Blush Pink Trench Coat for Fall

Right in the middle of summer, while planning our trip to Italy, I envisioned myself wearing a blush pink trench coat while roaming the streets of Florence. Luckily, I found the perfect one, and will be styling it through fall and even next spring. The thing about trench coats is they remind of you rain, which I personally don’t enjoy. But when it comes in a pretty dusty pink shade, you can change your perception of it and associate it more with cherry blossoms. I figured trench coats are meant to be worn on-the-go, which is why I paired it with my favorite distressed Denim from American Eagle.

It’s a real thing to be in love with coffee, and I am guilty as charged. Coffee for me isn’t always about functioning and a necessity for caffeine, I mostly just love the taste. I found photos of The Brass Cafe at The Beach Mall in JBR on instagram, and Natelee and I ended up doing an impromptu photoshoot there. The warm tones of gold and oak wood really brought of the color of my Blush Pink Trench Coat beautifully, and I couldn’t have picked a better location for this outfit. How do you feel about trench coats this fall?

You can shop my look below. My Blush pink trench coat is out of stock, but I have linked similar items to anything that is unavailable. My fake tattoo is from Conscious Ink and it says, ‘Perfectly Imperfect’, which is a sentiment I’m wholeheartedly embracing right now.

Red Skater Dress

Millie Mackintosh is a total babe and her Asos collection is absolutely gorgeous, with this red skater dress obviously being one of my favorite pieces. Off the shoulder? Check. Strawberry red shade? Check. Flattering skater form? Check. Red’s not an everyday color, but with the soft off shoulder straps and flouncy skirt this red skater dress can be styled so many ways. Wear it casually with flat sandals or your favorite wedges, and dress it up at night with strappy heels and a cheeky clutch. I can’t tell you enough how beautifully this dress fits, with the softest fabric and just the right amount of structure.

If you haven’t checked out the Millie Mackintosh Asos Collection yet, you need to head there now and have a look. This red skater dress is currently on sale and comes in 2 colors. My biggest worry with online shopping is if the piece is actually true to size and whether it’ll flatter my body type. After seeing the quality and comfort of this dress, I’m pretty confident I’ll love other pieces from the collection. Will you be wearing red this summer? I’d love to know how you would style this red skater dress.

Little White Box Pleated Skirt

White is certainly my go-to color, and I just love how this box pleated skirt fits me. The ways to style a skirt like this are endless, and the circle shape is so playful and sweet. The reason a box pleated skirt works so well is the defined waistline and the soft pleating which give the outfit an easy and feminine feel.

A white skirt is a great summer staple that could be styled with flats or heels, bold prints, colorful tops or a bright white-on-white ensemble. You can choose between a mini or midi skirt – or even have one of each  – depending on which is more comfortable and works best for your body type. Caged heels will add a nice edge to a girly outfit, and combined with a skater mini skirt make your legs appear super long and slim. I completed this look with a pair of bold sunglasses which are one of my most favorite summer pieces.

Box Pleated SkirtWhite Asos Prom Skirt Box Pleated SkirtMy hair’s been growing out pretty quickly, and although I’m used to my blunt long bob I have been tempted by all the pictures of gorgeous summer mermaid hair I see all the time. I’m not sure if you’ll agree but I always find different hair lengths and style suited to different outfits. Since summer clothes consist of a lot of maxi co-ord sets, tropical playsuits and cute mini skirts I might leave my hair in this land of in-between for now so I can have more style options available to me. What do you think, long or short?

Off the Shoulder Top

The heat has officially become unbearable these days, and so I’m provisioning my wardrobe with a bunch of lightweight off the shoulder tops and dresses. Blush pink is so obviously my favorite color, but I don’t actually wear it as often as you would think mainly because I prefer to have a tan when I wear it. I would usually pair this off the shoulder tiered top with white jeans and a full neutral palette, but I wanted to go with a black and pink combo this time. The ruffle on this top gives it an oversized effect which I balanced with skinny jeans and strappy sandals. What I love most about this off the shoulder trend is it looks good on everyone and is quite slimming as well. This style is flirty and cute, so it makes an immediate statement.

