Let’s start Flannel-ing around! A flannel shirt is a great piece to have during the fall and winter months! It’s awesome worn casually or dressed up! Looks great on it’ own or layered! But, wearing with a pair of jeans and sneakers is predictable! Why not mix it up? Have some fun? Try new things! Plus, there’s still so much time to wear a flannel. So, let’s talk the style options. Let’s freshen up the way we wear our flannels this winter!
Wear your flannel oversized:
Choose an oversized flannel and wear with leggings, lace up sneakers, and a graphic tee. This is great for keeping it super casual! The flannel acts as an overlay and covers the behind which is appropriate for when wearing leggings. This style is perfect for everyday wear! It looks put together with little effort! Head out the door looking casual chic and grab your leather tote on your way out!
This one I recently tried. I felt so nervous…thinking am I cool enough to wear it around my waist? But honestly it was so much fun! Trying new things with your style is way more fun then keeping it the same because you’re too nervous. If you want to give it a go; then you should! If anything, someone is looking at you going; wow! She looks so cute and I now want to try that with my style. Wear it around your waist with cropped denim, lace up booties, a classic v-neck tee, and leather backpack. Sometimes matching shoes and bags is fun and sometimes it’s even more fun to not match! Give it a go and wear brown booties and a black bag or vis versa.
Skip the jeans and pair your flannel with a pleated skirt. The pleats give body to the lower half and is more likely to allow for the flannel to tuck well underneath. If your skirt is a midi length than I feel it is okay to skip tights. With this look a fitted flannel is the way to go. Another way to style is to do a half tuck. Button down the flannel leaving two or three buttons undone and tuck one side of the flannel into the skirt. Leaving one side out as well as the entire back of the top out. Finish the look with a pair of snakeskin pumps and a crossbody clutch. The snakeskin print adds another dimension for super sassy style!
Thanksgiving outfit Ideas; let’s talk all about what to wear on Thanksgiving! I love any excuse to dress up or to just wear a fun outfit! Thanksgiving is no exception. The top I recently found on sale is perfection! Truly, the colors are divine and the fit is on point for a holiday that revolves around food.
Let’s talk this year’s holiday gift ideas! The holidays are upon us and it’s a great time to start thinking about gifts for your loved ones. Sometimes it can be hard to think of unique gifts or gifts you’ve never given before. But, as I think about the holiday’s and what a gift means…it’s really just about showing someone that you thought of them. It shouldn’t matter the price tag or the fact that it’s unique. It truly is the thought that counts. As cliché as it sounds. While I am sure many if not all these gifts have been given or received many times over. They are great items and we’re going to talk about why!
Holiday gift ideas
Women’s Gift Guide-
Let’s start with gifts for women. Cozy pajamas or lounge wear is perfect for this time of year. It’s the time when people want to curl up on the couch, read a book, or watch a holiday movie. The weather is chilly and cozy clothes typically tickle everyone’s fancy. This holiday season gift a flannel pajama set or lounge set. Sets are great because it’s a complete look! There’s no deciphering which top to wear with a pair or bottoms or vis versa. It’s decided for you; who doesn’t love easy dressing? Plus, feeling put together even in lounge wear feels good! If the gal you know loves the holiday’s go with a holiday print like the red and green trees or opt for year round wear with a neural color and print.
Next, we have this amazing scarf. Scarves are one size fits all!! No guessing the size. Plus, this one is simply divine! The color options are great and it’s a fabulous layering piece. Wear it over a winter coat or even wear at home for some extra warmth in those Christmas themed jammies. Free People- Scarf
While we’re on the lounge kick…gift your loved one a pair of UGG slippers. The price tag is a bit of an investment but, the wear on these make it all worth it! They last forever. Plus, if you’re like me I rarely decide I am going to gift myself something like slippers. It’s nice to give someone something you know they wouldn’t to purchase for themselves; but probably would really like to have! UGG-Slippers
This one is a trendy piece! Teddy bear coats have been a popular item for a few seasons now. They’re still going strong and are just so much fun! Plus, there are great options for varying price points. This one is just under $100. However, there are lots of options on Amazon all below $40. Again, with the cozy pieces for winter. Along with that it adds great texture to an outfit. It’s a piece that pairs well with every single color and can be dressed up or down! If someone you know loves the trendy pieces this one is a great addition to their closet. BB Dakota-Teddy Coat
Lastly, this one is something like a stocking stuffer or small but thoughtful gift to a coworker, teacher, etc. Kiehl’s is a great skincare brand and makes an awesome creamy lotion/lip balm. The kind that is so needed during the months when hands are dry and lips are chapped. Plus, the holiday packaging is everything!! Totally takes a simple essential and adds some pizazz; making it a great holiday gift set! Kiehl’s-Holiday Gift Set (Women)
Men’s Gift Guide
Okay, now for the gentlemen in your life! This one is a basic. A button Henley is a great piece for every mans closet! It can be super casual with a pair of jeans and sneakers, or it can be dressed up with a pair of dark jeans, sport coat, and cognac loafers (cognac brown shoes are my preference for when mixing dressy with casual styles). These tees are the perfect happy medium for style. They’re casual by nature but, lend themselves to a more sophisticated casual feel. A staple for any man’s closet. Faherty- Men’s Henley
Let’s talk electronics. Most men are into electronics, right? This one is cool! It’s a cordless/portable speaker. This gadget is sure to be a winner! Bring it to the beach while on vacation, out camping, or just in your backyard while barbequing during the summer months. Another great time to use it is during football season. Pull out the speaker and use Bluetooth to connect to your phone while tailgating before the game! Altec-Speaker
The last two are more basic, great stocking stuffers! Again, we’re talking Kiehl’s. This one is a gift set and comes wrapped with holiday cheer! I know the man in my life doesn’t always take skincare as a serious matter. But, women are not the only ones who should be investing in their skin. This is a great little kit to try out Kiehl’s and see if it’s the right fit for the man in your life. Also, its great for travel! Get your guy started on happy skin with a simple yet effective skincare routine. Kiehls- Gift Set (Men’s)
This one is a favorite! Jason Mark is an awesome shoe cleaner. Comes with a little brush for buffing your shoes and the treatment truly gets the stains out. We use it in our home and love it. Throw this little gem in his stocking for something simple, yet super effective! Jason Mark- Shoe cleaner
Lastly, this gift option is fantastic for a joint gift. Glassy Baby creates the most beautiful hand-blown glass drinkers. Each one has a fun name too! Gifts like these are great because you can personalize it by picking the color/name in correlation with the person you’re gifting it to. Let’s say you’re gifting the glass to your father and he is a grandparent. The one titled “papa” is perfect for him! Or you know someone who loves the beach; snag them “seabreeze” as a fun way to show how you know them so very well! These drinkers can be gifted as a set for a couple’s gift or gift one and start a new collection for someone in your life. *image above is titled “mama drinker” Glassybaby-Drinkers
