Jewel Toned Velvet Blazer

In my previous post this week, I wrote about how much I love wearing plaid for the holiday season. Today's post is devoted to another fabric I adore this time of year: velvet! There's just something so luxurious about velvet, especially when it's in a jewel tone color like this one from Zara. My husband and I debated the exact color of this blazer. I think it's more of a purple color while he sees it as more of a burgundy wine color. Regardless of what color it is, we both think it's gorgeous! Below, you will find some other gorgeous velvet blazers for this holiday season!

As you can see, I found a way to sneak in some plaid into this outfit because it is now December and during this time of year, one can never have too much plaid! In addition to my plaid shoes, I also accessorized my outfit with my one of a kind Loren Hope butterfly brooch! A few times each year, Loren Hope, a jewelry designer from Rhode Island, creates a series of one of a kind butterfly brooches that sell out in a flash! I was lucky to snag this one a couple years ago. I think she's coming out with a new series of butterflies this December, so I'm hoping that if I am good, maybe Santa will bring me one for Christmas!

  1. That's a stunning rich color, and I love how you styled it with the check shoes and pretty pin! Thanks for linking

  2. Wow, that jacket is something I would wear in a heartbeat! Love the color with the brooch and those plaid shoes are perfect. Great look with the jeans- I call it casual amplified! :-)
