I normally have a pretty simple and basic style. I rarely branch out or try anything trendy, but this season I couldn’t resist. I recently ordered a pair of velvet leggings and I am so happy I did. I was almost certain after I hit “place order” that I would most likely send them back but I ended up LOVING them.Velvet has been super popular this season so I thought they would be fun for the holidays. They are a perfect way to be festive and still comfortable. I think this first look would be perfect or a casual holiday breakfast or brunch. To be honest, this it probably what I will be wearing all Christmas Eve until we head to church that night.Sweater: Lands End (similar here) | Velvet Leggings: Spanx via Nordstrom (also available here) | Flats: Nine West, old (similar here)
While this is a great casual and comfortable outfit for the holiday weekend it can also easily be dressed up with a few simple changes. Throw on a blazer and a simple pair of heels or even black booties and you are ready for a dressier dinner/gathering!Versatile items like this make packing so easy! I love when I can go from comfy and cozy to dinner ready with just a few simple changes.Blazer: Target, old (similar here and here) Sweater: Lands End (similar here) | Velvet Leggings: Spanx via Nordstrom (also available here) | Heels: Sam Edelman via Nordstrom
Like I said, I will definitely be wearing these leggings over the holiday weekend! I will also be sharing another post this week with a few casual holiday outfit ideas so stay tuned!
