Supporting Team GB in Style...

...with a little help from Next.

In preparation for a little thing known as the OLYMPIC GAMES, the inventive lot at Next have created two scarves so we can get all patriotic and literally 'wear' our pride when London hosts the games next month.

There are 2 designs available - the Official Team GB Scarf and the Official Paralympics GB scarf and both come in two different sizes, a small bandana size and a larger scarf size.

I have the small Paralympics GB scarf/bandana and I wanted to show you how I will be wearing it.

I'm a vintage lover and I think the small size is perfect for a little head scarf action a'la Rosie the Riveter ;)

Or of course, you can channel your inner air hostess/ goddess and give your neck a little love.

The designs on both scarves feature a hand painted Lion, reflecting the courage, determination and talent of our athletes.

The Team GB scarf features 900 illustrated figures to symbolise 900 British athletes, 14 Paralympic lions and 26 Olympic sports.

The Paralympic scarf includes 60 hands to represent the athletes' 60 million supporters as well as a map of Great Britain.

Both designs retail at £5 for the small size and £10 for the larger size, with all profits going to the British Olympic Association - an organisation that helps athletes reach their sporting potential.

I think this is a lovely way to support Britain's athletes as London hosts the Olympics this year - will you be visiting Next and wearing your pride this summer?
You can find out more by visiting Next online here.
If you purchase one of these scarves, you can win lovely prizes from Next by simply uploading a photo of yourself wearing the scarf your way. Check out the competition here.

p.s. I know I am an Aussie, and a proud one at that, but England is my adopted home so I'll be rooting for both of these great nations!

Thanks for reading ;*

*Next sent me this scarf to spread the word about these not-for-profit goodies & I was more than happy to oblige!
