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!

I love Aritzia's blanket scarves! I have two - one wool one strictly for winter, and a purple cotton one for spring and summer... But now I'm reeeallllyyyyy loving the soft neutral tones of this one!ReplyDelete
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!Delete
I love this so much! You look so beautiful. I have that bag and haven't brought it out all year, you're making me want to go switch into it haha!ReplyDelete

Thanks Christine! We must be on the same wavelength - I also JUST re-discovered this bag in my closet and started wearing it again!Delete
this is a perfect outfit to stroll to the flower market or anywhere and that scarf is amazing for the summer and fall. great lookReplyDelete
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!Delete
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!ReplyDelete

SO true Kris, I always bring a huge blanket scarf when traveling - if only for the plane ride alone!Delete
love the cardigan and the scarf, such a nice look!ReplyDelete
This scarf is making the impending seasonal shift a tad more bearable! Love the neutrals!ReplyDelete
Thanks Grabriella, I feel the same way - I'm so sad to have to be thinking of fall outfits already, but am secretly excited for cozy scarves and heavier knits again!Delete
I absolutely love all the neutral shades you put together in this outfit, it's really stunning. And as a fellow blanket scarf addict, I am dying for this one! Really love your looks!ReplyDelete
