Toasted Marshmallow

I've had a bit of an obsession with velvet this winter - not that my closet really needed more - but Banana Republic was tempting me with the most gorgeous pieces, and once I tried them on, I was sold. Unlike some of my older velvet pieces, which seem to be glorified lint traps, Banana Republic's velvet is uncannily soft, plush, and slightly iridescent. I had the hardest time deciding on just one color of this long line blazer, the deep cherry red was so tempting, but since I've been embracing all shades of brown these days, the camel colored 'toasted marshmallow' won out. Admittedly, I always wait too long to share things, and many sizes of this blazer have already sold out. However, if your size is available and you can take advantage of the sale price, you likely wont regret the purchase.

  5. I love the combined colors of this outfit. Layers and fabrics, everything is working so well here.


  6. That is such a beautiful blazer I can see why it's selling out! It's a lovely shade! :) I only have a velvet belt - I think the fabric would be too warm here in clothing but I do love the look of a velvet blazer every time I see someone wearing one! :)

    Hope that your week is starting well :)

  8. What a fantastic name for the color of that blazer. And you really got creative with the color pairings here as well. I adore the deep purple-brown of your blouse - and the gorgeous gold touches with your accessories! Such a beautiful outfit from head to toe.

  9. What a gorgeous, sumptuous blazer! I love velvet too, but I sadly don't have much of it in my closet. Banana does blazers so well, and this one is no exception!

  10. I wanted to get some velvet this winter, and I missed out. I may check the sales now!!

  11. Super fun outfit! Love how you paired everything together! xo

  12. Ooh that blazer looks so gorgeous, and you can even tell from the photos how soft it is! I love the texture mix with that silky blouse--what a pretty combination!

  13. That blazer is just gorgeous! It looks so rich! And it pairs beautifully with your satin top!

  14. I love this blazer! It's so pretty and I love the top you paired it with!

  15. Love this look so much and I’m obsessed with the velvet! SOO pretty!

  16. Every time I see someone wearing velvet, I swoon. But then, every time I actually go into a store and try on something velvet, I feel like I am my twelve-year-old self again, putting on a bodysuit for a gymnastics competition. The late nineties absolute ruined velvet for me personally. I doubt seriously if I will ever be able to work it into my wardrobe again. But I love seeing other wear it well and while I my be biased by my love of all shades of brown, I really don't think you could have done the styling of this look any better.

  17. I am REALLY into earthy tones lately, so I LOVE this combination!

  18. I love love love the color of your velvet blazer! This is the exact color I've been looking for!

  19. Love this color! Banana republic is one of my go to’s!

  20. I have not worn my velvet blazer in ages, it probably does not fit.
    The name of the color of this blazer is so cool - it's a really marvelous garment and i can see what you mean by iridescent, it has a hidden glow to it.
