Color Love : Coral

coral shopping guide

While transitioning my closet for summer, (those who live in city apartments know what that's all about) I realized that I don't really own anything in coral. This is surprising since it's a color I actually quite like and find almost universally flattering. There's something about this punchy vivid hue that makes it so right for the warmer months. I like how it ranges from a pretty muted pastel to a fun bold bright. It looks amazing with white, mint and blue. Are you a fan of coral? What do you like to pair it with?

Ahhh I am absolutely loving coral and mint green and the moment, and you are SO right, those two colours go so well together and look great for spring/summer. The swimming costume there looks pretty flattering, but I'm pretty sure the only things I own in coral are a nail varnish and possibly a tee. Strange, like you say, when you think how much I love the colour! Rosemary x

Hi Rowena! I have a "coral crush" as well and every summer I wear this color a lot! What a coincidence, you know I recently bought a dress in this hue! You have to get soon something coral as I know this color could suit you very well! Love the romper and the slides most. Have a gorgeous weekend my friend, many hugs! xo

I do love coral! The first ever "coral" purchase I made was a lipstick a few years ago. I like the lighter shades best.

Now that I'm thinking about it I don't think I own anything in coral either - and I adore the color - reminds me of the 50's! Love those glasses!

I fell in love with coral all over again and this is the perfect time for a dose of bright colour because we are in winter here and the weather has been very dull and depressing. I appreciate your great feedback, have an awesome weekend!

Vanessa N said...

I ADORE coral! It's one of those colours I want to paint my entire room in/live in, which explains why I have so many coral blushes, haha. I love that jumper, but OF COURSE it's from Topshop -_- ($$$$)

I have a few things in coral and like them, I think it's a really nice color. I've been gravitating away from most color these days and I don't know why.

I think everyone should have a tuxedo-clad elf! I grew up on peanut butter and fluff sandwiches and though I actually only eat a tiny bit of sugar on the weekends if that {and will only have agave or organic cane type} I do like the idea of fluff in hot chocolate in the winter. It's more delicious than marshmallows and more vegetarian. I've never tried dry shampoo but people keep asking. Most of the time my hair is just fine but it revolted against the last shampoo I got. So far the new one has been okay but I want to see how it goes for a couple of months.

Did you know an ad took over your whole blog for 30 seconds and destroyed the comment I was writing? :'(

Such a bright cheerful Colour, Rowena! I must say I don't wear much of coral though, perhaps should give it a try next time.
