Velvet & Balloons

Thursday, December 7, 2017 3:30 AM

Happy Thursday Lovelies! 

Two trends I have loved this year have been velvet and fun sleeves. Velvet has been having it's moment for a few seasons, but this year it is front and center.  We have also seen the evolution of the pleated skirt, last year it was all about the pleated leather and metallics, and this year velvet has taken it's place. 

This skirt speaks to me, 

 1. it's blush 

2. velvet 


3. so feminine!


 I love the juxtaposition of  dainty and slightly rugged, so obviously I wanted to pair this uber girly skirt with an over sized cozy sweater. Enter balloon sleeves.  Sweaters this season have really upped their game. They are over sized, off the shoulder, embellished, bell sleeve, ruffle sleeve or in this case balloon sleeve.  I am totally in love with this sweater.

The best part about these two pieces is their versatility. I am already styling them a million different ways.

What are your favorite trends this season?

xx, Elise

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend and your Christmas preparation is going well. After a crazy week I managed to wrap some presents which is good, although (as always!) I've run out of tape!
