If there’s one thing I like about the temperatures turning cooler, it’s wearing more jewel tones.
Anyone who knows me knows I love the color purple, and the deep plum hue of this dress is no exception.
When I visited Gatlinburg, Tennessee, recently with my husband, I popped into Dress Barn at the outlets there. I honestly wasn’t expecting to find much. I’ve always thought of the store as maybe a touch too “maternal.”
Luckily I was pleasantly surprised and walked out with a bag filled with great items, including this Calvin Klein dress. And I was really excited to pair it with this amazing emerald necklace from Noonday Collection! The colors set off against one another beautifully.

When inside my chilly office, or when the air gets even colder here in Alabama, I’ll throw on a great blazer, like this well-cut design from Lane Bryant (similar here). I’ll put on opaque tights under my new Style & Co. booties from Macy’s, too.
The material of this dress makes it easy to wear without much fuss. I’m so glad I found this dress because it’s a keeper!
Do you wear more jewel tones when fall and winter come around? What are your favorites?
