feeling flannel | summertime throwback

I’m reluctant to say it, but I miss summer terribly. Although the relentless heat is often paired with daily complaints, with the current onset of winter, I’d love for the warmth to return. This flannel look was photographed this summer and never went up on the blog — a bit of a throwback, of sorts. It’s probably one of the softest flannels I’ve ever come across, with a slight watercolor effect and perfect, casual Vermonty vibe. I’d pair it with white Converse and a black shearling jacket for this season.

BDG plaid & shades of blue

Scarves can be tricky. Sometimes a tad too short, often not fluffy after their first wear – unless  you opt for oversized. My last two scarf purchases, both from UO, look rather long and overly plush at first, but when worn naturally, they take the perfect shape. This “brushed plaid” fringe-edged blanket scarf can be wrapped around once or twice to be worn long & dramatic or thick & cozy. I fell in love with the deep gem tones, just bold enough for brisk-weathered perfection. I paired it with a thin, light blue Brandy Melville sweater, black jeans and my classic Sperrys – daring to brave the chilly weather in lighter layers, but a solid mix of similar hues.

Today was my first Wednesday attending downtown Glens Falls’ “Take A Bite” night since last summer – and it was just as delicious as ever. A few of my coworkers and I spent the evening wandering around the downtown area, where I eventually decided on chicken satay from Aroy Dee Thai and a blueberry nutella crepe for dessert (both completely to die for). In all honesty, I was so busy enjoying the food that I didn’t take a single photo during the actual event, so there will most definitely be a post devoted to that next Wednesday!

For a semi-relaxed look, I paired this new ruffled tank with my favorite pair of jeans and black heeled booties with gold fixtures – almost sweet and edgy at the same time with the contrast between the ruffles and black leather boots & bag. The best of both!

spring days & daisies

The temps are dropping slightly here in Stellies (eh, 60s & low 70s), which means warmer pieces are popping up everywhere. Trying to channel the typical spring apparel (as it would be at home, although it’s technically fall over here), I found this daisy-print tank today to go over a light yellow lace bandeau and paired it with my favorite black jeans. Simple & sweet – so ready for spring!
