Instagram #OOTD Recreate - Zara Blanket Scarf

mustard cardigan and plaid zara blanket scarf because shanna said so

I posted this outfit on Instagram Saturday for a football and friends party hosted by one of my good friends. You ladies seemed to have liked it, so I wanted to recreate a similar, if not identical look. 

The mustard Forever 21 cardigan I am wearing in the Instagram photo is from last year, but I found a super similar one that I actually like a little better than mine. I know I have posted this Forever 21 tote at least five times, if not more, but I really have been getting that much use out of it. Sorry if you're tired of seeing it, and maybe these Vince Camuto boots too. You guys, they are both just that good.

I know the whole blanket scarf bandwagon is "crazy town" and everyone and their moms have one, but they are sooooooo warm and cozy. I wore this one from Zara a few months ago and several other times since that post. It was sold out at one time, but was so excited to see it's back in stock. I am not sure how long it will be available. I love the colors and fun change from the one that you see all over the internet...and yes, I admit, I own this one three others. Let's just hope that this warm and fuzzy trend makes it's way back next year. 

P.S. If the one from Zara ends up selling out, here is a very similar one from ASOS and another identical one here.

I adore this scarf - I need it in my life. I purchased two blanket scarves from American Eagle, and love them but this one has the perfect amount of gold in it.

I told myself to take it easy, for fear the trend will be dead next year, BUT then I reminded myself, I could just use the blanket scarf as a throw in my home decor if needed. Think about it, it's the perfect pop of pattern and color for your body, AND say that chair in the corner that just NEEDS a little something - drape it over, and use it when it's chilly in the room. Upcycle complete! :)

Such a beautiful scarf! I really like the color combo.

Great look! The blanket scarf is one of those pieces that to me is only popular in blog land. I hesitated to order one because I felt like everyone had one... and then I realized that I have never seen someone wear one outside of my computer screen, haha. I ended up getting one and it is on the way to me now.. can't wait!

Shanna I must say you are very quickly moving up to one of my favorite fashion blogs. First because you always post great sales on facebook and second because your style is classy, affordable and cute. I love this outfit. I'm all about colors still in the fall.

Yalanda said...

Those boots are it girl! Love them!

OccasionallyAJ said...

I hope blanket scarves stick around too! They are awesome for the office...cute but SO warm! I usually end up taking mine off my neck and cover my legs with it! Love the fall colors in your outfit.

Thank you!! Okay, so I totally ordered this exact scarf and wore it for the first time yesterday. Got 2 compliments from ladies in stores...and a completely dazed look from my hubby. Clearly he does not get the trend! lol

I also purchased about 6 items from Forever21 after reading reviews. I was a bit nervous because I haven't previously shopped here much. However, when the box arrived, I immediately tried everything on and loved every piece!! Thanks for this post!
