Double the Checks

by - Friday, December 12, 2014

My obsession with gingham has finally waned. Taking its place are larger check patterns, ie: buffalo check (shirt below, ordered pants to try), Burberry-esque (scarf below), a mix of plaid with buffalo check (shirt here). Perhaps due to a few unseasonal winter-like days, I've been gravitating towards flannel fabric often, and as a result, been quite picky about the pattern as well as the fabric.

Speaking of flannel, I recently discovered microfleece sheets, which are amazing to sleep in! I stumbled upon them by accident and was sold when a few reviewers preferred them over even flannel sheets. I don't have trouble sleeping, but do sometimes get cold periodically throughout the night. We've been using regular ol' cotton sheets and just doubling up on blankets once temperatures drop. The microfleece sheets have been a life changer. Seriously.
