When you think of the holidays- Thanksgiving and Christmas- what colors come to mind? Obviously the warm, wine hues, the pine green, gold and silver. But, what about navy? When you think about it, where else does navy really fit in the grand scheme of season related colors? I think it fits perfectly in the most wonderful time of the year.
That’s why when I saw this beautiful velvet number, I knew I had to have it. If summer was off shoulder everything, then fall and winter is definitely all velvet everything (I bought an embarrassing number of velvet pieces during this weekend’s sales). The color and the hemline were an added bonus. Navy is one of my favorite colors (I just had this revelation as I’m typing this). So much so, it almost made our wedding palette cut. It’s such a regal color that looks great on an aray of skin tones.
I opted to wear this dress as we welcomed family into our home to celebrate Thanksgiving. The stretch of the fabric made for a comfortable fit which made it easy for me to move around the kitchen while putting finishing touches on the meal.
Another thing that I really love about navy is that it pairs well with gold or silver. As a result, it was a perfect fit for a pair of silver, sparkly Steve Madden sandals that I’ve had for quite some time now. However, I could definitely see myself wearing this dress again and accenting it with gold accessories and shoes.
I found this dress on Amazon. You can see it here. *Warning* This dress does come in multiple colors/ styles, so don’t be confused. Select color to see all available options.
