Try Out The Trend With a Velvet Cami

Velvet is ALWAYS going to remind me of when I was itty bitty and in gymnastics. Leotard color & design was soo important and velvet was everywhere!!  Then we all grew up & moved on, and velvet went away. Except trends make comebacks, velvet is ‘in’, and I am here for it.

Figuring out how to wear it can be tricky. Is there such thing as too much?! I think not. But if you are a little apprehensive to try it out then a velvet cami is a perfect way to start!

I picked up this one at Old Navy for a great price(thanks Black Friday!) and even not on sale it’s under $25. The perfect price to try something new out! The great thing about a velvet cami is that it has the same cut & flow as satin so it hangs really cute and not tight or clingy. Plus the velvet traps heat so it’s a good Fall & Winter option for layering.

Black is always a classic choice but this velvet cami also comes in Gold, Navy, Pink, & Wine. Or to really combine trends there’s this option with a ruffle!

SHOP THIS LOOK:


I finally put a Christmas tree up yesterday! We actually went out and bought a new one because our previous fake tree was looking a little droopy & sad. The new one is a baby at only 5 feet but it’s portable and cheap and all that’s needed for this year!

I’m hoping that getting ornaments up & finishing decorating the rest of the house will get me into the holiday mood. The weather has been soo terrible here (which, it’s Seattle, I really should be used to it) but it’s making it so hard to get excited for anything!

What get’s you in the holiday spirit?! Is it the music, baking, decorations? Let me know in the comments!
