People say that beauty is pain, but for me, comfort is key. This outfit looks super trendy and detailed, but when you really break it down, I am just wearing a sweatshirt and some house slippers. I love when you can take a simple idea like pajamas or loungewear and elevate it to something that is stylish and sophisticated.

I know what you’re thinking. “Who in her right mind wears velvet in the summer?”. Well, I am about to challenge you to do just that. I’m not encouraging you to step out in the sweltering heat in a head-to-toe velvet suit. I am, however, saying that a velvet accent here and there could be a nice refresher to your summer wardrobe. On top of that, I can almost guarantee you that no one else will be experimenting with this velvet trend just yet, so you will definitely be ahead of the pack. Here is a list of my favorite velvet pieces that you can purchase right now!
