Wear Your Blanket Out Today

Wear Your Blanket Out Todayfeatured

I’m toying with the idea of throwing a blanket over every single outfit this winter. Here, I draped it over a navy trench, an LBD and my new favourite thigh high boots. It’s not long until it snows now, which makes for a perfect photo backdrop, but an unfortunate temperature to pose, wear makeup and generally survive. But yay, the holidays!

    • I got several and decided to upgrade to a full poncho this year 🙂 Thank you for stopping by, Jess!

  • I love the rich blue hue against your hair! That poncho is a cozy must-have for the cooler days!

    • One of my favourite colours to wear for that reason exactly 🙂 Just getting into ponchos, whatever did I do without them?

  • I love this poncho and all the layers. Such a gorgeous fall look.

    • Thank you, Alicia. You pretty much have to layer here, or resort to puffer jackets, wich I refuse to do 😀

  • Such gorgeous, rich colors, and I love the look with the over-the-knee boots!

    • Thank you! They’ve quickly become my favourite pair of cold weather shoes 🙂

  • I am totally hooked on blanket scarves now! I wear one almost every day in lieu of a coat or jacket (I feel claustrophobic in coats, so blanket scarves are the perfect alternative for me!) I love how you styled yours over your trench, too, for an extra layer of warmth. And the darker plaid is so pleasing to my eye! You look fabulous!

    • Thank you, Shelbee! I wear one every day over a coat now that it’s so cold. Loove how snuggly they are 🙂
