Orange coral

Wera Stockholm vintage skirt - Cream top George - Nude heels Flex - See by Chloe Harriet tote bag 

Over the weekend I came across some really fabulous jewellery storage trays and came home excited to put them to work. What happened next was unimaginable: I could not fit the stuff in the trays and as I continued to explore other drawers that supposedly hold other things and not my custom jewellery, more necklaces, tassels, pins, rings .. they just kept on popping out. One of the finds was this vintage orange coral necklace. If I recall correctly its from the 1960's or 70's and use to belong to one of my grandmother's sisters. I found it sometime in the early 90's in one of my grandmother's multiple jewellery boxes and chests and I know it was not hers because she does not wear costume jewellery and I have had it ever since. Today it was showtime.

What a great necklace! I have little bits of coral all over my house as decorative items so I'm just enchanted with the idea of a coral necklace.

That is a beautiful necklace! Although it probably wasn't the best feeling not being able to get organised and continuing to find pieces, it's great you rediscovered some! This necklace works so well with the colours in your outfit too - you have accessorised beautifully! :)

Hope you are having a wonderful week :)

¡Hola, Lorena! La verdad es que el collar en coral de color naranja es precioso, pero a mí los ojos se me han ido a la falda... ¡Menudo estampado tan bonito!

Un beso y a disfrutar del fin de semana,

Oh gosh, I can completely imagine the attempts at getting organized only resulting in a bigger mess!
I do like how the coral necklace coordinates perfectly with the pop of orange in the skirt.
