Erm. So I realized today that I’ve been wearing flannel/plaid pretty much everyday for the past week. I don’t know what it is about feeling layered and cozy in flannel right now, but it’s real and it’s happening. I think I may need an intervention pretty soon…but before you guys intervene, I guess I need to ‘fess up further. I’ve also been wearing colored corduroys with my flannels…multiple days in a row. Phew. Okay. My name is the Fashion Huntress, and I solely want to wear thick flannel shirts and corduroys until March or April. Feels good to get that out.
If I start chopping down pine trees and fur hats a la lumber jack style, someone just come to my house and take away my flannels, please.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) Corduroys. For real, I haven’t had a pair that actually fit me since I was approximately 14. Well, corduroys have gotten really grown-up since the 80s, and a lot more flattering. As you guys know, I try to never say never about clothes that I have had a hard time finding in the past. So, when I found these corduroys at J Crew, I decided to just give them a try. I ended up finding two pairs that fit, which I considered a big victory, Though, for the record, one fit is better than the other despite them being the same size. In summary, J Crew outlet? Huge fan. This time of year, they have 50% off their “sale section” which is already outlet prices. They also have an online site with the same sales/50% off:http://factory.jcrew.com
2) I get tired of wearing sweaters all the time, especially because I feel like most of mine are pretty bulky. I mean, they are sweaters, after all. As a result of this, I wear a lot of layered flannel and cardigans this time of year. I wear tops both under and over my button downs, which is a good way to make your summer/spring/fall button downs warmer for winter. I’m all about layering to wear “warmer weather” pieces all year round, especially in winter. In this look, I wore a top underneath my flannel and a cardigan over.
Anyone else have a winter uniform?
Thanks so much for sharing in my fashion adventures, readers! I appreciate it so much!
