Return of the Blanket Scarf

Today I am teaming up with the beautiful Kara of the blog Mrs. Mess to share our favorite ways to wear a blogger favorite - the blanket scarf. I am so glad that Kara found me in the blogging world! It is so nice to connect with other bloggers who have a similar aesthetic and view on style. We both strive to share pieces with our readers that are accessible, affordable, and practical for the every day girl. I love that when she sent me pictures of her outfit for this post we both included similar pieces without even planning it. We clearly both have a love for the mix of leopard and plaid! Be sure to check out Kara's blog, Mrs. Mess, and make sure to follow her along on Instagram.

To say I love my Zara scarf is an understatement. At first I felt totally ridiculous with it on because it can be very overwhelming in size, but the colder it got, the more I fell in love with it! Last year I was lucky enough to receive this one for Christmas. I tried and tried to get on the waiting list for the camel colored one, but unfortunately was unable to get my hands on it. I had total FOMO this year when I saw that Zara brought this style of scarf back, and sure enough... missed it again! I did recently pick up this oversized plaid scarf from Target over the weekend, and although it's about half the width of the Zara version, it is definitely a great option.

Zara Blanket Scarf (last year's version, grab this one and this one before they're gone!)
H&M Blazer (old, this year's version here)
3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Top (old)
Sam & Libby Leopard Loafers (old, love this pair from Sole Society)
Chanel Purse
Warby Parker Crosby Eyeglasses (no longer available, the Winston are almost identical)

  3. I love the color scheme of this outfit! And gosh dang, those blanket scarves are so perfect for fall. You look great! :)

  4. So we clearly have the same taste/style - not only did I wear an outfit just like this on my blog today, but I have that same H&M blazer, but in maroon!!! I love it in green - so pretty, it works great with this scarf!

  5. I love blanket scarves! I found the cutest plaid one at Target a couple weeks ago. My boyfriend's mom bought me two beautiful Zara ones as well! I love the forest green color of yours!
