My Holiday Style Must-Have: Luxe Velvet

luxe velvet

Hello from Germany!

Yes, despite all the stress and anxiety I had leading up to our trip – we made it in one piece.

And it went a lot smoother than I anticipated – I didn’t get angry or freak out on anyone, and there was only a small amount of tears (β„… Mason)πŸ˜….

All in all a good test run in traveling with a little one {though I was told by a fellow mum on our flight that this stage is the easiest to travel with a little one, once they start moving on their own it’s a whole new ball game 😬}.

But enough about babies, let’s talk about the reason for this trip – the holidays!

Can you believe Christmas is this weekend?

I say this every year, but it’s amazing how quickly the holidays sneak up on me.

I feel like Thanksgiving hits and everything else just snowballs afterwards.

This year our holiday season is a bit more lowkey, which I’m totally happy with but that doesn’t mean I can’t get a little fancy πŸ˜‰πŸ’πŸΎ

Last year I mentioned how velvet and I were having a moment. And it still rings true this year.

Something about the texture of velvet just screams luxe holiday to me.

And the rich golden hue of this New Look dress just adds to the luxuriousness.

I already rocked this look to a winter wedding – topped with my red coat πŸ˜‰, but I think it’d be just as great for a Christmas party or ringing in the New Year πŸŽ‰

Who knows, you may see it pop up on Instagram again.
