I think pashminas are pretty underrated. I tend to carry one whenever I'm travelling, if it's a bit draughty on the train or plane they're great from wrapping up with, they roll up to make a great pillow too. If Poppy is feeling tired I'll wrap her up in one as a blanket, if it's raining and I don't have brolly I'll pop one over my head, I might look like a complete granny, but it's better than having soggy flat hair! And you may think I'm a bit daft, but I make sure they have a spritz of perfume on, that way if I'm feeling sad, it's a great comfort, or if its a bit smelly (which public transport often is) I'll wrap up in it and have a sniff!
The possibilities are endless! In sunnier weather they are great to pop over your shoulders if you're getting a bit burnt, and then there's as they're actually supposed to be used! As a scarf/shawl! When I worked in a classroom setting I was always conscious of not being too exposed, so I would often wear one to work to cover up the old cleavage!
Anyway, I've blathered on enough. Safe to say, I'm a big fan of the pashmina.
With Mother's Day coming up, they always make a great gift, especially if you're a bit stuck on what to get. Eldragonfly have a great selection of colours and styles. You can check out their designs on their amazon page here > Eldragonfly Barcelona.
