Happy Friday!! I’m so happy the weekend is only a few hours away. I’m also very excited to share my first holiday look with you! It’s never too early to start thinking about what to wear for holiday parties and family get togethers. I used to always wait until the last minute to shop for holiday outfits and then I would get stressed out when I couldn’t find what I wanted. Well, lesson learned my friends, I will be shopping early for holiday looks from this point forward.
My first holiday look consists of the most amazing velvet blazer from Hand in Pocket Boutique. The color is UNREAL! I’m going to style it two ways in today’s post because I think it can be worn several times this season. Before you go any further, I want to share that you can get 20% off your purchase at Hand in Pocket with code loverlygrey20 at checkout! The discount brings this blazer down to $71! Trust me, It’s so worth it for this holiday season. This is sure to be an item that you will be thinking about later if you don’t purchase now!
First, I’m pairing the blazer with a white cami, black jeans and leopard print pumps! This is the perfect look for Thanksgiving dinner or a more casual holiday party. For this look, you can probably recreate it with items you already have in your closet once you add the velvet blazer. Just add black or dark denim, a white top of some kind and a pattern pump. Nude pumps would also be a good option if you aren’t interested in the pattern shoe.
As for sizing, this blazer runs true to size. I’m wearing a small and it’s got just enough room for a long sleeve blouse to go underneath. It’s available in small, medium and large.
Next, I’m dressing the blazer up a bit with a ruffle long sleeve blouse, also from Hand in Pocket, and faux leather skirt. I also have the leopard pumps paired with this option as well. They are quickly becoming an obsession for me. I’m wearing a size XS in the ruffle blouse. It’s a little sheer and you will notice on the Hand in Pocket website that the model is wearing a cami underneath it. In my photos, I only have on a nude bra and I thought it was fine, however adding a cami under it would be fine as well. I love the ruffle details on this blouse. I think wearing it alone is also great for the holidays! The price for this one is $66 + an additional 20% off with code loverlygrey20 at checkout.
If you are local to Atlanta, you should definitely check out Hand in Pocket’s store front in Vinings. They have a large selection of clothing and there is something for everyone at HIP. They also have some of the best jewelry if you are looking for unique statement pieces. It’s definitely a hidden gem that I wish I would have know about sooner.
Grab this blazer while you can!! I would love to know how you would style it. Comment below with your thoughts! Thank you Hand in Pocket for sponsoring today’s post. As always, all opinions are my own.
