Unexpectedly Cuffed

I know that some of you are quickly coming to the end of "scarf season", but for some of us there's still plenty of cold weather & snow to be found & scarf wearing to be done.

While I love all the individual elements of this outfit - stripes, utility vest, plaid blanket scarf, distressed jeans, cognac boots - what I really want to talk about is the solution to my problem.

Although I've totally been on board with the blanket scarf trend, I often feel like I'm eating my's all up in my face getting fuzzels on my freshly applied lip gloss & giving the appearance that I'm literally trying to hide under a blanket (that happen to anyone else?).

Combine this problem with my love of cuff bracelets & voila - a solution!!  I put the cuff on the scarf rather than my wrist!

Striped Top - Nordstrom // Vest - Old Navy // Scarf - Zara // Denim - Express // Boots - Vince Camuto via DSW // Cuff - Express Outlet (similar)

Ahh...I can breathe!!  Plus, I always want to get the most use out of all of my items, so this just adds another function to a cuff bracelet.

What do you think of the unexpected cuff?

Happy weekend friends!!

  1. Ha!! What a cool trick! I think the cuff looks great on the scarf and like it was designed that way! And bonus points for being able to breathe! That's kind of a necessity! LOL

  2. I love the individual elements too but I really love them all combined! That is such a great trick for your scarf! Mine isn't quite as gig, but I am going to have to keep that in mind. Happy Friday!

  3. Seriously this is genius--I LOVE this trick--totally going to try it asap :) I HATE this weather, but I do love scarves--thank goodness because I think I will still be wearing them a good long time as well :)


  4. I do feel like this with blanket scarves and kudos for the best solution! The cuff is it. Awesome sauce!

  5. That is brilliant! I'm always feeling the same way with my blanket scarves. I'm going to have to try that.

    1. Yes, definitely give it a's nice too because it also helps keep the scarf in one place meaning it doesn't come un-wrapped. :-)

  6. Umm.... genius!!!!! I thought I was the only one that felt like I was chocking on the scarf every time. I love them! But was having a hard time figuring out how to tie it without feeling strangled. So THANK YOU!!! Hope you're having a great weekend! And thanks for linking up with us at H54F!!

    1. I'm so glad to hear I'm not the only one choking on these beauties!! Give it a go and let me know what you think :-)

      Thanks Katie!

  7. What a unique way to tie a scarf! I only know 1 way to do scarf and it is boring sometimes

  8. Love that scarf!
