They say that taking a look in your closet can help you see which colors you gravitate towards when choosing things like your wedding palette or color scheme for your home. The first time I wore this outfit, I was surprised by how much pastel I was wearing at once. Then, when I shot these photos with Chelsea, I happened to have my favorite kitten tumbler with me, and couldn’t help but notice how perfectly it matched. Turns out Pantone was right; Rose Quartz really is the color of 2016!

I was going to write that I couldn’t even tell you how long I’ve been searching for a blush blazer, but that would be a lie. I know exactly how long. Because I am an excellent Internet sleuth. And also because fashion bloggers have a literal record of the outfits they’ve worn that I can search through. You know, one of those things. Anyway, in June of 2015, Adina introduced a blush blazer from Topshop to her closet. When it first debuted on her blog in this outfit, I was intrigued. However, this July 2015 outfit skyrocketed the blush blazer to the top of my shopping list. As a style blogger, I think we sometimes worry that we’re not as useful as we set out to be, but I think this is strong justification that I should keep posting pics of myself on the Internet.

After almost exactly a year (to the week!) of searching, I found a fabulous blush blazer. I hesitate to say perfect because, while there are a lot of things I love, it doesn’t fulfill every intended purpose. For instance, it has the shawl collar we know I love, but it’s a little more oversized than I was hoping. I anticipate that I’ll wear it a ton with jeans in the fall/winter, but it’s quite a bit overwhelming with skirts and dresses. Since I found it on Poshmark, there obviously weren’t a range of sizes available, otherwise I would have probably gone with a medium instead of large. Maybe I’ll keep an eye out, just in case the actual-perfect blush blazer is still out there waiting for me.
