How to wear a blanket scarf like a poncho

This season I think we’ve seen a revamp in the traditional blanket scarf. I haven’t seen the big triangle looped scarves as much this season, but I have seen a lot more being worn like a poncho, so I thought I would give it a try.

The verdict?

Obsessed! And, it’s super simple.

How to wear a blanket scarf like a poncho:

Fold your scarf in half, creating a triangle

Grab the two ends and drape them over your shoulder, leaving the triangle draped in the back

You can also fold the scarf in half, creating a rectangle and wrap yourself up in it, but I think folding it into a triangle creates more of a poncho look and stays a little better on your shoulders. 

I love how this simple step completely changed up my plain gray piko top. I always buy these on sale at local boutiques because they’re so comfy and I like how they’re long enough to cover the booty with leggings but also drape nicely when I want to tuck the front into jeans.

On Friday, Tim and my family went out to the Avalon to finally celebrate my birthday after the snow and sickness delayed it a few weekends. We had dinner at El Felix, then shopped at Lululemon and the Banana Republic sale. I found a lot of great pieces I can’t wait to style for the blog soon! I don’t even want to count up how many ruffle detailed tops I bought in the last week 🙈.

On Saturday, we were expecting it to rain all day, but in the afternoon it cleared up so we went to HomeGoods and the mall to get out. We both ended up at My Fiore Boutique and bought this gray Piko top and blanket scarf on sale for $12. I had to do a little hunting, but I found one exact scarf on Poshmark if you’re interested. I’ve been wearing the heck out of these distressed jeans because they’re very comfortable, and we all know if I’m wearing pants it’s because they’re comfy 😜. They’re currently sold out, but I found a similar pair at Nordstrom Rack from the same company.

It felt like a busy weekend, but it didn’t feel very productive! Minus that big Falcon win! Hoping this week I get a little more blog work done. I have a ton of video footage to edit! Would you rather see how I curl my hair or how I do my blog makeup first??

  6. This is actually my favorite way to wear a blanket scarf- much less bulky than having it all hang in front! Love the colors in this one too!

  7. Love this ! Wearing blanket scarves as ponchos is always such a great way to change up the look of it and it's so pretty ! This one you have is especially gorgeous with the nice pastels. I can't wait to see what you picked up from Banana !

    Love all the neutrals! This is my favorite way to style a blanket scarf because some of them are just too big and bulky so wear around your neck haha!

  13. I don't know if I'll ever get tired of blanket scarves, they're just so versatile and I'm always cold, so they're the perfect solution! I also am obsessed with Piko tops. Being tall, they are the one true tunic I can find that is long enough on me. I also discovered last fall that they also make sweaters!

  • These pretty blush booties are finally back in stock in all sizes and 20% off! They are seriously so comfortable and I’ve already worn them multiple times since getting them last month. Wearing my normal size in boots and I highly recommend picking up a pair 💕 They’re actually more neutral and easier to style than you would think! I’ll share a few looks with them in my stories.

  • I don’t even know who I am because I brought lunch to work two days in a row this week. Pretty sure that streak will end tomorrow for a CFA run 😂 I missed my BBG workout today for a Holiday shoot but I’m determined to catch up the rest of the week! Can’t be falling off the wagon on week 2 🙄I’m uploading my November favorites tomorrow and I’m wearing the same sweater so I clearly love it 😍This look is linked in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app. Thank you to @xxiiiphoto for the pic!
