Wine & Couture: Velvet Midi

Velvet Midi


When I saw this skirt I totally thought it was a satin material.  Of course if you read the description you will see it clearly says velvet.  Imagine my surprise when I opened it.  I was actually over the moon!  This skirt will be perfect this Fall and Winter.  Paired with ankle boots, or riding boots.  I decided to go a little hipster with my styling by adding this chunky cold shoulder sweater.  I did a front tuck so I wouldn't look frumpy.  I am totally in love with this look.  To be honest I forgot the black peep toe mules (here , here or here) I wanted to wear with this outfit.  As I mentioned in my last post I have so much going on that blogging is far from my mind.  My go to outfit is a soft tee, comfortable blue jeans (stretchy) and mules.  Working in a casual office I have cut way back on clothing purchases.  I am trying to have more of a staple closet with lasting pieces.  Not to mention I am saving a ton of money.  By shopping wisely, like the Nordstrom sale, and purchasing staple pieces my closet is smaller and higher quality.  You have to find what makes you happy and go with it.




Thank you for reading.  I hope I gave you at least 1 take away.

I would love to hear your thoughts.  Please leave a comment about anything that inspires you.

  5. I love that bag! I saw it in the Nordstrom sale but thought too long about it. When I went back, it was already gone.

  6. The skirt is beautiful! I think I would have loved it in whatever material it came in. I love how you paired it with the sweater and ankle boots - it's the perfect fall outfit combination. Now if only the weather would cool down a bit!

  10. That's velvet? Whoa, it looks so lightweight though, and I usually think of velvet as a heavier material. It looks great!
