Fashion Friday - Coral!

Dress - Bebe color block dress calypso coral;  Shoes - Steven by Steve Madden;  Similar here Pink pearl necklace;  bracelet from Cache (old)

It seems like I've gone from nearly no coral items in my wardrobe, to several different dresses in just a couple of months.  Both of these dresses were Christmas and Valentine presents from the Murph.  I've had the Steve Madden shoes for a couple of years with nothing to wear with them because they seemed to clash with my pinks and silver.  Now it seems I have plenty to wear with them and I'll take advantage of that this spring and summer.

Dress - Victoria's Secret crossover bra top dress;  Mac Lipstick - Impassioned;  Similar here John Hardy bracelet; silver cuff bracelet - old;  Shoes - Colin Stuart (old)

Trying to get Cadence out of the "photo shoots" is next to impossible.  He's incredibly clingy and demanding.  Maybe he was trying to remind me that he's sort of coral too, but sort of not.

He's kind of orange, not coral.  No pink, unless you count the ears.  Sorry Cadence!

Now I need to find an OPI shade of coral for my nails.  The OPI South Beach collection has a couple of options.  I'm open to suggestions.

Coral is one of those colors that I'm not really sure about.  Sometimes I like it and sometimes I don't.  It is a pink orange color and I LOVE pink, but orange, not so much.  As long as the coral is more pink than orange, I like it.  Both of the dresses above pass the test.

The Murph did good!


  1. I remember some style expert saying that coral looks good on nearly every skin tone- and she was right! I like how flattering coral is-
    Speaking on flattering- girl you have got one smokin' bod! Yeowwww!

    1. I didn't think I would like coral as much as I do. It's a nice break from pink which is my fav. I do work out a lot but as I've gotten older it doesn't help around the middle sometimes. Thank god for spanx!

  2. You look GREAT in coral. Wear this color often. I mean it.
    Cadence looks great in orange.

    1. I think I could get use to a little coral. Orange is most definitely Cadence's color!
