Blanket Scarf Season with Southern Charm: HOW TO

Happy Saturday! Whenever I feel like I’m in a rut or running late and don’t have time to really figure out an outfit I reach for denim on denim. It’s classic and easy but always looks put together. Since it’s still warm here I am pairing my chambray shirt with boyfriend shorts but this look also works with skinny jeans or flare denim

Another great thing about the ‘Canadian Tuxedo’ aka all denim, is it’s a blank canvas for accessories! Sometimes I will combat this casual look by adding a statement necklace or if I know I’ll be gone all day I will throw a blanket scarf into my tote and wrap up in it later!  

See how cute it looks peeking out of your bag?! Obsessed. I wanted to share my quick tutorial on how to messy tie your blanket scarf..

1. Fold in half diagonally. No matter what the shape of your scarf take it & fold in half. It doesn’t have to be a perfect fold, this look is all about messy chic. 

2. Take the first corner and wrap around your neck. 

3. Repeat with second corner. This part looks like a funky new dance, but no whipping or nae nae-ing here. (Babe laughed at me for writing this part! Corny jokes y’all they’re my jam) 

4.  Pull both corners tight then pull the middle to loosen! Adjust as needed but keep in mind it’s not meant to look perfect. 

Now hair flip because you did it girl!  

Another fun way to wear your blanket scarf is to wrap up in it like a cozy poncho. This is perfect for bonfires, tailgates or exploring around downtown. 

This way is super easy.. just wrap up like a blanket & then adjust to a poncho! You could add a fun brooch to keep it in place, too. 

Even if you have already stocked up on blanket scarves for the season be sure to check out all the adorable pieces at Southern Charm Boutique. I promise you’ll easily fill your shopping cart up!
