Welcome, December! Bring on the snow, cold nights I’ll wish I bought furry blankets and North Pole coffee’s at Milady (currently having one as I write this).
Changing up my work wardrobe for this month has been tricky. Last year, I wrote a post about when to wear tights. I’m being hypocritical because according to myself, I should be wearing tights right now. However, according to the weather here, I should have bare legs and go for runs outside still! Mother nature has enjoyed confusing us.
Last month (lol), I bought this pink velvet skirt at Target and I’ve been wearing it on repeat! It’s a great transition piece to go from fall to winter and feel like tights aren’t necessary.
I’m only 5’3″, and this $22.99 skirt is a good length to be work-appropriate OR office Christmas party fashionable. It would also be flattering for taller gals and hit right below the knee (as it’s probably supposed to 😉 ).
Styling velvet is a lot harder than you’d assume, but I couldn’t go wrong with this leather jacket. I snagged mine on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in 2016, but it’s still available because of the popularity! I’m wearing my traditional work heels (you see them in almost every-other post because I own two pairs of the black and one pair of tan); they’re on sale for $32.50 here.
Tonight I did my first outing of Christmas shopping at Village Pointe, and I’m already failing. I bought myself four shirts. 3/4 are velvet. The trend is here to stay and pairing it with solid materials (like leather) creates balance in your look.
Shop everything I’m wearing here:
Looking for the perfect velvet piece to add to your wardrobe? Here are my picks. The tanks from Loft I snagged tonight and had to share on here!
Have a great end to your week!
