It's Pastel Season! | N. Peal Cashmere

N Peal Cashmere Lilac Cropped Cardigan
I couldn't be any happier for the new season's influx of gentle pastel shades; baby blue, pink and lilac standing out above all else. Yellow and mint coming in at joint second place.  We've now well and truly shed the darker outfits from winter featuring layers upon layers, and kicked off the OTK boots.  Although, as I've mentioned before, the beauty of transitional styling is being able to keep some aspects of the past season in mind - cashmere, for example.  Ooh.  Could there be a more luxurious material?  Back to the pastel shades, they're undoubtedly the icing on the (super soft) cake.  Right now I'm obsessing over the many current trending shades of purple and I'm pretty confident lilac is a shade that suits all complexions.  It's gentle, feminine and perfectly suited to the season...

When it comes to wearing pastels, I'm all about 'the more, the merrier'.  For this look, I've paired this gorgeous lilac cashmere cardigan from N.Peal with an embellished cream tulle skirt and black accessories - complete with bow.  Is it just me, or do the warmer months of the year scream for romantic details like this?  Ugh, dreamy.  But my favourite aspect of the look is absolutely still the cashmere cardigan, particularly thanks to the cropped length.  I opted for the smallest size to ensure a tight and short fit, which will always be my recommendation as they pair so nicely with high-waisted skirts.  Oh Spring, how we've missed you...

  3. Pastel tends to be a very tricky shade on me as a lot seems to wash me out or looks weird against my skin tone.

  5. I am wearing a grey cashmere sweater today, I avoid pastels in my clothes. You look like a fairytale princess though, with your pastel cardigan and beautiful tulle skirt.

  8. What a feminine pastel look! I really like this cashmere sweater, paired with this skirt, it's pure perfection. Lilac and white looks so wonderful together, it's a match made in fashion heaven. You do look divine! The castle is such a perfect background for this outfit. You look like a princess that has stepped out of a fairy-tale.

    Light and pastel shades are always appropriate for Spring time and are certainly something to look forward to when it comes to styling our spring outfits. I'm actually really happy about trying out more white. I don't have many white items in my closet apart from a zillion white shirts, so I'm really looking forward to exploring light shades a bit more. The same goes for pastels. I'm starting to appreciate them more and more.

    So in love with your pastel cardigan, so fresh and fits your style very well. And the skirt definitely makes a statement :) I really like these colours such as pastel, light pink or beige and plan on adding them to my wardrobe this summer. :)

  15. As always, you are the queen of photos! I love it! I am also glad that we can shed the winterwear. I am more of a 'bold colour' kind of gal, which I know is more appropriate for high summer, but I do love this look on you. Especially the skirt! Having said that, I could try out some pastel this spring. I am thnking baby blue and pink!

  30. Looking like a total fairytale goddess in lilac gorgeous Gabrielle, I don't think I've ever seen anyone ever rock this colour oh so beautifully as you! The cream tulle skirt is a total vision, so stunningly pretty and perfect for blissful spring weather :) I went a bit pastel crazy a few years back but these days I don't tend to wear too many pastel shades. You've definitely inspired me to give them another go! Also adoring the dreamy backdrop of your stunning photos, so outta this world magical! <3

  47. What a beautiful post, the first thought that sprung to mind when viewing these photographs have to be the words fairytale princess! Such picture perfect photographs.

    Pastels suit you very nicely that's for sure and a fan of this pretty little cashmere cardie! Agreed lilac is a colour that suits most people, it's very delicate, light pink is also a wonderful colour to suit all as it's ever so warming.

    The Silhouette you've created with the fitted cardie and tulle skirt is very feminine indeed, and what a beautiful backdrop.

    Great post and thanks for sharing it with us Gabielle!

    Lots of love,

  48. I love the watercolour background you’ve put with some of these photos! And I’m SO with you, I’m obsessed with pastels and have been for years and years. I’ll never get over a soft pastel pink or yellow, or any colour really, my wardrobe is pretty much exclusively red/black/navy/white and pastels and I’m perfectly happy with that. I also love a tight-fitting knit with a midi skirt – that’s what I wore yesterday and it’s perfect for transitional weather.
