Jeanne says: The dangers of dressing in the dark! I thought the navy in these pants matched the navy in the sweater. I still like the outfit, but I was surprised about how the pic turned out! I LOVE coral and navy together so I was delighted to find these flowy silk pants from J.Crew (on sale of course). Such a cool and comfortable pant for warmer weather.

I love Kate’s coral and magenta combination. Coral is an amazing color on her. Come to think of it, who DOESN’T look good in coral? It is a warm and mostly flattering shade. Kate has combined it with her animal print shoes and black tights and she looks smashing. Although I see snow on the ground behind her, this ensemble is a great one for the transition between seasons.

Kate says: I love pairing coral with other pink/purple colors — they complement each other so nicely! I have gotten a TON of wear out of this cotton J.Crew Factory sweater, and I have fun finding new items to wear it with. Like this chevron print Loft skirt. This is a great example of summer weight items (all cotton) that I warmed up with black tights.

I love Mom’s anecdote about getting dressed in the dark — we’ve all been there! I love these silky pants with the coral shell, but I have to admit that the polka dot cardigan might be too much for me! With the flowy silhouette of both top and bottom, I would have preferred a more structured jacket or blazer to add some balance. But Mom’s right — coral and navy are a brilliant combo!

    Two of my favorite colors, so I just have to comment on how well you have both chosen to showcase them! I’ve been following the blog for some time now and am always pleased to see your individual take on similar items. Very inspirational. I’m probably closer to Jeanne’s age and am amazed at what she puts together with so many J. Crew pieces! I always thought they were a little too preppy but now I realize how stylish they look. Brava girls!
