Mommy and Me Outfits – Fur Vests and Velvet Pants

Velvet flare pantsWhy do I feel like it’s been awhile since we’ve twinned?!?! Ahhh it’s been too long, but we are back with another great post for our Mommy and Me Outfits series and yes, we are wearing VELVET, again! I have to tell you, that my moms favorite pants are a pair of teal velvet pants she has worn for years. She always raves about how comfy they are and I would always just nod and move on. But apparently everything comes back in fashion because now I am trying to buy up all velvet everything and now my mom is like, see told you so!? And I have to say that both of our velvet pants are like flare / bell bottoms which is also like old coming in to be new again, lately. But baby bells, I die, I think her whole pant wardrobe should be bells, do you agree? 

A little bit about our outfits, we paired our pants with a cream sweater, fur vests and boots. It’s a super simple casual winter outfit and all the pieces truly are warm and comfortable! But really, I think these velvet pants can totally be dressed up when worn with a blouse and some heels or even more dressed down with an oversized top and slippers!

Also, I just wanted to talk a little bit about something called Project Sister Act. It’s the complete debunking of the myth that fashion blogging is restricted to and dominated by only one age group.There are women from all walks of life and ages that can pull off the same color or trend their own way. This month’s theme is velvet and I have to say, it’s definitely a trend that has come back this winter and I know a lot of people think that they can’t pull it off. But just look at these women of all ages, doing it seamlessly.

Hope this inspires you to step out of your comfort zone a little with your fashion choices, whatever your age may be! If my 2 year old, my 30+ year old self and all these women can wear it, you can too. 😉 And if you want to save these outfits for later, feel free to pin the image below!

    As you know I am a huge fan of Mommy+Me matching looks and you two couldn’t have looked more beautiful in those stunning velvet pants and the neutral fur vests. Where in the world did you find identical velvet burgundy pants?! I love them. Also, your smiles are infectious, Sandy. Vivian is a beautiful little girl.

    I loved this outfit so much I featured it on my Thursday Moda this week. Check it out on the link below and welcome by to linkup again this week. Love your style! Thanks, Ada. =)

    If you just so happen to be cleaning out your closet and don;t want those pants anymore, can you send them my way? Forever 21 doesn’t have them anymore and I soooooo want to do this shoot 🙁
