Ok, the kids are set, hubby even has his new spring shirt and tie, but what about you? Will it be last year’s outfit? Or, will you do what I did years ago….I made, as in sewed, a white skirt on the day before Easter, then went out that evening and bought a sweater to go with it, then came home and finished sewing my toddler’s shorts and smocked top. Please tell me NO ONE behaves that way anymore. How crazy!!! Even if you are single, sometimes the whole Easter/Passover outfit dilemma becomes just tooo much. So today I’m here to try and make it a tad bit easier, maybe!
It’s already Wednesday and if you work out of the home or in, finding a dress or skirt and top plus shoes if needed, could be really time-consuming. My plan is, most of us already own a black skirt right? Why not pair it with a beautiful white blouse/top and a necklace of pearls, also a piece most of us have. The ivory pearls will look beautiful against the white of the top. The blouse needs to have great details or be constructed from a really fine fabric, plus fit nicely. Then wear black pumps or sandals you already own, but if you have time and some extra moolah, find a fabulous pair of sandals in a bright color to “pop” the outfit. Red or bright yellow would give you some real oomph!
Below are a couple examples of really nice blouses that would work….I’d probably check the department stores before places like Banana Republic or Cotton Mill for the right one, you’ll have a larger selection.
It doesn’t have to cost this much!! I hope you can see the lovely draping in the front….great for tummy disguising.
I also like this one, structured and sweet at the same time. Plus blouses look fabulous on just about everyone.
If you’d like to add a black belt for interest, go ahead. Or if you have a white skirt and like the look above, I’m all for that too!
My last option for quick and limited shopping but at great prices is a consignment store. I got 3 items at Designer Finds in Green Hills just the other day. A red, strapless, cotton sateen dress with the same color embroidering ( really pretty) from Ann Taylor for $35.00, a navy blue lined in white cotton maxi skirt for $14.00, it’ll be great with flip flops or chunky brown platforms, and a J Crew paisley blouse for $24. I saw some great spring wedding or Easter choices also.
I hope this helps a bit and makes your next few days less frantic. With worrying about baskets and such, who needs the headache??
Happy Easter…… I hope your weekend is glorious!
