Christmas Outfit: Green Dress and Blanket Scarf

I think we are all aware that there are 180 wonderful ways to wear a blanket scarf. One of my favorite ways to wear them is simply paired with a similar color scheme. Personally, I'm just not one to wear a ton of pattern mixing or crazy colors. I just like the classic look of a plaid scarf paired with similar colors but that's just me! I know a lot of girls can pull off the multiple patterns beautifully but I don't feel that I'm one of those ladies :)

Here I've paired my blanket scarf with a comfy green dress for a semi-casual Christmas look. You could easily dress this outfit up a little, as I did with accessories, or make it even more fancy with some heels and a nice peacoat for a Christmas party! My family doesn't really do anything fancy for Christmas so this would be a perfect outfit for my holiday festivities because it's versatile enough for pictures, relaxing around the house or going out to eat - all features you want in an outfit!

The "original" blanket scarf (the one I'm wearing) is still one of my favorites! It has so many colors in it so you can pair it with a lot of different items. The one I'm wearing here is the first blanket scarf I ever bought and scored it for just $11 on eBay and it's been cut in half. Since I live in Dallas, it rarely gets cold enough to bundle up in a full size blanket scarf so cutting it in half was a great decision! Plus, you get two amazing scarves for only $11!

PS - I'll be making a tutorial for cutting your blanket scar in half soon! Keep a lookout if that's some information you're interested in and let me know in the comments below!
