Here are some of the dynamic duos I think about:
Peanut Butter and
Wine and Cheese.
Bacon and Eggs.
Cranberry Juice and Vodka. 😉
Apple Pie and Vanilla Ice Cream.
Zack and Kelly.
Just so you know, I totally laughed out loud when I typed that last one.
You know what else I think about?
CARDIGANS and SCARVES
You pair a cardigan with a scarf, and in my book, you have the PERFECT outfit pairing.
Well, after you add some pants.
And it’s not just me that thinks so, Pinterest thinks so too.

So, today I’m going to be showing you some different scarves all with the same basic outfit.
And all 3 scarves featured today are from Accessory Concierge.
Click HERE for all of the scarves in the collage below!
I’m featuring scarf a, scarf b, and scarf d, although I’m now obsessed with scarf c too.
And let’s be honest, I wouldn’t be mad at you if somebody gave me scarf e or scarf f either.
Now, I must warn you, if you aren’t a scarf person, the above scarves might be a
little too much for you to handle.
They’re all the new BIG scarves (a couple of them are actually blanket scarves – D, E, and F are all blanket scarves).
But if you’re brave enough, you will make SUCH A STATEMENT in your big ol’ scarf.
What’s the statement you’ll make?
I think it’ll probably be something like
“Look how freaking darling I am in this big scarf.”
Now, I want you to know that I totally get that blanket scarves can be intimidating, but I hope to make you less scared of them after seeing them on me in this post, and after seeing the easy 4 step Blanket Scarf tutorial I have for you on Monday! Yep, you’re going to have to stay tuned for that.
Within seconds of opening up all of my scarves (thank you Accessory Concierge!), I started playing around and styling them!
And I WAS IMMEDIATELY OBSESSED.
So I contacted the sweet girls over at Accessory Concierge, told them that I was going to be featuring 3 of their scarves today, and asked for another PTMT code.
And they agreed!!!!
You have to spend $50, but if you do, you’ll get 20% OFF your entire order!
Code = PTMTholiday20
And if you’re shopping don’t forget and trying to get to the $50, keep the following in mind:
I also love THIS cushion cut bracelet (that I wear pretty much ever single day), and THIS necklace (the Stella and Dot knock-off that I featured in my Splurge vs. Steal post HERE), and THIS necklace (love the drusy!) and THESE earrings (love the pretty green color!). Oh, and I don’t have THIS one, but I want it.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE CODE FOR YOURSELF AND FOR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS!
Okay, back to the scarves.
I wanted to start with a totally basic outfit.
So I started with this pin I found.
After I got past the fact that I wanted this girl’s hair, I pulled items from my closet to recreate the outfit.
This is how I did it.
THIS is the cardigan (from LOFT), I’m wearing an x-small.
AND TODAY IT’S ON SALE AND THEN AN ADDITIONAL 50% OFF!!!!!!!
The sleeves are very fitted, so keep that in mind when deciding on your size.
This waterfall cardigan is the perfect fit and shape to pair with scarves. It’s HANDS DOWN my favorite cardigan in my closet right now.
THIS is the white scoop neck tee (from LOFT). If you prefer a v-neck, click HERE.
Click HERE for a tee option from Nordstrom that isn’t super fitted, but isn’t slouchy either! 🙂
THESE are super similar jeans (by the same maker- same fit, just darker, and not distressed).
THESE are the boots.
THESE are the earrings (ONLY $8!).
|And then I took the basic outfit above, and I started throwing all of my new scarves on with it!
SO. MUCH. FUN.
This next collage illustrates how a scarf (ANY scarf) kicks a basic outfit up a knotch…or twenty! 🙂
Scarf HERE (regularly $30 / NOW $24 with code PTMTholiday20)
(Remember: On Monday, I have a tutorial on how to tie the scarf this way. Styling blanket scarves looks hard, but it’s not at all! It’s SUPER easy. Once you read it you will be all “duh”!)
If you already are a scarf person, adding a blanket scarf like this to your closet is a total no-brainer.
It’s warm, cozy, DARLING, and fun!
SCARF OUTFIT #2
Scarf HERE (regularly $38/ NOW $30.40 with code PTMTholiday20)
In the past, I’ve never been a fan of Burberry knock off prints, but now I am.
This scarf was so soft and very easy to style.
(I think it’s going to be super cute with my leggings and denim shirt also!)
SCARF OUTFIT #3
Scarf HERE (regularly $30 / NOW $24 with code PTMTholiday20)
This was the last scarf I photographed, and I wised up and realized I should show you different ways to wear it.
This scarf is very versatile, and I am a big fan of the contrasting patterns on front and back!
From Left to Right:
just looped once / looped twice / loop and twist tie (will do a tutorial on this later too) / just draped
Look at all of the possibilities with this 1 scarf!
So, do you have a favorite scarf?
Is it #1? #2? or #3?
I think #3 might be my favorite…but that might only be because I feel like it kept me from certain death at Carter’s t-ball game last Saturday morning when it was STUPID cold.
(I wore it with my black tweed puffer and my UGG cardy lattice boots to the game!)
Yes, I’ve got a soft spot for scarf #3 since it kept me alive, but I also love #1 A LOT. It’s the first blanket scarf I’ve ever owned, and I will admit that I’m more than a little bit cuckoo over it.
I ran into Shay at Nordstrom earlier this week, and I was wearing basically what I was wearing in Scarf Outfit #1, but I had on my favorite UGGs instead of the over-the-knee boots and I had on THIS “Beautiful” tee instead of the plain white tee (and it’s ONLY $12.50 right now)!
Yep, THIS waterfall cardigan is perfect for layering with a scarf! Just look how it drapes and hangs!
After going our separate ways, I made my way to the junior’s department where I found THIS dolman sleeve cardigan.
It’s short sleeve and very billowy, but also flattering!
Cardigan + Scarf = OUTFIT GOLD
Click HERE for the cardi (that comes in lots of colors)!
And it’s ONLY $38!
(similar leopard belt HERE / UGGs HERE / blanket scarf HERE)
This entire outfit is totally laid back, uber comfy, but still pretty dang cute ifidosaysomyself!
OKAY…so you probably didn’t really need a whole lot of convincing on this whole cardigan and scarf idea, and I’m certainly not the first one to pair a cardigan with a scarf….but I hope you agree that that a cardigan and a scarf together make a totally effortless, yet realllly cute fall outfit!
And you probably have several cardis and scarves in your closets already to pull this look off, but I have some options for you right now just in case you want to freshen things up!
First up, some other scarves.
These are more “beginner” scarves, if you will. They are smaller and not intimidating at all! 🙂
If you’re already a scarf person, I really encourage you to go for the Accessory Concierge scarves
that I highlighted above! GO BIG OR GO HOME LADIES!
But if you are new to the scarf world,
one of the options below would be a great start!
The top row is infinity scarves.
c) chunky rainbow knit HERE / d) navy buffalo plaid scarf HERE / e) leopard ombre HERE
f) red check knit scarf HERE / g) plaid scarf HERE (on sale)

