The Olympics are just around the corner and I'm so excited! I love sport and really enjoy the whole atmosphere surrounding the Olympics! I quite simply love the Olympics, people just going for their dreams and not stopping till they get there! It’s so inspirational! I'm not going to see the Olympics but I still really want to get involved with the Olympics so I was thrilled when I got an email from Next asking if I wished to take part in the Next ''I’m supporting'' campaign. Next have designed two fabulous Paralympics GB and Official Team GB supporters' scarves. I Love these scarves because they allow us to celebrate the Olympics in style! Both of the scarves have been designed to capture the essence of the Olympics and to support all of the 900 British athletes.
I have the Official Paralympics GB scarf and I love it!
So the challenge was set, how would I style my scarf?
As the scarf isn't all that large (50cm x 50cm to be exact) but I still wanted to wear it as the focus point of the outfit, I decided to wear the scarf in my hair. I have always loved beehives, so went with that, surprisingly there easier than they look! Keeping with the red, white and blue theme I wore a bold red dress. However I didn't want to look like a union jack flag, so the tan belt just helped to balance it all out a bit.
The smaller Paralympics scarf (left) is £5 whilst the official Team GB scarf (right) is £10.
All of the profits made by the sales of these scarves gets donated to the British Olympic Association too! Both scarves are available to buy from Next nationwide in store or online!
Please all get involved in this campaign and help us to ''Wear it, Wave it, Win with it!''
