As promised, this week’s trend Tuesday is all about the leopard! I’m finally feeling the slightest drop in temps and am busting out my leopard blanket scarf to style with other basics. I know there are a lot of different styles out there but I love this particular leopard blanket scarf because it is also a poncho!
If I’m being honest I probably don’t neeeeeed the scarf but give me an inch of Fall and I’ll take a big colorful leaf covered mile. I’ve never not been obsessed with leopard so I am one of the #basic bloggers who considers it a neutral. I have to say I get it honest though. My mom has long been obsessed with leopard (so much so it is a running joke among family) and passed it on to me. Luckily for me, it’s trendy and oh so popular so I escaped the fate of being the butt of another family joke. I wear my spots proudly and lately have found myself in need of a re-fresh. I’ve been on the hunt for some new leopard pieces. I have the flats, the bag and a top here and there, but really wanted to find the perfect leopard blanket scarf, booties and sweatshirt or cardigan (not both because that would be overkill and silly 😛 ). I was lucky enough to land this on this one after using a little imagination. Back in July during the #nsale, I stumbled across this poncho (if you are shopping for it, it is actually a poncho) and loved the scale of the print. The coloring, the stripes and the size were just perfect in all aspects. I decided to give it a try. Once delivered, I loved it event more – as a poncho and as a blanket scarf. It takes some working to get it just right since there is a significant amount of material to work with, but the overall look and coverage is perfection. Wrap up or wrap it around your neck, this leopard blanket scarf won’t break the bank and is oh so perfect!
