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.
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 Blazer
That’s when I found this blush blazer at Zara.
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!
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.
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?!
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…
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.
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…
