In the a/w'14 shows Cara, Suki and Jourdan sashayed down the catwalk in the beautiful monogrammed Burberry blanket wraps. Since then they have hit the shops by storm and now everywhere i go i see these wraps. I do love when a beautiful item gets filtered down to the High Street making them accessible and affordable for all to try, especially when it's something i wasn't 100% sure of. As much as they looked stunning on the super models and the likes of Olivia Palermo (who would look fabulous in a bin bag quite frankly), i just didn't know if i could wear it and pull it off. All that i kept thinking of was "Will i look like Clint Eastwood in a spaghetti western?"
The best way to answer a question is to just go ahead and try it out, and i have to admit, at first i did feel like a bit i'd just walked off the set off 'The Good the Bad and the Ugly', but after a wee while i came to really like it! Wrapped around it felt comfy and warm and snuggly and then when simply draped it felt elegant. I wore this on my Birthday where I went out for lunch with hubby to our favourite local pub and i felt like it was the perfect outfit for lunch by the open fireplace.

Have you tried the blanket wrap? If you have, how do you love to style yours? I would love some more inspiration!
And if you haven't tried one, have i tempted you to give a blanket a go?I have to say even when i'm not going out, mine is close by, just to wrap around and keep me snuggly and warm, making it a perfect winter purchase!
Ps THANK YOU to everyone who commented/tweeted/IG me with birthday wishes, you guys are like a huge extended family and i want to send you all BIG humongous hugs!
My birthday was wednesday but it's kind of been a week long event (still on going in fact!) So i would love to write a blog post about it and share with you all next week!
30 so far is looking pretty swell!!
