I was surprised by how little peach I actually have in my wardrobe. But there is enough to celebrate peach month – my way!
In my wardrobe I could find a few beautiful scarves that lean heavy on the peach colour inspiration but considering how much I love orange that wasn’t a surprise. It was the actual lack of articles of clothing that are peach that really amazed me. However, even with slim pickings, I have still managed to pull together 3 peach inspired looks from my wardrobe to share with you.
Peaches and Cream: For this first look I have used a lovely pale peach, silk shirt that is so soft and flowing that it is a dream to wear and matched it with a pair of white denim to keep the palette really light and fresh. To intensify the peachy flavour I have added one of silk scarves, wrapped a couple of times with the ends left loose to provide more flow. The orange belt and orange wedges provide that pop of colour that keeps the look from being too bland and the gold necklace and neutral coloured clutch provide a bit of earthy grounding to finish off this peaches and cream look.
Palest Peach and Polka Dots: Again the top is the palest peach and silky. This time I have used the polka dots to bring in a black pencil skirt. I have completed the look with a pair of nude and black patent heels, the black bag from my 10 Essentials post, a pearl bracelet and three strands of pearls that have been wrapped several times to make shorter strands. One set is a double strand vintage necklace inherited from my mother and grandmother and the other two sets (peach and black) I purchased ages ago on a holiday in Hawaii. This is a very lady-like look that works well for the office.
Peachy Keen Vintage: Okay, so calling this looking peach is maybe a stretch but along with the rust and burnt orange there really is a fair bit of peach in this vintage dress. It’s another of my vintage/thrift finds and I love the 40s vibe. The little pin is actually sewn onto the dress. I have used my first ever vintage purchase, the brown crocodile handbag, the double strand of heirloom pearls and a pearl bracelet also handed down to complete the vintage feel. Just for fun I used the gold glitter shoes because I thought they would bring something a little unexpected to the look and I like that they wrap around the ankle. Do you think it is too much vintage?
Well, there we have it, peach month – my way. I have a couple of other items that are varying shades of peach but these three looks provide the best range and are really my favourites which is why I have chosen to share them with you!
