Wow, since my last post received over 3 comments, I'm going to show you one last outfit you can wear with a blanket scarf. This one is probably my favorite (I just love the colors so much!) and its great for going out. The layers help you stay warm when walking in the cold weather, while still looking cute.
The greens and blues accent each other in this very wintry look. I styled jeans with a plain white tee, and layered on some colors after to give the look some depth. Here is what I am wearing:
Top: H & M
Shoes: H & M
Jacket: Forever 21
Scarf: Forvever 21
The scarf has white, dark blue, dark green, and black incorporated throughout, and I made sure I had one article of clothing matching each color, which lets the blanket still stand out, but avoiding it looking awkward.
As you can see, I am very happy in this cozy outfit :)
Sadly, this is the end of my blanket scarf posts. I hope you enjoyed the more constant posts throughout the week, let me know in the comments if you have enjoyed the themed post week and if I should do it again. Right now, I am patiently waiting for a winter storm to hit my area . I am very excited to see some snow, maybe take a few photos in it! What are your plans this weekend? Let me know in the comments below.
I know your probably thinking, "Wait what? It's not Sunday! It hasn't even been a week since she last posted!" But, today I have a small bonus post for you, because over the weekend I wasn't able to decide what I wanted to post, so I eventually came up with the idea to spread it throughout the week. Today, I have another outfit idea to wear with a blanket scarf. If you haven't seen the original posts, 5 ways to wear a blanket scarf, then click here.
This outfit consists of more monochromatic tones, unlike the first look which was mostly blues. Personally, I would wear this look if I was thinking of being more on the dressier side. You could obviously exchange the sneakers for some booties or heels, to make it more professional. Here is where everything is from:
Top: JC Penny (kids section!)
Scarf: Forever 21
That concludes the bonus post for today. Did you enjoy it? Do you want another one? Well, I'll tell you what: if this post can get at least 3 comments by Friday, there might just be one more outfit in store for you. And yes, it includes a blanket scarf. My question for you today though is, which outfit do you like better, the sweater/cozy look from the last post, or the more dressed up look? Let me know in the comments. I hope you are all having a great week so far!
Recently I invested in a blanket scarf, which has been on my wishlist forever. I've always loved the concept of how something can be a blanket and a scarf, because I'm always cold when outside. When researching, I found the possibilities are endless with the ways you can wear them, so I thought I would share 5 ways to style a blanket scarf.
The first way to wear a blanket scarf is my personal favorite: as a shawl. It accents any outfit and keeps you warm, can it get any better? Before I show you the rest of my looks, here is where everything I am wearing is from:
Sweater: H & M
Shoes: H & M
Scarf: Forever 21
This is how I tend to wear all my scarfs, only because it has the loop around my neck to keep me warm, and lets the scarf hang down as an accent. The length of this scarf is perfect for this look, as it doesn't hang to low on the body to be a nuisance.
To wear this style all you need is to take the traditional style and tuck both ends into the loop of the scarf. It will create this braided effect that looks very professional and keeps your neck really warm.
To create this look, first you need to fold your blanket scarf into a triangle. Then twist is a few times and wrap it around your neck. It creates that classic cowboy vibe and works as a great face mask when it is windy. My scarf wasn't the perfect size for this look, so it ended up strangling me a bit, but most blanket scarves tend to be wider.
Creating this look is simple! Tie the two ends of the scarf together to create a loop, and wrap it around your neck at least twice. It creates a super easy, casual look and is a great way to handle a big scarf. Use this style if you want to have a bit more of your top showing, as it only covers the upper part of the body.
I just had my first snowfall! Earlier today, I was walking in from shopping (I might've picked up a pair of boots at the DSW sale) and I noticed a few snowflakes falling. Sooner or later it started really snowing, and now we have a light layer covering the ground. Also, I am extremely happy it is a 3 day weekend, because now I have more time to have fun in the snow ( and maybe take photos for a new blogpost!) Do you have Monday off? Let me know in the comments. I have a few bonus posts that might show up later this week, so if I can reach 3 comments by Wednesday, I have another outfit possibility to wear with a blanket scarf. Hope you have a great week!
