Dress Well: Velvet and Stripes, and Everything Nice

J. Crew coat, J. Crew blouse (love this version), Current/Elliot velvet jeans, Sam Edelman booties, J. Crew necklace (similar), TEXI leather bag, Coach sunglasses (old)

You know those outfits that just make you feel awesome? That's this outfit for me. I mean, what's not to love? As I've told you guys many times, this is my all-time favorite shirt. Add it to velvet jeans (yes you read that right - velvet) and you have an outfit made in heaven. These pants are one of the best purchases I have ever made - I got them 60% off in Nordstrom's after Christmas sale and have treasured them dearly ever since. Maybe it's dumb to be that attached to pants, but come on...they're velvet!

Dress Well: My Velvet-Print Pants

Club Monaco blouse, Current/Elliot jeans, J. Crew bracelet, Rag & Bone booties, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Tory Burch sunglasses (similar)

I generally would not consider myself to be a person who is drawn to velvet-print jeans. However, when I saw these babies over on Pink Peonies a few weeks ago, I was intrigued. When I subsequently found them on 60% off sale at Nordstrom (no longer the case, unfortunately), I was sold. And you know what? Best purchase in recent memory. Not only are they insanely comfortable, but I love how they add printed detail to my otherwise solid-color, slightly boring outfits. And who doesn't enjoy wearing velvet?

I hope all of you had a great President's Day weekend. Mine included making fried chicken sandwiches with friends (yum!), going to yoga, going on lots of long walks, starting the first season of Breaking Bad with my husband, and babysitting the world's cutest baby. I'm sad it's over!

Have a great Tuesday.
