just peachy

I have been seeing a lot of mint green (say it isn't so!!) and of yellow (love) peeking out of the grey cloud of winter--touted as a the "new spring neutrals" that can help transition a wardrobe from one season to the next.  However, I have to say I am all about peach.  Peach or coral are not normally my first choices when shopping for something, but the color just keeps popping up on my radar again and again and I can't seem to help myself.  Its got a femininity to it that is undeniable, definitely part of the appeal to me, but you don't have to be all girly girl to rock the color.  It is stunning when paired with a chocolate brown or grey, and looks very fresh in a jean with a color blocked outfit.  I also love it paired with black for a little unexpected edge.  And depending on your skin tone, you can find a shade from a subtle peach to a kick ass coral and go from there.
My Current/Elliott The Stiletto fuchsia jeans from last fall have been one of my most favorite pairs, so I was happy to see them in a beautiful Rosewood Color (ok, not quite peach, but close) as well as the Dusty Peach Leopard.  I don't know any girl that doesn't love J Brand denim--it is the brand that seems to fit almost every body type--so the ultimate spring denim for me has got to be the J Brand 811 Mid Rise Skinny Jean in coral.  I am apologizing in advance for how often you will see me in these.
Chloe's Marcie Horseshoe Hobo in coral just about gave me a heart attack it is so classic but cool, and it comes in a small cross body version that would be beautiful against a grey coat or a white top.  Yeah, this girl loves her handbags.
J Crew's Contrast Striped Tee is an affordable way to add some color blocking and some peaches to your shopping basket. I also love Vince, this papaya colored top with the serged side seams and swingy fit really take the tee up a notch.  And there is nothing plain jane about See by Chloe's Leather Zipper Bow Scrunch Ballet Flats.  Or add a patent leather skinny belt to give your outfit a little more of my new favorite color.  Even a little peach on your cheeks or a swipe of your favorite Chanel Glossimer (you have one, right?) either alone or over your lip color.
From peach, to papaya to coral, you can add a little cheeriness to your wardrobe even if you still are wrapped up in your favorite cold weather knits.  I love that a little color can not only change up my outfit, it can make me feel just a little bit more optimistic, even in the midst of winter.
