A Blush Crush: Valentine’s Day Style

Pale pink, blush, baby pink, rose… whatever you want to call it, I am majorly crushing on this color lately. Blush is a perfect color for a Valentine’s Day look as well. Here are a few crush-worthy blush pieces that are particularly fun for the holiday, whether you are staying in or going out.

ModCloth Button-Up Top in Puff, $50

NYJD Ami Release Hem Stretch Skinny Jeans, $114

Halogen Tie Neck Sleeveless Blouse, $59

Lush Split Neck Shift Dress, $46

525 America Off-Shoulder Sweater, $96

ModCloth Pleats as Punch A-Line Skirt, $50

NYDJ Henley Blouse, $88

I personally love pairing blush with blush are army or olive green and grey. For example, the Modcloth skirt above would look great with a light grey and white striped shirt. The 525 America sweater would also look chic with grey or olive jeans and pumps. Olive green and grey tend to be more unexpected than your navy or black palettes, but blush on blush is also a hot trend. If you want to keep your whole look neutral, you could pair the ModCloth blouse with the NYDJ jeans.

Do you have any favorite clothes in blush that you are loving? Are you doing anything special for Valentine’s Day?

I prefer to stay in on the day of Valentine’s Day and keep things low key. Restaurants tend to get a little to crazy for me, going out a couple days before or after the holiday is a nice way to spice things up. This year, Will and I will celebrate a little early since I have a surprise planned for him! Let me know what you have planned.

Cheers!

What I’m Wearing: Winter Edition

Hi friends!

Thank goodness it is Friday!! I’ve had a long (but very good) week and I am ready to relax this weekend. Since we’re in the middle of winter, I have realized there are certain items in my closet that have been repeated a lot lately. I just love them so much! It often surprises me what pieces I get the most use out of, so hopefully this list of the top things I’m wearing this winter is helpful for you.

  1.  London Fog Hooded Wool Parka, $80 on sale
    • This blue coat was a Christmas gift and I am obsessed with the color. It is super warm and a little roomy. The detail at the waist is also quite flattering.
  2. J.Crew V-Neck Wool Sweater, $60
    • It’s the kind of sweater that makes you look polished. The fit is perfect, not too baggy and slimming. It’s versatile as well; perfect for the weekend or work.
  3. Kork-Ease ‘Castaneda’ boot, on sale for $133
    • These are my go-to winter booties with a heel because of how comfortable they are. The rubber sole also has good tread if it is icy.
  4. Cotton Emporium Marled Open Knit Cardigan, $49
    • I mentioned my love of this sweater in a previous post, and since then my love for it has only grown. It is seriously like wearing a blanket–so cozy!
  5. BP Scoop Neck Long Sleeve Tee, $18
    • I’ve been layering this basic tee with all kinds of different outfits. The cotton is super soft too.
  6. Rag & Bone Olive Skinny Jeans, $198; (similar here for $114)
    • I love Rag & Bone Jeans, as you probably know, but the reason I’m wearing these on repeat right now is the color. I’m obsessed with olive this season, but especially pants.
  7. J.Crew Factory Donegal Turtleneck Sweater, $40 (similar here)
    • Turtlenecks are in right now, and I really love how this one has specks of other colors within the grey wool and the oversized collar.
  8. Steve Madden Austin bootie, $100
    • The pointed toe on these booties gives them a unique and western vibe. I thought I’d wear them more in the fall and spring, but they look awesome with jeans and dark wool socks on. Just beware, they run small and narrow. I’m usually a size 7.5 or 8 or 7.5, and I needed these in a size 8.5.

Above are some recent looks I have been wearing. As you can see, another thing I have been wearing a lot lately is my plaid Mod Cloth blanket scarf that I got for Christmas. They are unfortunately sold out, but I did find a new one on Poshmark, if you are in the market for one.

If you have anything in your closet you can’t get enough of this winter, I’d love to hear what it is and why you are enjoying it.

Cheers to a fabulous weekend!

Fashion Favorite: Sorel Boots

Sorel Boots - Winter Snow Boots - Fashion Favorite - SC's Scoop

Hi friends! How was your weekend?  Martin Luther King Jr. Day gave me a three day weekend, which was definitely a treat. And while I’m glad the weather wasn’t unbearably cold, I’m also crossing my fingers that we get a big snow before winter is over. I’d love a good excuse to trek my favorite winter boots through the snow! I got my favorite boots two Christmases ago and have only fallen more in love with them over time. That’s the sign of a solid purchase, right?! My Sorel boots are the Tivoli style. The shaft and top of the boot is a tan suede, while the soles and laces are black. I have found this color combo goes with a lot, and it looks especially nice with blue jeans.

The best news is that these boots go on sale often! Below are some additional styles from Sorel, if you want a boot with a slightly different look or color.

These boots have held up really well in the snow, and the tread on them is excellent. I don’t have to worry about slipping when I walk on ice. I wore them last winter throughout a crazy blizzard (pictures below), and my feet stayed warm and dry throughout several long walks in the snow. One recommendation for sizing – these boots tend to run on the small side. So, I would definitely order a half-size up or even a whole size up if you would like them to be comfortable with thick socks on.

Do you have a favorite pair of winter boots that helped you survive a snow storm? Do you love wearing Sorel boots in the wintertime? I would love to hear all about your favorite snow boots.

Cheers to a great week!
