Some days it is far too cool and windy to go without being all wrapped up. And while I normally resort to ponchos, jackets, and cozy sweaters, I decided to mix it up with a blanket scarf cape while running errands over the weekend.
Wearing a blanket scarf belted or unbelted, as I did here, is such a quick and easy way to add a pop of color or pattern to your outfit. Plus, it’s a great way to get additional wear out of those blanket scarves! If you tend to feel that they overwhelm you when worn like a regular scarf, then this is a perfect alternative. Just fold into a triangle and drape it over your shoulders!

And now I have a very special feature with Carly from Dresses & Denim! (Be sure to read to the end to find out more about her and her awesome Michael Kors Giveaway!)
Tell us about your blog……
Dresses & Denim is pretty much an online scrap book of my life. I feature my outfits and travels (I have major wanderlust!), show video tutorials on how to achieve beautiful braids and other hairstyles, and share sweet moments with little toddler boy.
What is your favorite beauty product?
A bold lipstick. I like bright pink for the summer and a bold red for the winter. Right now I’m obsessed with Red-y To Wear by Clinique.
What’s the best piece of fashion advice you have ever gotten?
Shoes and clothing are NOT an investment. Buy what you like and treat yourself to special pieces occasionally, but don’t be fooled into paying way too much for wardrobe items under the false notion that it’s an investment.
What item in your closet can you not live without?
My favorite black skinny jeans from Express. I seriously wear them at least 2 days a week. They go with everything and give a styled look even with a basic tee.
Carly is currently running a BIG giveaway on her blog for this gorgeous Michael Kors Block Bag. Be sure to check out her blog and enter her giveaway here!
