Concrete Catwalk // Very Velvet

November 29, 2012

I feel like I may resemble the pied piper in these pants.  At first glimpse, I’m sure you think it’s because I’ve got a gentle beast running towards me at full speed, but at second glance, you’ll see it’s the velvet.

Yep, I’m almost certain that the pied piper wore velvet.

Check out the outfit details and the rest of the look below, and find out why I feel most at home when I’m near the coast. :)

Going to the beach house has got to be one of my favorite things in the whole world… everything from the laid-back culture, to the tight-knit community, to the adorable pups roaming the streets.  Pretty much my version of heaven, I guess!  Throw in the quality time with some of our nearest and dearest friends, and I truly could not think of many things that could be better.

When do you feel most at home?  Is it when you’re in a certain location?  With certain people?  I’d love to hear a little about your happy places, so feel free to share in the comments!

    So well weighted, flowing, like a Venus, who should be standing on a shell a la Botticelli. Isn’t that panne velvet?

    To be honest I have no idea what the pied piper wore, but the pants are super cool! Great layers in general!

    And I am so jealous that you have the beach nearby… here in São Paulo all anyone wants to do is go to the beach but it is so impossible to get away! No one ever has time to relax!

    Very nice! I love the contrast between the velvet pants and denim jacket! :) And I’m really jealous of your weather, it’s freezing in Stockholm, and dark.

      Aww, I wish I could have sent some sunshine your way, Anna! If it makes you feel any better, we’re back in NYC and it has been a gloomy, rainy, chilly week!
