YAY! Another Way to Tie An Oversized Scarf! #FashionFriday

Last Sunday afternoon was beautiful, so my husband and I went out to take pictures. I’m so excited that I found another fun way to tie an oversized scarf. I think this is my favorite yet.

How to Tie An Oversized Scarf: The Celebrity Knot | Fashion Over 40 | Jo-Lynne Shane

In case you missed it, I posted 3 easy ways to tie a blanket scarf last week. After I published that post, I found this amazing video on Facebook that shows you how to tie a scarf in a gazillion different ways. This is the “Celebrity Knot.” It shows at 00:25 if you want to see for yourself.

Look, how cute is the finished product!?!

You can do this with any shape scarf — square or rectangle (mine is a rectangle.) It will also work with a more traditional thin scarf (at least, that is what she’s using in the video; I haven’t tried it.)

I picked up this teal sweater at LOFT last weekend when they were having a 50% off sale. This is the 2015 version of a traditional crewneck sweater. The side slits and basketweave knit keep it modern. It’s rather plain worn on its own, but it creates a great palette for a scarf or statement necklace. For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. I’m always between sizes at LOFT, but I wanted to allow room for shrinkage so I went with a medium.

Fall Fashion: How to Tie An Oversized Scarf

I wore destructed black jeans and black ankle boots to keep the look casual. The bag is from LeTote, and the earrings and bracelets are Stella & Dot.

The ankle boots are super comfortable. I bought them last year at The Walking Company and then didn’t get to wear them much because of my foot injury. They’re coming in handy this year, though. The subtle western inspired styling is fun and makes them great for casual outfits.

Fall Fashion: Slashed Black Jeans with Blanket Scarf

These jeans are insane, I know. I did manage to get them on sale, but if I didn’t have this blog, I doubt I’d have kept them. I feel a little silly wearing shredded jeans out where I live, but at the same time, I’m having fun with them.
