Are you ready for the weekend?! I know I am and I don’t even have to travel to an 8-5 job anymore!! There is just something about the two days at the end–or beginning–of the week that have a little more relaxed feel. And speaking of relaxed, what could be more relaxing than a pair of track pants, especially these velvet ones!
Yes, I am totally into the velvet trend this fall. As you can see from earlier posts, like this one–going soft for the holidays with velvet–or this one–ready to party in spruce and mauve. I really like the velvet looks this season!
So when I found these fun track pants made with velvet in this fun balsam green color, I was in! They are from JC Penney, which just goes to show you that fashionable items can be found anywhere at all price points! A fellow blogger had a really cute velvet top from them so I took a look and got a few things at 40% off!
A basic black tee and my off-white jean jacket were a perfect addition to this casual look.
And the best news is that I am wearing REAL shoes!! Woo-hoo! Not that I can walk very far or very fast as I have to re-teach my foot how to walk, but it’s a start! These Kork-Ease slip-ons are the only shoes I can actually get my foot into– not to mention shoes that don’t hurt. (While they are pricey, they are super comfortable.) And the white stuff on my foot is K-tape, designed by my physical therapist to help with swelling–not pretty, but it does help. I am seeing progress but cute shoes may be down the road a bit…
Using crutches has required me to have my hands free so a backpack purse has been the perfect bag. My husband bought me this one years ago, which proves that quality leather bags never go out of style. Here is a nice quality bag that is similar.
Try some velvet in a different piece, like these track pants, just for fun!
Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to check back in on Monday. Thanks for stopping by today!
