A velvet love story

Velvet has been around for a while and will not go anywhere next season. Even tough I love the fabric, it’s not always the easiest one to wear, I think.

For the moment, I have two velvet clothing pieces in my closet that I’m crazy about. (Also got a pair of cute shoes, but that’s not really the point here 😉).

The velvet kaftan dress

A kaftan dress was on my wishlist for a while. But as I was quite hesitant about the occasions to wear it ( except the beach), I never purchased one. A couple of weeks ago, I came across this velvet one at Zara. My heart skipped a beat! It’s so pretty! Because of the dark blue velvet, the dress is a lot more wearable on any occasion then a normal kaftan dress. And I truly adore the colorful embroidery.

To let the dress be the centerpiece of the outfit, I’m wearing it here with simple black strappy sandals and some minimalistic jewelry.

The black velvet bodysuit

This piece I bought recently at H&M. I love the shape of it but it’s not the most multifunctional piece (like often with bodysuits). For this outfit I went for a simple washed off jeans and some pink details to soften the outfit.

It’s also the first time I’m wearing my hair like this; parted in the middle and all the way back. I’m not sure yet what I think about it. I need to get used to it, I guess.
