you make me blush

Rosir de plaisir….

Pre-Fall Zara combo 1.

Love this color and print mix for the end of summer. A nice way to move into the back to school/back to work mode, while retaining the lighter mood of the summer. The pale blush still speaks of longer days and sunlight, anchored by an abstract print and darker accessories.

J’aime beaucoup de mélange de couleurs pour la fin d’été, une jolie façon de se préparer à la rentrée, tout en gardant un peu de l’humeur légère de l’été. Le rose poudre rappelle encore les jours plus longs et la lumière, juste un peu assombri par un imprimé graphique et des accessoires sombres. (Articles Zara)

And what about this sweater ? Que pensez-vous de ce pull?

Love the style but don’t want an acrylic, made in China, version? Knit your own.

  1. ooh, a gorgeous outfit idea! And I love the Karen Clements sweater design the best, it looks so flattering and yet unusual. You’re right, the blush yarn is a tough one- but I think the Loop Yarns one you posted is the most neutral looking of the blushes, and not at all pastel.
