Another Way

how to wear a zara tartan blanket scarf

Yes, I am wearing "the" tartan Zara blanket scarf that has been seen on almost every blog, Instagram and pinned Lord knows how many times. I still love it and all the other oversized scarves that I own. You can take a peek at my other posts wearing them here and here. 

I have been playing with alternative ways to wear and style this ever-so-popular accessory and wanted to share the idea with you guys since you most likely own one too. Instead of wrapping or tying the scarf, I chose to neatly drape it around my neck and sort of tuck it under my quilted vest. I opted to belt the vest and scarf to create a less bulky look and to keep both in place. The warmth of the blanket scarf is still there, but this option allows your neck to have a little breathing room.

PSSSSST...Here is a GREAT website with some of the BEST plaid blanket scarf options + some fun jewelry too!

This is a perfect Thanksgiving Day outfit, one for holiday family photos, travel or for Christmas day.

And yes, I am wearing my Spanx denim leggings and Vince Camuto (on SUPER sale) again. I just can't help. I finally found a pair of denim that do not lose shape or form after a few hours. I also do not have constantly adjust and pull my waist up to avoid sagging booty. The boots, well, they just speak for themselves and go with just about anything and everything.

Everytime I see that scarf I still swoon :) I think it's that good and you look gorgeous in it. Love belting my scarves, and your version under the vest is a wonderful idea. Takes away the bulk, and agree a little breathing room is always great. Hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving with your family dear, XOXO, Elif
