3 Reasons Why I’m Not Saying Goodbye to Velvet

I’m not sure anyone was happier to see velvet make a comeback than my inner tween. While some have said au revoir to the cozy trend, I’m staying loyal to velvet whether it’s through statement pieces, subtle details, or accessories.

1. Velvet can totally be worn year-round. It just depends on how you wear it! For fall and winter, deck yourself out in the comfy, drapey goodness of the fabric. During spring and summer, I like to incorporate velvet through smaller accents or embellishments, like in the black floral Leith corset dress below. (Sadly it’s currently sold out, but I found an adorable, floral Lulu’s dress with velvet appliques for you guys that does the trick!)

2. You can mix it up with crushed vs. smooth. Crushed velvet gives it a chunkier, more fun look, while smooth velvet looks a bit more sophisticated. This Romeo and Juliet Couture maxi is on major sale at Nordstrom Rack right now! ($36.97). My burnt orange velvet midi dress is sold out, but I found the next best thing on Lulu’s right here.

3. Velvet adds a level of luxe to any outfit. I snagged this dress right off the rack at Nordstrom because I loved the contrast of the flowy, feminine chiffon and the bolder velvet trim. It amped up the dress for me, and paired perfectly with a thin suede and velvet choker from my fashion line, Everything But Brunch!

Save the Date with Minted Weddings

I am so excited to partner with Minted and while I have received compensation in exchange for this post, all opinions and ideas are my own. This post also contains affiliate links and I may be compensated if you make a purchase.

As a current bride-to-be myself, I have been keeping my eye out for the best Save the Dates on the market. That’s how I came across Minted. In this post, I will be sharing my favorite Save the Dates from the Minted Weddings Collection! I chose a mix of soft, romantic styles, and modern, minimalistic designs. Here is a peek at my favorite fridge-worthy Save the Dates.


I absolutely love this design! The floral details throughout give it a warm, earthy style, while the calligraphy adds a stunning, whimsical feel. The 3-photo template gives the newlyweds the perfect opportunities to show off those adorable photos taken at their engagement sesh!

I’m personally a huge fan of the magnet option, as it looks neat and clean for all of your friends who will be posting your card on their fridge!


With foil-pressed printing on the border, this Save the Date is already sure to stand out. I love the simplicity of the text, as it keeps the foil border the focus of the design. It also allows ample space for one beautiful, bold photo of the two lovebirds!


I chose Marlowe because it’s a happy medium between the first two. The calligraphy of the couples’ names adds a romantic touch to the more contemporary font of the date and location. This style proves you don’t have to choose between romantic and modern- you can do both, and the two pair seamlessly on this card.

Keep in mind all Minted Save the Dates can be completely customized by you! Want to change up the font colors? No problem! The site offers a variety of color schemes for each card. Feeling like you want to add some text foil? Minted’s got you covered! Deciding between recycled, pearlescent, or signature paper? Minted offers all of them and more.
