Green Velvet

1.11.2012 outfit 1   1.11.2012 outfit 2

Blazer/Shell: J Crew
Pants/Belt: Banana Republic
Shoes: Me Too via DSW 
Earrings: Andrea Montgomery Designs

I love green- it’s definitely my favorite color, but I own surprisingly little of it in my wardrobe.  This blazer, however, is a staple for me in the winter months.  I love a good velvet blazer for its versatility.  You can dress it up over a cocktail dress, make it office appropriate with pants, and take it casual with a pair of jeans.  To me, the only downside of this blazer is how few months of the year I can actually wear it.  Sigh…

What’s your favorite flexible wardrobe staple?

    Can you come overhaul my closet and tell me what to wear 🙂 ? So cute!

    • I’d be glad to- it’s often fun to let someone else come see what’s in your closet and what outfits they would make. It’s like getting a new wardrobe without spending money. Win-win! 🙂

    That’s a good shade of green. i love green – esp the darker shades. and i love velvet – it definitely dresses things up. Kinda hard to wear velvet in Boulder tho where one rarely dresses up.
