Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it’s been over 4 months since I posted a proper outfit post! I started this incarnation of my blog in January 2017 and it feels like a nice kind of symmetry to begin 2018 with a similar style of post. I’ve been having a big think about my blog recently, and some changes I’m going to make for this year, but that’s for another post. For now, let’s talk about velvet and layering, two of my favourite things.
I’m wearing two new(ish) items here that I’ve not yet featured on the blog. This velvet cami and sparkly green loafers were both purchases from my big post-Christmas sale shopping adventure. I’ve worn the top once before but didn’t get a chance to photograph it. I love the feel of the velvet and the deep forest green colour. The sheer fabric at the neckline mixes up the textures and adds a unique touch. The velvet fabric of this top seems to be cut ever so slightly on the diagonal, which means it really wants to twist when you wear it. Whilst that’s not the end of the world, it is slightly annoying and requires fairly constant adjustment.
