Hello everyone, welcome back!  Do any of you have any exciting plans for the weekend?? Michaela and I are heading to New York again for some beach and family time, so make sure to follow along on Instagram and Snapchat (@chummer17).

I love pairing together colors close on the color wheel, and blush and red are no exception.

Navy and White

img_9711img_9715

When I first wore this blouse I mentioned that I couldn’t wait to wear it with white jeans.  Well, true to my word, I really couldn’t wait to shoot this nautical combination, even if it is a tad early.  I also wanted to make sure I showed you all how the blouse paired with pants while it was still in stock!  I chose to slip on these blush flats I have been loving, but if I waited until Memorial Day I would probably pair it with some navy espadrilles and a red crossbody bag.

Blush Pleats

IMG_0367IMG_0336IMG_0357

This striped shirt from French Connection is about three years old, and yet I cannot seem to stop wearing it this spring.  I love when I have the chance to re-fall in love with some of my favorite pieces after years of wear.  Stripes are always in fashion and I guess the navy and white combo has been really fitting in to my new repertoire of pinks and patterns alike this season.

We took these pictures outside of the beautiful (and recently renovated) Beverly Public Library.  Libraries are definitely one of my happy places, and reading is one of my fundamental core values.  Anytime I travel, the local library is always at the top of my “To See” list (including the Library of Congress, Huntington Library, and Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam).  Seeing libraries receive the proper architectural attention that they deserve just makes my heart sing.

Blush & Olive

Today’s outfit features my two must have colors for spring: blush and olive!  I’m always trying to find just the right balance in my outfits, and the femininity of the blush perfectly offsets the olive green!

I’ve been walking around D.C. this week and desperately hoping that the sunshine will tan up my winter white legs a bit.  The weather has been nothing short of amazing and has completely enhanced my experience.  Everything in the tourist areas is so beautiful and aesthetically pleasing it’s a blogger/photographer’s dream!  Make sure to follow along on Instagram!

Fall In Love

IMG_8335 IMG_8326

One of my favorite color combinations for fall is blush and burgundy.  I love the romantic vibe they give off together and the way the blush can lighten up a dark and bold autumn color like burgundy and give it a fresh feminine twist.  I try to avoid matching my shoes and my bag too frequently, since it seems safe and predictable, but I love the way the brown in my accessories anchors the whole outfit in the current season.

The New Neutral

IMG_4100 IMG_4102

As I mentioned in Tuesday’s post, I’m totally obsessing over pink this spring.  Some of my favorite pink finds this spring have been these shoes and this bag, because of their soft and versatile blush tone.  Blush is the perfect new neutral, because it goes with absolutely everything.  It can tone an outfit down or add a feminine touch of color like it does here.

Uniform

I love putting thought and care into my outfits, down to the very last detail.  But there are certain days when the creativity just isn’t flowing for me, or I’m running late, or everything is either dirty or wrinkled.  On those unfortunate days, I always reach for the same reliable outfit and makeup routine.  A pair of boots, skinny jeans, a soft sweater, and a collared shirt never fail me.  I love this blush, camel, and black combination; but I also do this combination with shades of blue frequently.
