Sam Loves || Jewel Tones [ Valentine's Day Edition ]February 11, 2014
For the new year Sam and I are bringing you a new look for the "We Love Series" So exciting! In Honor of Valentine's Day coming up we created a jewel tone inspiration for you. Here was the last post in the series in case you missed it. To refresh your memory Sam from The Peak of Tres Chic and I will be gathering inspiration under a certain theme a couple of times a month and sharing it with you. Sam will guest post here in my blog and I will post at Sam's. I guess you could say we are swapping for the day. Since I painted my living room walls a dark blue I'm just really digging this part of the color wheel- the purples and pinks along with it. Here is Sam-
Hi lovers! Sam here, back to kickstart another fabulous year of the "We Love" series with Albertina. With Valentine's Day 3 days away, we felt it was the perfect time to share our favorite jewel-toned outfit and interior inspiration. Being Texas girls, we are already thinking about spring weather and how to transition from the cold winter months in to warmer temperatures. I love the idea of pairing a loose fitting blouse with a graphic skirt + heels. Jewel tones also translate well in decor. They can often create an elegant aesthetic when paired together:
I also love the cut of the Band of Outsiders Cobalt top. The punchy color is a perfect alternative to the red + pink we typically see for Valentines Day.
What is your take on these jewel tones? Whatever you have planned for Friday- whether a romantic dinner out or a movie night with girlfriends, I hope you enjoy it!
