Hi ladies! Hope the start of your week is treating you well. I don’t know about you guys, but we had the MOST beautiful weekend in Milwaukee, WI. It was almost 60 degrees which is usually unheard of in February. I also headed to my first bridal show on Sunday with my mom, Josh’s mom, and my sister. It was such a fun time and really got me excited for the beginning stages of wedding planning.
While this weekend was a great tease of the spring months ahead, the temperatures drop (a little) this week, meaning it’s time to throw some layers back on. A great way to easily add a layer of warmth to a plain top is to turn your favorite blanket scarf into a poncho. Today I’m going to show you how to do it step by step.
(1) Fold the scarf into a triangle.
(2) Drape the scarf over your shoulders, the point of the triangle laying on your back pointing downward.
(3) Tie a belt around your waist to hold the scarf in place and add shape
Wah-lah! Easy as that, people. You’ve now avoided needing to go out and buy a separate poncho to rock this winter trend. I’m all about re-using pieces in my closet, that’s why you will see a lot of “repeat” pieces or jewelry in my looks. I want you to make the most of your closet and find new ways to love your favorite pieces even more!
Hope you enjoyed this post! Leave a comment below if you have any other ways you like to wear your blanket scarves. Have a great week!
