An Ode to Coral Reef

Loving this color combo: bright coral & wine.  This Gap sweater, Old Navy pants, No Rest for Bridget boots, & Charming Charlie accessories give a wonderful fall look.Pulling this look together with an Aztec patterned clutch from Charming Charlie.Pulling this look together with an Aztec patterned clutch from Charming Charlie.Necklace layering with gold, turquoise, & wood.An Ode to Sherwin Williams 2015 Color of the Year: Coral ReefFollowing what the trends are in interiors is something I do on a regular basis.  Sherwin Williams is one of my vendors that I use frequently and I was excited to see their announcement of the selection of their 2015 color of the year: Coral Reef (SW 6606).  A blend of pink, orange, & red, they describe the color as being “Upbeat, optimistic Coral Reef celebrates time for renewal. “

As an ode to the bright color, I pulled this Gap sweater that I purchased from a consignment shop and paired it with my Old Navy wine colored Pixie pants.  The deep burgundy color grounds the coral, keeping the look from being too overpowering.  It was purely coincidence that the Aztec print clutch from Charming Charlie carried both the pant, sweater, & necklace colors.  The turquoise (a complimentary color to the coral) in the layered necklaces looks beautiful against the sweater.

Wearing this color absolutely makes me optimistic and upbeat.  I am going through a renewal right now, so it seems so appropriate.

I love to read your comments!




  1. You have inspired me to wear my coral this winter! Coral was definitely my color this past summer. I picked up so many pieces in peachy, punchy shades. I love that you rooted your coral in browns and reds for a more autumnal look. And isn’t turquoise such a versatile shade? It’s reminiscent of tropical waters during the spring and summer, but it’s so earthy and rustic for the colder months.

    That clutch is a great find, too! I’ve been collecting more and more clutches. They’re my go-to date night bag. I love that they now range from glitzy evening bags to more casual, bohemian designs made from everything from raffia to cork!

    1. Thanks Liz! Turquoise is one of my favorite stones. I have quite a few pieces with it. It is also special because my grandmother, who has Native American roots wore it all the time and I so admired her.

      This clutch was a total whim purchase as I was looking for old picture frames at garage sales and found this guy for a $1. I have a Loft yellow raffia one that I love wearing in the spring and summer. Oh, do you have a cork clutch?!! Love to see it.
