Bow Back

by Jessica Sturdy on January 9, 2014

After finally tracking down this skirt, playing in the snow in a super casual outfit just wasn’t enough before it got retired for the season. Prior to heading home for the holidays, I opted to dress it up for work with a velvet blazer, navy tights, and a pair of glittery pumps.

Very pretty outfit Jessica. I love the bow detail on the back of the blazer. I bought a fabulous velvet blazer from Banana Republic, that I just can’t get enough of.

I love everything about this outfit! It’s too perfect! I’ve seen velvet blazers online this season and always thought they’d look gaudy, but this looks so classy and elegant…I think you’ve changed my mind :)
