The Blanket Scarf

 
I was so excited when I arrived home from the mall on Friday to find my Brina Box Blanket Scarf waiting for me on my doorstep. I had ordered it a couple weeks ago, but with the large demand of blanket scarves for fall, they told me to expect at least 2 weeks for delivery. It was well worth the wait because it's really nice quality and very soft. With the weather starting to drop in the 518 I was anxious to wear it, and had been brainstorming so many items I could pair it with. This scarf is definitely going to be one of my fall wardrobe staples.

Scarf Brina Box // Top Michael Kors, old (love this Gap version) // Jeans Gap

Bag Dooney & Bourke, last season (here is this seasons)

Ways to wear the blanket scarf:
  • Ditch the fall coat and pair it with an oversized chunky cable knit sweater like this one for chillier days.
  • Try pattern play like I did and wear it over a striped tee like this tee or this one! Not looking to mix patterns just yet? A classic chambray top adds extra texture to the plaid pattern.
  • Use it as a shawl over a basic white tee and ripped black jeans like Consuelo did. I'm definitely trying to recreate this look next!
  • Use it as an outerwear accessory and wear it over my new favorite Field Jacket.
Flats J Crew Factory, old (other colors available here)

Side Note: I'm obsessed with these J Crew Factory Anya suede ballet flats. They super comfortable and I have them in 5 different pairs because once I find a comfortable flat that bends with my feet I buy them in bulk!


How are you wearing your blanket scarf?
