Ever since picking up this boyfriend style sweater at Value Village, I had been thinking about new ways to wear an oversized sweater. I thought to pack it for our chilly mountain trip to Snoqualmie would be a good time to pair it over a swing dress. Ironically, it didn’t end up being that cold while we were there, and shopping in this sweater became a little uncomfortable. But, I’ve been wearing it this week because our weather took a weird turn, and we’ve suddenly been hit with this breezy, rainy, and stormy weather.
Luckily, I get to get away from the weird weather this weekend as Sarah planned a girl’s trip to celebrate her 25th birthday! We’re off to Eastern Washington in search of some delicious wine and other fun adventures. I’m leaving the little dude at home with Dave, and I’m sure they will be lost without me. Or at the very least, Dave will be subsisting off of take out and probably spending a lot of time playing video games. Sigh.
Anyways, back to the outfit! I thought pairing this fuzzy sweater over my favorite Puella Swing Dress (from Golden Tote a few moons ago) would be an easy way to pack lighter by skipping packing a heavier coat. I bought the Target version of this blanket scarf and really didn’t wear that much of it this winter. I figured I’d try to wear it at least one last time before it had to be packed away for next winter. Hopefully it’s not totally passé next season.

Well, I’m signing off for the weekend early. Today is my Friday since I’m taking a short day tomorrow, so I hope you have a lovely weekend!
What are you up to this weekend? Any fun plans?
So cute. I don’t think I can pull off this look though. lol
OK, I admit I have been hesitant to love the blanket scarves, but you’re definitely rocking it! of course there would be no way I could pull one off NOW. GA weather has officially shifted to spring and we’re getting up into the mid to high seventies. I’ll have to wait until winter to give them a go.
Haha, I bet! Wouldn’t want you to fry to death wearing a scarf, but definitely try one out next winter!
That’s adorable! Sweater weather is over here in Texas, but I’ll have to keep that in mind for next year.
Thanks Carissa! I bet it’s a lot warmer in Texas than it is here! :)
I am obsessed with Value Village’s sweaters! (I am actually wearing a purple one now)…I really like how you styled it!

Thanks so much, Meg! :)
I love this look! My typical go-to is to style an oversized sweater with skinny jeans or even black leggings, so I love how successfully you pulled off the look with a skirt and booties. I’m definitely going to try and replicate this as some point :)
Have fun exploring this weekend!
Thanks Cat! I could totally see you wearing something like this. Can’t wait to see how you replicate it. :)
I love wearing big sweaters in the fall!! Really cute scarf!
Such a cute outfit yet this makes me so sad because it is already in the 90s here and I can no longer wear these types of outfits :(
Oh dang, I’m jealous! It was in the 40s here yesterday and I about froze! Thanks Lindsay!
Ah sweet finds at V.V. – I bought that blanket scarf on eBay from a seller in china. I think I paid like $6 for it. Clearly haven’t worn it often since I live in California. Lol.
Haha I’d imagine not, that’s a great price though! Thanks Nancy!
Super cute! Looks really cozy, comfy & cute for day trippin’ with friends!
I like the sweater, it looks really comfortable!
I lived my blanket scarf over the autumn, much more cosy than a regular scarf.
So true! Love a scarf that can double as a blanket, haha! :)
Man, I really need to start looking in Target, that scarf is super cute and I love what you did with the whole outfit! Girls weekends are the best. Did you guys go to Walla Walla?
Thanks Angie! We didn’t, we stayed at a Vacation home near Chelan and went wine tasting in Chelan/Manson! :)
Love this idea. You look beautiful! Have a lovely weekend! X x
Thanks Bethany! Hope you had a lovely weekend as well! :)
Love this look! I’m obsessed with blanket scarves so I’m glad you can still seasonally rock it! :)
Thanks Suz! :)
