Velvet Valentine

Velvet tee: Calypso Boutique   |    Denim bomber jacket: Vintage (thrifted- similar here)   |   Pink denim pants: H&M   |    Sneakers: Converse   |   Leopard satchel: Anthropologie (old, but available here + here)    |   Statement necklace: Anthropologie (old)   |    Turquoise bangle: Miss Molly Vintage

      A few trends that I'm loving for late winter: velvet, pale pastels, + bomber jackets.  Today's outfit just happened to combine them all and was perfect for the spring-like temps we had in KY this weekend.  I picked up this amazingly drapey and soft velvet tee this weekend from Calypso Boutique at The Market 301.  I feel like it's the perfect layering staple to carry my winter wardrobe over until spring hits!   I layered it with a thrifted chambray bomber jacket that I feel like I'll be wearing non-stop into spring.  I picked this jacket up at a garage sale a few summers ago and when the bomber trend hit this season, I was ready with my $1 find!  I've found a few similar jacket options for you andI've linked them + all my outfit details above as well as at the end of this post for you to shop!
