Fashion Friday- How to Tie a Blanket Scarf

Happy Fashion Friday peeps!

It’s been a strange, smoky week in the mountains.   It’s been so dry that there are a few wildfires in the area and it’s been really smoky.  We’re far enough away where we aren’t in danger, but it’s been hard for me to be outside much with my asthma.  I know that is just a minor inconvenience and I’m mostly sad and worried for the firefighters and people with nearby homes.

On a completely different note, the Hubs and I finally picked out a car (we started shopping for it in the summer!) and are going on a road trip to pick it up this weekend.  I’m hoping to make the most of it and turn the trip into a little adventure!  I’ll try to post on Instagram Stories as we go along.

AND it’s finally been cold enough this week to KIND of wear clothes that are more fall-ish.  Scarfs and boots are one of the few good things about cold weather in my opinion!

One of my favorite trends this year is the blanket scarf.  It is back from last winter and I picked up this pink plaid one to dress up some outfits.  I love the way this $20 scarf transformed this look!  There are many ways to tie a blanket scarf, but this one is my favorite.

I found this one at Charming Charlies.  It’s available here in dark blue or the blush.  I think both colors are adorable!  Honestly I might need the blue too! haha.  I’ve been doing way to much of that lately…. 🙂  We’ll just call it retail therapy.

Remember the maroon Old Navy swing dress?  This is the same dress in black, which is absolutely one of my favorite pieces of the season.  It’s available in different colors here for less than $30, some as low as $14.  It’s in two spots on their site HERE and HERE.  Each link as different colors.

The leggings are fleece lined leggings, which are DA BOMB.  Every girl must have them in their life and my favorite black suede booties.

After I picked up my blanket scarf I had to google how to wear it, so I thought I’d give you a little demo here to save you the save trouble.  Just call me your regular ole’ problem solver.

Start by folding it in half into a square.

Then fold it corner to corner making a triangle.

Next you take the corners around your neck.

Then pull them back around to the front to secure.

    That scarf is cute and you make it look so simple. but I doubt I’d be able to do that myself. I love fleece lined leggings and have a few pairs.

    Such pretty colours on your scarf 🙂

    I’m talking about legacy on the blog right now. What it means to me. How I want the world to remember me. That and my weekly Project Sister Act Link-Up is currently live, and will be up until next Thursday, and I would so love for you to come over and join in xoxo

    This is really helpful! I have a couple blanket scarves and I never know how to tie them. I always end up knotting them at the ends and just trying to make something work! This was super great! xo

    Julie, you looked very pretty. I’m not much of a scarf person but yours looked good. I hope this weekend is better than last. I did remember you in my prayers.

      Hi Joan. Thank you so much. I am starting to feel a lot better and more optimistic. Thanks so much for caring. xoxo

    Blanket scarves are one of my all time favourite cold weather accessories! Over the years of buying and wearing scarves I feel like I tie them up in at least 20 ways – and I’m totally a creature of habit because each scarf is tied a different way 😛

      Haha! OHHH I feel ya!! I’m a creature of habit too.

    I don’t own a blanket scarf… yet, but I to love wearing scarves in general! Fall is my favorite season since I love the return of my comfy sweaters and tall boots!

    Thanks for sharing this! I always wondered what I was supposed to do with those types of scarves. I usually just wrap them around me as a blankie but that was not very fashionable lol! Glad to know how to really do it!
