Adding a Blush Blazer to My Spring Wardrobe

Ever since I became an “adult” (honestly, I still don’t feel very adult-like..) I’ve felt most put together when wearing a blazer.

It may be the old news anchor in me, but there’s just something about throwing on a blazer that makes me feel like I can tackle the day! Big meeting? Bring the blazer. No idea what to wear? Throw on a blazer! It’s just always been my adult go-to move in the working world.casey-work-18

But wearing a black blazer during the hot summer months isn’t always the best idea. Holy sweaty. When the temps heat up, I’ll often wear shift dresses to work and throw a light sweater or blazer on over it. I have a khaki and gray blazer, but was in need of something a bit more fun.

That’s when I found this blush blazer at Zara. casey-sunglasses

When I first saw it, I was worried it might read to 80’s. Ya know..pastel color, shoulder pads, long? But once I put it on and saw the structured feel and slimming cut, I was hooked!casey-blush-blazer-5

I’ve now been wearing it to the office on a regular basis. Because it’s pretty dressy, I like pairing it with dark jeans and cute sandals. The gray t-shirt underneath also really dresses it down.casey-blush-blazer-18

I have been wanting to wear the blazer with a black shift dress and heels, as I think it would make for the perfect pop of color!

And for the weekend, I think it would be super cute with my leather leggings, a black top, and these black heels. So cute, right?! leopard-clutch

Blush has been the “it” color this season, so I guess it was about time I jump aboard the blush train. While I normally don’t wear much pink (actually not much at all…), I’m really digging this feminine hue. Although this tan one is super cute too…casey-blush-blazer-9

And I’m also pretty excited because I found a new amazing spot for blazers & work wear…Zara. Honestly I’ve only gone in there a few times (it’s on Michigan Avenue and is huge and overwhelming), but if you take the time you can find some really nice pieces for work. casey-blush-blazer-17

Blush Favorites

So what do you guys think? Are you loving blush these days? This blazer has prompted me to add a few more pieces of blush to my spring wardrobe. Like this adorable top or this purse! Just probably not all at once, because then I may be encroaching on Easter egg territory…

    Nice blush

  • Erin

    love the blazer! i’ve got this amazing one from loft that is teal. I really love it! i do find it to be versatile. I’ve been wanting one of a different color and ended up with a black blazer that was collarless — and it was perfect for my work trip a couple weeks ago. but blush… so pretty! love it paired with gray!

    • Thanks Erin! That teal one sounds gorgeous…and a collarless black needs to be added to my wardrobe asap!

  • Beautiful! Love the blush trend! So soft and subtly girly girlish! I just bought a pair of blush colored cargo jeans from Target in March and they are the new fave item in my #momuniform.

    • Thanks Kerri! Love the thought of blush pants. Soooooo pretty!

    Hey girl- love the new look! so pretty for Spring and Summer!

  • Katie Lewis

    I love the look! If you have one near you, I would check out Talbots for blazers; amazing quality and they have great sales. I’ve been eyeing this blush one myself.

  • Trang

    Blush is beautiful….on other people such as yourself. Unfortunately, it doesn’t compliment my skin tone and hair color combination. I wish it did because I really do like the hue and there are so many cute things out there this season in this color. My only hope would be to opt for a small cross-body purse in that color.

    • haha you crack me up Trang! Love the idea to try a purse instead!

  • Pam

    Love the blazer. Looks great on you. Never thought about a blush blazer until now.

  • Kristen Ayotte

    The new blazer looks great on you! I’m loving blush and florals this Spring. Groundbreaking, right?! 🙂

    P.S. There’s also a nice Zara on State St that seems a little less frantic in my opinion. Corner of Randolph and State. You can also reward yourself with a Magnolia Bakery cupcake when you’re done!

    • Kristen….thanks for the tip! The Michigan Ave. one is crazy town! I love the idea of a less hectic one, and that cupcake sounds like the perfect post-shopping treat! 🙂

  • Kimberlie Pelletier

    The look is fabulous! Those shoes are amazing!!

    • Thanks Kimberlie! Surprisingly super comfy too!
