Trend Spin Linkup - Scarves + 6 Ways to Wear a Blanket Scarf

On Me:  Jeans c/o // Top // Vest c/o // Scarf c/o // Pouch // Watch c/o 
On Leighton:  Pants // Tunic // Flats // Bow c/o 

Thanks for stopping by the Trend Spin Linkup today.  The theme is scarves.  We've started to have some cooler weather here and there, but soon enough, scarves will be a huge staple in my wardrobe almost every day.  I don't know about y'all, but when I wear scarves I have a habit of only wearing them one or two different ways.  But there are SO many different ways to wear them so I wanted to show my 6 favorite (and easy!) ways to wear them.   I've included pictures so you can see exactly how to tie this pretty plaid blanket scarf.  And if you have any questions, just leave them in the comment section below and I'll be happy to answer!  = )  Leighton and I decided to do a little coordinating last weekend.  I wore these gray skinnies with my new lantern sleeve blouse (love!), my longline vest and this adorable little pouch from Dagne Dover.  Leighton wore her faux leather leggings, this adorable plaid tunic that matches my scarf and some gray lace up flats.  And since then, it's been in the 80's all the week lol!!  Which way is your favorite way to wear a blanket scarf?

  12. Love your outfit! And how you styled the scarf!!!

  13. Being only 5ft tall, I tend to steer clear of blanket scarves because they tend to be far too overwhelming for my frame. I do think, however, that I might try wearing one as a dress maybe? :) you look amazing in yours, my friend.

  14. With so many ways to style one - why wouldn't you want to add one to your closet?! Love it!
