LumberJane Style 101

Alright. I’ve tried to avoid the flannel trend for a few years now. I always loved the way fashionable girls looked in the oversized buttondowns, but I didn’t think it was quite my style to wear plaid.

I would see MK and Ashley rocking the oversized ones…

And girls on Pinterest looking so cool…

   

But once I found an amazing deal in the young men’s section of Kohl’s the other day, I’m a changed girl. Not only is the buttondown the softest thing ever, it is also the perfect amount of warmth for the up-and-down temperatures in Valdosta.

After some debate about which plaid color I should get, I decided on red. It’s the classic color, it goes with a lot, and I need more red in my life. Especially since  the Gray Cloud is in full effect right now (I’m a sucker for a good gray sweater!).

Go ahead. Call me Lumberjane. I’m proud of my new purchase. And for $17, you would be too. I paired it with my chunky, grey cable knit circle scarf from Festivity, jeans from Forever21, and my fav Steve Madden boots.

I was so warm and cozy while I was in class all day. With the size large flannel, it was like I had my pajamas on. Heaven.

I wonder which color I’ll get next….

I hope ya’ll had a fun and safe Halloween!

I’ll tell you what I want…what I really REALLY want

……an Hermes Birkin bag!

But who doesn’t? This might sound overly typical, and frankly, I’m not ashamed of that. One day, when I am hugely successful and I want to reward myself, I will get my very own Birkin.

(fingers crossed…yes, I dream big)

Until then, I’m fakin it.

So my boss and her sisters recently went to England to visit family (which just so happens to be the BF’s family). Luckily, they brought me back an amazing present! Honestly, I would’ve been pleased with a keychain saying “I love London” but that’s just because I’m a touristy loser and I love the little things in life. Of course, I was blown away by what they actually gave me.

I’ll start with the bag. Feast your eyes, ladies and gents.

She’s a beaut, isn’t she?

That’s a pretty darn good Birkin lookalike, don’t ya think? Gosh, I love her.

One thing you should know about me is when I really love something, I can’t stop looking at it. I always have to have that something in my peripheral vision, on my person, or in my presence. Needless to say, I immediately put my stuff in this bag and it hasn’t been empty since.

Thanks to the Atlanta Activewear girls and my fabulous bag…I’m another step closer to being just like the fashionable Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham.

Do you see the resemblance?? Maybe squint a little (tehehe).

 A real Birkin is what I want…what I really really want.

But I’m feelin’ really really good with what I got for now.

There will be more blog posts about my presents from England to come soon! So stay tuned my friends.

I’ll be sure to Instagram a pic of my outfit later! I’ll totally be wearing the bag. Follow me @ emmafakesit and look for my #OOTD.

Happy 4th!
