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 have my eye on the Winston Worlds Away gold leaf coffee table.  I love the shape and how it mirrors a Greek key.  I also love the blush velvet pillow from Arianna Belle.   

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!
