The Fall Palette — Metallics & Pastels

Posted on November 17th 2014 by

In an attempt to wear another color besides all black, the other day I took advantage of the semi-warm weather and opted for pastels and metallic hues. Surprisingly, I decided to step out of the sartorial comfort zone by finally realizing that other colors and pieces of clothing exist in my closet. On any given day I’m usually dressed down, but always incorporate something tailored. Judging by the photogenic evidence on the Chicest Degree, I’m always wearing my black Prada blazer every chance I get with almost everything. This time last year, I bought this silk pastel blazer by The Row. For whatever reason I’ve managed to ignore it existed for the past few months, since the last time I’ve worn it and decided to take it for a spin.

Who was I kidding by trying to so say no to black for as long as I could. I tried on every bottom I own, but changed right into my favorite black denim skinny jeans with the hidden slits on the knee. Per the usual, I only wear boyfriend jeans but it was nice to have on something a bit more fitted. This was also the last time leaving the house without a jacket was acceptable. The only obvious missing accessory to complete this outfit, is a spiced pumpkin latte, of course. Lastly, I apologize for my resting bitch face, deep down I’m really excited the air is getting colder. Can’t you tell?
