One shoulder Velvet Sheath Dress / Tory Burch Kira Clutch / Stuart Weitzman Nudistsong Sandal / Tory Burch Reva Bangle Watch

I love the holiday season and all of the festivities it brings. I’m excited to partner today with Nordstrom to bring you Velvet Dresses for the Holidays. This gorgeous one shoulder velvet sheath dress with double ruffle is perfect for any upcoming holiday event!  I know just the night I’ll be wearing it!

Rich velvet is one of my very favorite winter and holiday fabrics. The texture is just so luxurious. When I saw this dress I knew immediately it was coming home with me! You may remember this dress that I wore to one of my best friend’s daughter’s weddings in May.  I’m also a big believer in if something looks good on you, buy it in more than one color!

This velvet sheath dress is incredibly flattering. The stretch velvet fabric is so comfortable and forgiving!  I love a one shoulder silhouette and then add a ruffle…I’m sold!

I’ve paired it with a beautiful and versatile mirrored silver leather clutch with gold hardware and my favorite sandals that go with everything.  You’ve seen them here, here and here.  The delicate Reva bracelet watch I’m wearing is featured on my Gift Guide for Her.  It has four additional interchangeable bezels in different colors.

Another velvet piece I just picked up is the gorgeous velvet skirt you saw in yesterday’s post. I plan on wearing it as I styled it yesterday but also it would be fabulous with this great top.

Nordstrom is one of my favorite places to shop all year but especially for the holidays. Their Buy Online, Pick Up In Store feature is truly my favorite. The staff at my local Nordstrom knows me well and is always so friendly.  I love the ability to shop from home from what is in the store and have them deliver it straight to my car! That is the ultimate in customer service!

I’ve gathered more gorgeous velvet dresses for you in the boutique below. You can also find lots of festive looks in my Holiday Style Shop.

Best of Travel 2018

2018 was one for the books in the way of travel for me.  This time last year I had no idea it would be that way!  We created so many memories as a family traveling to Mexico, Rome, Florence and Venice.  Travel is something our whole family loves to do and I can’t wait to see what this year holds!
