Favorite Flannels

There are three things that I absolutely love about flannel shirts. First of all, they are made of soft fabrics that keep you very warm. This makes flannel shirts the perfect staple to have on hand in your closet for the colder months of the fall and winter seasons. Secondly, flannel shirts come in a variety of styles; they can be found in almost every color, and the shirt may sport either a checkered, plaid, or even a gingham pattern, depending on the number of colors used in the design.  Thirdly, flannel tops are very versatile. Pair a flannel with some leggings to lounge around in, or layer one under a pull over sweater for a stylish look.

This trendy top will come in handy for the cold months ahead! Have you stocked up on any flannel shirts yet? Check out some of my favorite flannel finds below–

College Game Day!

As college football season winds down and comes to a close, I am excited to break out all my favorite game day clothes one last time! Tailgating at southern schools requires girls and guys to deck out in school colors from tips to toes. While many of the men favor PFGs, polos, button downs, bow ties, Sperry’s and colored khakis, girls take it to another level. Dresses of every style in the school colors are a must! Being a South Carolina Gamecocks fan, I have a closet full of black dresses to pair with garnet accessories and hair bows along with the standard brown cowboy or riding boots!

Here are some of my favorite looks for college game day!

This lace skirt is perfect with a black or white top and boots!

I love a simple satin top that goes perfectly with a simple black skirt that you can dress up with super cute accessories…like this bubble necklace:

These bubble necklaces come in a variety of colors and you can even get them in multiples colors on one necklace! They are available practically everywhere nowadays!

This red dress is simple, casual and something I would totally wear with boots and a necklace for game day! There are so many variations of this and can be found in just about any store!

Have a great end to your college football season! Go Gamecocks!

Fall Style: Riding Boots

Fall is definitely my favorite time of year clothes-wise! There are just so many options and cute styles available to choose from! Living in Charleston, SC, sometimes the weather throws me for a loop so one day you will see people rocking their Lilly print dresses and flip flops, and the next people are bundled up in Uggs and peacoats! However, I am a NYC girl at heart and love to stay true to my fall wardrobe!

My favorite fall clothing item has to be riding boots. You can wear them with practically anything! For class, I usually throw on jeans, a sweater, some cute accessories and then my riding boots over the jeans. Also, some of my cute fall dresses also look perfect with boots when I have a meeting or interview to go to. I also wear them with dresses for work at the basketball games when I have to dress more professional. They come in so handy, and in a variety of colors, styles and prices!

These below are the boots that I currently own and wear pretty regularly. They go with EVERYTHING!

Fall Must Haves: Fall Before Winter

As you may all know, fall has been here for a while. Growing up in New England and having been around for 19 years has made me love Fall even more. New Englanders, in my opinion, have the best of each season!! It may be late to start thinking about Fall wear, but it’s never too late to know what you need. So in this post, I will chatting it up and discussing the Must Haves of Fall Fashions. Lets get started!

Dark washed jeans. Looks great with everything, I must say. I prefer skinny jeans since the top portion of fall clothing is layers. You do not want to look frumpy while wearing your Fall gear, do you? And dark washed jeans are far more flattering than those dreadful light washed jeans with the pre-ripped details. I am just saying!

Sweaters. Fair Isle, reindeer/animal, cable knit, cashmere, turtlenecks,and a select few of cardigans. The more annoying the pattern, the more you look great! I am talking about the whole Navajo styles! Tennis style ( V- neck) and Irish Fishermen is fab too! You can add a nice sweater with a crispy dark washed jean and your good, oh, and don’t forget the shoes (you know that has to be coming up!)The chunkier the knit is, the warmer you are. No, not those awful Christmas sweaters, we are still talking about fall here! Oh, and I do not see what the fuss is with those Awful Christmas Sweater parties, although they do seem intriguing. I do have a favorite holiday picture of myself and my sister, and we look great in our sweaters, but they are not horrible compared to everyone else’s. I just going to leave it as I am glad our parents did not torture us with ugly clothing. (Had to add a rant about Christmas sweaters…I know you lovers are out there!)

Boots. Tall leather boots-brown/chestnut is my personal fave. Think about equestrian/riding style. Uggs ( don’t hate just make sure you roll down your tall chestnut Uggs down you get away with it!) Flats on muted/nature colors, Sperry( I just had to add that for myself), and rainboots( mine have whales, but in the market/mood for some Hunters).

Jackets. Patagonia( in the market for the hunter green one), Northface ( have one, that is why I am in the market for the hunter green jacket, Herringbone blazer, Burberry trench/quilted anything ( dislike purple, but love the plum color). I like the Burberry short trench I think the long one would look silly on me since I am 5’2” and just be awk on). Lets not foget the puffer vests! And color would do. Make sure it is not colorful or crazy patterned-or not patterned at all. Oh, and faux fur! Make sure its is a solid color, not a crazy cheetah print. You’re not Serena Van der Woodsen.

Colors. Hunter green, maroon, cream,navy, orange ( pumpkin)and brown. There is no need to have bright colors in the Fall. You need to blend in with nature. Who does not want to look like a leaf?

Patterns. Fair Isle, plaid/flannel( mostly for guys), argyle, solid, and animals.

Accessories. Burberry scarf, knitted scarfs in colors above, and bows/headbands in the colors above.

Nail color. Brown, gold, deep green, deep red, teal, cream maybe and pumpkin. Mute is the word. I should not be talking since as of right now, I am wearing Essie Turquoise and Chaos which is a summer minty/sea foam green color.

I recommend you think about pumpkin latte’s at Starbucks, learn how to knit, drink apple cider, read by the fire, toast pumpkin seeds after you get your freshly painted nails a bath in pumpkin guts, and prance around in your Fall gear.

Stay preppy and do not fall out of Fall before Winter,

Chadsey

(And yes, I like to capitalize seasons!)

( I will posting a bunch of photos of what I was talking about!)
