Corally Yours...

 Happy Friday you all. 

Is it summer or is it summer? She came in with one helluva bang huh? Almost 100 degrees and the new season just hit. I'm preparing myself by stocking lots of bottled water, magazines, and library books so that I can remain nestled inside my house with the A/C on full blast. Though I am a summer baby, me and heat don't mix well at all!!..

As I was scrolling through my Facebook timeline, I noticed that many of my blogger friends had posted outfits for the Bloggers Do It Better series. Usually, I will receive an email beforehand but this time I didn't. Kristina hasn't done one of these challenges in close to 3 months so I had just assumed she had done away with it. WRONG! It's back and it's in full swing. This month's challenge was to style coral and mint; upon first thought, I figured that I would definitely sit this one out because really, who the hell owns mint items!? Then I thought about these mint colored BCBG pumps that have been collecting dust in my closet.

Pumps-BCBG (old)
I paired them with a coral blouse and destroyed jeans and the end result was this...

Top-Target/Jeans-Bare Feet
My absolute fave part of the 'fit is my vintage Dooney and Bourke. I love how the neutral color allows it to be pair with a huge variety of outfits.

Purse-Vintage (thrifted)


All in all I felt the outfit was really simple and definitely looked better in my mind than it does in the photographs. Some combinations just don't go over well on camera.


This is definitely one of them. 


I don't know; maybe it's the shirt!  Maybe I should've gone braless because my strap kept peeking out.  Maybe I should've paired it with a pant that had a bit more detail. Maybe even a printed pant.


Then again, maybe I'm over this whole outfit!!!


What would you have paired this coral top with?
I need suggestions for the next time I style it, PLEASE!!

Go here and check out how my other blogger friends style their coral and mint. 

Thanks for reading!
XOXOXOXO

  3. I think your outfit is cute and wouldn't change a thing. I don't own anything in mint. No, I have mint nail polish, that's it.

    1. Thanks so much. It's no longer fashion when you have to try extremely hard to put something together.
