Finally Friday! I was scheduling out the rest of my PTO for this year and ended up with 0.75 of a day left so I’m off today starting at 11:30! Just enough time to enjoy a cup of coffee and check in on all my clients before the weekend : ) In other important and amazing news; I have finally found the PERFECT fall flannel. But there’s something you might find a little surprising about it…
It’s a MEN’S flannel from JCrew Factory! I’d been searching for months now but couldn’t find a pattern I loved. I stumbled upon this one accidentally and was bummed to realize it was for men. But… If we always buy “boyfriend fit” anyway, why couldn’t I make this one work?! I normally order an XS in tops so I went for the XS Slim in this flannel and GUESS WHAT; IT FITS PERFECTLY. I think we’ve finally hacked the system ladies – just buy the boy’s stuff!
I’ve got it paired here with my favorite distressed denim from Old Navy but my new AE jeans arrived yesterday so I may try those out this weekend instead. Throw on your favorite booties, a vest if you’ll be outside and some simple accessories, and you’re ready to go. These Kate Spade studs were a Christmas gift and I love pairing them with a casual outfit for unexpected sparkle, but the smaller size is a lot more manageable – see the shopping widget below to compare. And my DW watch? Comes in that color combo for both men AND women and might just be the perfect present for anyone on your list this year.
And that’s a wrap on today’s Flat Lay Friay! We’re headed off to the mountains this afternoon for Ed’s birthday beer tasting, so be sure to check in next week for a recap of all the fun : ) Have a WONDERFUL weekend!
