I’ve got some really BIG news I’ve been keeping a secret since last week… You’ll have to scroll down to find out, but it’s this exact color combination! These really are my favorite colors (no surprise)… I’m a neutral girl so when I was putting this outfit together it was super easy because what goes better together than black, brown and white? But, what looks even better instead of a great pair of black skinny jeans? Black velvet jeans from Nordstrom!
SHOP THE OUTFIT
I’ve been talking a lot about velvet this season, but I really love this trend! I’ve had the same pair of black skinny jeans for a few years now. The fit good, and look good. However, I think it’s time to get a new pair this year. Instead of a basic black pair of skinny jeans, it’s all about the velvet jean. These black velvet skinny jeans look more sophisticated and don’t fade like normal jeans!
I always buy my jeans at Nordstrom because they have the best selection of high and low priced jeans, and they have great alterations. I specifically picked these velvet jeans because you all know I have super skinny chicken legs. Usually, I don’t have to get my jeans hemmed but these were a little long. Totally fine though because it only took about a week to get altered!
If you’re thinking about a new pair of black jeans this year I really think you should consider the velvet jean. They even look nice enough you could get away with wearing them at work!
So what’s my BIG surprise… Meet Cooper!!
I adopted him last week at the SPCA influencer event. Honestly, I was NOT planning on coming home with a dog! I’ve been thinking about getting another one because Jaxson is getting older and needs someone to keep him on his toes. I really wanted a golden retriever, but I just couldn’t justify it at this point in my life. So when I saw Cooper and heard his story I was hooked 🙂
He is 6 years old, and 6 pounds. So tiny! But, a huge personality! He was rescued from a puppy mill at the end of September. He had to have 10 teeth pulled, and get neutered…poor guy. He’s doing much better now, but still a little skittish.
How is Jaxson? Well… He’s pretty pissed, haha. I think he is still wondering when he’s going home. I haven’t mentioned anything about Cooper yet because I’ve felt so guilty bringing him home to Jaxson. I know he will be fine and forgive me soon though.
If anyone is thinking about getting a dog this holiday season I strongly encourage you to adopt!!! These guys deserve love and a home just as much as any other dog!
