Work to Play: Flannel


Hi everyone! I’m excited to debut this new series with you. Since I don’t work in a formal office environment and I don’t report to the office everyday, I need a wardrobe that is very versatile, as do many of you. Therefore, anything that can be styled for work and for play is a win for me. You may have seen a sneak peek of one of these looks on Instagram last week.

I think flannel has a misperception of being casual, grunge, rugged, or masculine. However, flannel can also be really feminine and fun, too. My blue and white flannel is  from J.Crew Factory and sadly sold out, but you can easily find a similar look and I’ve tagged one for you below.

Pay special attention to the fit. You might want to size down if it’s a boyfriend fit since that will be a lot looser on your body.

For work:


Flannel (similar) | Skirt | Boots | Bag (I have the MM size)

For play:


Flannel (similar) | Jeans | Vest  (it’s reversible!!)| Shoes

(Dog sold separately 😉 )


Mrs | Tortoise (similar)

To keep flannel more feminine, try looking for brighter colors and flannels that include a lot of white, as opposed to dark flannels, like this one. It really helps keep your outfit looking fresh, feminine, and more polished.

In between:

I love using a flannel during the winter in place of a traditional cardigan. It can easily transition from work to play without changing clothes, and helps keep you warm if you work in a chilly office!
