Blanket-like Scarves

Bundle up in oversized scarves for extra warmth 

This season, it’s all about the blanket scarf. Its oversized and drapey design makes you feel like you’re curled up on the couch with a knitted throw, plus you can style it so many different ways. Wrap it around your neck like a basic scarf with extra material or drape it over your shoulders and belt it - like a poncho! For more inspiration, see how the style setters wear them below, as well as shop our top 10 blanket scarves from ASOS, Urban Outfitters, Whistles and more.

Falling Whistles

This is a dope cause. More info below. (via NecoleBitchie)

Ciara was spotted at the airport yesterday afternoon as she headed home from her vacation in Miami. She wore a Falling Whistle around her neck in support of a nonprofit campaign for peace and aid for children in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo.

My sister pointed out the significance of the whistle last night and felt it was important for me to raise awareness around the whistle. She told me that the Democratic Republic of the Congo has child soldiers. They kidnap young boys torture them and force them to be soldiers. The ones that are too small to hold guns are given whistles and are put on the front lines. Their job is to blow a whistle to let everyone know when the enemy is coming, so they are the first ones killed. The whistles are sold and 100% of the proceeds go to rehabilitating the ones that escape.

I wonder how many people don’t get the one they want, but end up with the one they’re supposed to be with.
