OK then I vote for the first one. Although I do like both I think the first is, I dunno, softer. While it has the off-white border it also has the white horsy bit so would be great with both. The stronger blue will pick up the new Miss Kelly and the greyish/taupey parts could make it a little more trans-seasonal.
Perfect for now but also very do-able with fall shades
I'm a little biased toward the 1st one because I, personally, can't wear much turquoise which looks like one of the colors in the 2nd shot. The 1st colorway has no yellow - it's all creamy white, light blue and the stamp is in shades of grey/dove. I'll wear this one as a belt with jeans, as a pop of color with all black and as an accent with white.
i honestly prefer the 1st one....the border complements the entire design (it makes the design more stand out),IMO and when the scarf is folded, the border makes it more felexible in matching with the outfits.
