POW 3: What’s plaid and cozy?

 Even my son loves this shirt! And look! SNOW!

Even my son loves this shirt! And look! SNOW!

When I was working on the POW concept (Piece of the Week, yes, I am ignoring the “the”), I figured there were just some garments that I could not make into the full range from casual to work to special occasion. So, I started challenging myself. I quickly decided I could not do flannel. Casual would be easy, as would the Thursday look. But very professional or special occasion? No way! And then I got thinking. In abut ten minutes I had more than enough outfits ideas for even special occasion. The challenge was fun.  So, flannel it is! This flannel shirt I am featuring is, wait for it… currently available! Shocking, I know. In the future most POW will feature a currently available piece. The POW is the L.L. Bean Slightly Fitted Scotch Plaid Shirt in Deep Evergreen Tartan. This particular shirt was a birthday \ gift from my brother. As a Maine native, L.L. Bean is my go-to place for all things flannel. I love the colors in this one. It’s got the dark blue and green I love in Black Watch plaid, but with white, orange, and pink. It’s lovely and cozy!

 

As with our last POW, I will show you how to work this shirt seven different outfits—a full week!  Again, I am breaking this “week” of outfits over two weeks. Unlike the last two weeks, I and starting Tuesday with the comfortable, “No place like home” Tuesday them, instead of Manic Monday. I will then post Thursday and Saturday this week. Next week I’ll post Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.  Then, that Sunday I will announce the next POW, which is an item that is currently available cabi Spring 2016 garment—and one that was request!
