There is always a trendy color of the season. And while there are a few that I am loving for spring, it would be difficult to not start with this year’s Pantone Color of the Year. I talked about my love for the new color of the year in this post and the love is still going strong! From violet to lavender and everything in between, shades of purple are everywhere this spring.

This cozy sweater was my go-to top last weekend. Pair it with high waisted jeans and sneakers for a casual winter weekend outfit.

I know I have been talking a lot about spring in the past few weeks in my inspiration posts, but I feel like I can almost justify it now: the high tomorrow here in D.C. is going to be in the 70s! I know it won’t be sticking around, but this sneak peek of warmer temperatures makes me so excited for spring. And since I have been looking forward to spring since the first of January, I have already started adding pieces to my spring wardrobe (you can see last week’s post about what I’m buying for spring here). But just because these are “spring” pieces, doesn’t necessarily mean you have to wait until spring to wear them. Today, I’m talking about how to wear spring pieces now and later when spring eventually arrives.

All Black Everything with Grey OTK Boots

all black winter outfit ideas

All black everything. A go to combination all winter long, this outfit is one of my favorite dressed up casual looks. You may be a little distracted by my hair because it was all over my face for the majority of these pictures. These four were the only decent ones! While brainstorming post titles for today’s post, all I could think of was “hey, wind” or “trying to take pictures in the wind”. Ironically enough, these pictures were taken on the same day, one street over from Monday’s post pictures and the wind was completely fine. But, I digress. The point of today’s post is about one of my favorite trends: all black everything. Well, except for my OTK boots 😉

I am always in the market for cute and comfortable clothes that can double for a casual weekend or dressed up with jeans for date night.
