Wardrobe Re-Wear: Blanket Scarf

As someone who loves fashion, I love Instagram.  It’s one of my top places to scout out trends that I want to try.  Hence, the beginning of my love affair with the blanket scarf.  Everybody has been getting their hands on these, and I had to have one, but was unwilling to pay $25-35.  Luckily, one of my IG friends tipped me off about them on eBay for $12.99 (here it is for $11.99)!
Anyways, blanket scarves are so versatile–you can dress them up or dress them down, a
nd wear them with a variety of different outfits!  My friend, Lee, who blogs over at Legalee Blonde, also loves the blanket scarf, so we decided to team up to bring you a Wardrobe Re-Wear featuring it!  I’m styling the blanket scarf as a shawl, below, and Lee is styling it as it was meant to be worn.  Head on over to her blog to see her full outfit and get the details!
Tunic: Maurices, $5.50 (no longer available)
Leopard Tassel Necklace: Purple Peridot, approx. $15 (similar, $12.99)
Ponte Pants: Joe Fresh from JCP, $15 with coupon
Shoes: DSW (similar, $14.99)
I paired my blanket scarf with a burgundy tunic and ponte pants.  Burgundy is a great color for the fall, and ponte pants are a must-have (thanks, Katie, for raving about them)!  Ponte pants are like leggings, but thicker.  They hold you in better and keep you warmer. Win-win in my book.  To use my blanket scarf as a shawl,  I simply folded it in half (into a triangle) and wrapped it around my shoulders.

I’m staring at my phone because I was using the remote viewfinder to take my own pics for the very 1st time!  Chalking it up as a success!
To get that comfortable, yet put-together look, I paid attention to details.  The tassel necklace is a perfect way to fill the space in-between the sides of the scarf.  And leopard + plaid is one of the biggest trends of the season, so the shoes didn’t take a lot of thought.
Now that you see how I styled mine, head on over to Lee’s blog, Legalee Blonde, to see how she styled hers–so on trend!
What’s your thoughts on the blanket scarf?  Perfect or too big?  Will you be sporting one this winter???

Nice to meet you!

    You said it – ponte pants hold you in 🙂 Glad I convinced you to snag a pair! Those pants look great on you! And I've added "blanket scarf" and "tassle necklace" to my wish list. They are perfect for Fall! Love the whole look.
