Let’s ignore my crappy photo set-up, and just look at how strong my blush blazer is still going. Summer wardrobe staple? I think not. I’m going to call this one an all season MVP. I was going to pair this animal print dress with my black blazer, but mentally went “ughhhh” at the thought of it. The whole thing was just too dark for my mood at the time. Sometimes when I’m stressed, I like to wear lots of black; other times, I want anything but. This was a great alternative.
As I was looking at these photos, I realized that a tan/cream blazer would probably work in much the same way, in terms of lightening up the outfit, and briefly considered whether I should be looking to add one to my closet. I have a sneaking suspicion, however, that this blush colour is more flattering to my skin tone than tan. A cream version remains intriguing, but I can’t remember the last time I saw one anywhere.
On an unrelated note, I love House of Harlow jewelry, like these pyramid earrings. A lot of their pieces have a subtle Art Deco-ish vibe, yet look modern at the same time. Looking at their display at Holt Renfrew is always dangerous, because I end up lusting after multiple pieces.
