Going outside is great, but I now start hardening with full shade, then look for the 'speckled' sunlight under the shade of a tree.
+1 on advising against pure topsoil. Either flush what you got, or move to another mix with good drainage.

Good luck with yours--some plants are ultra sensitive to nutes, so maybe the flush will be your fix.

It does kind of look like a tan and a little like fert burn. Strange how it's along the veins though. That suggests fert overdose to me. I'm not a fan of the slow release ferts in MG and similar fertilizers. You don't have any control. I would flush it with water and see if it starts to improve. If not then repot but don't go with plain old top soil. That stuff will turn into a brick and choke the plant. Lots of good soilless growing mediums out there that peppers just love.
I used to not like MIracle gro untill I became a better gardener then I could see their fertilizer is on of the best for the money. I add peat/perlite/lime to Miracle gro potting mix and take advantage of its heavy texture and fertilizer. But I do not use it alone.
