Trends To Try

Trends to Try: Vibrant In Velvet

Velvet is one of those fabrics that instantly makes you feel all grown up and elegant the moment you wear it. I distinctly remember my first velvet dress; a rich, emerald green, velvet bodice with a big tulle skirt, satin sash and itty bitty flowers on the neckline. Yes, I was 6 and I felt instantly grown up and pretty, that is until my 4-year-old sister walked in, with a big toothy smile right next to me, TWINNING.  Needless to say, my grownup parade was rained on. Today, that grown up, elegant feeling still rings true.

These days, I’m leaning more towards pairing gorgeous, velvet tops and jackets with denim for more of a polished, casual look. I will say, as we went on our #VibrantInVelvet hunting spree this week for @IAdoreWhatIWore, I started eyeing up a few dresses and skirts that have me very excited for upcoming, holiday festivities!

Take a peek at some of our favorites below.

Morning Insta. How are we all? It’s Friday – woo hoo. The tween and I are off out with my sister and her children on a Halloween hunt.
