If You're Feeling Blue...

Since velvet is a big trend right now, I wanted to jump aboard the velvet train before it leaves the station. I have a lovely blue velvet top that I wanted to wear with something that would keep my look dressy, but not take it over the top. I went with a blue monochrome outfit, and I loved the combination of textures!


I went with a floral print pair of jeggings that were super comfy! You can buy a pair for yourself here, or by using the link at the bottom this post. I really like the way the two shades of blue looked together.


This close-up of the top shows how soft and elegant it is. Isn't it gorgeous? I love blue for winter! You could also do this look for any other season using a different colored top. (Brights for spring/summer or deep colors of nature for fall.)


A pair of shiny black peep-toe heels added some sass to the ensemble. (As did my silly giggles.)


The top was stretchy, so I was able to create an off the shoulder look, which made me feel sexy. I love the different ways to wear this! You could also do off the shoulder with just one shoulder.

Fall Colored Casual Bohemian

As much as I enjoy dressing up, sometimes I really look forward to days when I can wear something comfy and casual. I used the cropped sweater in this outfit as the inspiration, and I was going for a casual Bohemian look.


I decided to stick to a fall color palette, which also happens to be perfect for my autumn coloring! I stuck to beige and gold tones, but added a punch of color with a rust orange maxi skirt.



I also wore a necklace that I made out of small wooden balls and metal pipes. I love how it coordinated with the outfit and gave a bit of texture to the look!



A pair of gold dangly earrings completed the look, and matched the necklace really well.
