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!

    That top is amazing and perfect for the holidays!

    I know you were interested in my post on how my blog went viral after 6 months, but honestly despite having traffic I have no clue how to find collaborations. How have you found all the collaborations you do for your giveaways and clothes?
