I hope you all had a happy weekend. It is finally getting chilly here in Charlotte, and I love it! I do enjoy the sun, as it has a positive effect on my mood, but there is nothing like the Fall chill in the air for sleeping too. I won’t delve into this topic too much, but having or nearing menopause, I am nearly almost always hot, or warm. So, i love being cold at night and getting cozy under the covers. It just makes for better sleep. On a fashion note, I am talking about the trend for Fall-Velvet. I have quite a few velvet pieces in my wardrobe, and this is the styling of one piece and a sample from last year.
Speaking of soft and cozy materials, velvet has always been one of my favorites to wear. I find it always looks a bit luxurious, even at different price points. I remember having a pair of velvet black pants in my twenties that were a favorite.
Velvet is everywhere right now- shoes, boots, booties, dresses, handbags. I just bought these velvet earrings from Zara a few weeks ago. I loved the colors. It is a material i used to think of as wearing just on special occasions or Holidays such as Christmas, but that has changed.
I decided this year I would add more quality pieces to my closet in the form of silk blouses and cashmere. This top is labeled Haute Hippie, a designer brand in which i recently became familiar. I was looking on Poshmark ( read about this on-line thrift shop HERE) and was looking for silk blouses. I adored the colors in this flouncy floral romantic blouse. I paired this colorful blouse with a rich velvet burgundy blazer I bought also at Poshmark several years ago. The textured pointed boots are from Zara last year.
Here are a few looks from my style look book.. aka the blog, showing my love for a great velvet blazer and velvet dress.
