For some, velvet is a blast from the past, reminding us of the “better days” during the 1990’s. Recently, however, velvet has made a comeback. I’ve seen soooo many sightings since the beginning of fall season!

Velvet is a tufted fabric, which is distinctively soft to the touch. In the right lighting, velvet gives the appearance of dimension and movement. It’s also perfect to wear during the holiday season.

If you’re like myself, you like to be comfortable during Thanksgiving, especially after a large, hearty feast. That’s why these velvet jeans are perfect for upcoming Thanksgiving festivities.

These jeans are both comfortable and causal, yet add a bit of sophistication to an outfit. They act as a statement piece to any holiday ensemble.

Luckily, I stumbled across these velvet jeans from Old Navy. They can easily be purchased in store, just in time for the upcoming holiday festivities.

They are available in 4 colors and are linked above. Personally, I think the garnet color is PERFECT for a causal Christmas gathering.

I paired these velvet jeans with a simple cream sweater tank I purchased from T J Maxx last year. Fortunately, I found a very similar sweater, and have linked it above as well.

Because these velvet jeans are the centerpiece of an outfit, a simple, solid colored sweater would couple perfectly.

Lastly, I tied this Thanksgiving outfit together with a statement earring from Steel Mill, a local boutique. If you are near the Bowling Green area, be sure to check out their store or follow them on Instragram at @steelmillbg

Hey y’all and happy Monday! Sorry I have been missing in action over the past week. I traveled to St. Louis for a meeting and pulled a couple of overtime shifts at work.

With the holiday season literally around the corner, I’ll be definitely be needing any extra cash for presents and the foreseen Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.

Today, I’m going to keep this post short and sweet. Vests are one of my favorite cold weather accessory. I found this fuzzy sherpa vest at Target.

Styling & Detail

It is available in cream and black. This vest is warm and versatile. I promise you, it will quickly become a staple in your wardrobe. This vest has a gold zipper in the front that adds a touch of shine and elegance.

Under this vest, I wore a basic white fitted long sleeve crew neck shirt, also from Target. Target is the best place to get affordable fitted shirts. These shirts come in a variety of colors and are the epitome of comfort.

They are ideal to wear under vests and cardigans. Plus, they are priced at only $10! I swear, I have one in almost every color.

Accessories

For jewelry, I kept it simple and styled this vest with a long strand necklace that has a cream bead and gold tassel detail.

This necklace is from Nest Uncommon Goods, a local boutique in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Gold accessories are great to wear with this vest because they coordinate perfectly with the gold zipper detail.

Pairings

Lastly, I tied this outfit together with a pair of camo patterned jeans. Camo is a trending pattern right now and can be styled with a multitude of colors.

Because camo is such a loud and bold pattern, I like to style it with plain solid color tops, typically in the neutral colored family.

These camo jeans are from Old Navy. I know I have discussed Old Navy jeans in the past but I seriously cannot express how amazing they are!

These particular jeans are a mid-rise style that sit below the waist and are fitted through the hip and thigh. The raw edged fabric around the ankle adds an edgy and industrial feel.

Thanks for stopping by this Monday edition of Flights and Fashion. Stay tuned later this week for some Thanksgiving outfit ideas!
