I’ve been starting to notice that this ‘dusty rose’ color is popping up among retailers in their Spring reciepts. It’s a pretty color. Sort of a hybrid of blush and lavender. And probably one you can wear as subtly as you want-like on your lips, or as a statement color-like with a cool jacket or pant.
I think my personal favorite from this set is the pocket square (Reiss Winehouse-link above). You rarely see pocket squares anymore… but what a good way to add a touch of ‘dusty rose’ to a Spring ensemble.
Aren’t these blue velvet booties amazing!? I came across them while browsing Polyvore and couldn’t not use them in a set. Too bad they’re a fine chunk of change. :[ But alas, I will just swoon over them.
The other things I included are stuff I’m into right now. A pair of destroyed black denim-adds a little toughness to an outfit… a classic black leather band watch-never goes out of style… a cool white quartz ring-catches your eye! Rounded sunglasses and red lips-no fails… ombre hair (which I just had done! Finally, after wanting to for more than a year!) and a navy striped tee-so versatile!
Oh, and of course a classic quilted Chanel bag. No explanation necessary for that. ;)

As some of you may know, I’ve always loved blush…and I love it even more as it’s become a new ‘neutral’. Blush truly goes with just about every other color, like any other neutral does.
I’m also really into this crop top trend. They’re great for these hot days…but also could work as a transition from late summer to early fall, especially if you pair one with a leather swing skirt, with a blush colored blazer to throw on when it cools down. There’s a similar (not quite as pricey) swing skirt here.
P.S. This Dior lip balm is the best thing for your lips. It really moisturizes, but it turns your lips your perfect natural shade of pink because it works with your own body chemistry…pretty cool!!
