Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Happy Thursday, everyone! I have a very…very…very awesomely handmade 3 ways to wear to share with y’all this week! Ah–let’s jump right to it! 

A few weeks ago, I got this cozy blanket scarf from ForgottenCotton on Etsy. Elizabeth, the lady behind ForgottenCotton, hand-makes ALL of the items in her Etsy shop (scarves, leggings (hand-dyed), boot cuffs, and bow cuff bracelets) in North Western Wyoming where she and her husband live. *BRR!*

As y’all know, the VIP is a HUGE supporter of handmade and American made, so I obviously am head-over-heels for ForgottenCotton! *wink* Oh, there is just something truly satisfying about slipping on a necklace or a scarf that was made by someone who truly adores the craft + is passionate about providing a quality product to consumers. Way to go, ForgottenCotton and all of my other Etsy loves! Y’all are making wardrobes more fabulous by the minute :)

“ForgottenCotton is a 100% handmade clothing and accessories business…We are a husband and wife team who work together and handle every part of our business from sourcing materials to packing orders. Our business is built on the simple principle that all customers deserve high quality goods which are still made in America….We believe there is a small business revolution happening in America and we are proud to be a part of it,” explains Elizabeth on their Etsy about page.

Now, without further ado, I introduce to y’all the 3 Ways to Wear a Blanket Scarf featuring the ForgottenCotton plaid blanket scarf (shop it here!)

Way One: oversized modern loop.  Look like a Hollywood celeb in disguise by wrapping your ForgottenCotton blanket scarf like this + it keeps your neck warm *wink*

Way 2: Embrace the scarves size by wearing it like a shawl. This wrap is one of my favorites because it is so simple and can easily be made casual for a chilly day of running errands or dressed up for a night out on the town with you man candy *wink*
