The Creative Closet || Jewel Tones

Jewel tones are a favorite of mine. I love the deep rich colors and what better time of year to showcase them? It's as if the weather knew too because the temps this weekend dropped below 70 and the breeze in the air felt like Fall. And had me wishing I had brought a jacket.

This top has been a staple of mine for years. This was my first time wearing it post pregnancy and I think my new chest may mean I have to retire this top. It was almost impossible to bend over without it sliding up showing my back. And I couldn't lift Maddox in the air without showing a bit of my tummy. Not my thing... so it may be the end for the sweet peplum number I have had for years. #sadday #bigchestproblems

Jana looks incredible always, but deep jewel tones are definitely her thing! Also, #hairenvy, always. Check out her post for full outfit details.

I wore this look to church so I chose to stay comfortable in my favorite skinnies from Oakleigh Rose Boutique, use code THEMODERNTULIP for 20% off your purchase, but also make it feel somewhat dressy with this statement necklace, snazzy leopard print flats and my favorite crossbody bag that doubles as a clutch. And a bold lip. Always a bold lip with this girl!

What is all over my carseat^^^?

  1. I love both of your tops with jeans today. The jewel tones you and Jana chose are beautiful. Your necklace is quite pretty, also. Ohh and I would love to co-host again. Do you guys have the calendar schedule available for next month? Let me know please, thanks.

  2. That top is so pretty! #Sadday indeed! I love how you're rocking this look as a totally cool and put together mom (even if you're having wardrobe malfunctions) and the statement lip just completes it. I love me some statement lips as well!

  3. This look is perfect! I love everything from the pattern shoes to the color of the top and your choice of statement necklace!

  4. So gorgeous! You and Jana definitely know how to rock the jewel tones.

  5. Well I love this look and Jana was right on about green totally being your color! But I understand about the top... I'm pretty sure I had to retire one of my peplums post-baby too... it was borderline too short, which just doesn't work for all the acrobatics of baby-chasing :)

  6. cute outfit! i love that top :) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  7. Oh no! I'm sad about you having to retire that top, too! It looks so incredible on you. I feel you there–I've had to retire a few of my favorites thanks to my giant nursing boobs too. :P

    You look gorgeous. I think my favorite thing about this green on you is the way it brings out your pretty eyes!

  8. Such a lovely top! I love the tiny pattern on it. It's too bad it might have to retire. That color looks so beautiful on you!

  9. You look great in that green color! Hopefully, it'll be a short-lived retirement of your shirts.

  10. This top is gorgeous! And loving it paired with your leopard flats :)
