{outfit} Double Velvet

It is getting so cold out there! I was getting tired of just wearing jeans and sweaters so I decided to switch things up a bit and wear a skirt and blazer.  The skirt and blazer are both velvet, but the blazer is a dark olive green and the skirt is a muted purple. I often forget to wear my blazers because they are in a closet that's not in my room...the perils of having a teeny tiny room!

  1. The double velvet looks great on you! :)

    It is funny how much what we see in our wardrobes influences what we wear! After I downsized my wardrobe I was finding clothes I'd completely forgotten about as they'd been pushed away out of sight! I'm trying to reduce what I own so that it's easier to organise and see everything. It's a work in progress though! :)

  2. Unfortunately we all fall victim to 'out of sight, out of mind' but at least the winter is young? You will have plenty of time to wear them all! You are off the a good start, I am loving the double velvet.

  3. I forget I own certain times all the time....I'm glad to know I'm not the only one! And this outfit makes me really want to add some more velvet to my closet....
