Jewel Tones

I love that this fall is a season that warmly accepts jewel tones...because let me tell you- I am loving them. Especially rich, deep purple and eggplant colors.
I'm also a huge fan of mixing these shades of purple with gray or deep taupe colors...what a pretty combination!
Today you are getting close-ups of my top . I really love it and got it on clearance from Torrid when they had an extra 50% off clearance sale this summer. It was meant to be worn sleeveless, but I thought it would look cute over a black tee. Next time, though, I will probably choose a black tee that is a little more fitted through the arms, because the loose sleeves on this one made me look a little frumpy.
Top: Torrid, $12ish on super clearance
Long-Sleeved Tee: Old Navy, $10ish last winter
Necklace: Kohl's, a few years ago

Also- if you look closely, you will see that my nails are also a deep purple color. I recently picked up one of the newer shades of my favorite nail polish, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure, in Purple Pulse. I love it for this fall. It retails between about $5.99-$7.99 depending on the store you buy it from.

Talk to you soon my precious jewels ;) (haha get it- jewel tones? yeah- I'm lame!))



  1. Gray is my favorite neutral but I have to say I am guilty of not pairing it with purple yet, Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Very nice combination of the two shirts, definitely it was just a long sleeve black/gray shirt.


  3. cute outfit! i like the gray and that nail polish color is hot!
