Happy Humpday, my gorgeous friends!

Blanket scarves have been all the rage for the past few years now and understandably so, they're just so comfy! At the same time, they tend to be very bulky, since they're oversized and if you have a larger bust, this may not be the effect you want to create when wearing a scarf; I totally understand. If that's the case, I think you can still wear them in a way that's more figure flattering, specifically as a vest or cardigan with the addition of a waist belt, like I've done in a previous post here. By wearing the scarf this way, you're not only creating a flattering emphasis to your waist line, but you're also creating a more visually slimming effect, since the eyes are moving downward, instead of focusing on your bust and midsection ;)

Remember I mentioned in  this post how universally flattering jewel toned colors are!?