Asos topAsos blush pink topoff shoulder pink topI’ve been making it a point to be more intentional with every piece I invest in, and assessing how often I would actually wear something. Ever since I committed to doing that, I’ve been wearing more of my clothes and getting more creative with styling them over and over again. My motto has always been quality over quantity, but I’m putting my money where my mouth is and trying to create a wardrobe I’m confident in and a style that is comfortable and timeless. Have you been going through some style changes, and what’s your mantra these days?

Baroque Tea Dress

Chi Chi London has the prettiest clothes and this baroque dress comes in so many beautiful colors. I couldn’t commit to one of their tea dresses until I saw this sky blue and gold combo. It would seem appropriate because of my dark hair that I would relate the most with Princess Jasmine or maybe even Snow White, but the truth is as a little a girl I’d always dreamt of being Cinderella. She is kind, forgiving and completely selfless. Although a so many people think her character is passive and a little subdued, I find her immensely brave and strong. To be good in a world filled with hate and negativity is beyond courageous in my eyes, and for that I’ll always think she’s a wonderful role model to young girls. So, here I am finally having my Cinderella moment after all these years – but in my own way of course.

Baroque DressChi Chi LondonBaroque Dress

The bodice is padded and there are quite a few layers of tulle underneath the skirt that make it a little bulky and heavy, so I would recommend removing a layer or two for a more comfortable fit. The baroque dress has such beautiful intricate detailing and the fabric is really good quality, which makes it a great choice for a wedding, prom or gala. You can simply pair a tea dress with gold sandals or nude pumps and chandelier earrings. Since the lace really speaks for itself  and the neck is high, you can keep the accessorizing to a minimum. I’d love to hear what you think of this baroque dress and if you would wear this style. Who’s your favorite disney princess?

Logic of Love

I’m not one to take Valentine’s Day too seriously and my husband and I rarely make a thing of it, but this year I took it as an opportunity to slip into a pretty blush dress and do a photoshoot alongside my dapper hubby. We got so lucky with this beautiful pink sunset and a nice breeze and I fell in love with how natural the pictures turned out. We often take our loved one for granted especially when you’ve been together for so long (it’s been 13 years for us and you can read about our love story), but for me that means a great deal of trust because you’re wholeheartedly giving your soul to someone believing they will cherish it forever. The only logic of love is that it has no logic or explanation, it just comes like a streak of wind and sweeps you off your feet. Once your toes find the sand again, you’re hopefully left with a companion who adores your imperfections, wants you to fulfill your dreams and puts a smile on your face.

Pink Pleated Skirt

As you may already know, I’m huge fan of unexpected outfits that aren’t constrained by seasonal trends or what everyone’s usually wearing, so I had to find a way to style my favorite pink pleated skirt this fall. Navy and Pink is one of my all time favorite combinations, because it’s the perfect balance between girly and chic. I opted for a fitted sweater to give me a lady-like silhouette, and accessorized with heels and a lace clutch to make it look more dressy. You can always wear a loose cropped sweater and booties for a more boho look.

I know I’ve been gone a while, but I’m back and I have a lot of fun things I’ll be sharing with you. Last week was pretty hectic and difficult, so I needed time to recoup and focus on my health and well being. With that said, the work never stops and I’m constantly working on new content and improving The Blush Diaries for you all.

Bardot Dress

rania flowers-30How many pretty dresses are really enough? I’ve learned that you can never have too many. I’m always in search of a feminine fitting dress in a new color I don’t already have (or one I have too much of) as well as dresses for different occasions. This off-shoulder Bardot dress from Asos is perfect for spring/summer showers, weddings or day-time events. What’s the one piece of clothing you always love to wear?

Spring Fling

It’s officially Spring, and that means it’s time to bring out the midi skirts. Personally, I’m about ready to buy one in each color. They’re so versatile, can be dressed up or down and are really flattering on pretty much anyone. Whether you prefer to wear them with flats or heels, they are easy to style. I stacked dainty jewels and carried my new favorite pink bag, because I love a day-time look. I chose to wear these nude wedges to keep the look casual and breezy. Are you in love with midi skirts too?
