Fashion Over Fifty: Flannel and Lace

One year later, and I'm still talking about flannel.  That's because it's bigger and better than ever!  Where last year flannel was just emerging as a major trend, this year it is at FULL Peak!  Every store, every advertisement, every blog, someone is wearing flannel!

Well, I still have my one-of-a-kind flannel and lace shirt I bought last year from Express.  I thought it was so unique with the lace insets, that I bought it on the spot when it wasn't even on sale!  And I'm glad I did, because now I can wear it again this season!

I love this shirt because it is a very soft, thin flannel.  Not like normal, thick, uncomfortable flannel shirts.  It also has the unique detail of black lace insets on the sleeves and back.  I love the mix of feminine and masculine, don't you?

It is a super long shirt that goes way past my butt,  so it's very appropriate to wear with leggings or tight skinny jeans.

In Last Year's Post, I wore my flannel shirt tucked in, with dark denim, tall boots, and a black tank top. This year,  I chose to leave it un-tucked, like a cardigan, and I wore it with a new grey and black flecked top from J.C. Penney.  I got this top on sale for only $14.99!

 I believe I have the same pair of dark jeans on, but I'm carrying my old-faithful Express Bucket Bag and wearing my new Liz Claiborne booties that I recently showed you HERE.

For jewelry, I chose an edgy silver chain necklace I just picked up on clearance at H&M last weekend.

We've been having an unseasonably warm Fall here in North Western Wisconsin, so a jacket isn't really necessary except in the early mornings or evenings.  My long sleeve, flannel shirt was the only outerwear I needed on a warm Fall day.

Have a great day!  Amy

  1. The tartan with the lace is such a lovely combination.

  2. I love flannel! I'm always so happy to break out my plaid when fall comes. Such a fun combo of the lace and plaid.

  3. Cute! The lace detailing is so pretty!

  4. That lace detail is so, so pretty! I just love the color of your shirt, too. It really has peaked this year!


  5. You have been killing it lately with the layers and the toppers/jackets you have used on top. This flannel+lace shirt works as a little light cardigan. Love the dark oxblood shade and the lace sleeves, too.

    Have a great Monday Amy! =)

  6. I love that color flannel! It looks perfect :) I am so excited for the weather to finally get cool enough here to enjoy some fall fashion! Maybe we can get below 90 soon :) Have a great day!
