I am a Rebel. Always have been. Even when I try to follow the rules, something inside starts screaming out and I find that if I don’t break out and follow my own path, part of my soul shrivels and dies. (I’m saying this in my circa 1980’s, Punk-Valley accent)
The Blanket Scarf! It’s been a hot fall/winter must have for the past two years. It is beautiful, cozy and versatile. There are an infinite number of How-To-Style tutorials all over the Internets but they all style it in the same handful of ways. I’m not criticizing! I’m just totally shocked that in all the tutorials I have seen, not one has shown this scarf styled the way MY Brain thought it should be styled from the get-go! AS A SKIRT!
You can do a short skirt (like a Kilt) or a long skirt. You can also wear it as a dress (note to self: a future post). It’s really easy! You simply fold it to your desired length, wrap it around yourself, pin it with a kilt pin and/or belt it into place, like this:
Here is how I would style it as an outfit:
And styled long, with a really fun, faux bustle in the back:
Two looks, one fantastic slyle find for $20 at Target!
Thank you to my fabulous photographer, Rosemary!

How creative! I am just about to go try it out with my own blanket scarf. My favorite way that you tried is with the bustle in the back. Great idea!
I saw your post in the What I Wore linkup. Here’s my What I Wore post…
