My New Scarf Obsession.

     Here is one of my favorite casual outfits that I wore last week in Pennsylvania! It took me a long time to hop on the blanket scarf train, but I'm so happy that I finally did. For the longest time I really didn't understand the hype over blanket scarves, they just seemed so "basic" to me and I didn't really want to wear a scarf that everyone and their mother already had! But then I actually purchased one on a whim and tried it on... and I instantly fell in love. They're so warm and comfy, and I understood immediately why they're back on trend for this year's winter season! I really enjoy wearing my blanket scarf as a cozy shawl as well. 

     I wore this casual outfit for a day of driving and sightseeing in Pennsylvania's Amish country with my best friend and her family and friends! It was the perfect balance of warm and comfortable but still cute! I love the look of a plaid scarf worn over a striped top- so classic.


     Are you on board with the blanket scarf trend? And did all of you have a nice Thanksgiving and Black Friday? I can't wait to share more soon about my trip to PA!

  1. Oooh so cute!! I just saw a really nice blanket scarf when out shopping this weekend, but I didn't pick it up. I love the trend though, since I'm such a scarf person! You look beautiful in these photos! So glad you had a great Thanksgiving break! :)

  3. I do love a good blanket scarf.
    I don't wear scarves too often -- but when I do, it's a blanket scarf.

  8. You look so pretty in these pictures! I love blanket scarves (I picked up a new one on Black Friday), but for some reason Alabama has decided to warm up so I can't wear it just yet...maybe soon!
