Hello, and happy FRIDAY! This weekend is going to be a packed one for me, with lots of friends visiting from out of town, house parties and dinners – it’s going to be busy but I can’t wait! Plus it’s supposed to be sunny, which is a plus, seeing how rainy and gloomy it was yesterday.
In other news, let’s talk about how much I love this bright and cheery red vest and black and red flannel that I’m wearing. I’ve noticed that I am really drawn to Buffalo Plaid lately and am starting to see quite a collection of similar pieces in my closet. I actually just bought this jacket at a sample sale and recently wore this red and black plaid shirt coat while up in Warwick a few weeks ago.
Anyway, my vest and shirt are both from Eddie Bauer, a brand I grew up being very familiar with, especially since I’m from Seattle where flannels, plaids and puffy vests were, and are still very key pieces to us Pacific Northwest folk. :) So when the brand asked me to style up a couple of their clothing, I decided to show how to mix more casual, outdoorsy pieces with slightly more streamlined black pants and knee high boots. Voila, chic and cozy!
Take a look, if you’d like. xo
For those of you that aren’t as familiar with the brand, did you know that Eddie Bauer built the first down jacket patented in America?
Pretty cool, right?

P.S. Right now, Eddie Bauer is having a huge Veterans Day sale through November 11th, so head on over to the site and take a peek! I’m really digging this jacket and these flannel shirts. So cozy!
P.P.S. Click below to see a few fun photos from the Eddie Bauer pop-up shop on 5th ave and 15th street Casey I went to on Wednesday night. It was so much fun. They even had a Twitter-activated vending machine, which dispensed gifts, products, and discount promotions and will be doing so for the next two weeks to anyone who shares on social while in the store using @eddiebauer and #liveyouradventure. My tweet had to do with attempting to ski diamond runs with my Dad. Quite an adventure if you ask me! xo
