Winter to Spring: Two Outfits With a Black or Navy Gingham Button Up

I know many people are still battling colder weather while others are already transitioning to spring.  Given the wide variety of weather in different regions this time of year, I’ve been trying to blog a mix of winter and spring style.  Today’s post has both, as we are talking about how to take one piece from winter and style it for spring!

Winter to Spring: Two Outfits With a Black Gingham Button Up

I’ve talked before about my navy gingham button up and have done several remixes with it.  I can wear it almost year round, layering more or less underneath and on top of it depending on the season, except for the extremely hot days in the summer.

I’m not able to wear the navy gingham one during pregnancy, so I got this black gingham button up for very, very cheap a few months ago as it’s longer and fits over my bump.  It’s sold out now, but there’s a similar black gingham one HERE, or you can check out my longstanding favorite navy gingham one which is still available HERE.

Winter Outfit: Darker Colors and Thicker Layers
The base of this outfit is a black gingham top with black jeans, so I used taupe accessories to “lift” the outfit a little instead of darkening it more with more black.  Not that more black would have been “wrong” or “bad,” but you know me–I like to mix neutrals.  🙂  I LOVE this cozy look for winter!

Spring Outfit: Lighter and Brighter with a Pop of Blush
For spring, pair this top with white or olive jeans and a lightweight denim jacket–all of which were building blocks named in my Spring Style Profile for Put-Together Casual Looks!

I’ve heard people say they don’t want to wear booties with outfits in the spring because it still looks “too fall” or wintry.  If that’s a concern, opt for lighter taupe booties.  If you’re *still* unsure, add a very springy accessory, like a blush bag.  Instant spring!
