A Ted Baker Scarf-Based French 5-Piece Wardrobe

You don't have to follow the Pantone colors - make your own very personal "French 5-Piece Wardrobe" by starting with something that has some real "whappage" in your life!

For me, that might often be a lovely Ted Baker London scarf. (No, I have absolutely no business relationship with them... sigh...)

You go shopping - see the scarf - and the path is clear! A couple of simple, timeless garments, classic earrings, and a summery tote, and your spring is ready to start.

Imagine if you were devoted to wearing black and white - you had this lovely 10-piece Common Wardrobe available for spring. (Yes, you've seen this wardrobe before...)

You would already have a wealth of lovely outfits:

But then you bring your new blush-hued pieces to your wardrobe... What lovely options you have NOW!

I love to see the way the new outfits come together... So many possibilities from a very manageable wardrobe. This would be an excellent way to pack for a spring get-away...

  1. I love this so much! Too bad the scarf is sold out :(
    This is exactly the color scheme I'm shooting for this spring/summer. I'm really liking this warm-toned light pink. Sort of a pinky-nude color. Well done Janice!

  2. Oh yes! This pink speaks my language! Such pretty pieces. Nordstrom speaks my language too, I could lose several months of my lifetime on that site.
    Your blog must pack a punch for stores, sales-wise, that beautiful scarf is already sold out 😢. Loving this series, Janice... you may have already guessed that. Hugs, x.

  3. Me three! Love both the color and the concept. Keep them coming.

  4. Ted Baker do some lovely scarves, although I’m not convinced by their “scarf cape” idea.
