Ms. Lumberjack

I’ve always enjoyed a good flannel. I don’t think they should be limited to men or boys, and I think that they can be fashionable and feminine. One of the things I love about fall is getting to wear my rainbow of flannels. I’ll admit I don’t own as many as I’d like to (I probably have 6 or 7), but I make the most of what I have. When wearing flannel, try to keep your jeans or pants on the tighter side- anything too loose or baggy will clash with the roominess of the flannel top. I like to wear my hair down, too, just to make sure no one confuses me for a boy!

  1. I Love Flannel shirts too! So comfy and so many color choices. I like that you paired the bold red with dark jeans. Great everyday outfit. I wish my hair looked like that when it was curled.

  2. You are the cutest! I lost my favorite flannel when I moved so I’m totally in the market for a new one. Love the way you styled this!

  4. Absolutely love this lady lumberjack look! I’ve been perusing your posts… cracking me up with all of this Halloween madness.

  5. First, you don’t look like a lumberjack. You really make flannel look very feminine. Back in the 70s, when I was in my 20s, it was very common for girls to wear flannel shirts and for me it was almost everyday. Back then they were way more in style then than they are now. Unfortunately, as we got older most of us dropped the flannels. I don’t remember wearing them after I turned 30. I’m 58 now , I still look fit & trim but l have no idea what people would think of me wearing them now. Sometimes I still miss them.
    Girls don’t usually like to wear what Mom wore but after my daughter saw quite a few pictures of me back in the day she decided she liked the look and bought a few for herself. She’s glad she did.
    Cool story: Back in my senior year of college 4 of my girlfriends and I held a contest. We decided to see how many days in a row we could wear flannel without skipping a day. We each put up $20 & the winner got $100. I won. The contest ended in early May, right before graduation, when the runnerup had to skip a day because of a wedding. She logged a 112 days straight. I got to 117 days before it got to warm to wear them.
