Fashion Friday – Button Up Denim & Flannel

Happy Fashion Friday!

Spring has officially sprung in the mountains and it honestly feels a bit strange.  I normally feel overjoyed to see the red buds and first daffodils of the season, but It feels really odd to see them in February.  I ran outside all week in skirts too.  What a peculiar year 2017 is shaping up to be!

In other life news… 

Owen turned three this week.  HOW did that happen?

My brother Tommy and his fiance Erica are coming to visit this weekend.  They decided to get married in ASHEVILLE, so I am elated to help them figure stuff out.

AND I spoke way too soon about Makena Rose sleeping through the night.  I totally jinxed it because just as soon as my post published saying she was doing better, she started peeing in her crate again.  The Hubs and I are back to rotating letting her out at 5AM… hoping she can push it to 6-7AM in the near future.  Can I put the crying emoji here???

Need to catch up on this week’s posts?

Let’s get on to some Fashion Friday fun now!  I love this outfit because I got all of these pieces in Fall and had been wearing them in different ways, but I mixed them up to put together an outfit that is perfect for early spring.

My MIL bought me this flannel for Thanksgiving and I’ve been wearing it untucked with cuff sleeves and jeans on repeat.  For this look I wore the sleeves long and tied it at the waist.  It’s a fun way to get more use out of what I have.

The button up denim skirt is the same one you saw in early Fall, but I have a feeling I’m going to be wearing a lot more of it in the spring.

Depending on how warm it is you can do leggings and boots or just bare legs and flats.  There have been several days so far this year already that I could get away with this outfit without the leggings.  Crazy, huh?

So there’s just a little inspiration to look at the items you  have in your closet in a different way!  Try this look for spring and let me know what you think.

And of course have a beautiful weekend.  I’d love to hear the highlights of your week, or what you are up to this weekend in the comments.

    This is a super cute outfit – and I never would have thought of pairing a denim skirt with leggings for winter! SO cute!

    terms of children in your life. They grow up fast !

    I love flannel! I’m still loving that flannel shirt dress I got on clearance at Target for $8! I can’t wait to wear it again this week, with the belt that you suggested.

    Love that jean skirt on you!

    This is beautiful; you look so feminine and sweet. And guess what? It’s snowing here… I love weather; it always keeps us excited.

    Omg- you’re SO CUTE! And you’re making me really want to rock the denim and plaid look 😛

    Cute idea! I would not have thought to add the leggings to a denim skirt- looking good Julie! Have a great weekend !

      Thanks! I bet you don’t even NEED leggings anymore!

  11. I usually save my denim skirt for summer but great idea to add the leggings

    Take it from an old rescue gal with 30 years in the “business” so to speak….try picking up her water and putting down just a bowl of ice cubes in the evening instead. Less intake, but enough to wet her whistle too. See if that trick doesn’t help her to learn to hold it better. When they are peeing while in the crate at her age, I would guess her water intake is just too heavy…..but it’s just my critter experience talking. If it continues you may want to consult your vet to be sure she isn’t harboring a slight uti.

      Thanks for the advice Shelly! We will try it and I might have her checked out just in case.

    You know I love a good plaid button down with denim. The temps are plummeting for a bit this weekend–this would be a great compromise with the spring feels and the change of temps! Asheville will be PERFECTION for a wedding… I’m almost jealous of them 😀
    Have a great weekend, Julie!
