A TOUCH OF VELVET | OOTD by EUREKA CALHOUN

Happy Friday!  We made it through another week!!  Styling your wardrobe in Oklahoma City during the winter is nothing but a game of roulette.  I sometimes miss the good ole days when the weather was consistent with the time of year because it made life a little simpler. Here in OKC the weather is consistently unpredictable, and forces me to leave behind my style logic.  So instead of grabbing my warmest trench coat and sweater combo I’m forced to think about the possibility of the weather changing from 30 degrees to 80 by the afternoon.....That’s my life right now!!!  Fall and winter is my favorite season and I haven’t scratched the surface of displaying some of my favorite go-to pieces because of the warmer temperatures.  But, I decided to throw away the weather man's predictions and style my outfit based on the season. Go me!!!  

Velvet is one of my favorite materials this season, for obvious reasons.  It is a fall/winter style must have. From boots, tops, and dresses this 90's trend is back and hitting the mark. With my jammed packed schedule, I rely on tried-and-true pieces that will not have me stressed out.  My blue velvet Report booties were the perfect choice for the day!  I picked up this colorful faux fur vest and beanie hat during one of my “ONLY PURCHASE ON SALE”  shopping excursions at Dillard's and Nordstrom Rack.  The vest is soft and super comfortable, but at the same time feminine with a hint of nostalgia. My stable leather pants and velvet booties are always the perfect statement when I want to look chic with minimum effort.  Then I decided to reach back to quintessential Eureka and pile on all the accessories.  I paired the look with my favorite fingerless motorcycle leather gloves and Badgley Mischka bag with rabbit tail in tow. To maximize the look, I also added my favorite Prada sunnies and beloved "Art" belt!

FLORAL PLAY | OOTD by EUREKA CALHOUN

IMG_4378.JPG

Hello beautiful people! This is the first "OOTD" for 2017 and I'm excited to hop back on the blogging saddle.  Whether you’ve been following me for a year or a week, you will soon figure out that I adore playing with my style and mixing it up a little.   Maybe it's the Gemini in me that craves variety and since I'm not into changing my hair color, switching my style feeds my soul.  

It's well known that fashion recycles itself and this season I decided to add my interpretation of one of the trends send on the runways for spring/summer 2017......eye popping florals.  I also incorporated the hottest trend right now, velvet booties.  What’s not to love about velvet, right? Honestly, this might be one of my favorite looks this winter season.  I wouldn't consider myself a floral type of girl but I do love mixing prints and patterns.  Love the idea of mixing patterns so much, I dedicated an entire post you can read here "Bold/Daring | Mixing Patterns & Prints" !  It doesn’t get any better than completing this look with a my beloved championed trench, along with a timeless suede A-line skirt.  This particular style appeals to a variety of silhouettes that's comfortable yet stylish!
