Yesterday as I was looking through my calendar I realized that this Saturday marks the one-year birthday of Dressed for My Day. Yay!!! So you can expect a celebration post on Saturday, complete with party favors, a drawing for a give-away and cake!! Meanwhile, today I’m posting one of my favorite spring outfits – my blush pink chinos topped with classics. Yes, this is definitely what I’m wearing to the Birthday Party!!
Y’all, this is my spring uniform. I love showing you so many different styles, and I do wear many of them. But this is where I live. You can’t beat these soft chinos for comfort. And everything else here is down to earth but oh so classic, too.
I’m absolutely crushing on soft pink or blush this spring. #colorcrush But I have decided that there’s a right way to wear it and a wrong way.
Do wear blush pink on one piece of clothing only within an outfit.
Don’t pair it with only baby blue. That pairing, without any other colors to ground it, just looks too cliche.
Do wear it with a darker color like navy, black or maybe olive green.
Do pair it with denim.
Do add touches of white or off white for balance.
Do wear blush pink in your accessories, like a belt, handbag, sneakers or sandals, if you’d prefer.
I love the blush pink chinos with the denim jacket, but even when I remove the jacket I have a balanced and beautiful look with this classic navy and white tee. And this tee, which also comes in yellow and white, is a real bargain, less than $10 as I’m writing this post.
If you use the styling analogy of the movie cast I explained in this post, the blush pink chinos are definitely the star of this show. But a strong supporting cast of real classics is what keeps the pink pants from over-performing.
These chinos also come in plus sizes, but not in the blush pink.
By the way, these Supergas run a tad large, so you might want to size down 1/2 size. I’m wearing my normal size, but they’re definitely roomy.
Last I checked, it appeared that there is only one left of my small navy bucket bag. I’m loving it. But the next size up is only $10 more. And it’s more of a true bucket bag. Oh, and it even comes in a beautiful blush pink! Truly gorgeous.
My earrings are by Brighton, but the rest of my jewelry is James Avery. I felt like this outfit called for stout sterling silver pieces to add to the classic feel. Here is a similar cuff bracelet, a similar necklace pendant and the ring I’m wearing.
You’ll see me wearing other blush pink pieces here on Dressed for My Day this spring. And each time you’ll see that I “ground them” with either classic pieces or denim. And I guess denim is really classic, too.
What about you? Do you love the new blush pink? Are you planning to wear it in jeans, chinos, a jacket or maybe a trench coat like mine? Or maybe you’d prefer to try this trending color in a beautiful blush pink handbag or shoes. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Blessed for My Day
Today may you be blessed with the sweet assurance that God is faithful. Even when we are fickle, He is faithful. When we are forgetful, He is faithful. And when we just don’t feel up to it, still He is faithful.
Because God is faithful we can walk into this day with confidence. We do not have to fear the unknown or fret over the unseen. God will keep His promises, He is with us and He is at work. Consider your present worries and concerns. How do they fade in the light of God’s faithfulness?
Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations. ~ Deuteronomy 7:9
