Casual Chic: Colorblock Jewel Tones

I used to believe that colorful pants should always be paired with neutrals on top, but recently, I've been trying to wear my non-blue jeans with other fun colors. Here, I decided to go with a jewel-toned turtleneck to complement the deep purple of these jeans--a recent re-discovery in my closet. I love finding something I bought years ago and realizing it's on-trend at the moment!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and St. Patrick's Day!

  3. I was so excited to see a new post Tam! This look is stunning and perfectly casual chic. Adore those cobalt pants on you - the shape and length with your heels make your legs look sooooo long. I think I'm starting to realize that boot cut or straight leg is more flattering on me than tapered. The scarf and jewelry you used here is phenomenal. Love this so much!

  8. Love that necklace, Tam! the other day I went shopping and spotted some gorgeous necklaces in J. Crew, but of course did not end up buying as they were too pricey for me!! Fab scarf and pumps!
