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).

Typically I'm not much for jewel tones--I think because I also associate them with greens and purples--but I LOVE navy! And you look classic in this outfit!

That's a gorgeous outfit. And thanks for telling me your location. Becks? I just realized I don't know your name. Never saw you use it anywhere and it's not on your profile or e-mail address. In my mind, I assumed it was something like Oomphelia. Becks sounds better. :-)

What a fun series. There is definitely a dichotomy between East and West Coast dressing. Navy is an awesome jewel tone!

Lovely outfit :) About that double-finger ring... is it difficult to do things while wearing it? Seems even typing would be a little awkward with my two fingers stuck together!

Cel - i don't have a problem with this one. as long as the ring is skinny, it's not difficult to do normal things :)
