Styling summer velvet top & embroidery bag

Adventures hide in different forms. To some it can be an action, full of adrenaline such as bungee jumping or skydiving. To others, it can be discovering new places or new things... either way, it brings us joy and makes us richer. 

On Sunday we were headed to one direction but on our way there we saw a ruin on the hill. We had no idea what it was, I admit, that is how much I know the surroundings. But we had time and our curiosity needed to be satisfied. 😉 We inserted a route to the GPS and headed there. We parked a little away and walked all the way up.

At the top there was a leftover of an old medieval castle dating back from 1600. It is said to be one of the first castle from that era in Slovenia. 
The view from there is spectacular and I recommend a visit if you are ever in the area. The route is a little small for two way traffic especially for high season but you can hike- it is not far at all and makes a good exercise. 
The red velvet top (similar here) I am wearing in this post isn't new but it is a unique piece. Velvet trend came out after I purchased it and I am always happy to be one step ahead of the game. 

I don't think velvet material is hard to style. Itself brings a lot of attention and anything around it can be styled minimalistically with one statement piece if wanted which in my case was this shoulder bag. 

I liked that the bag has red detailed embroidery which in fact is one of the reasons I picked it up (the colour game, that is). It's from Stradivarius and is my absolute favourite at the moment. Also a great bargain for all those high-end embroidery bags. 
Do you have a velvet top/piece in your wardrobe?

Thank you for reading,
