Festival Chic!

Ok, so I'm probably not going to get to one of the big music festivals this summer (boo!) but if I was, I'd definitely be taking one of Handmaid's gorgeous scarfs. These are the work of Julie Mills, who creates wonderful designs which are then digitally printed on silk satin, before being finished by handstitching. My favourite is the Blue Bird Scarf, shown below, which is also available in pink.

A scarf like this is an invaluable piece of kit for an outdoor festival as you can wear it in so many different ways, including as a bandana if the sun gets too much or if all that camping has given you a 'bad hair day'! Also silk satin is a lovely lightweight material and so can be packed easily... in fact, why not just go for the blue AND the pink?!
If you're a fan of Julie's work you can check out her website or follow her on twitter.


  1. Gosh, it's super cute! Off to check out her site!

  2. I'm loving scarves at the moment, although slightly worried that it might be a young 20s thing to wear not old 20s however, these are great!!

  3. Well I'm 40 this summer, so where do I fit in?! Extremely old 20s? Still 18 in my head... :)

  4. Beautiful scarves!

    I'm going to go and have look at Julie's shop now, I don't think I've seen her work before, it looks really lovely.

  5. I am also a fan of these scarves! The little birdies are so sweet, they look like they're kissing <3
