If you thought a blanket scarf was only for winter, think again! Today I’m going to show you how to get away with wearing a blanket scarf in the summer without overheating.
The scarf I’m using in my example is a lightweight patterned blanket scarf that I borrowed from Emily. (Fun fact: she previously explained how to wear a traditional blanket scarf in the winter. Worth a read!)
I was stoked to get my hands on this scarf during the time that I rocked lavender hair. It was a perfect match and made coming up with an outfit really easy!
Wearing a scarf in the summer seems a bit impractical but I imagined wearing it on a cool night for a dressy event.
To begin, I pulled pieces from my closet that were breezy basics. This lace crop top is in heavy rotation, while the cognac colored skirt is a good balance because it’s on the heavier side, as far as fabric goes.
My finishing piece was the blanket scarf that I draped like a shawl. Best of all? You can remove it and it wouldn’t change the structure of the outfit and you’d still look put together.

If you’re still looking for another way to get use of your wintry blanket scarf this summer, consider using it as a blanket for a picnic in the park. It’s not fashion but it is functional!
Hope you’re all having a super awesome summer!
Hey, friends! Hannah from The Outfit Repeater here today to do what I do best – repeat outfits!
Just a couple months ago I published my first outfit on here wearing a lime green skirt from Emily. Now I’m back with another way I styled it all those times ago.
I was actually really unsure if I liked this look which is why it’s taken me so long to post.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the way the hot pink knit top looks with the lime green midi skirt, I just wasn’t sure how me it was. And that was even after I added this blinged out statement necklace!
I guess my qualm with the look was that I like to try to add some vintage element my looks. And when I say ‘vintage’ element, I mostly just mean something from the 1980s.
Adding this black purse was the addition that I needed. It’s not quite ’80s considering when I thrifted it a few months ago I found a McDonalds receipt in it from 1997. (And maybe some really expired McDonalds coupons!) But it was close enough for me and added just the right old element I had been looking for.

But now the outfit is posted for the world to see and there’s no taking it back. You win some, you lose some, right?
Even if I don’t like an outfit, at least I can improve upon it the next time I wear it or take inspiration from it for another outfit I will love even more. I’m totally looking forward to wearing this lime & hot pink color combination in the future Maybe this outfit gave you some ideas too?