I’m a huge fan of LOFT cardigans. (I won’t even tell you how many I have in my closet…because you probably wouldn’t even believe me. Nope, you can’t make me tell.)
a. waterfall cardi HERE (this is the one I was wearing with all of the Accessory Concierge scarves above) LOVE THIS CARDIGAN!/ b. grey and white striped cardi HERE
c. relaxed cardigan in orange HERE (13 colors total – the one pictured has “red” in the name, but I have it, and it’s definitely more “orange”)

Remember, come back on Monday for
HOW TO TIE A BLANKET SCARF!
Before you go, I have two more things:
On Thursday morning’s facebook post, a couple of girls started a conversation about Frye boots. These girls didn’t have them, but they were considering getting them, and they were questioning if I thought they were really worth the money.
Well, I TOTALLY do. I’ve only been wearing them for a couple of weeks now (once it finally got cold in my neck of the woods), and I of course love the way they look, but I’m also
amazed at their comfort!
However, I decided to continue the conversation to see what others thought, so I asked people on Thursday night to comment on facebook if they had Frye boots…
and if they thought they were worth it!
Click HERE for the facebook post if you would like to read the answers from everybody else!
I would say 98% of the commenters (there were 60 comments when I last checked) answered with a resounding “HECK YES!”
Click HERE for the Cognac colored Melissa’s that are 15% OFF!
And I didn’t realize it last night, but the black ones found HERE are 25% OFF!
