Wardrobe Diaries: Jewel Tones

Taking my wardrobe inspiration today from the beautiful jewel tones littered all over the A/W catwalks and adapting them to casual warm weathered wear. A silky shirt in a loose fit paired with distressed boyfriend jeans was just what I needed for a lazy day in the sun. Add to that a fabulous pair of pumps and a structured ladylike bag to keep from looking too sloppy. When it comes to colour pairings, I'm a big believer in taking cues from nature. After all, when has mother nature ever gotten anything wrong (well, besides the ice age of course and sloths, those creatures are just plain weird). Blue and green is my all-time favourite nature inspired colour combo. The two colours together just scream a sunny day in the park. Don't you agree?

The turquoise silk shirt reminds me of the Aegean sea. Beautiful combination with the violet heels. We need more colors here in the UK. Well, me too...considering most of my clothes are grey, navy...and more grey.

Allison said...

I do agree- I love your outfit! And I couldn't stop laughing about the sloths! Did you ever see the Kristen Bell sloth video? If not, please google it now. It is one of the funniest/cutest things you'll ever see. I never cared for her much as an actress until I saw the video, but it totally made her much for relatable. So funny.
