Flannel is the uniform of the Pacific Northwest. It’s warm, that’s for sure, but it’s not usually incorporated into fashion-forward garments. Sometimes, Seattleites are called unstylish, but I disagree. And loads of Seattle Style Bloggers will prove otherwise.
I liked this jacket because it’s flannel and it’s stylish.
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Scarf: Fred Meyer’s
Bag: Craft fair in Harlem
It’s a classic biker jacket cut in an unexpected color and fabric. A perfect non-leather option. I even included it in a recent vegan motorcycle jacket post on my other blog.
I wore my jacket over a black maxi dress and added pops of color in the form of blue ballet flats, a bright pink belt, and a light gray-blue scarf. My bag from a Harlem craft fair matched so I carried it with me.
I thought this was a comfy and stylish look for an afternoon out with hubby. We went out for lunch and then checked out the Bellevue Arts Museum, which was showing an exhibit of paper clothes. The clothes were elaborate reproductions of period pieces from the 17th century and on. Of course photography was prohibited.
Luckily I got this shot though. I wanted hubby to pose in front of this pair of wings but he insisted I do it. He pointed out that I matched the color scheme of the wings–and he was right.
Do you enjoy visiting museums and galleries?
