Last week I had a chance to share with you that gorgeous floral kimono with crushed velvet details. If you remember, I mentioned that a fun crushed velvet look was coming soon to the blog. Well, buckle up, because here she is! Say hello to the Lila Velvet Dress from Shop Stevie. I have never heard of this brand until recently. My Shop Stevie rep is a friend I have made via Pure Barre. How fun is that? Who knew I could bond with someone over fashion while getting my sweat on. Thanks for introducing me to this fantastic dress, Ashley! Bottom line, the world is way smaller than you think, it's so important to be kind to everyone. It reminds me of my favorite Pinterest quote, “throw kindness around like confetti.”

Back to crushed velvet dresses! Oh how I wish I could go back in time and take more photos of my fashion choices as a tiny human. Y'all, if I had a dollar for every crushed velvet dress I wore in the winter, I would be rolling in the dough! If you are lucky, I might share an old family Christmas photo where I happen to be wearing an emerald green boat neck crushed velvet dress. I must say, the dress I am wearing here is much more fun! Why? Because it has pockets and is short sleeved; I am way too hot natured to wear anything with long sleeves until it's below 50 degrees outside.

When it came to styling this dress, I wanted to toss it back to the 90's because it reminded me of childhood so much. What screams Cory loves Topanga vibes more than a jean jacket? Too bad I didn't happen to have a scrunchie, which would have made it like a total jump back in time. Living in Pawhuska, our shopping was very limited. One of my favorite things to do was make trips to Bartlesville to hit up the mall. My favorite store until college was Gap. This jean jacket has been in my life since 2003 if I remember correctly. If you happen to be in high school and reading this, know that it's okay to hang on to a few things. I thank my lucky stars that I held on to this jean jacket!

Last year for my birthday, my friend Azure gave me two of these adorable emoji pins (the hair flip girl and champagne bottle). I added a few more to my collection to give my jean jacket a little personality. As you can see, most of them are related to food, I have no shame. To tie everything together, I added on this pink ice cream cone necklace. Jered gave me this necklace a few years ago, isn't it fun? For shoes, I chose the fabulous black mules that I have been wearing all spring and summer long from Target. Got to go, watching Boy Meets World on Hulu.
