Wore: Jewel Tones

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Spring time is here (in case you didn’t know) and the opportunity to wear jewel tones is in full effect. I have had this turquoise necklace for several years and normally would wear it with plain neutrals because I just wasn’t sure what to wear it with. And then one day I decided to play with color and bam, I realized it looks awesome paired with another color. I should have known that jewel tones go together, this isn’t rocket science.

Having an opportunity to explore my closet and try different pieces together is something that blogging has really helped me with. I no longer look in my closet and always pair the same shirt with the same pair of pants. I now mix things up and playing with different colors and pattern combos definitely helps.

These shoes are a great example of that. Normally, I would wear my leopard print shoes with black or red because to me, those are some great colors that go with leopard print. But as I said in this post, leopard print is basically a neutral so these shoes add an extra pop to the outfit instead of plain black shoes.

Skirt: Old Navy. Plum tank: New York & Company. Cardigan: LOFT. Shoes: Payless. Necklace: Made by me!
What colors do you like mixing together? Turquoise and plum are a good combo, I’d love to hear some more. Share those with me in the comments section below.

I’m linking up with Style Elixir for Style Sessions, The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday and Because Shanna Said So for Random Wednesdays.
