Pastels & Knits: Blue Hue

Don't let sunny winter days fool you, we in the northwest know that these days often tend to be those almost unbearably crisp, cold days where you crave nothing but layers. I like to think I have mastered the process of how to properly layer for these chilly winter days all while staying fashion forward. 

In this second look of my Pastels & Knits collaboration series with KNDM CoI am showing off how to rock your chunky knits with some color in the winter without going too bold and bright. Up until this year, I despised pastels. I thought they washed out my skin and I never was drawn to the muted shades. However, I've had a change of heart. Maybe its the darker hair that's making me feel more comfortable in the color palette of pastels but I can't get enough of them! Plus, they are so fun to mix and match with monochromatic items. 

My new favorite closet staple, my Tahari robin's egg blue coat from Nordstrom is the perfect amount of color to add to an otherwise monochrome/simple look. It's subtle but this blue pastel color has become one of my favorites of the muted color family. It's also a great layering piece because it keeps you warm. As stated from my first look post, I'm wearing my charcoal flared knit pants from Forever21 paired with a white cable-knit sweater from Nordstrom. For accessories, my bejeweled statement necklace from Forever 21 and my reversible Street Level Tote from Nordstrom are great standout pieces. For additional layering and warmth, I'm wearing my favorite pom beanie from LOFT for extra feminine flare!
