When I was in high school, I inadvertently accumulated a huge scarf collection. While I've certainly tamed down my love for scarves, I now have a new obsession: blanket scarves. They're super comfy, ridiculously warm, and wonderfully versatile.

Let's be honest, in California, you really don't need one for the most part, but I'm always looking for ways to incorporate it into my outfit. Plus, I'm always cold anyway, especially at work so I have on at my desk too. All my coworkers at all of the jobs I've had know me as that one chick who is always wrapped in a blanket from meeting to meeting #NOSHAME. They also came in handy the few times I've visited the East Coast in the winter. I'm pretty sure they're one of the main reasons I didn't turn into an actual icicle. Some favorite ways to use them other than just a scarf:

  • Makeshift pillow on long plane rides
  • Great way to wipe your tears if you're like me and cried when it was 1 degree Fahrenheit
  • Use it as a throw around the house
