Trend Watch | Pastels for Fall

Along with traditional jewel tones and deep, saturated hues, a surprising color trend is making it’s debut this fall – pastels.

The good news is that this trend can extend the wear of some of your favorite pastel pieces from spring and summer.  Think twice before you store those pink, lavender, mint and yellow cardigans, blouses, blazers and jeans.

I decided to give it a try with my favorite pair of mint jeans.  Adding a navy jacket and leopard heels helped to ground the look and make it more fall-like.

If you don’t have a pair of pastel jeans yet, it’s not too late.  Here’s an option in corduroy also made by Kut from the Kloth.  These jeans fit me so well – they have the perfect rise, not too high or too low. Their corduroys come in eight different colors.

These would look great paired with a chunky beige sweater and some ankle boots.

Your Bijoux Box CollageOver the past few weeks, I’ve featured these three gorgeous pieces of jewelry from Your Bijoux Box.  Your Bijoux Box is a monthly box subscription service that delivers two to three pieces of hand curated jewelry to your front door – all for $35 a month.

All of the pieces I received are very high quality.  The clasps, weight and craftsmanship are what I’d expect from a high end retailer.  I also love that a little card is included each month with suggestions for pairing up the pieces.
