Flannel

When I get dressed in the morning, my main goal is to be comfortable! 

When you think of winter, what comes to mind? For me, I think about the obvious temperature drop, hibernating in my house, sitting by the fire, baked goods, eating carbs more often than I should and making sure all of my outfits are cozy. 

I can always appreciate a nice plaid shirt in the winter. You can dress it up or you can dress it down. I usually wear flannels with jeans and dress it up with a nice boot, but today I wanted to do something a little bit different. I thought why not keep it all the way cozy and pair them with some sweats I made and my adidas boots.

If you want to know something about me I really can't stand wearing jeans. I think I only own two pairs. The reason why I started making my own pants was because I couldn't find anything that was comfortable and looked good on me. Jeans are very restricting and I despise zippers. I'm hoping to learn to love jeans in the future and maybe find a brand that fits me the way I like but until then, I'm fine wearing the two pairs I have when an outfit calls for it or I can just make my own. I handmade these sweats as well -- they have an elastic waistband and they're super soft. I feel like I'm wearing pajamas! I found the flannel shirt when I was on a date with my lady in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I can't think of the name of the store because it was a very small mom and pop shop but we wanted to check the place out and the only thing that was worth buying was the flannel. I used to wear red a lot when I was younger and it was even my favorite color at one point. When I transitioned to darker clothing I gave away all my red stuff. This is officially my first red shirt since then and it just so happens to be a flannel and I'm feeling it! I think I'll try to buy more red items in the future. 

You know it's cold in these streets so I added my Mighty Healthy windbreaker to compliment the fit. 

How do you like to compliment your flannel shirts? Do you call them flannel shirts or just plaid shirts?
