Flannel & Fur

So this next one was a bit of a challenge.

See, I HAVE flannel and fur — a great vest, a Brawny flannel — but put together, it made me look like a mountain man. Like, I probably wouldn’t even wear it to pick up food in Baltimore, let alone brag about it on a blog.

Well, first I can brag about Emily’s outfit.

It’s beautiful, and keeps reminding me of something: I want a fur coat. I want one so badly. I think they look so elegant, and are still so functional. The ultimate for style AND comfort.
I love them. I love it.

Also, I think the fur coat adds a sleek edge to her playful ripped jeans and flannel scarf. Kinda like a mullet — business and party all in one (she’ll kill me for that). She also just looks hot — quite the accomplishment when bundled in layers.
However, if we’re being honest, the doggy and his fur wins this show.

And then there was me. I had to figure out something so we could get the second double post up — and I couldn’t bring myself to tuck in my flannel and call it fashionable.

So I went with my recent fur find, furry earmuffs.

And, yes, the color of the ‘muffs are a little off. I wouldn’t have preferred it with this outfit, but I did desperately want to put them on display. Because there are some serious benefits to the earmuffs.

  1. Warm ears and no hat hair. Anyone with thin hair (I feel ya girl) knows what a blessing this is.
  2. It’s just a touch of (faux) fur. For anyone who’s environmentally conscious, it allows you to play with winter fabrics without feeling like PETA’s watching.
  3. They’re different. And that makes them fun. They’re actually one of the two things that have warranted office commentary (and I bask in that shit).

Anyways, between the cussing and the mullet-reference, Emily’s definitely stealing the keyboard from me next time.
