OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: BLUSH AND BLUE

 

You are probably used to seeing 'black and blue' paired together, but this week's outfit is all about making you 'blush'. We're always looking for new ways to dress up our everyday denim and going the ultra feminine route is one we love. Using soft shades of pink and beige can give an elegant, almost ballerina effect to your wardrobe, even when wearing blue jeans. We started off this week's ensemble with a pair of Saint Laurent high-rise straight leg jeans. Inspired by classic '80s styles, Saint Laurent's jeans are perfect if you love your denim to have an authentic, non-stretch finish. Next, we started bringing in our pretty neutral tones. To achieve the ultimate svelte silhouette, Vionnet's Asteroid Tulle One Shoulder Bodysuit was an obvious choice. We love the use of delicate pleated tulle as an ode to the brand's French heritage. For a little light layering and to lend a transitional hint of wintery texture, Raey's nude-pink short coat is a must have. It is meticulously crafted in the UK with sumptuous texture with a V-neck and concealed fastening. Giving our soft muted look a touch of sparkle, Aquazzura's suede d'Orsay sandal with dangling crystals are the very definition of dreamy. With a self-tie front closure, looped caged opening, and 4 inch covered heels, these beauties are true show-stoppers. Moving on to accessories and keeping it classic and glamorous, every fashionista loves a good staple bag. The YSL Monogram Kate Small Chain Bag is just that. The dusty pink design is made with caviar grained leather and can easily be worn from casual to dressy. We decided to go for more of a daytime vibe (but never fear; you could totally wear this out at night as well) by adding nude and brown acetate sunglasses from Andy Wolf Eyewear. The pretty pair features cat eye frames, a tortoiseshell effect, cut out details and tinted lenses. Keeping our beauty routine on the lighter side is a must have nude lip. Maybelline's Color Sensational Buff Collection is one of the best in the drugstore cosmetics game. The color 'Blushing Beige' is a cult favorite among makeup lovers and perfectly complements our chic look. Whether you're going to a daytime work function or heading out for cocktails and a show, you are sure to have everyone seeing 'Blush and Blue' wherever you go.
