How to Wear Pastels in the Winter

Free People thermal top (comes in several colors) // similar white pants
Chanel light beige bag, similar here // Baublebar earrings

Even though it's only February, it's not too early to start transitioning your wardrobe into spring-y colors and textures... which means busting out those pastels! The best way to start the transition is with white pants and a pastel-colored sweater. Yes, I am wearing open-toed sandals (because it wasn't very cold here yesterday), but grey booties or flats are also a great option and still look winter appropriate. I also like keeping my handbag neutral so that it doesn't take away from the pastels.

Sorry if I'm looking a bit disheveled in this post... I spent pretty much all day yesterday in the car and these photos were taken when I got back to Charlotte! I had been saving this top for the Carolina vs. Duke game yesterday... & I was sooo upset last night when UNC lost. Next time, boys!

xoxo
