Hey guys, I finally found something to wear in Blush that actually looks good on me! Last year this color was one of Pantone's colors of the year (except they called it Rose Quartz). I fell in love with this color but couldn't find it anywhere in the stores. Fast forward a year later, and this color is everywhere in stores! When I see this color I am instantly drawn to it. I grab the item, take it to the dressing room, try it on, and then go 'Bleh!'. I love this color on the clothing rack but hate it on my body. I then thought "Well maybe I need to try it away from face; like a pair of blush jeans or a skirt". But I couldn't find a style I liked. Then when I was at JCPenney a few weeks ago (where else?) and I found this cardigan! Oh, it was so pretty on the hanger, but would it just be another failure in the dressing room?
With great anticipation I tried it on over my white tank and wow! I was ecstatic! I finally found an item in the blush color that worked for me! Time for the happy dance!
I believe this color finally worked for me because it's a cardigan and so whatever I wear underneath is what is directly under my face. I've always looked good in white, so the white tank worked well with my skin tone.
The sweater has a very nice interesting design in it as well.
Because I have a large bust, I have always struggled wearing tank tops. They tend to pull down on me and expose my cleavage. I recently found these amazing Lace Front Layering Tanks at CJBanks. They have a lace panel on the top and lace shoulder straps. CJBanks also sells a plain style that I love as well. They are made of a nice nylon and spandex material. The tanks go up higher (so no cleavage, yea!), and they fit very well in the bust but looser in the tummy area so it's not clingy in all the wrong places. I have never been so happy with any tank in my life and I will never buy any other tank again except for these. I love them so much that I bought about ten more in all different colors (I bought all the colors that were on sale; some were as low as $6.99!). They are perfect for layering under shirts and cardigans.
I picked up this pretty shell necklace at Charming Charlie's.
And here are those Steve Madden Shoes again! Like I said, expect to see a lot of these as I love them and plan on wearing them all summer!
I carried a metallic silver cross body bag and wore a white beaded bracelet (both old)
The color of my cardigan is Rose Smoke. For size reference, I'm wearing a Medium. It's still available HERE and in other colors. I almost bought the white one too!
My jeans are also from JCP. They are Liz Claiborne City-Fit Boyfriend Skinny Jeans.
