style: the velvet blazer look #1

Hello and Happy Wednesday to you! Today I have linked to The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.

For our first look of February’s Style Wheel Big Deal, I have created an easy work-look by pairing our velvet blazer with white jeans and an all-purpose black and white striped tee.DSF_5703DSF_5680DSF_5674 One of the best attributes of this specific blazer is the color. The jewel-tone is bright and happy and looks so sharp when paired with black and white. Don’t forget, last month’s lesson–it is okay to wear white in the winter these days. 😉 I imagine most of you have a black and white striped t-shirt. If not, or if yours is just about worn out, I found mine at Target. Click here to see what they have now.

Are these shoes not so fun? Okay, so yes the very first time I wore them I dropped a bit of pizza on the suede which of course left a little spot…but that is not deterring me from telling you how badly you need a pair. Stacked heel. Ankle strap. Fabulous color. All the requirements for a pair of shoes that will immediately bring some cheer to your year. Hurry! They are on sale!!

Enjoy the breath of fresh air a velvet blazer provides this month. You can’t help but smile at rich hues, and how fun to have velvet as part of our wardrobes once again.

-ciao for now-
