I’ve been going a little crazy shopping for spring. It feels good to fit into normal jeans again (although I’ll never understand why all pants can’t have a maternity waist band–amiright?!) and to wear my normal-ish size in clothes. One color that I realized I don’t wear enough in spring is black, even though it’s ok to wear black for spring.
Top: A New Day // Jeans: Loft–extra 40% off w/ code BFFS (petite version, similar) // Shoulder bag: Who What Wear // Earrings: gift from Chauncey (simulated pearl studs here) // Heels: A New Day // Initial necklace: Kate Spade // Bangle: David Yurman
Everyone talks about the no white after Labor Day rule, which you should break, but no one talks about the unspoken no black after Easter rule. Think about it–how many of you unconsciously avoid black after Easter? At that point, I think many people, including myself, start reaching for white pieces instead of black pieces in their closets. When I saw this black ruffle sleeve tee in store, I was reminded how chic black looked no matter the time of year.
To wear black in the spring, focus on pairing it with lighter color neutrals. Here, I added my go-to nude heels. They also serve to help elongate my legs when paired with these paint-splattered jeans. These jeans are so much fun. I love the rainbow colors of the paint splatters! And they’re part of Loft’s current sale. You can get 40% off regular priced items and an extra 50% off sale items with code BFFS.
Do you avoid black after Easter, or do you still incorporate it into your wardrobe?
