Summer Velvet

     As trendy as velvet has become over the past couple of years, I’ve heard more than once that it’s meant to be worn exclusively in winter and fall.  While I agree that velvet is perfect for holiday parties, I don’t think its wear should be so limited!  Today I’m sharing a summery styling of my favorite crushed velvet skirt.  This look is completely appropriate for a summer night or even a fun day out on the town!  Enjoy!

     I adore the versatility that comes with the blue velvet skirt’s dark hue, but to balance out the dark color for a brighter look I opted for a fun pink tee with ruffled sleeves.  This pink happens to match one of my favorite pairs of tassel earrings almost perfectly, so I thought they’d be a fun addition to the look!  Because the tassels are pretty loud on their own, I kept the rest of my jewelry pretty understated with my white pearl Kendra Scott Elisa pendant necklace, a few everyday bracelets, and my gold Kate Spade watch.  I decided to coordinate my shoes to my gold jewelry and reached for my gold Jack Rogers sandals.  I love this look’s contrast in colors and textures, how fun for a summer day!
