I’ve been wanting to photograph this look for a long time. It’s either been too cold or too warm when I’m shooting but this day the weather was perfect. I pretty much spent my weekend taking photos for my blog, so it was a pretty good weekend!
When I first picked up this velvet dress, I was unsure as how to style it but I absolutely love pairing it with long sleeve shirts. I paired it with a collared shirt last fall (here) and now I’m back with a new way to wear it – with a bow! This shirt is actually a medium so it’s a little baggy on me but I LOVE pairing it with dresses like this. I probably didn’t even need the tights for this look but I like how they look with velvet. I’ll probably be putting this dress away in a few weeks but we’ll see. Maybe I’ll figure out a way to wear velvet when it’s 110F outside (seems unlikely!).
Jacket: Old Navy (similar)
