Berry Tones

New year, new me? Naw Babes, it’s the same ole me, doting on monochrome color palettes every chance I get ❤ This look features a trio of berry tones and most importantly: Multi buckle velvet shoes!!!!  Have you ever crafted an entire blog post about an outfit knowing good and well that all you really wanted to chat about was the shoes?! As is such with today’s post, LOL! 
This entire look came together per my desire to break in this pair of velvet beauties acquired back in December 👀 Picture the scene: I was short on time, and had a big meeting at work. I grabbed two items that looked close in color and then ransacked my collection searching for matching tights. Alas, I found a pair, grabbed my shoes and the deal was sealed. 
The decision to add my fav fun loving pompoms to the ensemble actually came about the second go around. Is everything better the second time around?! LOL! I love the low heel on these shoes and their comfort factor. I sized up, as round toe shoes tend to run small. Do share, have you snagged a new pair of velvet shoes this season?
Until next time Babes,
XO

  8. I can't even express how fabulous your entire look is! The berry tones. The dress. The long vest. The shoes. The shoes. The shoes! I have not acquired velvet shoes this year but that is not for lack of trying. I just haven't found a pair that fit comfortably in my price range! But I did get a similar style of shoes to these but in a tan suede. And I am loving those! You look absolutely divine, my friend! Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge!

    1. Thank you Shelbee!! Monochrome is so my 'comfort zone', and purple is my choice of a neutral hue :) I love suede too! I imagine as Spring rolls in more and more velveteen pairs will be on sale and you'll find the perfect duo! <3

  12. Love this monochrome look! And I'm totally guilty of both of those things...planning an outfit around one item, and perfecting it the second time around! I'm glad you added the poms because they are fun!
