Leather & Velvet

BB Dakota Leather Lapel Blazer
Joe Fresh Velvet Skirt
BB Dakota Zane Blazer
Dress worn as top: Mink Pink, Blazer: BB Dakota, Skirt: Joe Fresh, Tights: H&M, Boots: c/o Vince Camuto, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Watch: Michael Kors


These photos were taken just over a week ago, but my oh my, what a difference a week makes! Now, we are buried in snow, but on this day, I was able to wear suede heeled booties without care or concern! (Which, by the way, are truly one of my favorites, and are now super on sale here!)

As ready as I am to bid farewell to winter, I am trying to tell myself to maximize wear out of items that can't carry into spring & summer very easily - like this velvet Joe Fresh mini! In trying to mix it up a little bit, I took a body con dress that I ordered from Lulu's back in the summer that never made it on the blog before! I'd much rather be wearing it with bare legs & black wedges for a hot summer night out, but this will have to do for now! ;) This ghostly skin of mine could also use some sun, speaking of summer - I seem to be almost disappearing in my photos lately.

  13. I am ready for Spring/Summer too kate. I look outside in my backyard and all I see is my patio set basically drowning in snow. I just want to wear sun dresses! LOL but with that said, I love your outfit. That shirt is so cute with the touch of baroque. You really know how to rock blazers and skirts..its very inspiring to me! Heres to wishing for an early spring! xo

  14. I love this combo Kate, especially the baroque print of the dress. I live in LA and I'm ready for Spring to arrive. I'm tired of the cold weather (yes, 60s are cold for me)! But I also understand wanting to wear winter-wear as much as possible before warmer weather.
