Blush Leather for Spring

Hello friends! We just had a beautiful weekend of weather here in Seattle and I couldn’t be more excited! It really feels like spring, at last. After such a long and rainy winter I am so happy to peel back some layers and brighten up my wardrobe.

One of my long time favorites for this transitional weather is this blush, leather jacket from Banana Republic. I got this particular one back in 2015, (similar one here), and I instantly fell in love with the soft feminine color, which perfectly contrasts with the moto style of the jacket’s construction.

On this particularly lovely day I spent some time at the beautiful cherry blossoms at the University of Washington. I had never gone to see them before, but they are so spectacular and a must-see for any Seattle-ite.

When I first bought this jacket I loved pairing blush pink with olive tones. For me the army green of an olive tone was the perfectly masculine complement to a soft, rosy blush. But this past year I have updated my color combination choice, and now I like staying in the same color family, so I’ve been pairing blush tones with burgundy. Something about this feels really fresh to me and complementary.

I traded out my army green jeans for some burgundy wedges. I got these cute sandals in last year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale, you can find them here!

What are some of your favorite spring pieces to wear each year? I love investing in good staples and then styling them in a whole new way. You get so much more wear out of them and they feel like a new piece!

Hope you’re having a beautiful week loves, and stay tuned because I am heading home to New Jersey this weekend to kick off my wedding week! I cannot wait to share so much of it with you! I will be blogging a lot about my Indian wedding, but I would also like to take everything I’ve learned during planning and create some helpful guides for other brides out there, both Indian or western brides. A friend also gave me the great idea of sharing tips for guests going to an Indian wedding too! So I’ll be working on those coming up!
