I did it you guys! I actually did it! I finally discovered something about the falling temperatures that doesn’t make me want to scream and shout (and let it all out… and scream and shout and… sorry, sometimes Britney breaks just happen). It’s no secret at this point that colder weather turns me into a grumpy rage monster, so anything that alleviates a little of my abominable snowman blues is always welcome. So, imagine my unadulterated glee when I discovered this season’s hottest trend: blanket scarves. You guys… they’re like blankets that are socially acceptable to wear outside- This is my DREAM. I mean, you know how much I love oversized accessories that make a statement (View evidence of my necklace problem here and here), but now I can get that same drama from something with actual utility! (I know, whoa right?)
My favorite place to find these giant bundles of joy also happens to be one of my new favorite boutiques here in the STL. Paisley Boutique has an amazing selection of cozy scarves in color palettes that are actually manageable (unlike some other plaids where one of these colors is very clearly not like the others and therefore very difficult to wear). Added bonus? These babies are soft! Like, curl up at your desk and take a nap soft (not that I have ever done that… but I could). So I suggest we all get used to the idea that I will be swaddled in plaid for the foreseeable future, because baby, it’s cold outside.
