Gray, taupe coral, stripes and florals

Happy Monday lovely ladies!
Twinnie gave me the sibling to my green jacket. I have been coveting this coral one for some time so we did some swapping!

I am combining stripes and florals today. I like the results but of course I value your opinions. Here goes
AT striped top long sleeve top
coral jean style jacket
african trading beads (real and courtesy of mom from one of her trips)
gray levi demi-curve id straighleg jeans
Born taupe shooties
floral multi color scarf
poppy red raincoat

    That coral colour is lovely on you Meredith! Another winning combination!

    Ah, a sister to share with! The pattern mixing is spot on, and the color combo is fresh and fun. I love the way you've continued your leg line with the low-contrast in pant and shoe. I also enjoy seeing you in a high-energy color. Have a great day!

    I agree with Beth Ann. You look so pretty in color! Great pattern and color mixing!

    Thanks Shannon, BethAnn, Kellygirl,
    I love the coral color and my feeling was that the pattern mixing worked fine but I am so glad you all approve. Hubs did his "You look colorful" today as I walked out of the house with the poppy red raincoat over the coral jacket! I flashed what I hope was a brilliant smile and sailed out the door.

    You are so lucky to have a sis to swap with! You look radiant in this jacket :) you should definitely wear more colour!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks Kirti! I am surely trying to!

  • ManidipaM replied 9 years ago

    Amazing! Lucky you and lucky sis, too!

    Meredith, that coral plus red combo is FANTASTIC with your silver hair and grey base garments, and I'm amazed at your ability to find a scarf and necklace that *exactly* match tones and print scale!

    This is an exemplum of a pattern-mixed and colour-blocked (in layers, no less!) outfit.

    I think these are great color combinations! You look so fab!

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Thanks so much for noticing the necklace in the outfit. I am trying to sneak in a necklace into a lot of my outfits because if I have to remove the scarf, I want something nice to look at! I am so glad you like the colors and patternmixing with stripes and scarf!

    Poppy is perfect with coral - very nice sis you have!

    I like how you mixed the African beads in - the wood is very warm looking element. I totally understand the scarf mix over the necklace.

    What a great way to carry your family with you today after you all had time together this weekend.

    Thanks ChristieAnne! I think sis was nice too! Mom always brings back some pretty exotic and eclectic things as gifts. I have difficulty incorporating that type of item into my wardrobe but I thought the beads filled the neckline and sort of indirectly repeated some of the tones and colors of the jacket and shoes.

    A winning look Meredith! That coral is perfect for Spring...hopefully, the temps are warming up where you are?! It'll be in the 70s here this week...I've had to start digging around in my still-boxed-up summer clothes.

  • Meredith1953 replied 9 years ago

    Our weather is truly schizophrenic right now. Yesterday it actually tried to snow! Today is it sunny and in the 50s. In Boise we don't truly count snow out of the picture till after April. I am just taking advantage of the nice days in between. Plus I layer A LOT so that I can be prepared.

    Thanks for liking the outfit. I was pretty happy when sis said I could have the coral jacket to keep my green one company. They are such a cute couple!
