It’s a Blanket, It’s a Scarf, It’s a Vest

The blanket scarf trend has officially swept the nation! 
When you make a soft & cozy blanket an actual fashion accessory, you know that I’m interested. 
These over-sized scarves could literally serve as blankets (they’re huge!), which makes styling them somewhat tricky.  But what makes them so much fun, is that there are countless ways to wear them.
Today, I’m sharing an unexpected way to style the blanket: as a vest!

We all know how easy it is to throw a scarf on, wrap it around once & you’re good to go.
While that’s great & all for keeping your neck warm … sometimes it just gets hot! {Especially when you live in Texas … & you still want to dress for cold weather when it is not in fact .. cold.}
I love the way a blanket scarf looks simply hanging down in front and cinched at the waist with a belt.  This simple trick keeps your bulky scarf in place all day, & kind of makes it look like a vest, too! Double win.

Whenever I try this look, I like to use a skinny belt, as thicker ones make everything look a bit bulkier than it should.

(I love this black tied leather belt option, only $40 at
Nordstrom. & if you’re a Tory Burch
fan, this one would look so cute cinched around a scarf too!)

Most blanket scarves feature big, bright & bold prints.
So naturally you’re going to want to pair them with something simple.  (For me it’s mostly a gray tee with jeans
& boots!)
I wanted to dress my scarf up for the holidays so I chose
this off the shoulder black midi dress from Boohoo.  I recently stumbled upon Boohoo, on online
shopping destination that ships all over the world. I’m loving their huge
collection of basics & edgier pieces, all at a really great price point
too!
Case in point, these aptly named “Barely There
Heels” (that also go-with-everything) are only $44 from Boohoo!  (A steal compared to their Steve Madden
look-a-likes!) 

Everything is also an extra 10% off today too, use the code EXTRA10!

While my colorful green plaid scarf was purchased from francesca’s not too long ago, it has sadly sold out! (It might still be in stores though!)
I’ve linked a few similar options below as well as the rest
of the look … just in case you were interested! 

Now that it’s officially December, I’ve started to listen to
holiday music on the regular.  My
favorite right now is the “Folksy Christmas” playlist on Spotify.  Has anyone checked out Spotify’s holiday
playlists yet!? There are so many to choose from! It’s a Christmas Music Lover’s
dream!
As always, thanks for stopping by the blog!
