Black on Black on Black

spring, black. fashion,

I find it ironic that Spring finally hits after months of depressing cold temperatures and snow, and I’ll be damned if the first outfit I pull from my closet isn’t all shades of black. One would think I would be inclined to break out the pastels, or bright hues of pink and green, but nope…I decided to take the path less traveled and I welcomed Spring with the saddest, darkest outfit I own.

With that said, I am actually really looking forward to Spring! I love the flowers blooming, warmer temperatures without the unbearable humidity and breaking out of my winter hibernation and beginning to do more things outside again…like eating brunches on patios! So while this shirt may look all winterish with it’s shade of black, it is actually quite versatile being lightweight, breathable and the perfect little top for the Spring chill.

I think a classic black top should be in every girl’s closet (or in my case – several classic black tops :))…it transitions through the seasons with ease, and you have no idea how many ways you can style a chic LBT (little black top) until you own one. And don’t even get me started on these adorable bell sleeves that remind me of flared pants, which remind me of the 70s, which just makes me feel free spirited and happy!

So while this outfit may be reminiscent of a looming black cloud, I actually had the best intentions for it and Spring. That’s why I paired it with orange lipstick!! I bought this shade last Spring, and I still love it as much now as I did when I purchased it. I am a huge fan of giving your makeup a Spring makeover, so this weekend, I put away my Fall/Winter shades and pulled out all those lovely shades of pinks, reds, oranges, corals and nudes. Speaking of lipstick, has anyone been lucky enough to score some of the matte lipsticks from Kylie Jenner?? If so, I’m going to need you to share some details in the comments below because curious minds need to know!
