Sweatshirt Love

Dressed up, embellished sweatshirts have been on the scene for a little while.  This fall, they’re everywhere and I can see why.  It’s easy to love a trend that takes your favorite comfy, casual piece and makes it perfectly appropriate for just about anything.

Who knew a sweatshirt could be so chic?

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.

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.
