Jewel Tones For Fall

jewel-tones-for-fall
 

Jewel tones are some of the most flattering colors on the rainbow spectrum. In deep, rich hues, the colors instantly inspire feelings of sophistication and luxury. They obviously become more popular in the Fall, as the previous seasons’ brights and pastels fade away with the Summer sun. Adding jewel tones can be an easy way to transition your wardrobe into the cooler weather – either with an accessory, coat, or shoe. Another thing I love about jewel tones is that you often find them paired with sumptuous fabrics – think silk and velvet. Overall, the deeper saturated colors look great on everyone and will keep your wardrobe on-trend. See below for some of my favorite picks in the season’s hottest shades.

I feel like I say it every week and then have to take it back…but Fall is officially here in Atlanta. This week was one of the first where it was consistently chilly and a sweater was absolutely necessary.

 

As you can imagine, the day goes from being chilly to warming up a quite a bit in the Atlanta sun. To combat the bi-polar weather, I’ve been wearing sweaters with skirts as a happy compromise. This year, my go-to sweater is a cream off-the shoulder number from Intermix. On this occasion, I decided to pair it with a metallic, blue pleated skirt and my Miu Miu oxfords. While they’re totally dramatic and induce thoughts of the Spice Girls, these denim studded oxfords are my new shoe when I want comfort. They might not be for everybody, but they’re for me!

So the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was a couple of weeks ago. Did you dolls take advantage?

 

What I love about Nordstrom is that not only do thy carry the designer brands we all know and love – Tibi, Rag & Bone, etc… But they also have contemporary and affordable lines that are great for adding basics AND flair to your wardrobe? Remember that wrap top I wore recently and am obsessed with? Scooped that up at Nordstrom!

 

My other fav Nordstrom buy as of late – a simple and versatile white sundress that’s as comfortable as it is cute! It’s a stretch fabric that is easy to throw on, and the midi-length is just what I’m craving as Summer is winding down. I’ve been styling this dress with colorful mules, and my denim jacket – but you could also dress it up with a silk bomber, long duster coat, or just go bare-shouldered in the sunshine! Funny thing about this dress….when my mom saw it, she was so obsessed she actually took it out of my closet! I had to order a second one for myself. And with a price tag of only $41.40 – I didn’t feel guilty at all. Yep, you read right… less than $50! I highly recommend this dress as a staple for your wardrobe! Let me know what you dolls think in the comments below!
