How To Style A Blanket Scarf! Modest Thanksgiving Outfit Ideas!

Hello Friends!!

Finally the trees decided to change colors and the leaves were looking gorgeous on the ground! My most favoritest (yes that’s a word now) season ever is Fall, and being from Utah I am used to seeing Autumn in full colorful force! I was totally okay with moving to California for Bible College UNTIL my mom told me that there would be no fall over here because there were basically no trees! (just Joshua trees and palm trees oh and can’t forget about those tumbleweeds #desertlife lol)

At that time it was too late to make a U-turn and head back to Utah! No totally kidding! But today to my surprise the few trees that were on campus were turning colors and the leaves were falling! SCORE!

And in time for thanksgiving! I adore this quote ! An attitude of gratefulness is the key to a happy heart! It’s sometimes easy to take things for granted, even the smallest of things, but once I realize that everything I ”own” is not really mine, but they’re daily blessings from God! Something that has helped me daily, is this quote: ”Whatever happens in my life, whether good or bad, I deserve worse.” Its so true!! God has and will always be merciful even when we don’t deserve!

I love me a good blanket scarf! They’re warm, soft, and double as a blanket when you need one!

They literally elevate any outfit and turn it into a fall/holiday outfit! Over the past year they’ve become more affordable! I’ve seen them as low as $8 on Jane.com! (LOVE Jane!)

Look #1: Hunter Green Jersey Dress+ Plaid Blanket Scarf

I received this Hunter Green Jersey dress from my lovely friends at Kingdom & State! It is a winter must-have! I ADORE the fact that it is a structured jersey dress with strong shoulders for a chic, minimalistic look!

On that day I wore this outfit there were freezing winds! (Hello Lancaster!) I was so thankful that this dress was keeping me warm all day! Not only is it warm, but oh so comfy like pajamas! It was the perfect cozy fall outfit!

Look #2: Blanket Scarf as an open cardigan/ shawl!

I have been meaning to try this Pinterest scarf tip ever since I purchased my blanket scarf! It was so simple! All you do is fold the scarf into a triangle and drape it over your shoulders as a cardigan and belt it! So chic and not to mention extremely cozy! As always cognac accessories are my obsession! This dress is perfect for Thanksgiving because it stretches! LOL

Look #3: Cozy Sweaters, Pleated Cognac Skirts & A Blanket Scarf!

The next outfit was probably one of my favorites for fall! It consisted of rich fall colors and mixtures of textures!

I found the most cozy cream colored sweater in non other than the Walmart aisle! I know I was pretty shocked myself! I would definitely check out the clothing section at Walmart! I have found the cutest skirts and plaid shirts for dirt cheap!

The star of this outfit is none other than this stunning cognac colored pleated leather midi skirt!! EEK! You guys I cannot express how happy I was when I received it in the mail! I have been searching for the longest time ever for a cognac colored skirt and the lovely ladies at Blue Rose Apparel were sweet enough to gift it to me! I am always thrilled to discover new modest clothing sites! Especially when the quality is outstanding like this skirt! I am guilty of never wearing an exact outfit twice but I couldn’t help but to wear this outfit again and in the same week at that too! (shhh don’t tell the fashion police!)

πŸ’•Mint, Pink &Polkadots! +GIVEAWAY from Let’s Be Modest Shop!πŸ’•

Hello lovelies!!πŸ˜πŸ’• 

Happy  Saturday to you! 

I’m so excited to share today’s outfit post and there’s also going to be a giveaway so stay tuned til the end! 

    

I was feeling a abut colorful today and went for my favorite color combo; pink and mint!πŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ’• 

  It’s been such a gorgeous past few days here in LancasterπŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸŒ» The weather is cooling down, but it still feels like summer! I’m pretty used to cold weather back home in Utah  so when people say it’s “cold”here and it’s only 70 degrees I can’t help but be grateful that’s their coldest temp around here ! ⛄️❄️    
I will say this though the winds are fierce!πŸ’¨ When I first came here I thought it was going to be difficult to be modest because of the heat, but actually the Lancaster winds make modesty 100x difficult ESPECIALLY if you like to wear full A-line  skirts!πŸ™†πŸ»  But I do enjoy a challenge I must say! #bringitlancasterwinds πŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ’¨ 

  
I did a little subtle pattern mixing today because it’s Saturday and it just feels right! LOL 

I adore a gorgeous quatrefoil print!! I finally found what my scarfs print was called!! Haha! One day at JoAnn’s I was trying to explain to the fabric lady that this fabric was really popular and had a funky four square design! (Pretty clear huh?) She looked at me with that blank stare people give you when they think you’ve completely lost your mind! 

After that interesting fabric hunt fail I was more determined than ever to find the name of that design so I did a little Google image search with the fabric and bam! Here is the proper  definition: 

Quatrefoil:

an ornamental design of four lobes or leaves as used in architectural tracery, resembling a flower or four-leaf clover. 

Well you learn something new everyday! 

Let’s talk about this scarf for a second!!πŸ˜πŸ’•πŸ’™ Not only is it a gorgeous quatrefoil print with a stunning mint color, BUT it has a secret compartment zipper where you can stash your cash, card or lipgloss!😱 

   
 Mind. blown.πŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’£ 

This scarf is perfect for a day like this because when you’re out soulwinning (door knocking inviting people to church!) you need to have your hands free! I will definitely be storing my scan card,iPhone and some cash! πŸ“±πŸ’³πŸ’° 

GENUIS!
