Rose Coral

Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog, and happy first day of spring!

I love this uplifting rose coral color,
 it's a great shade to lighten up with at the end of a long, cold winter
The temperatures have not quite warmed up enough to the warrant
switching out my winter clothes to spring,
but these looks will help me bridge the gap

My first outfit is a remix of a sweet cardigan I wore
earlier this winter in a post about winter knits
For this wear, I chose a mid-wash denim skirt to go with it 

 Also wearing my 60's vintage brass butterfly buckle belt

Carrying my pleated fabric handle bag it a darker shade
of this yummy pinkish orange hue
Interestingly, Rose Coral is in the Pantone color palette for this spring season
from fashion week in London, but not in New York
I have noticed that most of the palette is usually quite similar but not the same
for these two show locations  
Also wearing my 60's vintage brass butterfly buckle belt

I chose delicate gold tone jewelry for this outfit 
My birds on a branch necklace, and a two tone wrap bracelet
For any of you with hard to fit small wrists, 
I have good luck with some of the Lucky Brand styles
Also, small hoop earrings and vintage enamel butterfly decorative hair pins
Butterflies are everywhere for the coming season
with the popularity of all things Y2K    

Sparkly metallic perforated stacked heel slides
to finish the outfit
I am wearing these shoes a lot more now than when I first purchased them
I love them, but it's taken me a while to realize just how versatile they are! 

Next another outfit using this lovely, flattering rose coral color
This time, on a long sleeve blouse with ruffled cuffs

Carrying the same deep rose coral bag as in the first outfit

To accessorize, I chose a favorite long rectangular vintage silk chiffon scarf
The print is not very well shown in this picture,
I'll have to show it laying flat another time, as it is very beautiful!
It is a peach and pale blue print in a scene with cranes in their environment 
Gold tone 3-D spiral flower/star shaped earrings are my only jewelry 

Finishing the outfit with asymmetrical strap
reptile embossed heels

Here is an outfit with a jacket in a much brighter shade of coral from spring, 2019
I noticed I am still buying the same coral color carnations at to market today 
as I was 3 years ago-I really do love the color! 

First spring flowers to bloom in my garden-Crocuses 

Hope everyone enjoys the first week of spring!

Coral is a fun spring color! You have so many great pieces in this shade! Love the first outfit especially!

You always dress so lovely Di!

I love to see your accessories as much as the outfit and that butterfly belt is fab for Spring! I have been on the hunt for a coral blouse myself. Yours looks very pretty with both skirts! I love the button down style of your jean skirt, that is what I have too, and wore mine this week as well.
thanks for linking!

Very envious of your fabulous denim skirt and the cream skirt - both items I am constantly looking for! Very pretty coral color. The scarf is so feminine and pretty. Have a good weekend!

This colour is great for spring, and on you! You wear it well but that second outfit is my favourite, Your little bag in the first two outfits is so cute as well and is a great accessory with both outfits! :)

Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! Hope you're having a good weekend. We had a birthday party for my son yesterday, so much fun!
