Mixing pastels can be tricky, but when done right, is so pretty. I love wearing pale yellow and cornflower blue together… but I also love yellow and mint, yellow and pale pink, and lilac with pale pink.

The key to getting it right is to have an anchor neutral to keep the rest of the look feeling simple and streamlined. In this case, I went with camel… pairing my colorful basics with a leather jacket + platform heels in the same hue. It’s also smart to keep your jewelry/accessories simple (and in the same metal family)… I went with this necklace + these earrings.. they both incorporate Charleston Rice Beads, so the texture + metal are both uniform.

Also, Grana is offering 10% off + free worldwide shipping with code GRACExGRANA! (ends June 30th!)

This post is a part of my collaboration with Grana. I’ve been working with Grana since this past Fall and have completely fallen in love with the brand.

They have the greatest basics… especially when it comes to silk and cashmere. And nearly everything they sell is under $100, which is fantastic because the quality is so so good. (My tank is only $29!) Grana’s silk basics are made from Chinese silk which has an exceptional drape + softness, and is surprisingly durable… they use 2-ply fabric which makes it extra strong!
