Hey friends! Today is a great day for more reasons than one and that’s always good. My sweet friend Andrea of Living on Cloud Nine is having a birthday today, so why not hop over to her blog and wish her a big
old Happy Birthday!!! Today is also our Ageless Style link up. The first Tuesday of every month ten over 40 bloggers present a different style theme and show a myriad of ways to wear it, all the while proving you can still be fashionable and on trend over 40 and beyond. This month our sweet Kellyann got to pick our theme, and she chose coral, the color of the year. Ahhh, such a beauty it is, and one of my long time favorites.
I’ve used coral in both my wardrobe and home decor several times. Back in the late 90’s I had a coral living room.
Maybe there was some foreshadowing in that picture, because Katie’s room in our current house is coral and navy. I guess my love for coral really has spanned the test of time.
One of my favorite outerwear pieces is this coral military jacket. I purchased it about 3 years ago from Gap and wore it a ton. I guess this year I’m going to need to call it back up to the front lines. (Don’t you love my military references?) A military jacket is a wardrobe staple and while they are typically olive, this coral one goes with so many things and is an unexpectedly fun piece and luckily I’ve been able to find several very similar options.[show_shopthepost_widget id=”3531279″]
This outfit was easy to pull together. I grabbed my current favorite jeans by KUT from the Kloth. They have just the right amount of stretch. I’m wearing them in a petite, and you can see the length is perfect for me at 5’3″. They’re also on sale for 55% off. That’s a pretty good deal.
Since the pieces in this outfit are pretty plain, I added fun accessories in the form of one of my most worn necklaces and my snakeskin flats. I’m tellin’ y’all that these shoes are perfect for spring. I’m reaching for them repeatedly at times when I would have previously worn leopard. Not too worry, I haven’t cast my leopard ones aside, they’re just taking a little vacation. If you are interested in my tassel necklace, Accessory Concierge is offering free shipping and returns for the entire month of April. I probably wear this necklace more than any other in the spring and summer months.
Last but not least, let’s talk tees. Y’all know that I have the worst time finding tees that work with my short waistedness. I just got this one from JCrew and absolutely adore the eyelet details at the top. It’s cut fuller and shorter, but can still accommodate a little front tuck. The sleeves are too cute and will still work under a jacket with no problem. I also ordered the same tee in a really pale pink that’s super sweet.

Each month we ask a blogger to be a guest host and Kellyann asked Kim from Fierce Fashion to join this month. I’ve been reading Kim’s blog for a little while, and she’s super sweet and has the best eye for mixing color. She is always combining colors I wouldn’t have thought to mix, but just love the way they look. Stop by her blog and check her out.
