I hope everyone had a lovely Turkey (or Tofurkey) Day because I know mine was full of a lot of food... and, of course, flannel. My family is, well, not your average family. This Thanksgiving we sat 25 people around a T-formed combination of three tables and some of the pre-dinner conversation centered around my blog. Everyone kept on joking that we should have all worn flannel and took a photo. It wasn't even on purpose that I sported a red and black, lumberjack style blouse. I'm pretty sure I am just subconsciously drawn to checks and stripes. My Dad on the other hand sported an all denim outfit, and let me tell you it was hilarious. I think I need to convert him to flannel ;). Well I guess we'll just have to wait until next year for the flannel family photo opt. And I'm pretty sure you can guess what I'm getting my Secret Santa...
Have a great weekend! I'm headed up to the mountains where flannels are a staple in all the skiers and snowboarders wardrobe.
I don't think I've laughed harder than this weekend. I had six friends from Chicago come visit me and we traveled all over the state of Colorado. Boulder. Golden. Silverthorne. Breckenridge. Denver. Of course, a staple item in my overnight bag was a green, navy, and grey flannel. You know how certain pieces of clothing remind you of a certain point in your life? I think this flannel will forever remind me of my best friends visiting me in Colorado.
Happy Halloween Eve! I'm guessing a few of you are scrambling for last minute costumes, but don't worry I have a solution. Check out your local thrift store for some inspiration. Cowgirls, farmers, lumberjacks, or hillbillies are easy costumes when you pair a flannel with some denim and a cowboy hat. Of course there are a handful of other options at the thrift store. I was there on Saturday night with friends and we came up with the following costumes: greaser, gym school teacher (mustache required), a lamp (yes, a lamp), a tree (yes, a tree), and members of KISS. Just be prepared for the place to be picked over and crowded... no one wants to spend $50 bucks for a "bagged costume."
I woke up this morning and rummaged through my closet to figure out a perfect 60-degree outfit. I chose a navy and white flannel that was way too large (men's section), but got way too hot so opted for a regular t-shirt. Of course this made me want to find less heavy flannels that can be worn on warmer fall days. My next trip to the thrift store will be focused on finding just that! Happy hunting :)
