Holiday Wardrobe Essential: The Velvet Shirt

December is always so fun and busy, filled with holiday events and parties, which means a lot of opportunities to dress up. This bordeaux velvet shirt has been one of my go-to tops — the color is gorgeous and the texture is luxurious. Plus, it’s long and flowy, so you can eat without feeling constricted haha.

A couple weekends ago, Husband and I did a staycation in downtown Seattle during the post-Thanksgiving festivities. We shopped, watched the tree lighting, and relaxed (I took advantage of the incredible clawfoot bathtub). I wore this outfit to a steak dinner, which is one of my favorite indulgent meals when I want to treat myself.

I got these over-the-knee boots last year, and since then, I’ve worn them with anything from a leather jacket to oversized knits to mini dresses. A classic pair of black OTK boots are versatile and they immediately make an outfit look dressier. You can shop for similar styles of over-the-knee boots here.
