This is the first true Fall outfit I've posted. I'm totally not done with the summer clothes but I got this gorgeous velvet blazer and I was really anxious to try it out! Velvet is a big trend for Fall 2012 and I am so excited because I love velvet! I think the biggest tip I can give you for wearing velvet and not looking totally 80's is DO NOT wear a white button up blouse with your velvet! Also, stick to one piece per outfit. Although runways showed full velvet suits that is a hard look for regular people to pull off.

Do you plan on rocking velvet this Fall/Winter?

  1. I absolutely LOVE this blazer! The color with your hair is gorgeous, and the texture is fabulous! :)

  2. I'd LOVE to wear velvet this summer and have been looking for a velvet blazer for the past few months. No luck so far, but I did find a velvet skirt I'd like to try. Hopefully it'll work for me.

    Your blazer is so great; great texture and the color is just gorgeous on you.

  3. I love the jacket with your hair and I love how you have the green necklace. It just stands out so well!

  4. Also, avoid wearing a turtleneck with your velvet blazer. -Weird pet peeve and, surprisingly, I know a lot of offenders in my circle.-

    I agree with Dossome that this look is absolutely fantastic on you. You are workin' that color and the cargoes are a perfect pairing.

  5. Wow, totally love this! The colors are perfect for fall and love that you outfitted this in a way that's easy for anyone to pull off. So pretty!


  6. Thank you so much for those thrifting tips. I would love to be more of a thrifter but Im just not one of those people that ever has any luck. Hopefully with your tips, Ill get better. So glad I was able to link up with you!


  7. You look great! Great way to spend $35.

  8. Love the contrast of the posh velvet, sparkly jewels, and shimmering top. This look is just plain WELL-STYLED! And that clutch? OhmystarsIloveit!!! ;)
    PS Been loving/repinning a ton of your pins on Pinterest, Lindsey!

  9. I love that velvet jacket especially with the texture, great fall find. The necklace is so pretty, I never find good jewelry at the thrifts, always kind of expensive where I live, 6-10 dollars usually. Great deals!

  10. This outfit is fall perfection! I haven't tried velvet yet, but you have inspired me. Love the blazer with the cargo pants too...such a great look


  11. That necklace was from Goodwill? I die. Fun outfit!

  12. How funny i've ran into a blazer just like that at a couple of my Goodwills (originally from Ann Taylor Loft) but there's always been something wrong with it that didn't make it work (wrong size, stained). So i'm very jealous! This color looks beautiful with your hair!


  13. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. You are so gorgeous. You're hair color is to die for. Seriously! I love the top, necklace, and blazer. They work so well together!

  16. Oooo...I'm really excited about velvet! It's just feels so nice! haha... I'm definitely looking forward to wearing a lot of different textures this fall. Love the necklace too!

  17. I had no idea velvet is making a comeback. Glad to know. Your jacket looks splendid on you.
