KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! If you've had a hectic week like my husband and I have (or if you're dealing with the recent snowstorm) grab a cup of coffee, get comfy, and enjoy some major retail therapy. This week's Friday Finds is just the thing for some serious online shopping. I was honestly running late with this post, because I got distracted browsing through all of the products available in each shop. There are so many great finds and a sweet, personal touch to each brand. Enjoy! :) Pictured above: Black Polka Dot Print Crossbody Bag by Sudden Inspiration


The first featured store is Sudden Inspiration, a shop that sells the cutest hand-crafted bags. You can find everything from cosmetics bags and wristlets to roomy crossbody bags. The designs pair faux leather with beautiful prints and colors. As I clicked around and noticed all of the bright florals, modern neutrals, and boho-chic tribal prints; I found myself wondering where the vision behind this brand comes from. Owner Melis…

5 Ways to Wear a Blanket Scarf


Blanket scarves have become a staple for fall and winter. This over-sized scarf trend, often in a plaid print, is very versatile and perfect for layering on a chilly winter day. You can drape it, fold it, roll it, or wear it like you would a regular scarf. Check out how these five fashion bloggers style their blanket scarves.


Wear it Like a Poncho - This is one of the most popular ways I've seen these over-sized scarves styled by fashion bloggers, and it's the most simple. All you have to do is drap it over your shoulders and let it hang down in the back. I love how Dana from How I Met My Outfit paired a grey plaid scarf with a black and grey outfit. If you have a more colorful plaid scarf, pair it with skinny jeans and a neutral white top.


Fold it and Let it Hang - This works well with or without a coat. Simply fold the scarf and let it hang loosely around your neck. Pictured above: Sirma Markova paired hers with a solid-colored coat, and a bright pair of heels to pick up on the red in the print. Keep it from getting blown off in the harsh winter weather by layering a crossbody bag over the scarf.


Layer it Over a Sweater Dress - You can always just wear a blanket scarf the same way you would a regular scarf. Loop it all the way around the neck from both ends. Lovely by Lucy styled it on top of a jacket and sweater dress, perfect for a chilly day.


Fold and Loop it Into a Circle Scarf  - Breanne of Flattery used a fabric scrap to create this over-sized circle scarf. You could create a similar look with your blanket scarf. Fold it flat lengthwise, tie the ends together in a knot the loop it around your neck, leaving one loop longer than the other.


Fold and Belt It - Rebecca from Blogger Not Billionaire shows us how to style a blanket scarf without a coat. Layer it over a long-sleeve tee by folding it wide enough to resemble a vest. Then drape it over your shoulders and let the ends come down evenly across your hips, and finish off the look with a belt.

Here is a great video tutorial with some extra ideas on how to tie an over-sized or blanket scarf:
