Feelin’ Velvet


I’ve never tried the boyfriend trend (boyfriend jeans, boyfriend blazer or button up) …until this jacket. There isn’t a particular reason why but I’ve seen some bloggers pull it off quite well. I’d like to think of boyfriend clothes as something I cuddle up and sleep in. Though this jacket changed that. This piece is perfect for office wear, a great twist on the traditional blazer. I purchased it from Express, in which I rarely shopped until a few months ago because of the Petite Sizes addition.


I would definitely wear it for holiday parties. Here, I paired it with this dotted blouse from Banana republic. Both have subtle character but work really well together.


And of course orange is a must for Fall. Every time I pair orange and black, I can’t help but think it’s Halloween all over again.


I know I’m late to the game with this boyfriend trend but I love it with this velvet jacket. I plan to try boyfriend jeans next. I’m very much into tailored pieces for the sake of my small frame, so something that’s supposed to be worn over sized is a challenge. But stay tuned and you may just see something new fall into my wardrobe.
