Feeling My Most Cozy

I shared earlier in the season about my new capsule wardrobe, and I thought I'd take a small minute to let you know that it's been excellent and very cozy. I've long had the dilemma of living in houses that aren't very warm, but who wants to wear a coat in the house? The answer I've found is to to wear a sweater that's secretly a coat. Mine is made with alpaca and wool, and while bulky, it's not as bulky as a coat of similar warmness would be. Also, I feel so cozy while wearing it and I never want to take it off. When I go outside, I simply belt it and it keeps the wind out. No more coats for me, just really warm sweaters.

What really took me over the edge of coziness was this tutorial on how to make a blanket scarf. I knew it was meant for me when it came across my feed in Pinterest. What do I love more than scarves and blankets? Putting the two together was clearly done by someone who loves excessive coziness as much as me.

The tutorial basically requires that you go to the fabric store and buy a lot of flannel and then try to wrap it around your neck. These are both things I felt were within my skill set, and I have not regretted following through. When I wear this scarf I feel excellently cozy. Bonus, if you need to take a nap you can unwrap it from your neck and use it as a blanket. What could be better???

I'm feeling extravagently cozy.

Love the look of the sweater/blanket! But my question is - where in the world are you in this photo? I have never seen anything that looks like this!! Of course I haven't traveled a lot and have always heard that the northwest is something to see.

A blanket scarf sounds like a wonderful idea! Our house is freezing so we always have plenty of blankets to snuggle up in.
