National Beach Day Is Here!
Posted on August 30, 2018.
September is literally just around the corner (as in, we can see it from here!). As the summer ends and you spend your last couple days sunbathing for a good while (unless you’re here with us in Miami, where the beach days never really end), don’t forget that August 30th is National Beach Day!
Of course, this is a day to enjoy the sand in your toes and the sea breeze in your hair. Just as important to remember is how important it is to respect the awesome beauty and nature of the beach, and to keep beaches across the US clean and free of trash! It’s also important to respect any wildlife you come across while relaxing in the warm waters that summer brings. We know you already know all of this, but National Beach Day is a great reminder for us all (especially in these times where all kinds of craziness is going on with Mother Nature) to minimize our impact while enjoying the beach. Because as we all know, the beach is LIFE.
That said, here’s to one last weekend of getting nice and bronze! What an amazing summer... from Blush to you, have a great Labor Day weekend!

If there’s anything a fashion-forward Blush gal knows, it’s that when it comes to the rules of fashion, there ARE no rules. After all, how do you think new trends come about? And how do you figure old trends that you never thought you’d see again, make their way into your wardrobe in 2018 (fanny packs, we’re looking at you). Yep, it’s because fearless females like you already know EXACTLY what looks good on them, and don’t need anyone telling them how to put an outfit together.
That said, we’re totally done with the “no white after Labor Day” rule! This fall, we say, if it feels right, go for it! Rumor says this “fashion rule” was started at the turn of the century to separate the fashion elites/those with old money from the come-ups with new money, who may have not been as well-versed in fashion etiquette. It was a way of the elite trying to separate themselves into a higher class than others who were JUST as into fashion. Okay, this is so “Mean Girls,” and we’re not feeling it at all!
A+ Classics For Your Back-To-School Wardrobe
Posted on August 24, 2018.
Where does the time go? It feels like we were just getting out our summer florals, and here we are, already thinking about what to wear to go back to school. If you’ve also been wondering what trends to start the school year off In, Blush has you covered with some classics that you can mix and match all fall long. Here are some pieces we absolutely heart:
-We’re currently very into our Crew Neck Tee, which comes in your color choice of beige or black, and features distressed detailing at the hems. Mix and match with denim, skirts, and anything else your heart desires – this piece will never go out of style.
-For extra credit, we highly suggest our Relax Fit Button Down. This breezy, classic button down looks good tucked in or out, and features a cute little pocket on the left chest. This forever stylish piece looks perfect with denim, a corduroy skirt, and any of your other fall staples.
-To finish off any look (and keep you warm during those early fall breezes), cover up in the Blank NYC Denim Jacket. Timelessly stylish but featuring a raw hemline for a very “now” look, this jacket is just perfect for heading back to school.
While planning your fall wardrobe, don’t forget to enjoy the rest of summer!
Mix & Match: Joah Brown
Posted on August 21, 2018.
We are really digging Joah Brown, whose pieces are now available at Blush Boutique. We love the effortlessly cool yet comfortable vibe of this line, and could mix and match these pieces for the rest of time, without ever running out of new combinations. We’re especially obsessed with...
The Side Tie Tank. This adorable little muscle tank features a crew neck, and goes easily from day to night. This one is somehow strappy and simple at the same time, and comes in either black or white.
The Boxy Tee is that top you never knew you needed, but now can’t live without. This one is indeed boxy, but still manages to keep an alluring silhouette. We love the striped print!
The Classic Leggings are those leggings that you end up living in, because they work perfectly everywhere. Dress them up for work. Sweat them out at the gym. Chill out in them on the weekends. Versatile and flattering, these babies are almost too good to be true!
The Ribbed Open Cardigan is definitely the icing on the Joah Brown cake! Wrap yourself in this comfy, long sleeved cardigan no matter what you’re wearing under it. Wear it hanging down, or tie it in the front for a slightly different look. Either way, this piece will never let you down.
Joah Brown’s pieces work all year round, but are particularly good as the new school year begins, because no matter which pieces you mix and match early in the morning, you’ll be a style star all day long. Snag these pieces while they last!

Trending for Summer: Fashion Forward Linen
Posted on August 6, 2018.
Us Miami girls love us some fashionable linen as we sweat out the year-round ridiculous heat and humidity (hey, it’s a small price to pay for living in paradise). We all know linen pieces can sometimes be crafted a little bleh, so we are always really excited when we get some super cute linen pieces in to satisfy our summer needs! Here’s the in-stock pieces that we currently have our eyes on!
Lost + Wander’s Linen High Waisted Shorts and Flutter Crop top are a summer dream team. The crop top features ruffle detail along the front, with a zipper closure. The matching shorts feature contrasting button detail. Add a pair of wedges to this set, and you’re ready to rule the summer.
The J.O.A. Linen High Waisted Skirt features contrasting buttons along the front, and being that it’s black, it goes with absolutely everything! This is the perfect go-to skirt for summer… great for work!
Linen has NEVER looked as good as our Linen Pleated Shorts! These fluttery white shorts feature side peplum detail that almost make these shorts look like a skirt – they’re a flattering, feminine take on linen shorts that we absolutely love!
Our lavender-hued Square Neck Mini Dress is all that and more. This pretty dress features ties in the back and an elegant straight neckline, along with skinny (and adjustable) spaghetti straps. This one is perfect for daytime events… when you look this hot, no one will ever imagine you’re beating the heat in linen!
Enjoy every last drop of summer sun in these beauties!
Crushing on Yellow
Posted on August 3, 2018.
This summer, we’re obsessed with a color that’s always been there, but sometimes gets shadowed by flashy pinks and cool turquoises. Yep, we are talking about yellow, summer’s sweetest color. We have some new pieces in at Blush that we can’t wait to wear out, but before we do that, we wanted to share these trendy, summery items with you!
We’re in love with our High Low V-Neck Blouse, which is literally the epitome of summer. This deep V neck, fluttery sleeved, button up blouse trains off in the back, and is great for showing off a little leg when worn with denim shorts! The floral pattern on yellow gives this piece just a hint of a boho vintage vibe.
Our Polka Dot Split Short & Peplum Tank Set, which come in a very chill, muted yellow polka dot pattern, drapes perfectly and pairs well with wedges for all of your after-hours summer adventures. We love the bow detailing along the front of the top.
Our Ruffle Cold Shoulder Midi Dress is nothing short of summer fabulous. Featuring spaghetti straps, cascading ruffles, and ruching along the front of the dress, this piece is perfect for showing off your curves in a flirty yellow pattern. Beyond perfect for a summer night at an outdoor lounge.
How will you wear yellow this summer? So many options, we know! Check out all of our fresh summer gear at any of our boutiques, or at our online store!
