Styling Old Favorites

Wearing: Penfield Haverhill shirt via Madewell (old, love this) | J.Crew Factory skirt (navy not available; love the camel color) | Steve Madden boots | J.Crew Factory bracelet | J.Crew Factory tights

I featured this Madewell plaid flannel on the blog back in the fall. (See how I styled it with J.Crew’s herringbone vest + jeans.) I got this last year and looked everywhere online for it, but unfortunately it’s sold out. Madewell has a few other Penfield plaid shirts. I can’t say enough good things about mine.


I’m totally a believer in finding different ways to style the same piece of clothing, as I’ve said before. I’ve also had this J.Crew Factory skirt for awhile. By adding tights and boots, I get lots of wear out of this skirt year round. And navy is a great alternative to black in the winter months.


I also scored this J.Crew Factory bracelet during an after Christmas sale at a superrrr low price. Hannah, if you’re reading this, thank you! It’s the perfect accessory.

    Such a cute look! I have that same skirt and now you make me want to pair it with a plaid top… I only wish it was warmer here.
