Today’s high in St Augustine is 87, tomorrow it is 86, by next weekend it is supposed to be 82. That is about as close to Fall temperatures it will get in Florida for awhile. However, I choose to continue on my Fall Fashion topics. Today we are debating the blanket scarf.
My first thought is ADORABLE but it is quickly followed by my second thought TOO MUCH FABRIC. You are probably thinking that I am not making any sense. How can I think the look is adorable while also saying it is too much fabric? Well I am not one to wear things that are bunched up around my neck. I love a nice fall/ winter scarf but these blanket scarfs are a lot of scarf to have around your neck and although it is adorable, I prefer a little less. I also think there is a thin line between acceptably cute and looking like you literally took a blanket from your couch and wrapped it around your neck.
In my opinion, the first two photos show blanket scarfs that are a little too much fabric. I prefer something like this next photo with the black and white scarf. This one is still classified as a blanket scarf and has that over-sized & cozy look but it doesn’t look like it is consuming her. Of course the way you tie it or wrap it can completely change the look so maybe the key is just finding the best method.
All I know is as I write this, I have on a sleeveless shirt and flip flops and can not wait to put the heat behind us and grab a pair of boots! Until then I will continue to search the internet and pinterest for the most current Fall styles and envy those of you who may actually get to wear them before Christmas. 🙂
