…remember how I confessed to my flannel and cords addiction this season? And how my inner lumberjack is really coming out this winter? Well, as temperatures plummeted to -15 with the wind chill, I just couldn’t say no to my winter uniform again, readers. It’s happened again and I’m just going to roll with it. Thanks for understanding this somewhat odd fascination with warm flannels and cords. I blame the weather.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I’m beginning to think that almost all colored pants are much more versatile than they seem. Being that I don’t wear a ton of neutrals, I really love colored pants (as you’ve seen at least 100 times on my blog). They are a great way to change up your work looks from standard black and gray pants. Consider pairing your bold pants with similarly bold tops or tone them down with neutral tops. As I said with my last pair of colored cords, J Crew Factory has a great selection. Anthropologie also has 40% off their cords right now.

2) Flannel is everywhere this season (much to my liking, of course). Because of its potential for gender neutrality, I’ve seen many people posting about picking up their flannels in menswear, girlswear, juniors, you name it. The prices in some of these sections (especially juniors/girls) can be lower than in other sections, so consider checking out different sections of your favorite stores. I generally go “section hunting” in Gap, Marshall’s, Old Navy and J Crew.
Anyone else going section hunting in stores? Finding anything good?
