Hello and Happy Wednesday to you! Today I am linked with The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday, and I am bringing you the second look of our Style Wheel Big Deal, the velvet blazer.
Today I’ve paired our beloved velvet with a chambray shirt and plaid pants. I love that this look is preppy, but not in an obvious way. The faded chambray combined with the leopard print scarf and shoe detail tends bring the preppy-vibe down a notch by suggesting casual; by suggesting edgy.
Brian bought these plaid jeans for me ages ago when we were in Las Vegas. They are a bit faded now after so many washes, but every winter I pull them out again and wonder what fun new ways I can bring them back to life. Personally, I think adding the velvet blazer is my favorite after all these years.
Some gorgeous accessories from Stella & Dot’s newest line are just the ticket to finish the look. The beautiful Iris Tassel Earrings are perfectly chic and make such the playful statement. (Not pictured here, but pairing them with the Marine Collar Necklace is truly all you need for spring!!!) Oh!! And don’t forget the Beaded Abacus Cuff to show off when you roll your sleeves up a bit on warmer days.
The Fillmore Tote has been my go-to bag all fall and winter. It is large, but not too large, en-trend without being kitschy and especially adorable with a leopard scarf loosely knotted through the handle.
Continue loving your velvet blazer this month, friends! And send me a pic when you do. 🙂
