Velvet Dress

Dress Theyskens’ Theory/ Trench Awear/ Purse Tory Burch/ Belt UO/ Tights Target/ Sunglasses c/o Tory Burch/ Boots Michael Kors/ Ring Samantha Wills

I’ll be the first one to admit that I thought my velvet days were long gone (um, second grade?) but I proved myself wrong when I spotted this dress. The little cap sleeves are actually mesh and the fabric stretches just enough to fit perfectly without being too tight. Since I wear dresses more often than I wear anything else, my boots and tights have been my go-to with this chilly weather. You can find me in a similar combo probably 5 out of 7 days of the week!

One of my favorite things to do is to stop by one of our local flower shops and pick up a few bundles of fresh flowers (weekly, if I can). There is something about fresh flowers that instantly brightens up my day. The more colorful, the better. I love not only how they look, but how they somehow bring happiness along with them. Do you know what I mean? I can’t help but smile when I look at them :)

Downtown

Dress Suno/ Jacket Queen’s Wardrobe/ Tights Target/ Boots Michael Kors/ Purse Stella McCartney/ Necklace Forever 21/ On Nails Butter “HRH”

Thomas and I headed downtown to explore some sales and search a little more for apartment stuff. Our place is slowly but surely coming together, but we still have so much we need to get. I’m excited to start sharing bits and pieces with you guys once everything gets in place. We’ve already returned a few things that didn’t turn out quite like I had envisioned in my mind ;)
