Color Crush: Blush & Nude



1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12

After the long holiday weekend everyone on Instagram yesterday kept joking about how it was the “Monday-est” Tuesday ever. And boy was it! My morning started with a busted tire and ended way past my bedtime, with a to-do list barely accomplished. It was definitely just one of those days! Nothing terribly bad happened, but nothing seemed to go “right” either.

My favorite way to cope with days that just don’t treat you too well is to make a cup of tea, get out a blanket and search for items in a go-to shade. It sounds ridiculous, but anything blush or nude is always a “yes” in my book. The feminine tones with chic gold details never seem to fall off my radar! So as you can imagine, this is the black hole I fell into last night! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m always loving different trends, whether it is tassel or spots, but this color combination never really wavers in terms of admiration from me. Do you have a color combo like that?!

But on to better things, next week I’m headed to NYC with my mom for a few work meetings! I’m really excited to take her and am hoping to treat her to a special gift because she definitely deserves one. I get to head up to up thereย a bit more frequently for work than my mom does, so I have all my usual spots I love to eat at, but I’d love to hear your favorite restaurants! I’m making all our reservations today and would love to try something new. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!

    Hi Katey! I used to live across the river from Manhattan and my family has a birthday tradition – Broadway and dinner at an Italian spot called, Il Corso. They’re in Midtown and on OpenTable ๐Ÿ˜‰ You’d think we’d try something new each time, but we simply don’t want to. In fact, I’m going to be there in a few weeks with my mom and grandma. I gave them the option to go elsewhere, but they said, “Ohhh, how about that Italian place we always go to!” Done. Enjoy your trip!

  3. Hey Katey! My mom, sister and I took a girls trip to NYC a few weeks ago and practically used your NYC guide as a Bible that weekend. You had so many great recommendations! We did find one restaurant for dinner that wasn’t on your list, but I think you would love it! It’s called The Smith – the food is amazing, the atmosphere is really fun, and there is a photobooth in the restroom ๐Ÿ˜‰ It was really loud at night, but it could be fun to pop in for a cocktail or a late lunch!

    Hi Katey,

    You should definitely take your mom to afternoon tea at The Palm Court at The Plaza Hotel. It feels like you are inside an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, to be exact…The Great Gatsby! My Mom and I always go for our annual Mother/Daughter Tea time. It would be a special memory you and your Mother would never forget!

    Hope you enjoy New York!

    Hi Katey! I agree with Mackenzie – The Smith is amazing. Especially for brunch!

    If you have time one evening – definitely stop by The Met! The Manus x Machina exhibit they have right now is incredible. And the rooftop there has an amazing view. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I hope you have a great trip!
