Trend Spin Linkup - Skirts + The Perfect Valentine's Look

Skirt // Top c/o // Boots (old, similar save, similar splurge) // Cape Coat (similar) c/o // Watch c/o

Velvet has been another big trend this year, and can you blame it?  I have been searching for a while for the perfect one.  I wanted a pretty red color that would look just as great for holiday parties as it would for a Valentine's Day date night.  This pretty little velvet skirt I'm wearing today is only $35.  Can you believe it?!  It's the perfect length for me, and I love how flouncy it is.  Paired with an off the shoulder top and over the knee boots, it really is perfect for Valentine's Day. 

I know Valentine's Day is still a month away, but it's the perfect time to go ahead and start thinking about what you're going to wear, what gifts you're going to buy and of course what you're going to do!  Shane and I plan to go out to Flemings for dinner and then have a little staycation in Memphis for the night.  I can't wait!  What is your favorite style of skirt?  Are you obsessed with velvet this season too?  Come linkup your favorite skirt and check out the featured bloggers below.  Thanks for stopping by friends, xo!
