So my obsession with velvet continues. I was sorting through my clothes on the weekend and realised I have acquired a large amount of velvet clothing in a short space of time. Do I regret it? Not at all. I think what I like most about the fabric is the colours it tends to come in. As you may have guessed I'm not a big colour person, however jewel toned colours are my favourite to wear. Luckily for me those colours and velvet go hand in hand.
This outfit is not a good example of a new colour-loving me. I was playing around with some pieces trying to come up with some nighttime outfits that won't leave me frozen this winter. Last year my solution was to throw my leather jacket over everything, however this left carrying round a jacket for most of the night.
Although the layers here a relatively thin, they also mean that I am fairly covered up. I shall give this outfit a test run sometime this week and let you know. If there's no response I'm probably frozen to the pavement and someone should come and bring me a cup of tea.
These shorts from UNIF are beautiful. The garters aren't functional but I love the hook-and-eye closure on the pants. They were a buy from NastyGal awhile back, but they are still on the site on mega-mega-clearance. I love a pair of short shorts and these manage to be short but not leave my bum hanging out. Win-win if you ask me.
My Back Offs have been featured on the blog before (link here). They remain one of my favourite Jeffreys and are probably one of the most comfortable as well. I go into much more detail in the review linked so if you fancy an in depth diatribe on these shoes then click away.
What's your favourite way to keep warm on a night out?
