What you need:
Goorin Francis Fratelli Fedora

What to do:

Step One: Measure the circumference of the hat and cut two strips of leather that when overlapped an inch on each end will fit snuggly around the brim.

Step1 (2)

Step Two: Using the leather punch, create two rows of holes along the leather strip.

Step2 (2)

Step Three: Screw in each stud by pushing the back through the hole and screwing on the top.

What inspired Adriana’s Look:
I tend to gravitate more towards cozy looks during the colder months, and this AEO sweater is just perfect to throw on over my favorite pair of leggings and mixed with a chic scarf. The pretty pattern and comfy knit make it the perfect winter staple, so ideal for a day of running errands, grabbing coffee with friends, or staying warm indoors working on my blog. I’m definitely planning to wear this sweater all winter long, and can’t wait to style it a few different ways. IMG_3721

Holiday Gifting: The Blanket Scarf

Once you’re done creating your own mini stockpile of Aerie Blanket Scarves, it’s time to think about the special people in your life. The holidays are, of course, a time for giving. And who wouldn’t want an extra large, super soft (not-to-mention super cute!) blanket scarf to add to their winter wardrobe?

Our girl Kristin from Living in Color Print couldn’t agree more. Check out her favorite Aerie Blanket Scarves below!

Why Kristin loves the blanket scarf:
I personally can’t get enough of them! I think I’ve added about 8 new prints, colors and patterns to my collection this year, and the season isn’t even over! A blanket scarf if a great way to mix up a look without too much effort. For example: take a simple look like jeans and a solid long sleeve shirt – add in a plaid blanket scarf, or a stripe version. Either option completely transforms the look a little differently without the need to change anything else. A definite must-have for the year!
