I was wandering through Marks & Spencer in Milton Keynes a few weeks ago and a blush scarf caught my eye, I wasn't looking for it, it wasn't in the scarf section, it was on an outfit and I didn't even think about it, I just grabbed it and paid!
And so blush has become my spring colour. I am just slowly dipping my toe into spring and letting go of the darker shades of winter. Armed with my blush scarf I then spotted some gorgeous blush and rose gold pumps on the sales assistants in Mint Velvet, Marlow. I didn't have time to stop and ask about them so when I got home I messaged Gaby who is on Instagram and she gave me the details (only available online).
And so my blush accessories are building. It goes really well with rose gold, with navy or black or grey and is a colour that works well on me.
Here are a few ideas if you fancy introducing blush into your wardrobe (or Mint Velvet call it nude)!

Blush is going to look absolutely gorgeous with grey and perfect for updating our wardrobes coming into the milder weather. Below are a few outfits I have been wearing recently:
So that's my current crush and what I am wearing now. Have you noticed that we get one day rain then one day sun and the pattern just keeps alternating! It is however mild enough not to need a heavy coat every day.
