Flannel Fest 2018

It's officially my favorite time of year: FALL!!! There are so many reasons why I love fall...mainly because it means hunting season is back AND flannel's are officially back in my closet! YAYY (insert dancing emoji).

If you've followed me on social media for any length of time you've probably noticed when I find a piece of clothing / gear (hat, gloves, vest, shirt, whatever it might be) that I LOVE, I basically wear it on repeat. #sorrynotsorry I'm not a huge shopper like a lot of girls...don't get me wrong, I love fashion and clothing but I just don't have time to go shopping often and I'm honestly a little too cheap to spend money on trendy clothing I'll only wear a couple times. That's probably because growing up I was never given a "back to school" budget for clothing. Neither of my parents are big into fashion or shopping so it's just not something I did often. Instead, I was the girl who would happily shop in my friend's closets. I would gladly expect their hand-me-downs and re-work them to fit my style. That's why now, as an adult, when shopping I look for these key things:

  • pieces that are timeless

  • items I can re-work year after year

  • made from good quality materials

  • fit well

  • won't break the bank

These may sound like "no duh" things to look for in clothing, but it's easy to forget them as we are constantly bombarded by the newest trends and trying to keep up with what's in style.

Thankfully, there is one trend that never seems to go out of style: The Flannel. It's one of my all time favorite pieces for fall and each year Bass Pro Shops and now Cabela's celebrate fall with #FlannelFest which basically means they have every flannel you could possible dream of in stock! It's perfect because I can shop for my hunting gear and update my wardrobe all at the same location, which saves me time and gets me back outdoors faster. HALLELUJAH. And ladies for those of you who might not hunt or visit Bass Pro Shops or Cabela's often, YES - they have cute clothing - I know, SHOCKER!!!

If you're looking for the perfect flannel tunic or have a longer torso - THIS IS IT! Super soft, warm and perfect for pairing with your favorite pair of jeans or leggings. I'm wearing a size small. It fits true to size and wears similar to that over-sized boyfriend flannel we all love so much but without the added bulk.

Weather your headed out to run errands, going out with your girlfriends or even at hunting camp this is red/black buffalo flannel will quickly become your go-to top. I'm going to have to order this in every color possible - it's that good! I'm wearing a small. Fits true to size.

I can't help but think about cousin Eddy from Christmas Vacation when I see this hat and I LOVE IT! Super soft and warm this faux fur hat is the perfect addition for extreme cold. One size fits most and it really does. I have a peanut size head (so very small) and it fits me and also Caleb.

Dorfman Pacific Buffalo Plaid Trapper Hat for Ladies

Color: Red Plaid

That rule of "no white after Labor Day" is dead to me and many of my fashion forward friends. So for those women who dare to throw the rule book out the window (sort of) this top is a beautiful addition to transition your favorite white jeans into fall! I'm wearing a size XS. Fits a little longer in the torso almost like a tunic.

Bob Timberlake Greenbrier Notch-Neck Blouse for Ladies

Color: Fig Plaid

If you are active in the outdoors, whether that's hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, kayaking - wherever your adventure takes you - this is the top for you! This perfect mid-weight top made by Ascend has dry wicking technology to lift the moisture right off your skin, so when the pressure is on, the sweat is off. Quick drying, moisture transport fabric keep dry and comfortable so you can adventure longer.

I'm wearing an XS. I have a longer torso and this shirt is on the brink of being shorter than I normally would like and fits a tad wide. So if you are torn between two sizes (say between a Small or Medium) I would consider sizing down one size on this top.

Ascend Trek II Flannel Shirt for Ladies

Color: Burnt Olive

I'm a huge believer in hats and dry shampoo. I don't have time to constantly be styling my hair or want the damage that comes along with that. This hat is the perfect fall accessory to throw on when you want to look put together but don't have the time to actually do anything. Pair it with your favorite white T or really any neutral top for a more polished look to hide that day old or even multiple day old hair. YES! YES! YES!

Quagga Plaid and Suede Ball Cap for Ladies

Flannels are timeless, soft, warm, durable and I can style them so many different ways! Even when I don't have time to "get ready" it looks like I've made a solid effort. #BassProShops and #Cabelas have all your flannel needs...even for men too!
