There’s nothing I love more than a good blazer, seriously if you check my closet I have a blazer addiction! For good reason though, they’re timeless and create endless looks, this velvet one in particular is a favorite. With lots of parties and holiday events this time of year I’m always looking for ways to dress up my jeans, and adding a velvet blazer is definitely one winning combination.
I’ve actually had this velvet blazer in my closet for years so this exact one is no longer available, but that just goes to show you what a classic wardrobe investment a velvet blazer can be. Velvet never goes out of style but it does certainly spike in popularity certain years, and from home decor to wardrobe this is definitely one of those years.
These leopard pumps have been a favorite for years as well, I wear them all the time on the blog. They’re so awesome and affordable that Macy’s continues to keep them in stock year after year, and they’re actually comfortable! I’m always down for a good statement necklace too, and this gorgeous one was love at first sight, and it’s under $30!
The clutch was a 40th birthday present, what can I say it was a rough transition and Brian kept showering me with gifts to get me through it. Did it help? Absolutely! I’m not even sure this particular clutch style is still sold, but this Michael Kors Clutch is absolutely stunning and the Tory Burch one would be an amazing classic too.
Although I do love trends, if you follow my outfits and style you know I love sticking to classics too. I think if you invest in a velvet blazer, whether black like mine of another color, you’ll be wearing it for years! Like I said mine is no longer available but I’ve linked some gorgeous other blazers below.
