You’ve probably heard me say it before, blush is the new neutral, and I’m excited to partner with Ann Taylor to style this color of the moment. I’m sure Pantone’s color of the year choice, rose quartz, has certainly influenced the infiltration of the shade, but I think it’s here to stay. The new blush is muted, flattering and sophisticated. Pink is all grown up and it’s taking the fashion scene by storm. I recently styled this blouse and this silk tee both in neutral pinks from Ann Taylor. Their blouse game is strong this season with tons of romantic options for fall. Can we talk about this duster coat? Whether you style it with denim or a lace dress it’s a gorgeous outerwear option that makes any outfit look sophisticated. Another silhouette I’m a fan of for fall is the bell sleeve blouse. This one has a feminine 70s vibe that’s appropriate for work or weekend.



Thank you to Ann Taylor for partnering with me on this post.

    I really like this color! I am trying to find neutrals that work on cool toned skin. I think you are warmer and this color is beautiful on you.

      Thank you so much. Yes I am definitely warmer/more yellow skin tone. I think cool grays and crisp whites typically look good on cooler skin tones. I think you can get away with frosty pinks and lighter blues too, I would say avoid too red, orange or yellow.
