All Bundled Up

IMG_1413

The title of this blog post is very misleading because I have been anything but bundled up the past few days.  The East Coast is experiencing the warmest December ever.  I’ve only worn my winter coat once, but like I said in my previous post, I am not complaining. I have no desire to see snow or bear the frigid temperatures of a normal northeast winter.  Although, it has been warmer than usual, it is still cold enough to wrap myself up in my favorite blanket scarf.

The plaid blanket scarf trend has exploded this winter season.  Now everyone is keeping warm with this stylish accessory.  The best part about blanket scarves is they are so large you can style them in many different ways.  You can wear it as a shawl, just around your neck, loop it once or a few times, belt it, or my personal favorite is folding it into a triangle and looping it around my neck.  The triangle fold makes the scarf less bulky.

The star of my outfit is my plaid blanket scarf from Ruby Claire Boutique.  The warm, rich colors go with all of my favorite pieces in my closet, so styling this scarf was a no brainer.  Plus, the scarf is so comfy and cozy; you won’t want to take it off.  For more stylish clothes and accessories, head over to Ruby Claire Boutique.  You won’t be disappointed.

I feel like Superman, I mean Superwoman in my long cardigan from Forever 21.  Whenever the wind blows, my sweater turns into a cape.  Too bad it can’t make me fly, but my sweater certainty scores major style points.  The neutral, cream color is so versatile, the sweater looks great with jeans, leggings, or layered over a dress.

Today there is a brisk breeze, so I am wearing a basic white long sleeve shirt from Old Navy under my sweater.  It adds just the right amount of warmth.

You can’t go wrong with a medium wash pair of jeans.  They go with everything.  I am loving my denim jeans from the brand Just Black, purchased at Ruby and Jenna.

Even though I am 5’-4”, I need some extra height today while wearing my sweater.  I am obsessed with heeled boots this winter because they make me look taller and my legs look longer, plus anytime I wear heels I always feel like a superstar.  I purchased these shoes from Marshalls on one of my shopping study breaks two weeks ago.  I was in desperate need of retail therapy so I am glad Marshalls had some great finds.

Only 2 more days until Christmas…when did that happen?  I think it’s a good time to start wrapping gifts and picking out my outfits for the holiday festivities.  Stay tuned for more style posts.  Hope everyone made it on Santa’s nice list 😉 HO HO HO!

    I’m totally in love with long cardigans too; I scored a good one from AllSaints and it’s lasted me so many seasons. I’m the same height as you and yes I always feel like I need a boost when wearing long silos! 😉

    Loving that blanket scarf! I have one just like yours and I don’t wear it often enough. But you’ve inspired me to take it out the closet!
