I'm Blushing...

 It's no secret that pastels are one of the season's hottest trends. While we tend to gravitate towards darker colors in the cooler months, this year's color palette for fall/winter focuses on delicate hues of powder blue, baby pink, mint green and lilac. 

One of my favorite things about this trend is that these pale colors soften the heavy fabrics and textures typically reserved for fall and winter. For example, the dusty rose color of this vest removes the harsh tone associated with the traditional black faux fur vest and adds an overall sense of femininity. In addition, pairing these heavy fabrics and textures with pale colors creates an interesting contrast as the soft and delicate nature of the pastels offsets their heavy edge. 

While there are so many ways to style this dusty rose faux fur vest, for today's look I decided to pair it with a feminine blouse made up of darker hues from the same color family. And, to offset the girlie nature of the blouse and vest, I decided on distressed denim and black studded pumps. What do y'all think of this look... how would you style this vest?

Thank y'all so much for stopping by. May your day be as beautiful as you are!
