At first blush, Jane's idea seemed like a good one.

Question: Is this sentence correct?

I don't know whether it is appropriate to use "at first blush" in casual conversations.

The sentence is OK. "At first blush" isn't a common phrase--the synonymous "at first glance" is probably more common--but it's quite acceptable in polite conversation.
