charmed by coral

Usually I love the start of a new month. It gives me a little mental note that I have an opportunity to start fresh (or attempt to, at least). Eating healthier and working out more often usually fall under this category. But right now, June is here and it is pouring rain in Vancouver Raincouver. Especially after my trip to Mexico, I am in major sunshine withdrawal. Luckily, I have fashion on my side. Not only am I becoming inspired by the neon colours that are everywhere this year, but I'm slowly turning over my wardrobe from neutrals to brights. One of my absolute favourite colours to rock right now is coral. The orange shade looks amazing with classic colours like beige or gray, but also makes such a statement when colour blocked with a kelly green or hot pink. I couldn't resist putting together a few of my favourite pieces (I'm in love with the bold Zara trench). You can be sure I'll be brightening up this dreary weather with a coral-inspired outfit very soon!
