Large bell sleeves and a velvet maxi? I couldn’t dream of a better combo even if I tried. I grabbed this velvet maxi years ago and has been a go-to EVERY holiday season. Over the years I have paired it with anything from a short-sleeved sequined top, white wrap around collared shirt, graphic tees and statement accessories.
Out with the Old and in with the New
When I got this top I struggled with what to pair it with! I know, it’s not always smart to buy something you really have nothing that goes with it. It hung in my closet for almost a month and while moving all my holiday pieces to the front of my closet, it dawned on me this velvet skirt would be fantastic with this top.
I have been cleaning out my closet for what seems like a YEAR. There are statement pieces that I might only wear once every two years! But when my mood or the right occasion comes, those pieces can make my #ootd.
The new year is right around the corner, so out with the old and in with the new… or not? When you start purging for the new year keep the things that are of value to YOU. Your husband, friends or mom may think those pieces are just collecting dust. Brush them off, and continue to love what YOU love.
But, if they are falling apart … it’s time to invest in a new pair (you know those boots that you won’t let go of.. it’s time girl).
Always stay true to yourself and what you love. Growth is a beautiful thing, but confidence in yourself and who you are TODAY brings more fruit than you could imagine.
Out with the old and in with the new, NAH, I think I will keep some of the old 🙂
