OUTFIT OF THE WEEK: BLUSH HOUR

By Jesse L. Brooks

 

This week we are in the mood for a little pink and a lot of sunshine. With spring looks already being previewed in the fashion world, we couldn't help but get our minds on warmer days. This newest ensemble focuses on looking crisp, clean and casual-chic. Starting off with a top you can easily dress up or down. For us, it's all about making it a bit more laid back and daytime friendly. Inspired by menswear shirting, yet still so feminine, this Alexis Mabille top is made from blush satin and has a supportive and flattering corset bodice. The two sleeves tied neatly in the front are punctuated with sparkling crystals and the faux pearl buttons give it a lustrous finish.Nothing makes an outfit more relaxed than a great pair of jeans. Since the shirt cold easily lean on the dressy side, denim helps make it a bit more approachable. GRLFRND's 'Karolina' jeans have that hard-to-find fit that looks skinny but not sprayed on. Made from denim that won't lose its shape, this high-rise pair is subtly feathered and distressed to appear worn-in. Footwear can change the entire climate of an outfit, so to keep up with our daytime glam vibe, we needed shoes that will catch the eye without stealing the show. Aquazzura's 'Eden' sandals are draped with teardrop and round crystals at the heel that glimmer even in low light. This glamorous pair has been crafted in Italy from smooth blush suede and finished with slender crossover straps and ankle ties. For our bag, we wanted something cute and compact. Loewe's Hammock Small tote is made from smooth calf leather. Its multi-carry design can be folded and unzipped to create a compressed tote, trapeze shape or boxy shoulder bag style, held in hand or carried crossbody, depending on your mood. Since this ensemble is craving sun, a stylish pair of sunglasses are a must. This cat-eyed pair by Givenchy feature gradient blush lenses and just happen to be 49% off! Finishing things off with a splash of beauty, for a healthy glow, we brought in a surge of color to our cheeks. Charlotte Tilbury's Swish & Pop blush formula is your no fuss shortcut to a naturally radiant complexion. Color rich pigments are finely milled for a smooth and silky finish that promises to deliver "the flush of first love every day!" Whether you're on the go for business appointments or just out shopping on the weekend, your 'Blush Hour' look is guaranteed to stop traffic.
