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!
For reference, I am 5 feet 2 inches. I typically wear XS/S or 0-4 for apparel and 6.5-7.5 for shoes.
