Happy Monday! I’m feeling all the cozy vibes today with fresh snow on the ground and a fire on the hearth. So I thought it would be a good day to layer on a little fun with a warm, cozy flannel shirt. Yes, we’re going super casual today. But don’t worry, I’ll have plenty of dressier outfits coming soon.

I’m not one to reach for a flannel shirt unless I’m reminded to. And it just so happens that recently several readers and YouTube viewers have requested that I style flannel shirts, similarly to the way I’ve styled pullover sweaters in this video. In fact, I’ll be sharing a similar video with style tips for flannel shirts and sweatshirts soon. But today let’s just break down this one fun outfit.
When I do wear flannel shirts I prefer to keep them a little more interesting by using layers. And I absolutely love to mix things up by combining patterns with those layers. That’s why I think it’s such a good idea to have a striped black and white, navy and white or other classic combination t-shirt in your winter wardrobe. They’re great for adding interest beneath a patterned shirt of any kind, including flannel plaid.
Would this outfit work with a solid tee underneath? Absolutely! But mixing plaids and stripes is too fun to pass up. I would also wear this fuller flannel shirt with a graphic tee, such as this one or this one, both from Sadie & Jane, my favorite source for Christian graphic tees.
By the way, I went ahead and got my usual size medium in this flannel shirt from Target. It’s a generous fit, but that allows me ample room for layering.
Of course, I didn’t end my layering there. I also added my classic navy quilted vest. I’ve had this navy vest for several years at least. But Talbots still has a similar version this year. It is just about sold out, but I also found one at Target and at Lands’ End. And, because both of those are running low in some sizes, too, I found this one at Eddie Bauer. I enjoy wearing my vest on car trips in the fall and winter because they’re an easy layer to wear for warmth without all the bulk.
You could certainly wear this fun outfit with sneakers or booties. But I grabbed my water resistant boots with faux fur lining to kick up the style quotient a notch. These rich chocolate boots feature a leather upper with faux fur lining throughout the inside, making them super warm and oh so soft and cozy. They come in other colors, too, and, at 33% off, they’re selling out fast.
I think a lot of jewelry would look out of place with an outfit like this one, so I just wore my simple split hoop earrings and called it a day. And really, with the layered tops and the boots over my jeans, I think there’s plenty going on here. Don’t you?
Do you enjoy wearing flannel shirts? One of the things I do love about these traditional casual button up shirts is that they frequently come in beautiful color combinations. I’ve created a shopping widget below with lots of flannel shirt options. For everything else I’ve shown here, you can shop the links in the copy or in the captions under the photos.
Thanks so much for stopping in today. I hope you have a fantastic Monday that sets you up for a productive and pleasant week. But if you are ill, I wish you a speedy recovery. Take care, ladies! You’re on my heart and mind. Blessings.

Blessed for My Day
My husband has been preaching through the qualities of the fruit of the Spirit for the past couple of months. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. They’re sometimes easier for me to rattle off than live out in real life. But one of the most impactful ways we can identify ourselves as believers to others and share God’s character with His world is to display these characteristics in our behavior and words.
So how can we demonstrate love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness and self-control…when push comes to shove, when others push our buttons and when we’re pushed beyond our natural abilities? We must tap into the deep reservoirs of the Holy Spirit and choose to live obedient to His gentle proddings. Why not pause right now and commit to walking in step with the Holy Spirit today? Then listen for His gentle, quiet voice throughout your day, obey Him and trust Him to do the rest.
But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. ~ Galatians 5:16
