Blushing with Shop Pink Blush & link up

December 15, 2015



Every once in awhile it feels nice to get dolled up and fancy, even if just to church. As a mom I have been living in loose jeans and leggings but love every opportunity I get to dress up or even dress up leggings, which I did here with the help of a womens online boutique called ShopPinkBlush Boutique.


PinkBlushย  is a Trendy Boutique Online that specializes in affordable Cute Dresses for Women, outerwear, skirts and blouses along with accessories such as boots, hats and more. They even have cute leggings (insert winking emoji).


I decided to dress these leggings up with a pale blush colored trench coat from ShopPinkBlush and loved it. When I first tried on the coat I was amazed at how it felt so lightweight and almost like a cardigan instead of a “coat” as the material is thinner. This trench coat made the perfect layering piece and would you believe it, my husband was the one who had the idea to add a belt to the look. Kudos to my amazing hubby and his style ideas here and there.


To add more to the look I partnered my trench and belt with some complimentary blush and gold tone jewelry (vintage pearl necklace and statement ring) and my lovely new (early) Christmas gift purse (thanks Whitney). kate-spade-handbag-pink-blush-trenchAside from the obvious purse, you can see that the trench has pockets and good stitching which makes this trench all the more desirable for me (as a mom). I can’t keep my hands out of those pockets.

Overall, I would highly recommend PinkBlush Boutique, I love their affordable items AND they offer free shipping in the US and if you know me then you know I almost rarely shop a boutique unless shipping is free. So what are you waiting for?

What are you waiting for? Come back tomorrow and next Monday as I feature two more items from this trendy boutique. Until then happy waiting.

*PinkBlush Boutique supplied me with this trench coat in exchange for a review of their boutique, however all opinions are my own.

    First of all your pieces from Pink Blush are beautiful and I happen to love soft pink or blush paired with heather gray. I love your coat and your husband is right, looks better belted. My favorite thing in this outfit though is that yummy KS bag – I want it. Lucky girl for getting such a Christmas present.

    P.S. I love everyone’s picks from last week and thanks so much fir featuring my Home Christmas post. It was such a nice surprise to see!
