Hey everyone! Have you seen the proliferation of velvet around this fall? It’s definitely having it’s moment this fall and winter. This is one of those trends that can refresh your wardrobe and look nice for any holiday activities you may have. Don’t spend too much though because it’s a trend and will look too heavy once spring and summer come along. And then who knows about next fall?
This top is in a pretty fall color and can easily be worn during the holidays. The velvet makes it look a little more luxurious and dressed-up though this would look cute with jeans too. It’s available in black and a light gray. I didn’t wear any necklace with this because I thought the cut-out would be competing with a necklace.
I’ve paired it with my black pants (that are called jeggings but don’t fit like leggings at all). These pants are comfortable and easy to wear and black pants are a classic item that every wardrobe could use. Once you find a well fitting pair you will be wearing it for years.
You’ve seen the black booties many times (similar here and here) that show no signs of going out of style. And finishing this off with the scene-stealing purse that still brings a smile to my face every time I see it in the pictures.
This is a short post about clothing because my mind is on my homefront. We have finally found a house down in North Carolina that we are making an offer on (fingers crossed!) after my husband and our poor realtor visited dozens of homes while having me on video chat to see the house. Also, last night I got a message from our realtor for our Michigan home saying that someone is interested in buying our house for cash (!) but needs to move in right away! That of course kept me up most of the night trying to figure out how we could make that happen if indeed they really are interested in purchasing our home. I kept reminding myself of the saying that “worry is a down payment on an event that may not even come to pass”. Of course, the middle of the night is not the best time for rational thinking! I bet I’ll sleep well tonight! I hope you all have a well-rested weekend too!
