Zara Blanket Scarf

Usually I don't jump on the bandwagon with the item that everyone seems to have from a particular season. But when I first saw the Zara blanket scarf, I knew that I needed to have it. It's plaid, it's warm, and it's from Zara. What else did I need to convince myself?

With the incredibly cold winter that we're having here in Maryland, I'm actually getting quite a lot of mileage out of this scarf that doubles as a blanket. Really, the scarf is so huge that it will be a great blanket next fall for football games.

Figuring out how to tie such a large blanket scarf is somewhat of a challenge because it is bulky. I didn't want it to overpower my outfit. Here's how I tied it.

1. Fold the square scarf in half into a triangle.
2. Roll the edge of the triangle until about 12 inches of the scarf remains unrolled. Make sure your roll is fairly small or else it will be bulky around your neck.
3. Put the triangle end in the front and wrap the two ends around your neck. Bring the ends back to the front.
4. Fluff and arrange the scarf.

P.S. In other exciting news, I'm proud to say that I've lost 5 pounds since Christmas. It's been a lot of hard work with clean eating and not cheating. I've also been doing Jillian Michaels' Ripped in 30 workout. I'm still on week 2, but I'm making progress!!


  1. You look great! So chic!
