As you’ve seen in the past few weeks, I really love coral this spring! I went into to Old Navy recently and walked out with three items in that wonderfully bright and happy color. I know, I’m a little crazy – but I don’t care. Color makes me happy!
One the trickiest aspects of finding your style is learning how to pair tops and pants/jeans. The key is proportion. If you ever check out the “fashion police” photos of celebrities you’ll see that’s one thing the critics focus on – and criticize – most often. A blousy top with wide leg/flowing pants or skirt makes even the thinnest super model look heavier than she is. The blouse in today’s outfit is a good example. I tried this blouse with khaki pants and quickly decided that skinny jeans were a much better option for me. I could have tucked the shirt into the khakis for a more tailored look, but today I was going for comfort so that option was out! The outfit would have been ok without accessories, but I love the way the pearls and silver chain look against the coral. What do you think?
