Not Quite Spring

March 21, 2016

In classic mid-Atlantic fashion, the first day of spring was cloudy and cold! I always keep my winter wear out until April, because March is known to be hot one week and freezing the next. This is actually fine with me because I still want to wear my coats and sweaters before it gets too warm. Here is an outfit I wore last week that is perfect for this weird winter to spring transitional time.  All black is any basicer's uniform, and I added the camel jacket on top to give it some color. 

Underneath I wore this black cropped sweater from Sammydress. I wanted a black cropped sweater for a while now and this one is perfect because it's so easy to wear and goes with everything! I've also been loving these chelsea boots I mentioned in my February Buys post. They are perfect for work and also with casual outfits, as they are super easy to just slide on and head out the door. 

This week is going to have some mild days and cold nights so I will definitely be wearing my winter coats a little while longer. You can see how I styled this coat with blue jeans a few posts back

What are some of your winter to spring transitional pieces?
