The Plaid Blanket Scarf

I don't know about you, but I am nearly always cold in the winter time.  I'm always wearing layers and adding things like scarfs and wraps to keep warm.  I'm not one typically to quickly jump on trends, but I am so glad I jumped on the plaid blanket scarf.  Do you have on in your collection yet?  I know I have seen them make appearances all over blog land.

Now I don't know if I can even say I jumped on the plaid blanket scarf, I just added mine to my collection a few weeks ago.  But I absolutely love it, and I have worn it nearly everyday since I bought it.

I'm not typically a plaid person, nor am I a red person.  I liked how the plaid looks on everyone else that I saw it on so I was determined to find one that worked for me this season.  I actually spotted this scarf on an earlier shopping trip, but it didn't come home with me.  As I shopped around it stuck with me and I went back for it a few weeks later.  When I first hit the store it was no where to be seen and I was worried I had missed out, but eventually I found it!

On a side note, if you do any shopping in the Chicago Suburbs, particularly at Woodfield Mall, there is this newerish (you know, kinda new, but not really) store called len.  That is where I found this goodie, it's more of a boutique style store, and it's the first one that they've opened outside of the Minneapolis area.  The best part is that nearly everything in the store is marked 50% off, and they are usually running a $10 off when you spend $50 or more promotion.  They have no idea who I am, I have just found some great pieces there and I like to spread the word.

Back to my new favorite scarf.  I'm in love with the mix of burgundy, green, and navy.  But I am more in love with the fact that not only can I wrap it around my neck and pair it with my winter coat.  I can also unfold it and wear it as a nice warm cozy shall to help keep me warm in this unseasonably early cold spell we seem to be having.  It truly is a blanket scarf.

I was unable to track down my exact scarf online, but here are a few other options I found on the web.  In case you are like me, and take a bit to jump onto the bandwagon.

Do you have a favorite cold weather accessory?


  1. I haven't gotten on this trend yet but I love how it looks on everyone who I see wearing it!

  2. I'm loving these plaid blanket scarves. I just just got 2 from old navy and gap and i'm loving them!

  3. Hooray, I'm so glad that you finally found one that you love! Aren't they the best?! I don't make it to Woodfield much these days any more, but I am now intrigued by this new store.

  4. Jump on the bandwagon, you won't regret it!

  5. Nice, I don't know why I didn't even think to check out those two stores?!

  6. I'm typically not a fan of Woodfield, it's too crazy for me. But I'm very strategic when I go. This store is awesome! I just stopped in again today to get something for a gift and I saw the same scarf in black, white and grey, I was so tempted! Another great Woodfield store is Dry Goods, they always have an awesome sale room!
