Pastels for Fall: Grey & Pink

Good morning, friends! Happy Halloween! Today I’m talking about wearing pastels for fall, and I styled a grey turtleneck tunic sweater with pale pink jeans. The striped scarf pulls it all together.

On Saturday morning, I woke up to a scratchy throat and 33º outside. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get warm, so I went into my closet and pulled out this turtleneck and scarf and bundled up.

This Chelsea28 Turtleneck Sweater is from last year, and I was thrilled to find that it’s been restocked at Nordstrom this season. Plus it just got marked down to $49.50. It also comes in ivory and burgundy.

It’s long like a tunic, but it has a slender silhouette and a curved high/low hem. I love how it’s cozy without being bulky. This sweater is made mostly of cotton but it has just a touch of cashmere so it feels soft and luxe. It runs slightly large, so you may want to size down. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.

The only thing I don’t like about it is the dropped sleeves. I feel like they make my shoulders look broader than they really are, but turtlenecks have a way of doing this as well, so the combination isn’t ideal on me. If you have narrower shoulders, it would definitely help balance you out.

This sweater looks best with more streamlined bottoms like these pink skinny jeans, and I also love it with regular denim. In fact, I wore it with distressed bluejeans on Saturday. This shade of grey looks great with medium wash denim. You know, me and my obsession with light neutrals right now!

For this post, however, I wanted to style this grey sweater with my pink jeans. We often put our pastel jeans away at the end of summer, but you can totally wear pastels in fall and winter, and they’re a nice alternative to the earth tones that are so popular this time of year.

The colors in this Gap scarf inspired the pink and grey outfit. It comes in a ton of pretty color combos, and it’s 35% off right now. Use the code BOO at checkout. Shipping is free over $50 so get two — one for you and one for your bestie! Seriously, these would make fabulous Christmas gifts. They’re super soft and cozy.

My jeans are the Paige Verdugo, but there are only a few sizes left. Similar pale pink jeans are these Hudson skinnies and these 7 For All Mankind. For less expensive pair, Old Navy has these Destructed Rockstar Jeans as well as these Rockstar Cord Skinny Jeans.

These Ugg boots were a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchase, and I love that they’re water resistant and have a shearling lined footbed. They’re so cozy. They also have memory foam in the footbed for extra comfort.

The 2 3/4 inch heel is comfortable to walk in but gives me some nice added height. At 5’5″ I’ll take all the added height I can get!

Of course you’ve seen this bag 155 times. It’s sold out, but I love the Tory Burch Thea Mini Bag in French Grey and this Kate Spade quilted crossbody in Porcini. For a larger bag, how gorgeous is this Michael Kors satchel in Cinder? And for a darker grey, this Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Love Suede Crossbody Bag with Tassel in gunmetal is new, and it’s calling my name. Must. Resist.

If you don’t like to spend a lot on your handbags, Target has a couple of nice options here and here.

I wore my new go-to Double Stud Faux Pearl Earrings with the larger side facing forward. I usually wear studs with turtlenecks and scarves because anything that dangles tends to get caught in the fabric of the turtleneck or scarf.

Loving this pastel striped scarf for fall and winter! Perfect for holiday gift giving too!

I really like the variety of grey tones in this outfit and then the pop of pink in the scarf that is repeated in the jeans in a more muted tone. It’s a different color palette for me, especially for this time of year, but I like it for a change. It actually looks more like winter than fall to me, but it works for either.
