Coral Pop


So, apparently I really do love a high-waist, regardless of whether they love me or not (it’s a tumultuous relationship, to say the least).  I’m wearing one again today, this time in skirt form:



Last time I wore this skirt and sweater together, the lovely and fabulous Jodi, of Day2DayWear, suggested a pop of pink.  I didn’t have a pop of pink but I do have a pop of coral, which is a pinky-orange and so is practically the same thing, right?  True pink or pinky-orange, Jodi was right, I love the added color.

The coral pop comes both from my belt (Steve Madden via Ross) and my coral-and-Peruvian-jade earrings (2010 Crafty Wonderland purchase).  And I really do love the coral with both the aqua sweater (Target 2011) and the blue skirt (vintage, thrifted).  I also added a camel Mary Jane wedge (Corso Como via Piperlime) and a few bracelets.

Today’s Takeaway?  Everything is better with orange, be it pinky-orange, tangerine or traffic cone.  Trust me, I have a blog.

Happy Wednesday, All!

Gracey

P.S. Thank you all for your kind words about my photos yesterday; I’m still all out of sorts but am taking the ostrich route to recovery.  It’s only a problem if you don’t like sand in your ears.

  1. The coral pop is excellent! I also like high waists, even when they don't really like me, but I do find it generally works better with skirts than pants. You look fab in yours. :)

  3. "Trust me, I have a blog" is something I legit said after holding up a pair of neon underwears at my bachelorette party and said "Ah! Neon, very in this year." I got many, many rounds of laughter.

    Still. I will trust you. More orange!

  4. Perfect coral pops! Love this look lady. Also, I think next time I give anyone any fashion advice or my opinion, I'm using "Trust me. I have a blog."

    PS I love yesterday's outfit too. Like whoa!

  5. I honestly said "oooh" when I opened this post. The colors and the high waist and the everything look awesome.
    Also, "Trust me, I have a blog" is a great line! :)

  8. Ooh, I love this! The colors and the shape are fabulous on you. (I love a high waist too, it's not mutual.) I would have never thought to pair coral with navy and aqua but it totally works.

  9. Gorgeous! I love the midi length skirt and the bright pops of color in your belt & earrings.

    I love your blog & the idea behind it. I'm 6'1" (sans shoes) & I'm always having a tough time finding clothes that are long enough (& shoes that don't make me freakishly tall). I'm your newest follower =)

  10. I would say that this skirt definitely agrees with you...in fact, the whole d**n outfit agrees with you!!!

  11. Ahh, so pretty -- I love that you doubled up on the blue. Makes me think of the ocean with the hints of coral. :) Would love to see the earrings close up! And I'm envious that you can pull off the high waist so well! That's tough for me to do, being short-waisted and short in stature, too.

  12. I like this look so much more than the last one! But I think I really like your hair down. And your legs look nice and long with the sweater tucked in the skirt, although that's probably only something short girls like me worry about!

  14. Oh Gracey - this is the perfect colour combo...!!! I'm already thinking what I have in my wardrobe in coral, pale blue and bright blue that will go together. This is such a simple (but soooo chic) outfit, you look gorgeous!
