Wearing Blanket Scarves at Work
For a couple of years, I sat right by an exterior door at work. It wasn’t a huge deal most of the time, but in the winter, it was so cold at my desk. I learned very quickly that layering was not optional and that I often needed more than two layers. (Though to be fair, I do like to be on the warm side.)
Thanks to Pinterest, I discovered the skirt and sweater combo a while ago. And this winter, I’ve started adding a scarf (ideally a blanket scarf) on top. This is amazing for several reasons, including:
- There’s an extra layer! I mean, I’m probably already wearing a thermal (I have one of these that I wear constantly) and a sweater, and the scarf makes it that much more cozy.
- The scarf is literally a blanket. I remember my dad talking about how he just needs a really warm core and that’s why vests are so great. That’s cool and all, but I need really warm arms — that core thing doesn’t work for me. (And believe me, I’ve tried.) So if I’m not quite warm enough, I can take the scarf off and wear it like a shawl. Or drape it over my lap. 🙂

When I say that I like to be warm, I’m not exaggerating. Last week, I got to my hot yoga class really early, so I was just stretching/laying on my mat — and I almost fell asleep. In the 95 degree room. It was just so warm and dark and cozy!
When I told Matt that story, he didn’t believe me at first. He’s one of those people who likes to be slightly cold. (I clearly don’t get this. At all.) He even sleeps with a fan all year long. Even when it’s below freezing. If he’d been here when our heat broke, he probably would’ve still slept with the fan.
It’s cool. I’ll just be over here wearing 13 layers and a blanket scarf. 🙂
