Maurice's Review - New Neutral



blazer: c/o Maurices ~ t-shirt: H&M ($8) ~ cords: JCrew (gift) ~ shoes: Mia via DSW ($60) ~ necklace & cuff: both gifts 

Date: February 14, 2012
Ensemble message: The kind folks at Maurices contacted me to do a product review, and I was happy to oblige.  After all, Maurices are not available to my geography and I'm always looking to sample a new store :)  As soon as I saw this blazer, I knew it would be the perfect review this close to spring!  From what I could tell via my computer screen, the color of the blazer would be somewhere between a pale beige and a blush.  When it arrived (and it arrived quickly!!), I was very happy to see that the color is more blush!  Depending on what you wear with it, the blush either looks more pink (like with reds, darker pinks, and purples) or less so.




I was pleasantly surprised that the jacket was unlined.  While it's still winter here in Northern NJ, I know I will appreciate having a suit separate in the summer that doesn't make me completely melt.  I plan on pairing this gentle neutral with many different bright colors!  Or I can wear it with black, and let the blush stand out.  I'm a neutrals girl at heart, so I can appreciate this staple item in this season's new neutral.  Like it?  Check out this totally affordable blazer now!
