The “F” Word(s): Flannel and Fur

If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you know how rough of a week I’ve been having at work. Today was only a slight exception, considering the fact that I only had a mandatory class to attend. It honestly seems like nurses never sleep! Nevertheless, I thought this day an opportunity to dress up in something other than scrubs for a change. Keep reading ahead to find out how I rocked 2 of fall’s closet staples: flannel and fur.

If you want a stylish, yet comfortable combination, consider pairing a flannel shirt with a fur vest. I opted for an oversized (duh!) red, blue, and green flannel shirt (XL in Men’s from Belk) and a longline taupe fur vest (from Banana Republic) .


For my bottoms, I grabbed my solid black leggings. The best pair of leggings that I own are made of nylon and not cotton. I find that cotton easily fades after many washes and attracts lint. These nylon leggings don’t, and are just as black as the day I first bought them, and I’ve had them for years!


I didn’t opt for any fancy footwork, just a good ol’ pair of leather combat boots (from Rack Room Shoes).


If you guys saw on Instagram, I am now a caramel-colored girl…well…not permanently. I purchased some new hair and I’m honestly still trying to get used to the color. Today, I thought I’d wear it off of my neck and tie it up using a couple of braids. I simply parted my hair in 2, braided one side, then the other. I then pinned the ends of each braid to the opposite side of my head to make a messy milkmaid hairstyle.



As an added accessory, I kept these rose gold sunnies from New York and Company by my side.


It’s that 2-week mark again, so I had to go to my favorite nail salon to get a refill. I must say, this color looks absolutely beautiful in the sunlight. I’m not positive of the color, but it’s by OPI. (I’m almost certain it’s from the “Holland” Spring Collection of 2012.)


I hope you all enjoyed this post! Stay tuned for more!
