Don’t get me wrong–I LOVE fall colors. But this blog isn’t called Bright on a Budget for nothing. . .I love wearing pretty, bright colors all year long. It can sometimes be difficult, however, to find brightly colored pieces that truly work for the colder months. As soon as I say this long pastel color-block cardigan, I knew I had to have it!
Multiple brands and boutiques have some version of this color-blocked pastel scheme, from high end to low end. I saw this cardigan first on a boutique website for around $50, but then ran across it on Amazon for $32! One-click success story right here.haha
This pastel cardigan goes perfectly over a white and black color scheme. Don’t be afraid, however, to layer it over top other pastels. I have a pair of lavender jeans that this will look great with. Or you can opt to pair it with shorts like I did. Popping a long cardigan on over shorts is a cute way to transition your summer outfits to fall, especially as the evenings start to cool off.
If you look closely, you’ll see that I even paired black and brown together for this outfit. These Bearpaw Noelle sandals are awesome for fall transition, and they’re under $30 when you use code BPAMBTF.
I’m curious–how to you feel about pastels and other brights for fall? Does it mess with your pumpkin spice vibe or not?
