I can’t remember the last time I was this obsessed with a certain color: blush. It emerged last year as a “trendy” color and this season I’m seeing it everywhere. My collection of blush pieces started last summer when I picked up this Topshop duster coat and practically lived in it for weeks. Then over winter break I picked up the Loeffler Randall block heels because I didn’t have any other shoe like it. AND THEN during this month’s shopbop sale, I picked up these Jeffrey Campbell loafers (similar here), which they classified as mauve but really, it looks like blush to me.

I’ve refrained from picking up a blush bomber jacket and a blush sweater, but then: I saw these Nike sneakers. I’ve been wanting to get some new sneakers because the only ones I currently have are my running shoes. I wanted a pair of more stylish sneakers that I can wear casually throughout the week. I’m planning to wear them with not just jeans, but also with midi skirts and a few dresses.

In the past I’ve stayed away from wearing pink items – and I still for the most part do – but the blush for some reason doesn’t make me feel like a little girl wearing pink. I intentionally steer clear of bright pink items because first of all, it’s so not my personality AND it makes me look even younger than I already look. The blush on the other hand can look elegant, sophisticated, romantic and girly – without the “she’s still in high school” look.

In honor of my current favorite color , I’ve rounded up several blush pieces that have caught my eye. Really, in hopes that I don’t purchase everything but still feel like I kind of did. Fake online shopping is the BEST. Do you have a color that you’re swooning over at the moment? Please do tell in the comments!
