When I was in New York for fashion week back in September, I was thrilled to see so many shades of blue on the runways! Since blue is my favorite color, this is definitely a color trend I don’t mind jumping on as quickly as possible!

This short coat caught my eye right away at Banana Republic. Not only is it a great casual style, perfect for wearing with jeans, it is a fabulous shade of blue! I love the bright, pale turquoise color which brightens up a dreary winter day. In addition to being bright, this coat is extremely cozy! I love staying warm in it. If you need a perfect, cozy, casual coat for right now, this is the coat to check out! You will love it.

The blanket scarf pictured above is also my favorite blanket scarf this season. It is soft, smooth, and very cozy. It adds additional warmth to any outfit I wear; and I love the color mix! The soft grey combined with green, and two shades of blue, makes this blanket scarf so pretty! It also comes in purple, which I am tempted to pick up since both colors are on sale! I may pick up a couple to give as gifts for Christmas too. It can easily roll up and fit inside a stocking! Can we say best. stocking. stuffer, ever! Yes! Maybe Santa will fill my stocking with the purple one. . .hmmmm

I find myself reaching for this coat and scarf combination often. I love how the two pieces look together. Do you have a particular scarf you reach for when you wear a certain jacket or coat? Please share in the comments below!

The earrings I am wearing in these photos is a favorite pair of mine. You may have noticed in previous outfit posts, I wear them often! They come in a dozen colors, so if you are looking for a last minute stocking stuffer, these are a great option! Or, a little somthin’ somthin’ for yourself 😉

I hope you are staying warm this season. If you need a casual coat, I highly recommend this one! It is really warm, comfortable, and cozy! Have a great holiday season and thanks for stopping by!

Burgundy blanket scarf to keep cozy

Pictured: Earrings: Kendra Scott / Sunglasses: Chanel / Lipstick: Christian Louboutin / Blanket Scarf: / Tee: Vince (past season, also love this one) / Ring: Kendra Scott / Nail Polish: Chanel Singulaire / Jeans: Gap / Handbag: Givenchy / Shoes: c/o Joie (color sold out, in other colors here, alternate burgundy booties here.)

The cold weather is here! In order to stay cozy, I have been favoring blanket scarves to keep myself warm during these chilly days. My favorite burgundy blanket scarf is pictured above, and I have found it is my favorite scarf to reach for in the morning.

With Marsala being the color of 2015, and Rose Quartz/Serenity being the colors of 2016, burgundy is a fabulous color to wear right now; and into the new year. It blends perfectly with Rose Quartz, and serenity. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I have paired this burgundy blanket scarf with my light blue Balenciaga handbag; a nod to Marsala mixed with Serenity-a favorite color combo of mine.

I got these Joie booties in the fall 2013 season. They are definitely one of my favorite pairs to reach for every fall season. Joie offers these booties in their classic collection, so the booties are always available for purchase. I am thinking of adding a pair in black suede. They are extremely comfortable, and the suede is unbelievably soft! Love!

These booties, combined with my burgundy blanket scarf, create a combination I just cannot get enough of this season! I love wearing the two together. Now that Serenity of one of the colors of 2016, I plan to wear this combo with my blue Balenciaga often. I love how pale blue and burgundy look together.

Another winning color combination for right now, and into early spring, is burgundy with pale pink. Rose Quartz, the other color of 2016, blends perfectly with any shade of burgundy. It would look amazing with a pale rose Balenciaga! Not that I have added one to my handbag wish list. . .OK, maybe I have!

A girl can never have too many shoes, handbags, or blanket scarves!

My twelve-year-old daughter took these pictures. Didn’t she do a good job with a DSLR camera? I cannot believe how fast she is growing up!

Thanks for stopping by, and stay warm!
