Scarf: SoCal Gems Blazer: Banana Republic / Jeans: Genetic Denim / Booties: Sam Edelman / Sunnies: Karen Walker / Bag: Carla Mancini

One of my favorite outfits to wear to school in the Fall is a blazer, booties, and a huge scarf. It’s so easy and comfortable for sitting on the rug with the kids all day, but the blazer still makes the look polished. This scarf is absolutely delicious in person, and it’s on sale for under $25!! I’m also in love with Carla Mancini bags, and I get them at a discount whenever they’re on HauteLook (they’re sold out now, but check back every now and then if you’re interested!) Hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!!

the blanket scarf

I’ve been obsessed with scarves for quite a while. Silk, printed, solid, textured…hanging from your neck or from your favorite bag… the fact of the matter is, any way you style them, they have the power to make any outfit look and feel effortless – which is, of course, the # 1 goal. They also afford you the opportunity to play with prints without feeling like Ms. Frizzle (teacher friends, I know you know who I’m talking about…) So when the blanket scarf craze came about, it’s no wonder I was eager to jump on the trend. Check out my latest obsession below… (and check out the video of how I tied it on YouTube).

Video disclaimer: I have no idea how to edit videos. My brother (who’s in the film industry) would probably pass out if he saw what a terrible job I did. But I seriously doubt he reads my blog, so I should be in the clear! On second thought, maybe he should read my blog…Jake? You there?
