Fashionable in Flannel

Posted by Tara

"Life is too short to wear boring clothes"-Author Unknown

I came across this quote recently and fell in love with it. Life is really too short to wear boring clothes. I feel like I can wear comfortable, exciting, fashionable clothes and still run around and be a mom. Do I dress like this every single day. Nope. I'm just like all of you wearing workout clothes as I clean my house and drop kids off at school, but when I get the opportunity to dress nice, I do! I enjoy putting together outfits that highlight my style. 

Flannel is certainly part of my style. My love for flannel has grown over the past year, I would wear it everyday if I could! I was reading an article today about "What makes you a Hipster?" and I noticed a few of the things on the list were things that I wear constantly: flannel, skinny jeans, ironic tops, messy bed head.. the list goes on. I'm definitely not a true hipster, but it was interesting how many of the items on the list I wear!

When it comes to building a trendy wardrobe, a trusty woven or flannel button-down is an excellent place to start. This season there are all sorts of colors of flannel. I have a few more I want to add to my closet for Christmas. Flannel is great on scarves as well. I am seeing them everywhere. It adds a touch of texture to an outfit. 

You can style flannel all different kinds of ways like western, grungy, hipster, or laid-back California cool. Put it under a sweater like I did or on top of a printed tee or wear it alone, there is almost no wrong way to wear it. I like to pair mine with a cream tulle skirt for church on Sundays.

Flannel is a must-have for me this season. I hope you were able to find some inspiration on how to wear it this winter! Be sure to check out my other outfits with flannel.

What I Wore:
