"My colors are blush and bashful...I have chosen two shades of pink; one is much deeper than the other."- Shelby from Steel Magnolia's

Good morning and welcome back from the weekend. I trust that everyone enjoyed the past two days of work-free bliss as much as I did.

I wish I could tell you I was super-productive, but that would be a lie; just lots of sleeping in, shopping and catching up with friends. I did, however, find an adorable dress yesterday for my trip to CA next week, so it wasn't a total wash : )

Anyway, to start our week off right, let's take a look at one of my favorite summer color trends, blush. Shades of nude, rose, rust and mauve are scorching hot right now and are great substitutions for neutrals like khaki, tan and black.

1. Nina Ricci handmade acetate sunglasses engraved with flower pattern
2. Satin mule by Rochas
3. NARS nail polish in Orgasm

4. Crocodile "D" bag by Tod's
5. Crocodile "Papier" bag by Tod's
6. Legere cardigan by Madewell
7. Fallen Needles skirt by Madewell

8. Maxi clutch in Suede by Aperlai by Burak Uyan
9. Tie-back wool jersey dress by Emilio Pucci
10. Aston high-heel sandals in Napa leather by Jimmy Choo
11.Soma dress by Elizabeth and James
12. Small ID bracelet with pink opal and pink sapphires by Ann Dexter-Jones
