The Next Thing You Need | Blush Jeans

In the market for some more colored denim for fall?  Well, I just found your new must-have color.  While pink clay is the official name of the color of these jeans,  I prefer blush or dusty rose.

In all honesty, when I first tried on these jeans at Loft, I loved the fit but just wasn’t sure about the color.  When I buy an item, I have to be able to picture at least three different ways to pair it up or it doesn’t come home.  I only came up with two in the fitting room but I loved the fit and cool moto zipper details, so I bought them anyway.

Once I got home and started trying them out with things in my closet, I knew I had made the right decision.  I’m amazed at just how versatile and cool these jeans look with SO many different things.  Heck, they are almost a neutral!

This week, I wore them paired up like this.

And here are some other ways I plan to wear them this fall.

Glam:  Burgundy peplum and heels

Oxblood, burgundy, whatever, looks SO of the moment when paired up with blush.  This peplum is only $34 and combines fall’s other hot trend – faux leather accents.

Comfy:  Chunky beige sweater and ankle boots

This outfit is like a warm hug on a chilly fall day.  Nothing better than a chunky sweater and some ankle boots.

Casual:  Gray striped tee with oxfords

Gray and pink were made for each other and so were stripes and classic oxfords.

Tone on tone:  Dressed up sweatshirt and ankle boots

I’m warming up to tone on tone and this dressed up sweatshirt is adorable!  I already have it in beige.

So, what are you waiting for?  Go ahead and get them now before they’re gone.  You’ll thank me later.

For reference, if you order online, mine are a size 26/2 and are very true to fit.  They have great reviews and also just so happen to be ON SALE!  If you’re not into the moto zippers, Loft also has some options in pink clay in corduroy.

    Now I want some Blush Skinny Jeans. I love that Burgundy Tunic & Shoes on the 1st outfit (similar to the shoes I wore yesterday – check them out). I also like both of those Neutral Sweaters & the Booties in the 2nd Outfit.

    Have a Great Weekend, Alison!

  • I love the color of those and they look fabulous paired with the burgundy peplum top! I never thought about a pair of blush pants before, but I really love the color and can’t believe how versatile they would be! I’ll have to keep an eye out for a pair now.

  • Love that you only buy things that go with at least three things, so smart. Have a fab weekend, so fun!

  • SO jealous of your Target Phillip Lim bag – they were SOLD OUT when I got online : (


  • ooh you have me convinced! they look fabulous! I’ll be looking for a pair next weekend when I hit the outlet malls 🙂 Between you, Shay, and Shaeffer my shopping list has definitely grown to include things I wouldn’t typically try! Have so much fun this weekend relaxing 🙂

  • I think I will have to check out this color in person
    A person with my skin tone has to be super careful with colors like this
    Love the styling though

  • I really like the styling options you creates for these jeans. I was at Loft looking at these but decided to pass since I can only wear jeans on the weekend.


  • I would love a pair of blush jeans and now you’ve got me convinced! Thanks so much for this post doll!

  • Yours look perfect with that Lim blouse!

  • I LOVE those blush moto jeans! You came up with so many great ways to wear them, too! I have a feeling I’ll be making a trip to LOFT tomorrow, especially with this big sale that’s going on. I hope you have a GREAT time on your trip this weekend!! Can’t wait to see pics and hear all about it! 🙂

  • I’m loving those shoes from Sole Society!!!!!!! All the looks are fabulous!!!!!

    Have a great weekend.

  • Love the idea of lighter colored denim in the fall/winter- great way to shake up the usual darker colors. You’ve styled these jeans perfectly! 🙂 Have a great weekend!


  • Love the pairing of blush jeans and the chunky knit cream sweater! Enjoy your weekend getaway!

  • Hi, Allison! I survived the summer!! The blush jeans is GORGEOUS! Can’t wait to catch up with your posts!

  • Love the color of those jeans…like I need something else to obsess over! Ha!

    Blush pink is one of my all time favorite colors…..and I think it’s a neutral classic on jeans,,


  • I am obsessed with blush pink! I think it’s such a chic color and really just goes with everything. I feel like you’ve basically covered all the different styling options, but since it’s 80 degrees where I live, I would probably pair these jeans with a bandeau and strappy, flowy tank with some layered jewelry. What do you think?

    Aloha from Hawaii,

  • Thank you for linking up to What I’m Loving Fridays Alison! Your outfit is so chic – love it!

  • I love those pants and how you wore them! The burgundy is really pretty with them, too!

  • I agree these arw a must-have. It’s a perfect neutral. Not khaki but not pink.

  • I love all of your looks with these pants! I got the Phillip Lim floral peplum top. So glad I saw you pair your top with these.
    Do you feel like they stretched out a lot? Several of the reviews said they did.

  • I need/want those jeans! You look amazing in them! I also have some oxbloods in mind too! Roll on payday – it can’t come quick enough! 😉 Ax
