Moon Cats - Checked Scarf

If there is one accessory that I love, other than a nice handbang, it has to be a scarf. Whether you're wanting to add a little extra something to an outfit or wrap up against the bitter cold of winter, you can achieve this with a scarf; they're such a practical thing to have in your wardrobe.

Moon Cats are an American company that are based in the Fashion District of New York and who specialise in a vast range of scarfs. Whether your're wanting a light weight cover up or a nice winter chunky knit, Moon Cats are sure to have something for you. With a vast range of affordable high quality scarves available in different patterns and styles, Moon Cats is the perfect website to browse if you're looking to add something new to your collection this winter.

As I have been loving Checks this season, the scarf that I chose is Checked Square which is priced at $39.95 with free delivery being offered within the USA. As soon as I noticed this scarf on the website it grabbed my attention as it is unlike anything else that I own. I either have plain scarves, Alexander McQueen skull ones or my massive navy and green Checked/Tartan one that I got last year from Zara - you know the one that every blogger had and is literally the size of a picnic blanket!

I chose this scarf as it's very autumnal and I thought that it would be lovely to wear on those days where despite it being absolutely freezing, the sky is blue and the sun is out; proving a point that it is still there and can show it's face, despite the usual grey gloomy winter sky we become accustomed to seeing.

First of all the packaging that this scarf came in was lovely and considering it came all the way from America it was within me within a week which is seriously impressive! My scarf came in a box and it was wrapped in red tissue paper with a big white Moon Cats sticker sealing it closed. Packaging and presentation is everything so I serious props to Moon Cats for sending something that was simplistically yet beautifully - sometimes, it's those small details that make a drastic difference!



My Checked Square scarf is very large and that's what I love about it - it's measurements are 56" by 56"! Due to it being longer and larger than some scarves, you can easily achieve a range of different styles with it. Whether you want to bundle it up and wrap up warm underneath it or drape it around your neck to allow it to fall down onto your thighs, this scarf looks great! Due to the colours being quite neutral. it's extremely versatile and the fact that it is made from a nice soft material means that it does not feel itchy or scratchy against your skin when it's around your neck!

I have been wearing this scarf a lot over the past week as the weather here in the UK hasn't been the best and I have needed to wrap up a little more than usual. Personally, I find that this scarf goes best with dark colours and I absolutely love wearing it with my big navy blue chunky cable knitted cardigan - the colours match perfectly!
