy hey! We fit in work and study and business and travel and love and home. We grow babies, we birth babies, we feed babies and then we raise those babies.

They have got to be one of the most versatile and practical items on any self-respecting wanderuster's packing lists - scarves can be used for anything from sleeping under to hiding behind, head covering to bikini modifying, waterbottle carrying in Cambodia to small child carrying in Africa, beach lounging to mountain trekking.
But if you're anything like me, actually using a scarf as an item of clothing is the most challenging of all scarf incarnations. I know in my heart that they are the missing link in converting my travelling jeans and tanks into passable theatre going attire, but I cannot for the life of me wear a scarf without looking like a cotton caterpillar is trying to spin its chrysalis over my head. Regardless, I have always packed one, because the scarf's multifaceted practicality inevitably trumps my vanity.
But now, even that most elusive of scarf uses - accessorising - is about to be mine! Because I have found Wendy. Feast your eyes on this, my scarf-challenged friends!
There's no holding me back now - the scarf world is my cotton, wool and fast-drying-polyester oyster!
See you around, wanderluster! I'll be the one elegantly sporting this stylish rose and lavender scarf - and not just as a makeshift beach towel.
