Striped Blanket Scarf

It’s kind of scary how every year there is one day when it suddenly cools down and everyone stops freaking out about the heat and humidity and immediately begins to panic about the “epic winter” we’re always expected to get. #NewEnglandProbs.

I, for one, am so sick of my summer clothes and have been waiting very patiently to wear this blanket scarf. A few nights ago, it was extra chilly so I coerced my husband into driving 30 minutes away to get ramen at my favorite noodle bar in New England. We tried to sit outside but even with the scarf, the breeze was too cold. And I loved it!

Let’s talk about this look though. Although this particular scarf is currently sold out, I have a few other favorites that are very similar like this checked print, this striped one, and this plaid version. If blanket scarves ever go out of style, I’m pretty sure that I’ll shrivel up and die. I wore it on top of this tunic which I have now bought in three colors (black, olive, and white). It’s only $42 and perfect for layering.

    I love this scarf, Julia! Wish it was a little cooler so I could break out mine. And thanks again for the hair advice! I chopped mine off, and I love it.

    Now, if we could just get that cool breeze to arrive down here in Kansas City, we’d be in business! I’m beyond read for fall and I’m anxious to wear the pieces I’ve picked up over the past few weeks 🙂 I love the gray and camel together!
