Ladies and gentlemen… I give you THE blue door. Aka one of the most overused places to take a photo on UT campus. While it is a little on the cliché side (ok maybe a lot) I couldn’t resist. I’ve honestly always really liked it, and if it’s good enough for everybody else then I guess it’s good enough for me. Right? Right. In all seriousness though, this light blue is one of my favorite hues, which brings me to this flannel shirt.

There are several great pieces that make up this easy, casual outfit but my flannel shirt is really the cornerstone. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for a good flannel. During the fall and winter I basically live in them. They’re just so comfy and cozy! Plus they’re great for layering.  Flannel keeps you warm, but not overly so. I’m a bit of a power walker so if I wear anything much heavier than a flannel walking to class, when I get there I’ll most likely be sweating. Struggles.

Personally, I like my flannel shirts a little bigger just adding to the whole comfort factor. This shirt has the perfect tunic-y cut that I love. And did I mention that it’s on sale right now for just $35? AND that there are still tons of sizes left? But wait, there’s more! My jeans are also on sale right now for over a hundred bucks off the original price. It’s a great bargain for a unique pair of Frame jeans. They are the exact same cut as the ones I had on in my previous post, just made out of a more stretchy denim with the paneling detail.

Now for the shoes. I love the way they look… But these things killed my feet. The main reason I got them was because I thought they’d have a similar comfort level to a Converse type shoe. Boy was I wrong. The heel is hard as a rock and left me with two identical (and very painful!) blisters on both feet. This was the first time I had ever worn them though so I’m hoping that after I break them in a little more that they’ll be more tolerable. I’ll keep y’all updated.

Finally, we can’t forget about the accessories. I don’t have a whole lot of stud earrings, so I was happy when I was given this pair as a birthday gift. They were the perfect little addition to this outfit, especially since I wore my hair up. I’ve had this purse since high school and it is one that I consistently grab when I’m on the go. ‘On the go’ seems to be the general theme of my life, and this whole look is perfect for just that. A flannel and jeans is a simple go-to that you can easily throw on that’s still chic. Can you say #winning?
