I was super excited to share this new blue velvet wrap blazer with you guys today. So after the tedious process of going through the gazillion outfit pics that my trusty photog took (aka my husband) and filtering out the only three that I found to be acceptable (seriously, this gig takes a thick skin bc dissecting this many pics of yourself will bring out allllll your insecurities), edited those three measly photos in 6 different editing programs (bc of course there isn’t just one program that does everything you need); yada yada yada…like an hour plus of editing later I visited the retailer’s website to get the link to my super cute blazer to share in this post, only to see that it’s already OUT OF STOCK. Ahhhh. I hate it when that happens, but unfortunately it happens a lot and it always puts a damper on my day.
The good news is I’ve found several other velvet wrap blazers (even beautiful blue ones) that are all around the same price point as the one I’m wearing in these pics (see alternative options in the clickable photo widget right below my pics). I’ve linked the one I’m wearing as well bc they often re-stock their popular items. Fingers crossed this happens!
In my search I also came across some other amazing velvet pieces that I’m majorly crushing on, which I’ll share below. Some of these jumpsuits and rompers I found are great options for your Valentine’s Day plans, whether you’re going out for a date night with your special someone, or having an epic girls’ night out….definitely some cute stuff for either scenario. And if your bank account is still recovering from holiday shopping, you can always just ‘winterize’ some of your summertime rompers by adding tights, boots, and a cute leather jacket or blazer.;)
I love my husband, but frankly I really miss those fabulous Galentine’s nights out with my ride or die crew. Valentine’s Day was actually more fun when I was single haha, but I digress.;)

I’ve also included the green blazer I posted on instagram a few days ago in today’s velvet crush round up. Thankfully that one is still in stock for the time being;)
So what does everyone have planned for this weekend? As many of you may have seen on my instagram posts, Charleston had it’s first major snowfall since 1989 earlier this week, so now we’re on day 3 of the whole city and surrounding areas basically being shut down. We don’t have snow plows or salt trucks to tackle the roads since we don’t ever really get snow, so it’s actually pretty dangerous out there, which is why everything just shuts down. I tried to venture out to the gym today when I saw on twitter that it had reopened, but ended up having to turn around and head back home bc the roads to get there were like an ice skating rink. All the snow that melts is just turning to ice, but I’m really hoping we can get out tomorrow to try to grab brunch somewhere. Sunday I’m driving up to North Carolina to take an adorable English Bulldog I’ve been fostering for the past month to meet some potential adopters. Fingers crossed he finds his furever home, as I don’t want to get more attached than I already am.
Have a great weekend everyone!
