Velvet Blazer -Silk Blouse and Jeans

 

Hello friends,

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.

    Velvet is such a fun material and can be worn in so many ways, and yet always looks classic and lovely. You are exactly that, Jess, classic and lovely. – Amy

    Love the whole outfit but I’m especially taken with that blouse. Gorgeous!

    I *wish* we had Poshmark here. Kind of cool they have online thrifting.

    I’ve been a velvet hoarder for a few years now. It is so luxurious and cozy to wear.

      Thank you Suzanne! I fell in love with the print and colors in this blouse. poshmark has been good to me lately! I really have bought more sweater dresses and blouses from their recently as you can get good deals. I dont do well with my condition standing for long periods, so this makes thrifting easier for me. i put up things for sale, but it really is a buyers maket! I am also a velvet hoarder! hehe. have always loved it. have a great week! xx

    Great looks! You look so pretty and autumnal! Love love love velvet; always so rich and sumptuous looking. I’ve had a simple midnight blue straight scoopneck dress for years that I found at a consignment shop for $10 and like to add different scarves or tights with that. Bought a pair of high heeled blue velvet boots late last winter that I love the look of, but ugh…so hard to walk in, so those are probably heading to Poshmark!

      Thank you Kristin! Fall is my fav time of year for dressing, love the colors, the textures, the layering. I have always worn velvet and love it. oh, your dress sounds lovely! There are velvet booties out there in blue that you could get with a small block heel that would be easier to walk in. Shoes arent always easy! xx
