WIW-giving my coral jacket some love

Hi Lovely YLFR'S!
I realized as I was getting dressed this morning that I hadn't worn either my coral or green denim jacket in awhile (I have been too busy enjoying my new white denim jacket and also relying on my trusty medium wash denim jacket). I thought I should give the coral one some love today so I teamed it with my newish JCrew - black and white gingham long sleeve shirt, white straight leg jeans, white watch and black wedges. I tossed in a black and white stripe tote just to keep the graphic contrast thing going.

I apologize for the hideous lighting in my hallway. I absolutely hate these new compact fluorescent light bulbs we are using. I love that they save energy but the lighting stinks and makes my coral jacket look really weird.

I hope you like the outfit and thanks for stopping by.

    Thanks Gabi!

    I haven't tried it with a yellow top (don't own one right one) but that sounds like a pretty color combo!

    Oh, I LOVE this. I simply adore gingham, and I love everything about this ensemble.

    I love the coral with the black and white gingham pattern of your shirt, Meredith. And your striped bag is such a fun way to continue the graphic black and white vibe. Great outfit!

    Thanks so much! I haven't owned gingham in a long time but I felt that black and white helped to keep it a little more multi-seasonal!

    Thanks you so much! The striped bag is somewhat overloaded with everything from wallet to walking tennies but I do think the striped pattern is fun with the black and the white.
