How We Wear: Blanket Scarf




Blanket Scarves. They're kind of everywhere. Which is why my stylish colleagues at PMHQ have joined together for another style challenge to show you how we wear blanket scarves! Read on to see how I styled mine and find out how you can join in on this link-up!



How We Wear: Blanket Scarf


My white skinny jeans have been on heavy rotation this fall. It's very much the opposite of my usual go-to fall colors (e.g. black and grey). And it just so happens that white denim went perfectly with my light grey and white striped blanket scarf. Since the scarf is such a statement itself, I kept the rest of the look simple with a plain white tee, a long grey cardigan, and my favorite booties. I accented the look with a few pieces of simple jewelry and a subtle hue of lipstick.

A Duster & A Bucket Bag




Two items on my fall/winter shopping list were long duster cardigans and a great bucket bag.

The maxi cardi was easy. This soft black one basically jumped into my cart during a Target run. The bag was a little more difficult. I had been looking for one since last fall but was having a hard time finding the look I wanted at the price I wanted. After about a year of searching, I found this fantastic vintage leather bag on Poshmark. And since it was on Poshmark, I got an amazing deal on it. Winning!

Puffer Vest




Every time I wear a vest, I think about that Demetri Martin comedy bit:

“I think vests are all about protection. Like the life vest protects you from drowning. And the bulletproof vest protects you from getting shot. And the sweater vest protects you from pretty girls. Leave me alone…can’t you see I’m cold just RIGHT HERE? There’s a narrow cold front sweeping through Chicago, dress appropriately. I’ve got these giant fat arms and a skinny torso, what should I wear?!”

But really, vests are kinda perfect for the Bay Area fall. I really want to pile on fall layers, but it’s not really chilly enough for that. The puffer vest is just the right compromise to get the layered look without getting overheated.

I wore mine over a polka dot shirt and skinny jeans. Since puffer vests aren’t exactly the most figure flattering, I decided to try and combat that by belting it with a leopard print belt. Love me some polka dot paired with leopard print!
