What I Wore: Peach and Cream

I don't know what it is this winter but I'm really gravitating towards pastels.  While fall I was all about merlot and pumpkin, now that it's truly cold I want to bundle up in softer shades. And Comfort reached out and asked if I'd like to try their Fika Sweater.  While available in black (which is always a fave) I decided instead to try the peach and I am so glad I did!

The And Comfort Fika Sweater is a cashmere/wool blend.  It's thick, but super soft and the ribbing keeps it from being too ordinary or too bulky.  Here I wore it with ivory jeans, but I've also worn it with my black Universal Standard jeans and my black faux leather front ponte leggings.  I think pastels paired with black looks very fresh and modern and makes pale shades feel seasonally appropriate. However, this past Sunday I wore this sweater with my new blush colored Lissom flats and it was a nice pairing with denim.

I felt the need for a delicate gold necklace in my jewelry collection.  I had one that was a horseshoe but it had completely disapeared; I worried I left it in NYC which is where I think I lost one of my small silver Carmine hoops from Jenny Bird.  I ordered this one which I like because it has an adjustable chain that is a minimum of 18″ with 2″ to spare; while 16″ may be trendy it's not great on those of us with thicker necks.  I got it, I loved it, I went to clean out Emerson's toy box in the living room before Thanksgiving and guess what I found? Don't be surprised to see me wearing both of my gold necklaces together!

These are the same jeans I wore in this post (and in this article) but in a different color. Cream has been more worn and versatile than I could have imagined.  A regular look is them with a black cashmere sweater, my black belt bag, and black boots (or if the temps are nicer, black flats).  I've also worn them with a black and ivory t-shirt and black flats, and my cream cable knit sweater. With so much black and dark colors in the dead of winter, a lighter colored pair of denim can be a refreshing change.

    I am loving this initial necklace…I have already favorited the shop and will buying the “S” soon! Thanks for the heads up!

    Wow! I generally like your outfits but for some reason this one is pressing all my love buttons!

  • Tara November 29, 2018

    This is a great color combination and I loved your earlier ice-blue and black suiting combo as well. Way to mix it up! I also love that your (lucky?) horseshoe necklace turned up–how nice that you can pair it up with your new pretty necklace as well. Thanks for all the hard work you put into your posts, Allison. I love visiting your site every day and seeing what you’re up to! 🙂

    I liked those pants in blue but I think they’re even better in cream.

    Love this look. I have those jeans and need to try to copy this!

    I find that I’m enjoying lighter colors in winter as well. I wear my white jeans constantly–they look so cute with ankle boots and different cardigans and sweaters. That peach looks so pretty on you!
