How to tie your blanket scarf on CaliCrest.com

I’ve had a lot of questions (mostly on instagram) asking how I tie my blanket scarves so today I’m showing you my favorite way.  It’s so simple and I love the way it looks, hope you will too!  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thanksgiving Outfit

Fall Fashion on CaliCrest.com  fall street style on calicrest.comstreet styleFall Blanket Scarf on CaliCrest.com

I know all families are different but I’m curious, did your family dress up for Thanksgiving dinner or was it okay to go to the table casually dressed?  Growing up we weren’t expected to be in our Sunday best but we’d never dream of showing up to the dinner table in sweats.  My mom worked all day in the kitchen cooking and felt it was a sign of respect to dress nicely before sitting down together.  That being said, this is my Thanksgiving look.  It’s comfortable without being sloppy, hopefully my mom would approve!

I love Thanksgiving and have so much I’m grateful for.  Thank you so much for reading, I hope you have a great Thanksgiving week!

This outfit is inspired by my son Billy, he’s obsessed with everything Military.  He’d dress head to toe camo if I let him, thank goodness I still have a say when it comes to what he wears to school (after school is another story).  When I saw this t-shirt at Target it made me think of him and I had to get it.  I added a cute cardigan and a statement necklace to glam it up a bit.  And can we talk about these booties?  I saw these on the Nine West website and had to have them, I’m obsessed!

Be sure to check back later this week, I’m going to start sharing little gifts I give and this week it’s what I give the hostess when invited for dinner (hint… I don’t drink so it’s not wine).  Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great week!

Cold Front

A cold front has moved in and all I want to do is bundle up and drink hot cocoa all day.  A blanket scarf is the perfect solution to colder weather.  I was so obsessed with this scarf last year and I still can’t get enough of it!  It’s so warm and soft, I think I’ll be wearing this all season.

There are so many cute blanket scarves I’ve been eyeing, if you need something warm check out my favorites below.  Thanks for stopping by!

Hope you a few accessories you like too!

This is pretty much what you’ll see me in all week.  It’s the last week of school for my kids and we’ve got something going on everyday (class parties and field trips) and evening (games, practices, end of the season banquets, parties, graduation…) so I’m going to be in jeans, a top and flats everyday!  What’s your favorite go-to outfit for busy days?

Thanks for stopping by, hope you’re all having a great week!
