Cabin Style

Colder weather is here, and nothing sounds better than staying in a cozy cabin. This past weekend I spent a night at one in northern Michigan, which is already experiencing some snow. Cabin style needs to find the balance of being both cute and comfortable, so here are my four main staples for your next cabin trip:


If you decide to go on a walk outside, you need to be prepared for all kinds of weather. If you’re trying to pack less, I think Bean Boots are the best all around footwear for cold, rain, snow, etc. I have the thinsulate version, when paired with thick socks are perfect for the elements.


I definitely grew up with fleeces, but they’ve seemed to have popped up as a huge trend over the past 5 years. From Patagonia to L.L. Bean, fleece pullovers and zip ups are perfect for cooler weather. They make for a great casual style as opposed to wearing a hoodie. The L.L. Bean version is my favorite!


No need for sweat pants when you have a pair of pants just as comfortable and look a lot better. Jeggings, or in this case Uniqlo’s legging pant, are perfect for cabin style because they’re so comfortable while still looking put together. I own them in indigo and white and wear them all the time. The best part about them is the top of the pants look like real pants with belt loops and a button.


Can’t have a cabin style post without mentioning the staple of every cold weather casual wardrobe. The flannel shirt is the warmest base layer around and looks great layered under vests and sweaters. I can never have enough! My favorite flannels come from L.L. Bean, Land’s End, and Uniqlo.

    These are all awesome pieces and also work great for snowy days up North (Canadian here!). I love how you can layer flannels under fleeces creating so many outfit combos!

    I will be 60 next week and just wanted to thank you, because your style is classic and applies to every age female who wants to own distinct classy items that will wear well with time. It is so refreshing to see a feminine woman dress like a lady for every occasion in clothes for every age. I love your posts and IG account.
