fall faves: flannel

It’s no surprise at all that I love flannel. Flannel shirts, flannel pants, anything soft and cozy – and I especially love buffalo plaid. There’s something so cozy about that pattern specifically that makes me want to curl up on a couch with an oversized shirt, mug of tea, good book and cuddly blanket.

My favorite flannel shirt was actually a buy from Walmart last year, and ever since I grabbed it and threw it in the cart on Black Friday without so much as checking the size, I’ve beaten myself up for not stocking up on more. It’s back this year, and I’ll probably grab one or a few since I nearly wore the last one out! Old Navy has a similar one in several prints (and I might have two of these, too!) Their Boyfriend flannel shirt is tunic length with sleeves that look great rolled up or down, and they’re super affordable – I can usually grab them for $10 or $12. I also have a well-loved dress in the print that isn’t carried anymore, but Target has a long-sleeve version as well that is super cute.

To keep up with the “cozy” feel, I love this sherpa-lined throw from Eddie Bauer. It looks SO cozy, and is big enough to curl up in on chilly mornings!

A blanket scarf is a must-have for the fall and winter. It keeps you cozy and warm both inside and out, and often when I’m running errands or stopping by the mall, I won’t even bother with a coat – the scarf keeps me toasty enough. Last year I went a little crazy and ordered a few during a Bourbon & Boots sale, but I regret nothing.

Is there anything better than curling up under a blanket with some tea on a cold fall day? This plaid mug from Starbucks is a must-have for me – or, for some personalization, these customized state-specific mugs are adorable.

I’ve been on the go a lot lately and putting a lot of miles on my favorite travel bags – this Buffalo plaid weekender from Maurices looks like a nice replacement! It’s pretty roomy, and looks like it has some zipper pockets for organization. It also features both shoulder straps and a cross-body straps – something I look for in bags I know I’ll load up when travelling.
