Blue Velvet

During a few recent shopping trips online several velvety items have really caught my eye. Today, Ashley was wearing the cutest flouncy jacket made of a slate-blue velvet. She styled it perfectly with colorful accessories and playful heels.

This jacket is perfect for going out, but Ashley paired it with skinny jeans and a flowy blouse to make the look more casual and work appropriate. Her necklace adds a nice yellow and green splash to brighten up the outfit and a unique snake skin, petal-like patterned wedge gives her an edge.

I'm definitely a sucker for vintage jewelry and Ashley rocked her vintage thin gold Seiko watch with a 21st century bracelet by Melinda Maria. These classic pieces along with the bold statement necklace keep her looking chic and simple. Her ring is also vintage; an heirloom from her grandmother.

The blouse has beautiful detail but doesn't distract from her jacket and accessories.

Outfit head to toe: Earrings from a boutique in Atlanta, necklace from Anthropologie, blouse from LOFT, jacket by Hinge, vintage Seiko watch, bracelet by Melinda Maria, vintage ring, jeans by Paige, and shoes by All Black.
