Velvet Vibes

Hello hippies!!

Can we just take a minute to appreciate this beautiful velvet dress?………ahh

I was shopping the Nordstrom anniversary sale (fashion bloggers paradise) and passed by this dress a couple of times. I kept eyeballing it and decided to try it on. Once I tried it on I was sold. This is the perfect dress for fall. Wrap style dresses are on trend for this fall season. So is velvet. The color is a gorgeous mustard color and has a plunging neckline to add some sex appeal. And you can’t beat a dress on sale!! I also got the booties from the #nsale. I’ve worn them a few times and I’m obsessed with them. So obsessed I got them in tan too. These by far are my favorite picks from the sale.

These beautiful pictures were taken by my friend Autumn. I’ve known this girl since I was a kid! She’s so sweet and I was blown away by these shots that she got. She was all up in these cactus’s trying to get the best shots. Poor thing even got a few pokes! Sorry babe. I haven’t seen her in years but she made me feel super comfortable and knew all the right angles to capture. Please check out some of her work on her Instagram

    Love love love the ensemble and the photos! Pairs so well with the cacti background! Reminds me of a look book before coachella season. So great! Cheers! And I’m not at all ready for fall yet but fall here is much different than California and means winter is too close for comfort haha.
