I know I can’t be the only person who finished ‘Orange Is the New Black’ in three days and is feeling totally lost without Red, Piper, and the whole prison family. Since I’ve yet to find myself a new show to binge watch, (I’m thinking Ray Donovan might be next) I’ve decided to channel some of my post-OITNB sadness into a new post. While I do admire Morello’s ability to look fab in prison, (tissues as hair curlers? Genius), OITNB obviously lacks in the fashion department. Since orange is totally NOT my color, I decided to focus on orange’s not-so-distant-cousin, and my favorite color of the moment: Coral. Below are a few of my favorite ways to show off this fun and summery color.
I know you guys are probably getting sick of me telling you how much I love Aerie’s bikinis BUT I wouldn’t keep telling you about them if I didn’t seriously love them. This coral bikini from Aerie has an adorable ruffle on the top, as well as a cute little pineapple print on the top and bottom. Between the print, the color, and the comfortable halter fit, you’ll be wearing this bikini all summer long. The top is currently $29.99 and the bottom is $19.99 which means you’ll have the who set for $50! Pretty sweet deal considering some stores, which shall not be named, are trying to selling bathing suits for upwards of $150! They do realize they’re selling two tiny pieces of fabric, correct? Total pet peeve.
There’s nothing cuter than a bright skirt in the summer, and this coral skirt from NASTY GAL totally fits the bill. With the high waist and pleated detail, I would totally rock this look with a crop top like the one on the model. For a daytime look I would swap the crop top for a graphic tee and flats. All of this coral is reminding me how much I need to put on some self tanner..
If you’ve never heard of BaubleBar I seriously suggest you head over to the site and check it out. They have the cutest jewelry at great prices, plus if you sign up for their emails you’ll receive 15% off your first purchase. Also, every Friday and Monday they mark down one item to $10 and another to $20. If you sign up for the emails they will send you hints to find the “Buried Bauble.” It’s like an adult version of a treasure hunt, only the hidden treasure is totally enviable and affordable jewelry! Case and point: this eye catching coral statement necklace is $36! Use the 15% off code and you’ll have yourself a gorgeous necklace for about $30.
I’ve been searching high and low for a new beach bag that will (A) be able to hold the copious amounts of magazines and other items I bring to the beach (B) look cute (C) doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I think I’ve finally found what I have been looking for with this straw and coral trimmed beach bag from ASOS. This bag is cute enough to go from the beach, to a night out, and at $29.53, I think this will be my new go-to bag.
Are you guys loving coral right now? Is there another color that you’re completely obsessed with for summer? Let me know!
