    Restyled: Blue Velvet Pleated Skirt

    When I had my photoshoot with Lauren at the beginning of the month this outfit was not one of the original outfits I picked out. Just days before the photoshoot I switched out my more vibrant, hot weather outfit, for this white sleeveless top and blue velvet pleated skirt because the weather was supposed to be cool and cloudy that day. As with all my shoots with Lauren, the weather ended up being hotter and sunnier than forecasted (not complaining!). Anyway, I’ve worn this blue velvet pleated skirt on here before but that was with a long sleeve white tee so definitely more of a cool weather look. This time I styled…

    Velvet Polka Dot Pants

    Dress pants can get boring to wear to work. I mean, how many different variations can you wear? Plus, unless you work somewhere that allows you to dress casually or more freely, then you keep your pants pretty basic – not even straying too far in terms of color. So when you find pants that put a small twist on a classic, it’s a welcome change. These navy blue pants have an all-over black polka dot detail, which is cute in itself, but the polka dots are actually velvet! It’s such a good idea and a great way to update a classic look. Both the sweater and pants are from…

    Restyled: Green Velvet

    I had originally planned to wear this green velvet dress to work yesterday, but I changed my mind and wore a different velvet dress instead. I may wear this later in the week, but in any case I had taken these photos over the weekend thinking I would be wearing it to work. I first styled this dress on here two Christmases ago I believe. It is the prettiest green velvet. The dress is meant to be off the shoulder and has drapey short sleeves that bell out. I wore it last time on here with a open-knit cardigan that has gold thread running through the cream fabric. This time…

    Embellished Necklace + Velvet

    For a second last night I thought it was Wednesday and then I realized it was only Tuesday. I hate when that happens!  But today is Wednesday and I’m hoping it doesn’t drag. Today I’m sharing a necklace I wore to work last week with a blue velvet top. This blue velvet top has been on the blog before. I love the rich sapphire blue color and the ruffled sleeves. Velvet is such a sumptuous, beautiful fabric for fall and winter and blue velvet is probably my favorite. I wore it to work last week with this beautiful embellished necklace. It features rosey hued pearls and crystallized links. I’m not sure…

    Floral Velvet Tee

    Today’s my last day of work for the school year! Hopefully the day isn’t too crazy. So for today’s blog post I’m sharing a short sleeve tee that features two things I absolutely love – florals and velvet. The colors in the florals are so so pretty. I love the color combo and on the velvet it just looks so luxe and beautiful. I wore the tee with mauve-y pink pants and block heel slides.

    Blue Velvet Plaid

    I think plaid can be worn all year long, personally, but one way to make it work for sure in spring is to wear it in a sheer blouse. The plaid in this sheer bell sleeve blouse has an open back and velvet plaid stripes. It’s so simple, yet so pretty. Top: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s | Pants: Gap | Shoes: Target | Watch: Anne Klein | Ring: Stella & Dot I wore a navy blue tank top underneath this blouse to keep with the blue theme. The back is open and connects at two points for a flowy look. I paired the blouse with black pants and my…

    Blue Velvet Midi Skirt

    This light blue velvet pleated midi skirt is so dreamy. It makes me think of Cinderella actually. I’ve been waiting for so long to wear this skirt, because I wanted it to be warm enough to wear without tights – I don’t think it’d look good with tights – and before it got too warm to wear it. The ruffled or paper bag waist and blue ribbon are the cutest details. I paired the skirt with a plain white long sleeve tee which allowed the skirt to be the star of the outfit. I also like the mix of casual and dressy. I wore light grey open-toed sandals to finish…

    Lemon Print Sweater

    You may have seen the poll I had on my Instagram stories last week about this top. When I bought this sweater, I thought it was such a cute lemon print sweater. Then, I wore it one day and at first glance my mom thought they were pineapples. I thought it was just a random mistake, but then I wore it to work one day and a few of my students said they liked the pineapples! It made me seriously question myself, but I was reaffirmed in my belief that they are lemons by multiple students and by the poll results. 80% agreed that they are lemons! Anyway, I wore…

    Green Velvet Embroidered Dress

    Today I’m sharing one last look I shot with Lauren Ashley Photography last month. It’s the last look I’m sharing from that day, but was actually the first outfit I wore that day. This green velvet, embroidered dress has such beautiful details. I knew I wanted to get this dress professionally photographed to capture the rich colors and details. It was a pretty chilly day when we shot these photos in March, so I decided to wear taupe over-the-knee boots with the dress. It helps to make the dress cold weather and day time friendly.

    Velvet Moto Jacket

    I have an exciting post to share with you all today. Last month I met up with Lauren from Lauren Ashley Photography for a photoshoot. Lauren first reached out to me through Instagram and after exchanging a few messages we set up a shoot and I couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out, especially since the spring has been colder than usual. Oh the powers of Instagram! We shot 3 different looks – that seems to be my magic number of outfits I can fit in to 1 hour as seen with my photoshoots with Jaye Kogut Photography too. The first look I’m sharing with you today is a…
