Today I am excited to be guest co-hosting with Lauren of fizzandfrosting.com for the link up Mix It Mondays. I have been following Lauren’s blog for a while now and I am just amazed at how she can remix certain items from vests, chambray, a LBD and more every Monday. I also love that she is a new mommy and can still pull off looking so great, I am thrilled to be working with her today. Make sure you pay her a visit and check out what part of her wardrobe she has remixed.
Now on to my outfit, remix photos below and the link up. I look forward to checking your linked blogs out.
I have been wanting “the” Zara blanket scarf for months before the holidays and while I love my other Zara blue and green scarf I couldn’t find “the” one online for the price range needed except to find used ones by other bloggers and even those were pricey. With Christmas money burrowing a hole in my pocket I remembered several shops on instagram or through blog advertisements of shops that carried “similar” blanket scarves. After checking many of those sites, even Target.com and finding SOLD OUT everywhere I came upon sassysteals.com and there it was for $15. Now I am glad to say this “similar” to Zara blanket scarf is now mine and I just love it, I wear it often and get loads of compliments on it.
I choose to belt the scarf around me for a poncho/cape effect but had a hard time pulling it off correctly, especially with the wind in these photos and moving around through out the day.
This red sweater dress is a favorite in color for me but honestly too tight, but with an added vest, jacket or even this scarf it hides the unflattering parts of my body.
