   – Wear it as a shawl/wrap

A fellow mom blogger wrote a post with 10 ways to tie a blanket scarf if you’re interested in some more intricate ties.

About this dress…

Some of you asked for a recommendation for a dress that would be cute for Fall family photos.   This navy option with the ruffle hem would have looked great in the family photos we did last month.   I am wearing size XS in this dress.   It fits like perfectly (like a size 2) without being too tight.   I am 5’11” so consider that the length might be different if you are considerably shorter.

It’s funny to see myself in a dress because I’ve barely worn any dresses since I left my office job mid-Summer. I wore a lot of dresses to work then, but now that I’m home with my kids everyday I have been more casual than ever.   Do you wear dresses often?

I added an ivory cardigan over the dress because the temperatures fluctuate so much this time of year.   I am wearing size small in the cardigan.   This sweater could be reworn with jeans or leggings.

How about these boots?   I love that they’re stiff enough to hold their shape and have just enough of an intentional slouchy look.   I don’t have any other high boots this color.   This pair fits true to size.

On an unrelated note I tried filtering many of these photos with Lightroom.   Have any of you used this software?    I had a lot of trouble as a first timer.   If there is anyone out there who wants to drop me some tips below I’d love to learn more :).  With only a background in healthcare this whole photography and webpage development stuff has been quite a (welcomed) challenge.

The blanket scarf I am wearing above comes in lots of color options.   Are you a fan of plaid as the weather cools down?

    What a great outfit! Thanks for sharing your tips on how to fold a scarf. I own a blanket scarf just like yours but I never did anything with it because I had no clue how to wear it or tie. Now I can!
