Sometimes an outfit just comes together on its own.
A few weeks ago I purchased this cute floral kimono from Forever 21 for about $20 to wear over dresses on chilly date nights. I started holding it up next to dresses in my closet and this great velvet dress I bought last year jumped out at me. It is also from Forever 21 but is not on their site anymore; here is a similar style from the current season in the same color and cut.
This is the perfect outfit for warmer fall evenings. Velvet is truly my favorite fabric for fall; you can read more about my feelings about velvet in a blog post I made earlier this month. The texture of the dress really stands out against the kimono. I love that the kimono is a little longer than the dress, but the slit makes sure I still get to show some thigh.
I’m also wearing my two Marcy Kentz necklaces that I blogged about earlier this week. They really complete the outfit!
