For today’s post, I am styling a royal blue velvet top from Soft Surroundings. I have been receiving catalogs from them for some time and finally took the plunge and ordered a few items. They have some really nice things, and their catalog is beautiful.
As you can see from the picture, this top is that color of blue that is almost purple. It’s a little tricky to pair with other pieces. For the post, I wore it with my dark indigo Democracy jeggings, but I really think the top would be better set off with white jeans. What would you style this top with?
My necklace is from Chico’s. I wore it in an earlier post in a choker style–it’s a great piece in that you can wear it either way.
I wanted to style this piece to show that color doesn’t just mean bright or light. This is a deep rich blue that shouts color out to me. In the color trends being shown for 2017, you will see a lot of deep, rich colors in many hues. I love it!
Another advantage to this top is the ruching all over. It comes in many colors and I think the style is pretty flattering on most of us.
I am wearing my gray and silver kitten heels to complement the necklace. You can see it’s windy cause I sure look like I’m having a bad hair day! Haha!
Next week will be “pink week” and I will include some posts showing pieces in shades of pink. Pink shades are BIG this spring.
Have a wonderful weekend. I bet some of you will be celebrating Valentine’s Day this weekend, since it falls on a Tuesday next week. Not as much fun to go out on a work night, I know!
