WIW: Navy, coral and brown

I love the Navy, peach and brown ensemble from this morning, and immediately tried to think of ways to do it.  It ends up that I have several options, so I chose the warmest, rescuing this sweater out of probation for the day.

The sweater is duller and pinker than the photo shows - almost a muted coral.  and I like the way it's working with the navy and the brown.  I even switched my black and white striped bag for a slouchy brown one for the occasion :)

What do you think?  Suggestions for improvement?

Come to think of it, I wore something awfully similar a couple of weeks ago, didn't I? I think I prefer this more muted version.

    I love that you did this formula so fast! The colors flatter you!

    Hey, look at you go!  I eyed the formula on the blog with some suspicion, but I really like your interpretation with coral rather than peach.  You look really pretty!  The coral is a great colour for your skin and I like how the brown coordinates with your hair.

    Awesome go on Angie's formula i really like that neckline on you. Why was the sweater in probation?

    Way to go on the formula!! Isn't it fun to try these ensembles? So great! I like this colour combo on you.

    So fun that you were able to put this to work right away!  Terrific formula, and the color looks fab on you!

    I love how you broadened the concept.    I saw Angie's post and thought "not for me - I don't wear peach or brown."  But I do wear coral, and I love to wear cognac accessories with navy.  Way to tweak the formula to work for you and help me open my eyes to possibilities. 

    That coral color looks great on you!

    love that color on you.
    i'm going to have to try this combo, since i love navy and coral

    Thanks all - the sweater was in probation because it's shorter than I prefer. 

    But I do like it, and it's nice and warm for a chilly day, so it'll probably stay around for a while :)

    You look great!  I haven't seen the ensemble post yet - off to find it.  I generally read blogs when I'm up with the baby in the middle of the night.  He's starting to sleep more though and I'm not up nearly as much so I need to find another time to catch up on blogs.

    Great colour combo, and that shade of coral is beautiful on you!

  • Dee replied 8 years ago

    I love the coral color and the neckline of this sweater is so flattering too!

  • pil replied 8 years ago

    Nice casual look with a punch......maybe another sweater that you like better will show up. Or you can make one :)

    I really like this on you! I like that you took a color formula that can be a little sweet and made it a little tougher by upping the intensity.  A light peach sweater in this shape wouldn't seem you to me, even if it looked great.  This has just the right balance!  

  • Glory replied 8 years ago

    Love this on you! I think this colour works really well.

  • Beth Ann replied 8 years ago

    Woohoo!  Love it!
    I think the brown is such a rich neutral with orange --- it makes the look more modern and strong.

    Amazing color on you...very nice pairings!

  • Angie replied 8 years ago

    You nailed the colour combo. Well done, Amy. You are so fun. xo
