I’m talking about the gorgeous colour rather than the makeup (is in blusher) although I love that too. But as someone who isn’t usually into soft pastel shades, I actually think blush pink is a really lovely shade for a variety of products. Not just in clothes and accessories but in home decor too. If my husband would allow it, I’d have this colour all over the house!
There’s definitely something pretty and feminine about this subtle colour. It can be elegant without being girly – in a barbie doll pink sort of way. I have so many items of clothing in this tone including shawls and shoes so I must be drawn to it.
It’s a small step away from nude, which is a shade I also love. Being a light, almost nude shade it mixes well with deeper colours. Blessed with being fair and generally pale I have to be careful not to look washed out but this spring and summer, this is what I’ve been wearing.
The Perfect Jacket
In the spring (yep – this was taken just before the heatwave began in not-so-sunny St Ives) I was wearing this lovely blush aviator jacket from New Look. These jackets are everywhere and perfect for a cool day. The faux fur lining makes it feel snuggly and the faux sheep skin on the outside makes the jacket feel soft. This has a hint of rock star with the leather jacket style and cool zips, but softened by the pastel shade. A versatile jacket and will be making an autumn appearance this year for sure.
These are my trustee blush pink ballet shoes from H&M, and I wear them all the time because they go with everything! Jeans, slacks, skirts.. I like them because they can be smart or casual. A bolder colour would be more restricted to certain outfits but these are pretty flexible.
I wore this all summer!
Now this blush pink halter neck dress, from Boohoo.com was my summer staple. It cost me about five quid (because I love a bargain – and if it’s online, even better) and it was perfect for those hot days. Probably the right length to cover the bits I want to cover, with a waterfall hem to make it more interesting and floaty. This dress is probably described as being a midi length but it sits just below the knee which is a flattering length (on me anyway!). Perfect for doing the nursery run (just throw on some flip flops) and hanging out in the garden on a sunny day. I reckon it’s probably glam enough for a meal out whilst on holiday too – just jazz it up with some jewellery.
Although I have to confess, because I got it in the sale, I also purchased a black version!
I went into Dorothy Perkins recently and saw these in the sale so naturally I couldn’t resist. They are just so pretty. A blush pair of espadrilles with cute ankle buckle. These shoes are really comfy and go well with jeans or dresses and would have been great for my holiday. If I could get away with wearing them for work then I certainly would! Simply lovely and great bargain buy.
Bardot on Repeat
Finally, this blush bardot top from the online store Shein. The Bardot neckline is everywhere right now and before now I’ve completely avoided it. Maybe in my head I thought my top would fall down or something. But now I know that isn’t actually the case these tops are really quite flattering! I’ve ordered a few basics from Shein and being affordable fashion, I had little to lose from purchasing this top. I guess it was the colour that attracted me anyway!
You might recognise this as my Instagram profile and on also my Wunderbrow post (because I was playing around with my eyebrows!). It’s a perfect little top to go with jeans or summery pyjama type trousers. However a cool bodycon maxi or midi skirt in a plain colour would dress it up for an evening out.
