Yesterday, my delightful colleague, Kelsey, wore a fabulous blush blazer to work. I happened to be wearing a blush dress. As we joked about getting the "pink" memo and confided how we hope blush continues to be on trend in the business professional wardrobe for many more seasons, she kindly let me take a picture of her awesome outfit to share with you.
Doesn't she look fantastic and professional! Her lovely lace skirt and blouse are from Ann Taylor. I first started seeing lace skirts last fall, but this was the first time I had seen someone wearing one in a business setting, and it is lovely. When they first came out I was concerned that lace might be too feminine for a business setting, but after seeing Kelsey's outfit, I realized how wrong I was. She looked beautiful and feminine but completely professional at the same time. Nailed it!
She perfectly paired the neutral lace skirt with nude shoes and a blush blazer. She purchased her blazer at TJMaxx. I love shawl collars on blazers, and they can be hard to find. I've been on the hunt for a blush blazer like this for some time, but still haven't found a keeper yet. I do have a blush skirt, though. I might barrow Kelsey's color pallet, but switch the skirt and blazer. I could combine my blush skirt with a white blouse and a neutral blazer...stay tuned!
My blush pink outfit was this Tahari dress that my Trunk Club stylist sent me (previously worn without blazer). I paired it with a navy blazer with a stand up collar and ruffled lapel from White House Black Market. I could have worn my nude heels like Kelsey, but chose my Ivanka Trump blush pink heels instead.
