We associated these soft delicate colors with spring but the rules are already broken, you can wear your favorite clothes at fall and here is how:

1. Mix pastel pieces with darker shades (dark chocolate, burgundy)

2. Pastel can be beautifully incorporated into your fall wardrobe by mixing it with camel, gray or winter whites

3. If wearing delicate pastels is out of your comfort zone but you still want it to be a part of your fall wardrobe just get an elegant pastel scarf, belt, jewelry or bag

4. Ohhh and don’t forget about a nice pair of shoes in peach or baby pink hues!

And it is finally time for our “Monday Bloom Challenge”!!! Did you see how me and my gorgeous friends Ani and Sofia styled our looks in pretty macaron shades (collage above)? This is such a pretty coincidence that we all picked items in baby pink hues.

    Love pastels. Thank you so much for linking up. See you next Thursday.



  • Pastels can be worn in any season but in the winter, they will definitely be covered with a sweater or blazer.

    • elena

      I thought the same as well, but when I saw gorgeous winter coats and jackets in blush colors I completely changed my mind;) well, it also depends on the weather condition where you live

  • That dress is lovely on you! I don’t really think I own any pastels, period. I tend to gravitate more towards bright colors when shopping, but I could pull off a mint or a light pink, I imagine…
