Today was another very chilly day. In retrospect, I definitely should have shot some outfit photos the day before - it was a balmy 60 degrees! That's unheard of for January in NoVA. Naturally, the temperature dropped again overnight to the usual 25 degrees, which was actually warmer than it has been recently, especially given the polar vortex that hit last week.

The one upside to the weather was that I was able to really put to use my new flannel (in the Wallace Plaid pattern) from LL.Bean! If you've been watching my Instagram stories, you'll have seen that I just recently got this in the mail. They sent the relaxed fit version, which I thought was just a tad bit oversized, so I exchanged it for the slightly fitted flannel in the same color and I love it. Thankfully, LL.Bean has fantastic customer service and the exchange was easy and quick.

I used one of my favorite tricks in the winter time, which is to wear a thin turtleneck underneath a flannel (or any button-up). As an added layer, I added a thinner gray sweater. This one is one of my most-worn sweaters in my wardrobe; I bought it last year and it's such a classic piece. I love the adorable ruffle sleeve details, as well. They pair wonderfully with the subtle cable knit. I also added this linked tortoise necklace from J.Crew Factory which I've had for years now. They make a similar version (in a lighter color) which I've linked below; it's great for when you want to add a statement to an outfit, as such a neutral color goes with almost any combination.

For pants, I'm wearing my best-kept secret: these "Stevie" pants from Old Navy. They're essentially an exact dupe for the Lilly Pulitzer travel pants, at a much better price. They feel like leggings, but with piping down the center, sides, and back of the legs that give it an equestrian detail and make them more dressy. I especially like pairing them with riding boots to emphasize the equestrian feel. Seriously, these are hands-down the most comfortable pair of "pants" (if I can even call them that - they really are just leggings masquerading as dress pants) I own, and I would highly recommend them. Last I checked, they come in this classic navy, black, and a gray color; any would make great additions to a wardrobe. As a plus, they come in tall and petite sizes.

Hope you all are having a great January thus far!
