Fall Essential: The Blanket Scarf

The blanket scarf, an essential to any fall wardrobe that came to the trendy fall fashion scene last fall thanks to Zara, has continued to be an accessory must. Retailers such as Target have come up with their own versions of this scarf. Although some individuals are selling Zara's scarf for well over $100 on phone apps such as Poshmark and Vinted, you can find one on eBay for under $20 from China. 

 Although I was thinking of purchasing one of the scarves from a vendor in China, I happened to be at Target the other night {I'm there at least twice per week} and stumbled upon their own version of the style. The original price was $16.99, but they were running a promotion of 20% off Merona scarves. {You all know I love a great deal!}

 Let's begin with my new cognac leather flats..Two of my favorite go to shoe brands are Michael Kors & Coach, but I prefer to find them on sale. These beauties were picked up from TJ Maxx at $60. I had a $25 giftcard and two $10 Reward Certificates, so after tax I only paid $18!

The polka dot tights are from Dressbarn. I cannot wait to pick up more patterns this year! A patterned tight works great with a plain skirt or dress to add an extra point of interest. The acorn pleated mini is from J. Crew Factory. I had been eying it up for some time, but did not feel like I could justify paying $80 for it, so I waited until they were running a 40% off promotion. The belt was one of my lovely thrifty finds; only 99 cents at Goodwill! :)

 The oxblood blazer and cream sweater are two of my favorite Dressbarn staples from last fall. I love versatile pieces that you can mix and match to make endless outfits! Let's talk about my #ArmParty shall we? I love my pave link bracelet, but the rest I sure love too! I purchased this pack of bangles and bracelets from Dressbarn this week, and at $15 you can't go wrong :)

 Happy Fall!
