Velvet Top & GIVEAWAY!!!

Velvet Top & GIVEAWAY!!!

Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday! I cannot believe that Christmas Even is ONE WEEK away!!! Holy smokes where does time go?! (I think I say that in literally every blog post I write LOL). In honor of Christmas being SO soon I thought I’d get one last Holiday Outfit Idea up on the blog! I’m also giving away a $200 Gift Card to ONE OF YOU to thank you for ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT always. I could not do this every day if it were not for all of you.

Velvet Top & GIVEAWAY!!!
Velvet Top (ON SALE FOR $40!!) || Toothpick Jeans || Earrings || Boots

**I look a little crazy in these pics LOL but in my defense it was FREEZING out…

I think I ordered this top on Black Friday when it was on major sale and I’m SO happy that I did! It will be perfect to wear on Christmas Eve or Christmas. Or even New Years! First of all, I am loving the velvet trend so much and this just enhanced my love for it. Second of all, I loveeee peplum and all (well, most) things peplum. So you have velvet + peplum = Lauren’s dream. It comes in like 4 colors in case you don’t love the one I chose. I’m wearing mine in a size 2 which is my usual size so I’d say it’s true to size!

Now for these “jeans.” They are the pull on toothpick jeans that are literally SO comfortable. As some of you already know, I wear my black toothpick jeans to work every single day (I have like 4 pairs….) so when I saw that they came in a pull on version, I was like SIGN ME UP! Andddd I do not regret the purchase one bit. Again, they are true to size – I got them in a 26 and that’s what I usually wear.

As for the jewelry that I’m wearing in this post – these earrings have quickly become my FAVORITES. They go with anything and they add a nice touch to any outfit! I wear this bracelet and this one every day! I also recently purchased this bracelet and I love it! It’s only $13 right now and would make a great gift!


As I said above, I want to thank ALL of you for interacting with me every single day! You are what makes doing this SO fun and worth all of the effort I put into it. I want you to know how much I appreciate you so I’m giving away a $200 gift card to NORDSTROM. I had asked you on my Instagram Stories if you’d prefer a Nordstrom gift card or a Visa gift card. The results were REALLY close but in the end, Nordstrom won. The winner will be announced on CHRISTMAS EVE (one week from today!)

There ya have it! A look at this Velvet Top & GIVEAWAY!!! I hope you enjoyed this post!

Thanks for reading!
XO, Lauren

    I love the velvet trend too! Never thought I would but I’ve definitely come around on it. My family is big on traditions so we always do the same things on our holidays. My fiancé and I are going over my aunt and uncle’s house Christmas Eve, my parents house Christmas morning, and then over to his sister’s house for Christmas dinner!
