Old Navy Blanket Scarf


Over the past few years, I’ve really pared down my packing list when I travel. Mostly motivated by my aversion to paying baggage fees and my very real fear of lost luggage, I made the transition from a full size suitcase to a carry-on a few years ago and I’m not going back! I’ve learned quickly that this isn’t the time to make impulse choices about what items to throw into my suitcase. Each piece needs to be comfortable and able to be worn multiple times throughout the trip.

Having limited the amount of clothing that I could take with me meant that I knew that I needed outfits that could be worn throughout the trip. I needed clothes that wouldn’t wrinkle in the car, were practical enough for a walk, and could stand up to a good old-fashioned rainstorm.

This Old Navy blanket scarf was an automatic winner. It’s simple pattern worked well day after day and it was so cozy that I was able to stay warm during two full days of rain in County Kerry! At less than $25, this scarf was such a perfect choice for the colder months that as soon as I returned home I ordered it in the green plaid!

When I’m on vacation I don’t like to waste time with the full morning beauty routine and my goal is usually to get out and about as efficiently as I can, so it’s important to me that everything I pack is easy. When exploring this country in particular, I found that there was such an approachable vibe throughout the entire Irish experience that I really wanted to reflect that authentic style too.
