Vinyasa Scarf *Rulu
A MUST for every closet
I love my vinyasa scarf! You can wear it so many ways, but one of my favorites is like a vest. It is a soft as a blanket and sometimes I just wrap myself up in it when I'm laying on the couch. It is so comfy and definitely a staple for any closet. I don't like to use airplane blankets and this is great for traveling!

I must say, the first time I tried one of these in a store, I was very disappointed. I tried for a good 5-10 minutes in the fitting room to find a way I liked it, and just got frustrated and abandoned the idea, with the scarf along with it. I am SO glad I decided to chance it and order a different one online. I got the "mini check pique sea mist heathered dark navy" colour. The trick is to watch the video, then play around with the scarf in front of the mirror for a while. Once you find one style you like, the rest seem to come easily. I wear my Vinyasa all the time now, and was extremely excited to receive the "mini check pique white heathered silver fox" one from my online order today! I can't wait for more great colours (maybe blue tropics, black cherry, or another beautiful floral, Wink Wink!), as I just know I'm going to have a huge collection of these come winter!! They are so versatile, soft, elegant, and they allow you to stay warm without feeling overwhelmed with fabric, or sweaty. The idea of the rulu fabric is brilliant, and the textured colours are just phenomenal. Way to go Lulu!

I have been looking for a nice scarf that will be good for travel but not too hot if it is warmer. I order this scarf and SERIOUSLY LOVE IT. It is great for the plane or for when my cubicle is too chilly and to cuddle up in. It is so cute and goes with everything I love that it is sweat wicking too so I can throw it on after hot yoga and not freeze on my way home.
Also if there are SO MANY WAYS TOO WEAR IT. It takes a while to kinda perfect the styles but after you get the ones they show you with the video (and if you google other ways people wear it) it is amazing!
I initially ordered the white one but it was too bright for me, so I ordered the black one and love it. The only thing is I wish the black had a fun coloured seam or something to add a tiny bit of flavor.

multiple uses - love it
I got the heathered black grape scarf yesterday at a sale price of $34. I never expected a sale price for this scarf. May be spring is near and winter items need to go fast.
Anyway, the fabric of the scarf is quick thick and soft. It gives you warmth without an overtly bulk. I tried different ways of wearing the scarf from that video and love the scarf even more. I will definitely wear it in my office with very strong air conditioning.

Comfy, versatile scarf
I am in love with this scarf! The snaps make it so much fun to mix up the style. I think the thickness & length of the scarf are ideal; I can wrap it twice without feeling too bulky or constricted & use the length to wear it as a wrap or cardi. I'm definitely looking forward to using it when I take trips this year as a stylish/ useful way to keep warm on the planes. I've already gotten a bunch of compliments from friends & co-workers too!

Can Not Live- or travel- Without This!
I saw this scarf on a travel website, and had a hard time believing it could possibly be a recommended item for travel. But, they made a believer out of me! I have worn it on three airplane trips to the east and to the south this winter and early spring, and hardly ever took it off. It was toasty warm on the airplane and in those freezing airports (wherever they seem to be!). I am always cold and have had a big problem traveling- if I dress warm enough on the plane, I get seriously overheated if the temperature rises. This scarf might be considered "a medical" necessity! I was able to wrap it around my neck, open it up as a shawl, use it as a blanket- shall I continue? I also might add that so many people asked me about the scarf, especially the flight attendants, that I am sure sales have increased! And, I am also loving this scarf at home- and am about to order another!

So soft & comfy
I love this scarf! I almost didn't get it because I thought that the snaps were weird, but now I love it so much and wear it all the time. I also have the fleece one for the winter. Make sure you watch the video for different ways to wear it.

Super Versatile in Ways not shown in the video!
I have two of these and I love them! This is a wonderful piece to have in your bag! I've used it in many of the 10 ways in the how to video but I also used it as a baby carrier in a pinch (don't judge me) and a reusable shopping bag. In fact, I begin to wonder all the other ways I'm not using it that I should be! Messenger bag style? :)
There are two different styles though- the summer and the winter. Make sure you know which you're getting. The summer is obviously the lighter material of the two.

Not what I expected but still great!
Okay, as a devout Lulu lover, I don't want to give the wrong idea with my 4-star review. I do love my Vinyasa scarf. It's pretty. It's functional. It's warm when I need it to be warm. It's versatile. My problem is that the fabric is maybe a little too thick and it makes it super bulky. Wearing it in certain styles because of the thickness makes me feel like I'm drowning in the fabric. Honestly, thickness in a scarf, and specifically one that you can create a cardi or "shirt" out of is a little stupid, but when wearing it as an infinity scarf, it just seems a little bulky. This does NOT mean that I don't love it. I DO!
I wear this almost every day. I purchased the light grey and neutral blush because I'm addicted to grey and light pink color combinations this season. Really. Addicted. It's a problem. Anyway, it's like wrapping a nice mid-weight blanket around you. As one reviewer said, it's a covert way to wear a blanket at work. Or to the mall. Or the opera....okay, maybe not to the opera.
Because it's so thick it is great for wearing as a hood and the airporter and cardigan option come in super handy. It seems from other reviews that certain color options have different weights to the fabric. This is something I will keep in mind for the future. I wouldn't mind a black one. I think the only reason I knocked a star off is because it simply does not look on me the way that it looks on the cute girl in the video no matter how much time or effort I put into styling it! Ah, first world problems....
Again, I love my purchase and I would make it again, and at the price, it's a piece of Lulu that most people who have trouble spending the cash on the pants or tops can justify since it's so wearable through an entire season every single day. I believe it's a great purchase and will definitely purchase at least one more for myself and some for gifts.
