I've Waited All Week for a Day Like Today

Today is what we call in the blogging business as a “lazy day”.  It’s my first day off in a while, and I’m looking forward to sorting through unexplored dressers to see what I can’t live without, and what I can donate this week. 
However, this outfit doesn’t feel like a lazy outfit, because velvet has an uncanny ability to make every girl feel pretty.  I love to mix different fabrics with velvet, as any mix tends to accentuate the fabrics that you put together.  Pair it with a hat, and you’re off for any occasion – like a nap – which I intend on taking right now.

Jacket: Free People Dress: Thrifted Shoes: Frye

Of all the vintage you have I was sure this jacket came right from the 70s, it has such great details and then I saw it was FP! I love that you can make clothes right from the store look vintage and look like they have a story already!
