east vs west style. jewel tones.

we're back! the girls and i are here with another east vs west series. there are so many great fall trends this year...some of them oldies but goodies while others are new and adventurous. this fall 2014 edition is five weeks of our favorite trends, and we're kicking it off with jewel tones.

if you're new to east vs west, it's a collaboration between six girls (three from the east coast, three from the west coast) where we showcase our favorite trends and see how location and lifestyle influence style across the states.

Jackie / Living After Midnite / New York
Meaghan / District Sparkle / Virginia
Tracy / TheRightShoes / New York

Ashley / Pursuit of Shoes / California
Danielle / Envision Pretty / California
Becks / oomph. / Hawaii

while i normally associate jewel tones with purples and greens, i have a new found love for deep rich navy blue. it all started with this beautiful wool skirt from Hutch. i love the wide stripes and [vegan] leather piping. to keep the look seamless, i paired the skirt with an equally pretty navy blouse and barely there heels from Lulu's.

what would an outfit be without accessories? i added a hint of color with this jewel tone burgundy clutch from love & sunshine and some silver jewelry like this pretty silver-tone twisted wire cuff with pave orbs from INPINK.

i love love & sunshine's carefully-thought-out coordinating linings...cute right? plus, the clutch is generously sized to fit all your essentials and can be folded over or left open (flat).

what color do you think of as a jewel tone?
do you like navy blue?


olive + red.

this is as fall as it's going to get around here, i'm afraid. with temps still reaching the 90s + high humidity, it's [literally] difficult to get dressed in the morning. i tried to put on a pair of jeans this weekend and could not get them up past my knees, because i was so sticky! the struggle is real!

but when it does get chilly, one of my utility jackets is always within reach. pairing an olive green jacket with red [plaid] is one of my absolute favorite combos.

p.s. stay tuned for our fall 2014 east vs. west series
debuting tomorrow!

have you transitioned to fall completely?
what fall trend are you loving?

(mossimo jacket (similar); justfab luxe boots; express denim;

here's a few to try:


summer to fall transition. the utility vest.

utility vest, cargo vest, surplus vest...
whatever you call it, this was probably one of the best purchases i made a few years ago. i have since [obsessed over and] purchased many utility jackets, but this sleeveless vest proved to be most versatile. it makes a great summer-to-fall transition piece because you can layer up without being too warm. so happy to finally be able to pull this one out of the closet again.

what's one of your best purchases?
do you have a summer-to-fall transition piece?
