The first Saturday in may is upon us, y'all! I'm so excited for the 2018 Derby because it's also Cinco De Mayo and I'm crossing my fingers baby Jones will make his appearance (#babydemayo!). Today I'm sharing tons of outfit inspiration for the races and if you'll be at the Derby this year, have fun!Read More
Happy Tuesday, friends! I'm so glad you're here because today I want to talk about ways to brighten up your winter wardrobe and mix new spring pieces into your cold weather looks. The jewel tone trend is nothing new, but it pops up every season in different variations. These colors will be in stores this spring as well, making it even easier for you to mix winter staples with your bright springtime purchases!
Winter seems to last forever once Christmas is over and by the time February rolls around, I'm ready for spring clothes. The only problem is that it's still freezing and wearing dresses meant for warmer temps isn't the best idea. That's why the jewel tone palettes I've created below are perfect! You can easily mix pieces from spring/summer with winter ones and just like that you have an outfit that will brighten up any dreary snow day!
In today's post, I went with an emerald green moto jacket and sapphire blue skirt. To pull the look together, I opted for a black lace-up top and black over-the-knee boots. Both the jacket and skirt will be perfect for spring too, allowing me to get more wears out of each piece.
I hope these color palettes will inspire you and help you to reimagine your wardrobe this winter! Have a great day!
This might be my favorite dress EVER! That is a strong statement, but it's so perfect for beautiful fall days like this one. The length is also just right to wear with boots like these and it shows the perfect amount of leg.
I belted this dress with my mom's brass nameplate belt because you know how much I love to accentuate the waist! This belt is so special to me because it has her maiden name initials on it, long before any of us kids were in the picture! I also have one of my dads nameplate belts and it's one of my greatest treasures. These belts are everywhere in Kentucky and you can shop them here. It's my favorite Kentucky tack shop and all items are hand made with love.
Speaking of things I love, Halloween is this weekend and I'm ready for some candy! I think adults should be able to trick-or-treat too, so that's why I'm offering you a FREE month of Rocksbox! A girl can never have too much jewelry, and costume jewelry is always changing, two reasons Rocksbox is amazing! I got this beautiful bracelet in my box this month as well as the stud earrings I'm wearing in this post. Use the code meandmrjonesxoxo for a free month of fabulous jewelry and have a Happy Halloween!
Last weekend, I went to the pumpkin patch with my family in Kentucky. Fall in the Bluegrass State is beyond beautiful and I'm in awe of it's beauty when the leaves are changing and the air is crisp. We laughed our butts off watching my brother and brother-in-law successfully carry almost 15 pumpkins for the "great pumpkin challenge," and also drank some delicious spiked apple cider!
Besides being able to spend time my family, one of the best things about being home is that I get to borrow all of my mom and sisters clothes, shoes, bags, etc! We all wear the same size shoe (hello, lucky!) and they all have fabulous style. At the pumpkin patch I wore my mom's studded Frye boots and borrowed my sister in law's fringe handbag (under $60 too)! Since the temperature dropped over the weekend, I wore this amazingly soft faux fur vest with a comfy tunic tee. It was the perfect fall day and I can't wait to carve pumpkins before Halloween!
When in Kentucky, I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time exploring The Falls of The Ohio and it was SO COOL! I wore these fab Hunter boots so I could splash around in the water and skip some rocks. Suede skirts are on trend for fall, but they're also the perfect summer to fall transition piece! I'll definitely be wearing this for months to come.
Have a happy happy Labor Day Weekend!
