check please...

i don't know if it's just me or what, but i swear the number of red n black checked flannel shirts worn around town has multiplied ten fold. lumberjack chic is taking over the city. and it's not just cool hipster types. i'm seeing everyone in them. i'm not gonna lie, i have a fair share of flannel/plaid shirts and even i have one of these lumberjack numbers. purchased at target for $15. i have always liked the look of this style and honestly, am surprised at how trendy it is right now. i saw a big gap ad, all lumberjack chic. i don't know if that is sparking the craze, but i literally saw four people at alterra today in them. one being myself. ugh.

i remember this cover from elle mag, and it revisited my love for the plaid:

i remember when that came out, i busted out the same look. big western belt and turquoise necklace. what a copycat i am. then i saw one of the olsen sisters wearing this:
and i was inspired to work the whole lumberjack chic meets rocker chic look...resulting in a really cool style. i think that's the best way to style this look. i like wearing my flannel with my long sleeve ivory rebecca beeson thermal under it, my current elliott elephant bell jeans with my new favorite hat, a cable knit newsboy hat with brown wood buttons. i can't find a pic of the exact hat, but it looks kinda like this one:
i've recently been on a shopping hiatus, since i moved, and i said i couldn't buy myself one thing for the rest of the year (gross). but i saw these boots, and NEED THEM ASAP.

these need to be in my closet by christmas. i've been doing so well not shopping, but i swear i put these jeffrey campbell tall engineer boots in my online shopping cart once a week. i am to the point of obsessing. i've styled at least twelve perfect outfits with these boots as the centerpiece. one being very lumberjack chic. why can't i just win the lottery?
