National Velvet

On Tuesday Night Mr TMS and I joined his parents and their friends for a nice casual dinner at Lau's Family Kitchen in St Kilda for their 8pm seating. If you have an opportunity to dine there, I recommend the Patagonian Toothfish - Mmmm delish!

Now even though I wear mostly dresses and skirts, I also happen to be a fan of jeans. I believe they can be incorporated into a look that says casually classy and can be as feminine as you want to be. You just need to team them with a key piece and the right accessories.

I've already established my love of wearing pearls, so I won't bore you with that again, but my particular statement piece for this outfit is the black velvet blazer:

I teamed it with a lace top and some red high heels (all girls should own at LEAST one pair of red shoes) and embellished the blazer with a vintage brooch that I constantly swap onto just about everything black that I wear.

Below is a close up of the detail of lace top:

Peep toe heels go well with a pedi and jeans!

I'm so with you on the red shoes! That's why I own two pairs :P

A blazer with jeans is one of my favourite outfits - you look gorgeous and the accesories are divine!

You look great! A very glam way to wear jeans. I'm sure the parents were impressed :)

Great blazer. I'm unseasonably addicted to anything velvet right now.
