Solid Colors Rock the Easter Dress

Happy Easter everyone!!! I was wondering what to wear this Easter Sunday as I have two sort-of "fall-back" Easter dresses. One is a floral print I picked up at Anne Taylor about 5 yrs ago, and the other is a white, drape-necked, fitted bottom (above-the-knee) dress I picked up at New York & Co. about 3 yrs ago. With both being above the knee, I usually apply self-tanning lotion 3 - 4 times at the knee/shin/calf area. The floral one I usually wear a fuschia shrug over and the white one I usually wear a coral swing knit jacket over. This year I discovered an amazing sale at Old Navy a week ago. 
Feast your eyes......

beige wedge sandals, Old Navy, recently
coral swing jacket, H & M, old

statement necklace, Old Navy, recent

This outfit holds true to one of my fashion mantras. Stick with basic, solid color pieces that will mix and match easily. It is then very easy to jazz up the outfit with accessories such as a scarf, a statement necklace, bold earrings, or a belt.

Happy Easter! Hope your day was pleasant and enjoyable. Look for an upcoming post that will feature these sandals that were purchased with several other neutral shoes recently -- THE HAUL!


  1. With the flowyness of the jacket and the bottom of your dress' skirt, maybe you should add some structure with a belt at the waist or swap for a more fitted jacket? This dress looks like it can be worn lots of way and will be a good versatile piece in your wardrobe.

  2. Yeah, I don't have a belt that would work, but that it is a good idea. I've been thinking of adding a couple of wide (possibly elasticized belts) to my wardwrobe. I'm looking forward to thinking of other ways to wear this dress!
