I guess one good thing about living in Seattle is that the grass stays green all year! Since it is so wet all the time. I am hoping for a couple of snow days winter quarter. Last year we have 3 snow days in a row we practically got the whole week off it was awesome. But I think there is snow back home so that makes me happy because nothing is better then a white Christmas right? Maybe this red and green outfit just shows how excited I am for the holidays. 
So I have been studying for finals like crazy. My last one is on Wednesday in the afternoon so I will be headed home on Thursday morning. Just have to make it through 3 more days and I am home free. People have made it through worse. 
This outfit to me just feels totally 'lumberjackish' you know what I mean right? The boots, red plaid, olive coat. That makes for a lumberjack doesn't it? Anyways, I am sure I am not the only one that loves me a good flannel shirt in the winter! I have seem to worn a version of this outfit everyday for the past five days. No not red on red. But skinny jeans, flannel shirt, jacket, boots... and scarfs and long socks get added in once in a while. Enjoy your Monday.
love, Carlee


  1. haha lumberjackish.
    and yes, i love flannels! i don't even care if they go completely out of style years from now. i will wear them. even in front of my kids which will probably embarrass them haha

  2. You make the cutest lumberjack I've ever seen! That was my immediate association when I saw this outfit. I totally love outdoors inspired ensembles and this is perfect. Of course, down here in Tennessee we don't have any chance at a white Christmas- it's been in the 60s and 70s all month!
