Mom Style: Skirt the Blanket Scarf!

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!
