OOTD - Aritzia Blanket Scarf for Summer

aritzia blanket scarf summer

If there's one thing that I'm a sucker for, it's a flower market.  Give me copious amounts of fresh flowers artfully displayed in buckets, mason jars and tins, and this girl is in her happy place.  With the Toronto Flower Market making it's monthly appearance on the weekend, I knew that waking up early on a Saturday was inevitable in order to get the good stuff (I was after jumbo dahlias and those babies go fast.)  Imagine my dismay when Saturday morning rolled around and I was met with grey skies, rain and the cold. I was determined to get my coveted flowers so I dressed in my most cozy weekend wear, dragged Brian out of bed and off we went! Summer weather cam be temperamental in Toronto, so having a blanket scarf on-hand is necessary.  I love how well this massive blanket scarf from Aritzia paired with the grey and neutral tones of this casual outfit, and it kept me nice and warm on a chilly day. Rain or shine, the dahlias had to be mine; besides - who needs sunshine when you have bright flowers and coloured walls.

You guys know that I love my blanket scarves and while I typically roll them out in the Fall, it's always nice to have one on-hand in the summer time.  I love this blanket scarf from Aritzia because of it's massive size, and the texture of the material.  The scarf isn't too heavy so to keep summer appropriate, but is substantial enough to keep you warm.

Do you guys go gaga over flower markets like I do?  What are your thoughts on wearing blanket scarves in the summer?  Let me know!

    1. Thanks Chloë, I'm glad that you like this! I seem to only have lighter-coloured Aritzia blanket scarfs, but am definitely going to invest in a darker one for Winter. They're so warm!

    1. Thanks Andréa! I'm definitely to work similar outfits into the mix as we transition into fall. I can't believe that we have to start thinking about transitional outfits already!

  9. Blanket scarves are great year round. I try to pick a lightweight one for the summer though. Great for the chilly office or a chilly plane!
