Are you liking the flannel shirt/plaid shirt trend that is popular right now? I was recently doing some back to school shopping with my daughter in the Brass Plum department (teen department) at Nordstrom and spotted three flannel shirts that I thought would be great additions to my late summer/fall wardrobe. Do you like to shop in the teen department? I always find the best pieces in Brass Plum and I always love the price!! Seriously…. these shirts were $39 a piece! I also want to mention that my all time favorite pair of white jeans came from that department last summer. I love a good pair of jeans, and I often splurge on higher end brands, but why would you when you can buy these?! And they were under $60!!
I’m still wearing white jeans and will continue to wear them through October. Growing up I always felt I could only wear white pants Memorial Day through Labor Day……what do you think about that? Maybe that was more of a midwest and east coast rule? Now that I’ve been living in the bay area for the last 30 years….(gulp), and our warmest months tend to be September and October, I feel very comfortable wearing this crisp and easy color through the fall months.
I love the red and navy blue flannel with the white, but decided to pair it with a pair of dark jeans as well.
My teens think this hat looks like Pharrell’s hat, which it kind of does, but I’ve decided that it’s okay because I really like Pharrell! He is a hip guy in his 40’s so I will take that as a compliment from my girls! 😉
The below flannel I found at Forever 21 while shopping with my daughter recently. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites and it was only $20!! Sometimes I find the best pieces there….seriously. I give my kids 30 minutes in that store……I set my timer and when it goes off we are done. I find F21 to be very overwhelming and I think that my kids can’t even concentrate because there is so much going on, but give them a time limit and they start to focus a bit more. I’ll be honest with you, when I’m shopping alone I do sometimes drop into Forever 21 just to check things out at a more leisurely pace without the timer in place.
Hard to believe we are wrapping up summer and heading into fall!
What are your thoughts about white jeans? Are you wearing flannel this season?
