{Look Book} Jewel Tones

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  I did!  I was super productive and it felt so good.  I cooked, I cleaned, I organized, I shopped.  I feel like I am almost ready for Christmas now.  I love all the excitement in the air this time of year.  

I did take a break from all the buzz and spent a beautiful afternoon at the park.  The weather was so lovely, I had to get outside and enjoy it.

I was so inspired by the colors of this dress and jewelry.  The deep red, cobalt blue and peacock green remind me of the most beautiful jewel tones.  I see rubies, sapphires, and emeralds when I look at these colors (if you haven't noticed yet, I'm more than a little bit jewelry obsessed)
