Velvet for the Holidays + Link Up

November 15, 2017

I’m back today with another holiday party outfit idea. I’m a sucker for a good skirt and over the knee boot combo, so when I got this velvet top I knew it was meant to be. Velvet is so on trend right now, and I cannot get over how great this top is. It’s another one that apparently everyone else felt the same way because it’s practically sold out on Shopbop. It keeps coming in and out of stock in limited sizes, so check back. It is available through Belk hereThis skirt is currently 40% off making it just $36. It’s a really gorgeous jacquard material with the prettiest fall colors. I recommend snagging it!

Velvet for the Holidays

I love velvet for the holidays. It is such a luxe material that it naturally feels special and perfect for the season. While scouring the internet for pieces to fill my holiday shopping page for you all, I have come across so many great velvet pieces at really affordable price ranges. I am linking a bunch below from dresses, to tops, to pants, and blazers. So many fun ways to combine velvet with other textures this season. We have a party with some friends coming up in early December, and I think this look will be the perfect thing. Not too dressy (like a lace dress) or too casual.

Boot Giveaway

In case you missed it on Instagram, I have teamed up with Marc Fisher to give away a pair of boots just like the one I was wearing on Monday’s post. Head over to this photo to enter. It is super easy, and you don’t want to miss these boots!

    I think velvet is a really festive fabric, although there’s no way we could wear it with the heat here! Better for table decorations, haha!

    That’s such a pretty skirt though – that could be easily worn here! 🙂

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far 🙂

    There is something quite luxe about velvet this time of year!! I was also wondering about your GG bag – how much can you fit in there! I’m thinking of making a little holiday purchase for myself 🙂 xo, Biana-BlovedBoston

    I am loving everything velvet right now! Well, I take that back…I’m not so much into the velvet dresses that I see around or crushed velvet on anything other than a skirt, lol. It’s too much of a bad flashback to Junior High! But…I love the tops, blazers and pants! You’re right, it’s so luxe and perfect for the season!

    This is a gorgeous outfit idea for the holidays! I just love the rich color of your top and how it has a Victorian look. I don’t have any parties planned this year with baby girl on the way, but I would totally wear something like this!
