Pink Blush Summer Love

To my dearest:

Summer has been marvelous thus far in New York City. During these hot days, my favorite shade to wear is Pink Blush. It’s just such a lovely and feminine color. While summer to me essentially embodies: sunshine yellow, tropical prints, and florals — what really captures my heart is that beautiful light shade of pink. Today, I’m here with two beautiful pink blush pieces I love and styled. All hail, “Pink Blush Summer Love”.

This beautiful peachy blush one piece dress is such a classic trendsetter. It’s got that button down shirt sexy look paired with off the shoulder and ruffles to make it even more feminine. This one runs in petite sizing and a size 2 fits me just right. The only thing I would make note of, is that the bust area is a tad too tight and the buttons tend to pop (My bust measures 34 inches). I have to add a small safety pin in order for it to not pop. I’ve tried a size 4 and 6 as well, but it looked too oversized on me and was unflattering. Hence, I kept the size 2 and just solved my problem with a safety pin. If you have a larger bust size, I’d definitely go a size up. I chose a small monogrammed LV clutch as a timeless classic piece and to add a pop to the whole outfit.

This outfit consists of a white cold shoulder top and a blush pink pleated skirt. Classic colors to mix pink blush with are monochromatic colors, such as black, white and gray. In the summer, I often times opt for white for a more refreshing look. The cold shoulder style is a major trend this season and so are pleats. What’s amazing about the skirt is the added lace details towards the hem line. Adding more than just a touch of feminine, but in fact revamping the whole outfit. The white heels with gold ankle strap is a simple style, that adds to the whole look without being too overwhelming. The sizing is regular and not petite. However, I find UK sizes run smaller, so I’m typically a wide range between 2-6 depending on the fit. The top is petite sizing, and I could’ve easily opt. for a size 2, but ordered in a size 4 and got too lazy to return it. It looks fine regardless!

I paired both outfits with a mixture of rose gold and yellow gold jewelry pieces. I love gold jewelry in general. However, I think it looks particularly beautiful against pinks. The stones I have on me are pink tourmaline and cognac diamond. Which, I think brings out the whole pink and gold scheme more. The collection of pieces are by local New York brand, KarenAsh – which offers jewelry tailored towards petites. I recently wrote an in depth review about them and the pieces I’m wearing HERE, so feel free to check it out.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous summer as well thus far. Write back and let me know what’s your favorite color or print to wear during the summer!

    I prefer to wear cool colors in Summer. Your Peach color outfit looks amazing and goes well with the sandals.

      Yes Sarah, I agree! Cool colors are beautiful in the summer!

    Light colors are definitely comfortable for hot weather. That light pink blush color is prefect for spring and summer.

    Gold is definitely the new in thing and I love your jewelry! I love that it’s simple, yet elegant and can go with any outfit. I have to admit that I’m not the biggest fan of the “off the shoulder” trend, but I love the pleated skirt!

  4. July 20, 2017 / 1:54 PM

    Pink blush is one of my very favorite colors to wear and I am really enjoying the fact that it is on trend right now and so widely available in so many ways. I’m loving the off the shoulder shirt dress you are have featured!

    • July 21, 2017 / 2:54 AM

      Thank you! I’m glad to find another avid lover of pink blush!

  5. July 20, 2017 / 2:39 PM

    great photos and description!

  6. July 20, 2017 / 3:00 PM

    The color is beautiful and you look gorgeous!

    I’m starting to like this shade but I’m plus size and lean towards darker colors because I feel less self conscious lol and I’m 4’11 maybe I’ll branch out and try this shade!

    • July 21, 2017 / 2:55 AM

      Hi Mary, thanks for dropping by! I think you can mix pink blush with black if you like a darker color combo!

    I love the outfits. I’ve always been a fan of pink blush. Your rings are lovely as well!

  10. July 20, 2017 / 7:40 PM

    I love your outfit! That dress is just way too cute. I love wearing bright colors in the summer along with some cute prints.

    • July 21, 2017 / 2:56 AM

      Thank you, Crystal! Bright colors are awesome to rock during summer times!

  11. July 20, 2017 / 9:59 PM

    Love the rings and your outfits, you looked gorgeous in all but I liked the first outfit, the color is light, bright, and soothing just perfect for summer.

    The Peachy Blush dress is super cute! I really love wearing white during Summer. It usually complements my tan (if I am out at the beach etc) Otherwise I love all the soft pastel colours.

    • July 21, 2017 / 3:00 AM

      Thank you, Chloe. White is one of my favorite colors as well!

  13. July 21, 2017 / 12:28 AM

    Looking so cute and beautiful in that pink dress.

  14. July 21, 2017 / 1:54 AM

    Pink blush really suits you in so many ways. It’s like a doll colored and I wish I could get hand on the Asos dress. However I am not so sure if it would look good on me. Pink blush is great when you have darker hair colored, I am almost blond.

    • July 21, 2017 / 3:02 AM

      Thank you for the compliment, Helene! Yes, pink blush stands out better against darker hair color. I’m sure maybe if you add in a darker color to combo pink blush, you can bring out your light colored hair!

    Pink Blush color looks are great on you! ! In love with your style statements..

    Those are my type of colours! I am very pale and actually proud of it. I don’t tan at all and love to wear blush tones or monochrome things. That skirt with lace detail is everything! Love it!

  17. July 21, 2017 / 11:34 AM

    You are so cute !! My favorite print to wear is white and blue stripes !! But my favorite color has got to white cus it makes me look so tan 🙂

  18. July 21, 2017 / 1:52 PM

    Such a pretty colour it really suits you, I’m quite pale so it doesn’t suit me unfortunately

  19. July 21, 2017 / 1:57 PM

    I love pink blush, it’s such a flattering shade on you and me. In the summer I too like to wear soft pastels.

  20. July 21, 2017 / 2:24 PM

    I love love both these looks on you. My favorite is the button up style dress. You can dress it down or up so easily. Again, fantastic looks!

  21. July 21, 2017 / 3:04 PM

    I do love your accessory choices. And I really love the pink blush that you are wearing as well. You look amazing.

  22. July 21, 2017 / 3:54 PM

    I absolutely love that color. The skirt in the second outfit is just gorgeous. You look lovely

  23. July 21, 2017 / 4:45 PM

    These are such pretty dresses. I love exposing the shoulder.

    Everything is so cute! I love how you combined girly touch of pink, with gold tones :))

  35. July 24, 2017 / 7:52 AM

    I used to shy away from pink and I am now starting to think WHY. It’s such a versatile colour. Oh, you look fabulous btw.
