Chunky Knit + Velvety Cami

Forest Green. That was the color of my first ever velvet Christmas dress. When I was five years old. Not sure how long the velvet trend lasted back in those days… but now that it’s back, I’d like to give it a shot, without looking like my five year old self….

So, when I was in Free People the other day (don’t let the fact that I was at the mall give you any sense that this was a leisurely outing. Harper was screaming like a pterodactyl, now that she’s discovered she has lungs, and I was just trying to return a few items….) I grabbed this velvet-y cami on my way out (no time to try it on….). I was drawn to the feminine touch of lace with the softness of the velvet (I was rushing out… so it really grabbed my eye…). When I got home, and put Harper down for a nap, I decided to see how it fit. With my hair tossed up in a topknot, and no make-up on, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it… so I put it back in the bag and decided I’d give it another go at a later date. Fast forward to later in the week. I decided to give it one more try for a quick taco dinner. Loved it. There was a breeze outside so I grabbed this chunky cardigan to toss over it.

Looking to give velvet another go around? I think pairing a velvet cami or jacket with distressed denim is a great way to go (no surprise here). I think it provides the perfect juxtaposition between feminine and edgy. I also think this velvet jacket would be a great piece over a black slip dress or lace cami and jeans. I like this light pink cami, black lace cami, and this button up option. Not feeling up to that much velvet? Try a little pop with these amazing booties. Either way you choose, you’re sure to look great… trust me!
