Fall Fashion Staple: Flannel

Hey friends, I hope your week is moving along happily. I’ve been on a small hiatus from the blog due to tons of stuff going on over here. First of all, this past weekend was filled with my best friend’s wedding festivities. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen pictures of me with the most beautiful bride, my friend Steph. She and her love were married at a gorgeous location, and the few days we spent were filled with lots of laughs and love. Unfortunately, my whole family was still battling one form or another of sickness. It’s incredibly hard to balance happiness and feeling like absolute shit at the same time, but somehow we pulled through.

Sunday we headed home and cleaned, sanitized and washed sheets until we were exhausted – in hopes of starting the week off on the right healthy foot. Luckily, we’re all seemingly on the mend and are looking forward to getting a little routine back in our lives. You know when you have a lot of events going on and life is so fun and exciting, but it all sort of starts to spin around you? That’s exactly how I’ve been feeling for the past two months. It’s very crazy to believe that next week is already November, but I am welcoming the month with open arms and lots of plans of hibernation and rejuvenation. Time to get back on track with health, exercise, organization and buckle down on spending.

On that note – I want to share with you that I’ve found the perfect flannel shirt. Flannel is everywhere right now and you can find versions of this shirt literally in every store and at every price point. It seems like it’s passable as business casual even, which is freaking fantastic because it’s warm and cozy and I secretly feel like I’m in my pj’s. So where did I find this gem? Obviously my favorite place on earth – Target! They have a plethora of colors to choose from (I have two so far, and mayyy have to go back for more). The main reason I love this shirt is because I have very broad shoulders from all of my years of swimming plus those Jacobs family genes, and most button ups are way to tight for me. This shirt is roomy enough without looking too big and buttons up easily. The very best part? Right now they’re only $22.99 AND buy 1 get one half off. Go! Go to Target and get this shirt now (or go to their website, that works too).

Happy flanneling!
