As I mentioned on Always Trying’s post I’ve been trying to wear my velvet and velour pieces in unfancy, everyday kinds of ways. Here are the first couple pix, plus some winter white that I wore with an overly matchy complement of bright blue accessories. What do you think?

1 never made it out of the house, because I wanted to hear your opinions of the flannel pajama top as daywear. I typically wear it as loungewear around the house, and enjoyed the velvet pants with it.

2-7 The green velour shirt is short-sleeved, but was fine on a nearly 50 degree day with a long-sleeved shirt over it. The close-up with messy hair was taken after I got home, when I realized the necklace doesn’t really show in the head-to-toe pic.

5-8 is a no-velvet day, but I was having fun with the blue & white theme with bits of red. The purse ties in because there is a bit of green in the sweater, and the strap has red & white. Its suede subs in for velvet. I considered the blue & white back pack, but that just seemed like too much of a good thing.
