For fellow lovers of flannel and all things bows, this top (on sale!) is the perfect marriage of the two in a piece that’s versatile for both work and casual wear! I’ve also worn it tucked into a flared black mini for a festive gathering. The flannel is comfortable and the fit is true to size. It also comes in a navy plaid for those who prefer darker colors!
Here I’ve shown how this shirt looks either layered under a crewneck sweater, or worn by itself. I took these photos on a more mild (but windy!) day, so would add charcoal gray tights to this outfit for colder winter days.
My Club Monaco Hanne trench is from last year but is still available in an olive color. Note I got the sleeves shortened, and the lapels are wide so I need to drape them strategically for a shorter frame. They have a similar option this year with adorable ties on the sleeves, available in more colors – see my fitting room review of the current version, which would also need sleeve shortening on someone similar to me in size.
As some of you may have seen on Instagram stories, I just took this cashmere sweater out of storage from last winter and was so sad to find multiple, decently-sized holes chewed through it (of course I didn’t notice until I was already out and about wearing it)! I keep my sweaters stored in under-bed drawers which are NOT airtight / vacuum sealed unfortunately, but I scatter lots of cedar blocks throughout the drawers to ward off moths and silverfish bugs. Clearly that did not work, and now I’m scared to examine all my beloved knits from that drawer for damage. If you have any effective tips to fight sweater-loving pests, please share in the comments!
