Why a velvet choker may just be your new favorite necklace

When I first laid eyes on this dress, the three-quarter length and pop of color immediately drew me in. I've mentioned I have a lot of weddings I'm attending this year, and while in the beginning I opted for a simple, classic dress, I've recently been on the lookout for something a little more on the edgy side. I loved the idea of offsetting the loose shape with the more structured look of a black velvet choker. The choker is making its debut in every fashion magazine, runway, and major fall photo this season, and my favorite way to wear it is by adding it to a more feminine look... love the contrast!

This weekend in Boone was one of the biggest highlights of my year. It was beautiful and the time we spent there was incredibly relaxing while being able to catch up with close friends... more photos and details of our trip to come!
