Isn't this year such a good one to be British? (Weather aside) I can't remember the last time I felt this Patriotic, especially as the lead up to the Olympic season is upon us! I can't wait for the games to begin even though I'm still a little sad that unfortunately I didn't manage to get any tickets. But hey, here's to supporting Team GB at home and what better way to do it than with the help of the Next supporter scarves!
As the official clothing and homeware sponsor for the London 2012 games, Next, in support of both the Olympic and Paralympic teams have a range of official merchandise available that will be a real memento of this summer. When they contacted me to see if I wanted to get involved in their 'Wear it, Wave it, Win with it' campaign, of course I jumped at the chance and was sent the official Paralympic scarf to see how I would style it up.
I decided to spruce up my Miss Selfridge cross body box clasp bag, and tie the scarf to the handle. It was a great way to liven up my simplistic outfit that day and really represent British heritage!
The scarves are available in either Large, 90 cm x 90 cm (£10) or Small, 50cm x 50cm (£5), and support either the Olympic (White scarf) or Paralympic (Blue Scarf) teams. The paralympic scarf features a hand painted lion and the Olympic scarf features 900 figures to represent the 900 athletes of Team GB. They're a great way to fly the flag for Britain especially with the profits being donated to the British Olympic and Paralympic association.
