hello there!

hello again! remember me?
the girl who (in my most recent post)
promised to blog more consistently and
allegedly had a new website in the works?
i am still here! 

work, class, babysitting,
and a nasty cold have taken over (thank
goodness it wasn't the flu--many
of my friends and coworkers were
diagnosed with the flu. i feel so badly
for them, as this bout is seemingly terrible!).
unfortunately, blog posts and social media
have taken a backseat. as i get back in
my rhythm, i am eager to share new
content and eventually, my new website!
jacket envy; it is a real thing.
 i follow numerous fashion bloggers
on social media (both local and non-locals), and i
cannot help but feel envious towards all
the adorable fuzzy jackets. a teddy coat is still
on my wish list, and there are several other
winter styles i am lusting after. one of the trends
i had to partake in this season, however, is the 
velvet puffer. 

earlier this year, i saw my friend and 
fellow blogger, lisa, from story of my dress
wearing a purple velvet jacket. i was immediately
smitten! i have since seen many other stylish 
women wearing puffy velvet jackets with
skirts and denim, or styled over dresses. the 
options are seemingly endless.
for such a trendy item (that may or may
not be in style next season), i didn't want to 
spend a fortune. instead, i patiently waited for
cold weather pieces to go on sale. i found this navy 
 velvet puffer online at nordstrom rack for less
than $30! the dark color is versatile, and the 
coat is incredibly soft and warm.
whether paired with a graphic t-shirt or
more feminine top or blouse, this jacket will
be on major repeat in the coming weeks.

jeans: american eagle, t-shirt: old navy,
 shoes: vince (thrifted via seattle goodwill),
jacket: nordstrom rack (similar here and here;
velvet puffer vest version here), fringe purse: h&m,
rings: forever 21

do you have a velvet puffer in your closet?
what other winter styles are you eager
to try? my online shopping cart (aka wish list)
is ever-growing!
xoxo.
