Happy Friday everyone! Hope you had a great week! It’s been a busy one for me, trying to get stuff packed and moved out of my parent’s house and commitments of my own. We are keeping our “littles” again on Saturday night, and I am looking forward to that! The weather in Dallas is back in the mid-eighties for the weekend so that swimming might be a good call with these little ones. Next week I think we get chilly and I hope it is for good! Today, the Chic at Every Age girls are featuring this beautiful gold velvet top from Free People. We all loved it as soon as we saw it!

We loved it in the gold, but it also comes in sand, raspberry, and black, here. This top is another “show” top because of the velvet and the lace sleeves. It’s the perfect holiday party top! It does require wearing a higher waisted jean, pant, or skirt because it has an elastic band at the hem. It has a great price tag of $98 too! Let’s see how the girls wore theirs.

The Fashion Hour– Natalie chose to pair hers with a dark burgundy pleated skirt. She is very pregnant but made this shorter top work! I hadn’t thought of putting it with burgundy until I saw how good it looked. I will be breaking out my wine color denim to wear with mine!

Style of Sam– Sam paired her top with her ruffle hem black denim. I think the ruffle detail on the bottom of the jean makes the entire outfit uber feminine!

So Heather– Heather is wearing her top with a distressed charcoal pair of jeans and a dressy silver sandal. Is it my age, but I never think to wear a strappy sandal with my jeans! Looks good on her!

Me- I knew my pant had to be a higher waist one, so I chose to pair my top (which is an XS) with these Hudson lace-up front jeans. These jeans are amazing because they are almost like a girdle (remember those?). They hold your stomach in! I’m kind of obsessed with them! My outfit is nothing special but wanted to wear it authentically. Sporting my new velvet Gucci bag that my husband bought me this summer for my “cancerversary” gift. I haven’t pulled it out until now because it is velvet. I love it!

Don’t forget this top comes in three other colors here. It’s a great date night top! I hope you all have a great weekend! xx
