Blue Velvet Dress: 

This is probably going to be my very last outfit post of 2018, so I obviously had to dress up in the most extra thing in my closet right now, right? All this beautiful maxi blue velvet dress needs is some minimal jewelry and fun accessories, and you’re good to go.

I don’t think I’ve done a true outfit post on here in a while — I’ve constantly been touching on new topics throughout the year while sharing my OOTD pics. However, I wanted to get back to my roots today amid the holiday madness and share some good old outfit inspiration. 

I always gravitate toward holiday outfits that I can wear all winter long. I currently use Rent the Runway Unlimited for all of the special occasion pieces that I know that I’ll only wear once, and try to purchase items on my own that I can wear over and over again.

This sheer maxi blue velvet dress from & Other Stories is a showstopper, and would look incredible at any holiday party you have left on your calendar (or New Year’s Eve!) It would also be a fantastic option for any winter date night or cocktail party you might have in the coming months. I will probably rock this dress at some of the blogger/media events I have on the horizon as well.

This blue velvet dress didn’t need that many accessories: I decided to belt it and pair it with my favorite hoops, sky-high booties, and the trusty clutch that I’ve had for years. 

While I’m 99% sure this will be my last outfit post of 2018, my friend Jessica has a slew of NYE outfit inspiration posts going live on her blog this week, Lauren has a massive holiday style guide, I love Cathy’s laid-back holiday ensemble, and I want everything sparkly in Shelby’s closet.
