Woodland Creatures

Just call me Lumberjack Jo! This season, my favorite look (besides my obvious adoration of everything sparkly) is the "I just came out of a log cabin in the woods of Colorado" look. It seems that every time I go shopping I find mannequins clothed in items that will keep you bundled in the thick of a forest. What isn't there to love about this perfect combination of cozy and cute? On that note, here are a few photos of my spin on this woodsy trend and also different articles that inspire and enhance it.

[Flannel: Target (boys section!) / Boots: Target / Hat: Forever 21 / Shorts: Old Navy]
I believe the key to achieving a forest friendly look is layers, layers, layers. I love flannels like this one because you can pair it with so many things; add a sweater, scarf, colored tee, etc (I wear mine over EVERYTHING). I'm a big fan of the shorts + tights look as well, it allows you to reuse your summer shorts even throughout the fall! I debated a while over the ankle booties, but now I'm fully convinced of their charm and not to mention their comfort!

[Headband: New Zealand / Sweater: Forever 21 / Skirt: Nordstrom Rack / Boots: The Buckle]
An oversized sweater is one of your main ingredients! Truly, anything knit will give you automatic success with this trend. I paired my sweater with this adorable floral skirt that adds a bit of a romantic feel.
  I HAD to have these outrageous boots the minute I saw them, also considering the fact that you can wear these bad boys various ways (as seen above).

Well if you haven't noticed, I've bought items in the wrong section. But can you blame me? Not only are they stylish, they're also extremely affordable (just take a gander at that sweater)! I already have multiple knit headbands to keep my head warm and fashionable. Also, I think a hint of leather from these moto boots help balance out this look to give it bit of an edge.

  1. Tweed shorts are a perfect article to a cozy look! I also love the idea of pairing shoes with ankle socks, or again, shorts with tights.
  2. What screams log cabin more than fur? I'm ready to stoke the fire with this hat.
  3. Again, anything knit accomplishes this look, just like these gloves.
  4. The more tights, the merrier! I love tights like these with a pattern or texture for fall.
  5. No explanation necessary, flannel = lumberjack.
  6. Add denim to an outfit and you're ready to go. This shirt would go great with an oversized sweater.
  7. Perfect sweater for a storm!
Well I hope you've been inspired by these pieces and also ready to cuddle by the fire this Winter!
