Velvet Cardigan + Clear Heels

Today I’m having a girl’s day with my mom and Ava! I’m making my mom go to the mall with me because it’s the last opportunity of 2019 to go shopping with Christmas music playing in the background and I live for it! We’ll go browse the beauty counter at Nordstrom and grab some beauty sets for last-minute gifts. (Nordstrom has the best beauty gift sets if you’re still looking!)

But with the gift guides behind us and NYE right around the corner, I think it’s time to talk about an outfit that you will wear on repeat this winter.

A cardigan is the classic go-to piece that we all have and love. It’s the easy piece that you can throw on over any outfit so we keep one in our car at all times and have 25 in our closet. But if you’re ready for an update, a velvet cardigan is your answer!

The velvet trend going strong, you guys! It’s a fabric that instantly gives off an air of chic and can dress up even the simplest winter look. Trust me, your favorite cardigan will feel even better when made out of velvet!

While this would make a great NYE look, this soft and shiny fabric can live far beyond the holidays so think beyond formal wear. You can add velvet to an everyday look for a touch of glam and everyone will want to know where you got your outfit. If you’re still hesitant, the best way to wear with a piece like this is the best way to wear something new is to pair it with classic pieces like denim and neutral tank or bodysuit!

I love this velvet cardigan because it has a draped look to it, which gives this usual heavy fabric the most delicate feel. The material is soft and shimmery with added side pockets. You can only get it from Amaryllis Apparel because all of their pieces are custom and unique to their brand! I’m in the color ‘copper’ and a size small. It’s available in NINE colors:

Next, add a pop of height with this a clear heel. If you don’t have clear heels, keep them on your radar because clear is the new nude 😉

This see-through design will make your legs so long and give you all the Cinderella vibes! I’m wearing these heels in the photos and they are a currently 40% off! Here are a few other clear heels to browse:

Andrew and I are going on a little Christmas date tonight to kick off the holiday week and now I think I will wear this! 🙂 I hope you have the most Merry Christmas, enjoy every single moment!

All my love,
