Today begins a three-day series on the blog! Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood and I are teaming up to share our takes on wearing blanket scarves in late winter and early spring. If you’re anything like me, you crave blanket scarves in the fall, but they begin to lose their appeal as spring fever sets in. I’m all for extending the life of any item in my wardrobe.
Truth: some of my blanket scarves are already packed away for the year, which has made my overly burdened scarf drawers very happy. The problem? I live somewhere where it’s chilly until April. And simply enough, I just like the feel of scarves around my neck. It’s like a little headrest that I get to leave on throughout the day.
So, how do you keep those blanket scarves in business after the desire to be bundled up has passed?
Option #1: be monochromatic.
I love the neutrals in Ada’s outfit. Her scarf complements the skirt and shoes so well! Be sure to check her post out:)!
(And because when your blanket scarf hangs low… you tie it in a bow;))
Monochromatic looks never go out of style. Ever. It’s slimming, it’s chic, it’s easy – is there anything else you need? Granted, this look isn’t exactly shouting out, “It’s spring!,” but it also isn’t making you think of pumpkin spice or Christmas trees. The little pop of pink helps to add an edge fitting for the brighter months of the year.
How do you keep the blanket scarves in business during this time of the year? Stop by the blog tomorrow for Ada and my second day of blanket scarf looks! Ada is also starting a link up, and we’d love to see your posts!
