Ofelia Throw from IKEA ($29)
Last night I read a book by my living room window. No air conditioning. No fans. No ice-filled drink. Just damp, campfire scented autumn air, my favorite blanket, a book, and a cat. It was, quite simply, blissful. If you're in the market for a new favorite throw to cozy up with on the cool nights ahead, check out this blanket round up. I'm quite confident all of these blankets will pair wonderfully with fuzzy slippers, trashy novels, salty potato chips, and a cat.
