Last week I was in Chicago for several days and it was such a cool city!

If you know me well, you know I LOVE NYC, but Chicago was actually a cleaner and friendlier version of that. While not as touristy as New York, Chicago had a big city vibe with a Mid Western attitude in my opinion.

The fall weather was wonderful and I quickly learned that Chicago truly is “The Windy City.”

While I do wish I would’ve worn more walking appropriate shoes, I loved being able to break out my blanket scarves like in the pictures above. I got that scarf from Belk and OMG it is so soft and cozy! You can find it here.

If you live in the south like me, you haven’t had many chances to wear one so far but go ahead and stock up because the chilly months are coming and they sell out quickly.

You can find some of my favorites here and here!

Oh, and photo credits go to my handsome guy, Chris! He is learning my camera for me so I can put out regular content for you all.

Chic Stripes and Suede Boots

Hi friends!

I can’t believe it is already February! This is probably the coldest month that we experience in South Carolina so I am trying to get in all my sweaters, fur, and boots while I can. Today’s look is one of my favorite pieces that I haven’t worn out yet (aka you’ll probably see me out and about with this soon!)

This poncho is from THIS website. My mom got me this as a Christmas present, and it is so pretty I’m disappointed in myself for not wearing it sooner!

I have worn these black jeans over and over again this winter because they are super comfortable and the rips give them an extra edge. These jeans are from Articles of Society.

My new favorite knee high boots are from GUESS and they are so chic! They are suede and have some nice details on the side including a faux buckle. These are definitely boots that I can pair with a nicer dress or make casual with jeans or leggings.

I’m loving this outfit because I can take it from lunch with the girls all the way to happy hour or an early evening out with friends. It also fits the bill for stylish and warm which as you remember from this article is important to me!

Hope you all have an awesome week! For more fashion fun and updates, follow me on Instagram @palmettocouture!!

TRENDING: The Blanket Scarf

One of the most popular, and coziest, trends of this fall and winter seasons, is the Blanket Scarf! They are soft, warm, and really add a special touch to casual and dressier outfits alike.

You will come to know that I adore scarves. I have over 30 hanging in my closet as we “speak!” Some are solid colors, some patterned, some infinity style, and of course, your standard, tried and true, pashminas.

The blanket scarf, however, is the figurative “new girl in town” in my closet, and I have welcomed her with open arms! I would say neck, but that would just be odd…

While this post focuses on a casual styling of the blanket scarf, I plan to add this to dresses as well. Imagine a midi length sweater dress, sassy booties, and a blanket scarf?! I’m already planning that outfit as I type this!

Its easy to see that the blanket scarf can be dressed up or down depending your preference. I can’t wait for cooler weather so I can add this to my outfits more often. If you are looking for this scarf in particular, you can find a similar one here, but they are literally EVERYWHERE right now! This is a perfect trendy accessory because there are many affordable options.

Find one that suits your personality and just go for it! Get your trend on!
