The Velvet Combination

Top: Thrifted // Skirt: Topshop // Shoes: Penneys // Bracelet: Vintage

I didn't go on much of a trek to get these photos, they're actually taken in the courtyard that my apartment looks out onto (the pic on the left is the view from my bedroom window). The reason for the unadventurous location is because I was in a bit of a rush, I was heading to town to celebrate my friend Nicola's birthday. We went to Captain America's, ordered too much food and stuffed ourselves silly. We had a few cocktails too! Only €3 for a Cuba Libre? Sure, it would be rude not to. And, of course, we mortified her by belting out 'Happy Birthday' in the restaurant. She forgave us though, as the song came along with a mountain of ice-cream and brownies.

As for my outfit, there are some lovely textures in this look. The skirt is velvet and the top feels all soft and silky. I stumbled upon the top last year, but had no idea how to wear it. I picked it up regardless, and I'm glad I did, because I think these two pieces make a fun pairing. It's definitely different!

*Thanks to Alan for taking these photos.
