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's work blazer suggestions

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.

My New Blush BlazerNew blush blazer for spring

That’s when I found this blush blazer at Zara. This blush blazer is super versatile for spring

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!The slimming cut and long length sold me

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.It's easy to dress down with cute jeans and a casual tee

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?! I don't usually wear pink, but this blush blazer is perfect

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…The blazer paired with dark jeans and a casual tee is perfect for spring

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…
