I have been loving the velvet trend lately. I had seen this really pretty pink crushed velvet dress on a celebrity on Instagram, and fell in love with it then. I’ve slowly been seeing more and more velvet clothing pop up in stores & I could not be more excited about it. While out shopping in Lubbock the other day, I found this velvet beauty and had to bring it home with me. The color is one of my favorites, and it comes in black as well. Perfect piece to transition into fall! It’s a great statement piece, so you don’t have to put a lot of effort into the rest of the outfit. Pair it with a graphic tee or lace up top, and when it gets cooler – add a faux leather jacket! I had to have this graphic tee – 1. Because it was only $15 2. It’s a perfect top to wear with a bralette. 3. It said “Marfa, Texas” on it. Marfa is one of my favorite places to visit in Texas. It’s such a cute town with so much character and only a couple of hours away. I’ve been trying to plan a quick weekend getaway with Kalep to Marfa & Lajitas for a weekend soon, but all he has on his mind is deer season being only a couple of weeks away! Anyway, I’ve linked a few other favorite velvet items in the widget below. Tyce is giving me his sad puppy eyes because he wants to go play, so I better go!
Happy Hump Day!
