Blush & Black

In dreaming of spring, I find myself drawn to this blush/nude and black color palette. It's soft, feminine & polished, with just the slightest edge. Note when I say dreaming, as most of these items will never make their way to my closet (though in a perfect world, those lace Tibi shorts & the classic Lanvin ballet flat would already be in constant rotation in my wardrobe) but I will be on the lookout for more affordable versions as spring goes on!

02 Tibi Lace & Silk Shorts $285
03 Diane von Fursternberg Belted Silk Dress $385

    I looooove numba 1 and I'm totally drawn to number 3, oddly (not normally something I'd pick out).

  19. It's so dreamy...as in I really, really want it but can only dream of this. Maybe H&M, etc. can run with this palette for the sake of our wallets? Perfect choice, Kate. I wasn't even thinking of adding black to blush/nude but it's PERFECT!
