I’m Supporting – 2012 Paralympics

I was sent a gorgeous memento of this year’s 2012 Paralympic Games – an official scarf, designed by Next as part of their support for the London 2012 Games with profits being donated to the British Olympic Association. And I’m in good company as Kate Middleton has one too!

Next are running lots of initiatives around this and their official Olympic scarf. For instance, if you buy one, you can enter a competition to win tickets to the Olympic Tennis at Wimbledon on the 3rd August. To enter, you upload a picture of how you styled or wore it.

Additionally, Next has invited some bloggers to style the scarf their way…here’s a close up of my scarf before I show you what I did with it:

I decided to enhance my favourite handbags with it. I love this look. It’s a great way of tying together an outfit where your bag is a neutral colour or a contrasting colour. First up, my birthday LK Bennett Annina bag (last seen here)

And finally, my Coach green & white bag (amazing gift from husband)- a nod to my nationality for my Irish readers. Unfortunately, there isn’t an Irish team scarf icon sad Im Supporting   2012 Paralympics

So if you would like to support the Olympic teams and nab yourself a little piece of history, head to the Next website to pick up your Paralympic or Olympic scarf and make your handbag feel special too!

Note: my scarf was supplied to me free of charge but I was not obliged to blog about it. All content written by me (photo of the Duchess of Cambridge was supplied by the Next Media Team)

  1. It would be rude not to wear a scarf when we go to Olympic Park on 9 August :) !!

  2. The scarf looks fab on your bags. Love the LK Bennett one x
