The Blanket Scarf

This cold is NO JOKE! I definitely am not a cold weather person, I don’t really know who is, but this kind of weather just makes me want to stay cuddled in bed all day. BUT, I have a job, things to do, people to see, so the next best thing besides the blankets on my bed, is a blanket scarf.

I have about 12 scarves, most of which are black, or some other neutral shade, but this one is my current fav. This is by far the biggest & coziest scarf I’ve owned and I am loving the pale shade of pink that pairs so well with so many things!

And you’re definitely not Canadian without a toque, another winter accessory that I wish I owned less of. Actually I love hats, so regardless if it were Winter or not, I would be sporting the beanie. It’s the easiest thing to throw on (besides sunglasses) to instantly add something extra to an outfit… or to just hide a really bad hair day, which is more common in my case!

Look how cozy this scarf is!!

Another fav of mine is my Mackage leather jacket. A Canadian label, which I always think is cool, makes the most beautiful leather coats. I’ve had this one for a couple years now, and the quality of it is amazing. Every time I’m in Aritzia or Mendocino I always check out the new styles and I think it’s time to add in another one. They’re quite pricey, and I’m all about a deal, but if you invest in one thing, a leather jacket is it.

How cute is this little guy that jumped into the frame!?! So stylish too with his yellow vest and silver kicks. Love it.

My countdown to Hawaii has started – 2 months to go! Until then, this scarf will remain at the front of my closet and I should probably retire the bare legs!

I’m all about the accessories, so if you guys have a favorite Winter accessory please share!

    I loved the leather jacket! Makes sense since it’s Aritzia. Definitely a worthwhile splurge.

      Yes, it’s a splurge for sure. But I’ve had it for over 3 years and have worn it over 100 times! Awesome quality!!

    […] fashion pieces. I swear it goes with everything. That Mackage jacket I have referred to previously (seen here) has probably gotten 100+ wears out of it. I am still browsing for another Mackage – tried on […]
