Well hello there! Happy Hump day!

Guys, Thanksgiving is TOMORROW. AHHHH! Are you ready? I am not. Not even close. Every year I tell myself I am going to prep weeks in advance, grocery shop a week before. And somehow that all goes out the window, here I am a day away, and I have got zero done. The worst part is I don’t even have an excuse for it, ha! #notsorry

Let’s take a quick break before all the madness begins and let’s talk velvet. I am swooning over all of American Eagle Outfitters’ new holiday collection, especially their velvet pieces. And you know I am allll about that velvet. It’s weird how things come and go with fashion. I remember velvet back in the day, then it disappears. Fast forward to 2016 and it’s hotter than ever.

I love shopping at American Eagle Outfitters. They are always affordable and on trend! Their laid-back casual styles get me every time. Today, I am teaming up with American Eagle Outfitters to bring you three ways on how to wear velvet.

1. Make it casual. You can style this top with a denim jacket and a pair of chic sneakers (love the gold detail on this shoe). It’s a great weekend casual look.
2.  Layer it up. Add a soft cardigan and dress it up with heels. You can even add a belt over the cardigan for extra texture and to cinch the waist.
3. Or, layer it down… This slip velvet dress is great to layer (as you can see). If you live anywhere in the US that has a Winter (totally jealous, we are still in the 80’s) you can opt for chunkier fabrics like I did here. I love the idea of wearing the dress under a sweater and letting the details of the floral dress pop at the hem.

There you have it my friend, three simple ways to wear velvet. I hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving! Eat all the turkey and dressing and laugh with those you love.
