First and foremost, welcome to Fleur de Linds. This is my own personal “blogazine”—an editorial landscape with many elements of a traditional online magazine, told through my voice. These are really my looks, my beauty tips, my lifestyle recommendations (and yeah, those really were all of my donuts); everything on this site is near and dear to my heart, and a personal reflection of my life. You can read a little more about me here, but for now, let’s talk fashion.
It goes without saying that I have a
big ginormous soft spot for blush right now. As an off-shade of Pantone’s rose quartz co-color of the year and a traditional spring color, this feminine tint was practically guaranteed the slot as this season’s biggest shade from the very beginning. But truthfully, this flushed color is a longtime favorite of mine, and I’d been dying to put together a look that really showcased it. So, voila!
When picking out pieces for this outfit, I had two style elements on my mind: I want to mix and match colors from the same family, and I wanted to incorporate texture. And it was the skirt I found first—a pleated, pleather Topshop number with just the right tint of pink and an overall show-stopping appeal. While it may seem like something you’ve seen before, trust me, it’s not. It’s got a flawless cut and fit, and is one of those pieces of clothing that instantly make you feel worth a million bucks more. And really, just look at it—it’s just a romantic, dreamy stunner.
To offset the pale pink bottom, I opted for a light-as-air lace Free People top. Funny enough, it’s actually a “brami,” or half bra, half cami. But considering it looks more like a sophisticated tank than something Madonna might’ve worn in an ’80s music video, I’d say its safe to add to your wardrobe rotation.
Not to over do it on the accessories front, I picked up two specific pieces to tie this look together. And as a sucker for a statement necklace, this mixed-material number with an oversized amber pendant was the only thing for the job. And as for my kicks, well, these strappy cognac Chinese Laundry sandals have a part of my shoe collection for quite some time now, and I thought they deserved a spin around the block with this chic look.
I’ll just go ahead and state it plainly: this is one of my favorites looks ever. Truly, it is. I’m just crossing my fingers that blush doesn’t soon go out of style, because I’ll be hard pressed to put away anything from this look anytime soon.
