basics of blush

I’ve been in a bit of a pickle lately… how does one shop in August?  Tiny tank tops and swimsuits seem impractical, but I’m nowhere close bundling up for fall. Upon looking through my closet in search of the solution, I found myself drawn again and again to one particular shade. And then the lightbulb went off… blush!

A neutral itself, blush is a wonderful means to take you from summer to early fall. Still light enough to be worn in the many hot days ahead, it pairs beautifully with darker shades (cough cough LEOPARD) and heavier fabrics as well. So when fall and winter finally do roll around, you can layer and mix it to your heart’s delight. Above is the blush-toned outfit dreams are made of… how dreamy are those pumps and drool inducing earrings?!

The one blush item I think you’ve gotta have? A handbag! I’ve loved having this cross body/clutch beauty in my arsenal, and can’t wait to take it through the months ahead. Need something a bit more Mary Poppins-y? Quick! Start a crowdtilt and raid your piggy bank so you can bring this perfection home with you.

Love from Texas,
