Blush For The Holidays
why you should wear blush this HOLIDAY SEASON
The holiday season is officially upon us with the first weekend of December already come and gone! How did the year fly by so fast?! Like you, my calendar is quickly filling up with holiday parties and events, which begs the infamous question, "What will I wear?". While I love getting dressed up, not all seasonal soirees require glitz and glam, so for the occasions where less is more, I'm reaching for this season's need-now tone... blush.
To me, there are few looks more timeless than a chic monochromatic outfit, and while I typically reach for shades of cream or black, I decided to mix things up with a little color. Like most outfits, this look was inspired by a key piece which I currently can't get enough of. I have a weak spot for jackets, so when I caught a glimpse of this one while recently browsing in Anthropology, I couldn't resist! A classic pointed collar and of-the-moment plaid make for effortless style, dressed either up or down. I chose to pair it with a blush peplum tank and pleated pants for a night out over my Thanksgiving trip in Florida, and it's one of my favorite looks of recent.
The best thing about this feminine color is that it proves to be a year-round neutral! Plus, not only does it transition from season to season, it also can take you from day to night - making it a great go-to for your busy December! While my jacket will definitely be in heavy rotation, I also have my eyes on this, this and this, all in the same blush color and all ready to make a party appearance. Happy Holidays!
