Easter Outfits

It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is April 1st and that Easter is just two weeks away!  Time to start thinking about an Easter outfit.  Below are three ideas for inspiration.  All incorporate some form of blush – Spring 2017’s “it” color!

Several pieces are from either Saks or Bloomingdales, currently running their Friends & Family promotions, and are available at 25% off. Popular items go fast so if you have your eye on something, act quickly!

Easter Look 1

This first look features a gorgeous A-Line dress with bell sleeves in a beautiful shade of blush.  The A-line is a very forgiving silhouette that most body shapes look great in.  This particular dress also comes in a lovely soft blue shade and crisp white.  I’ve kept the look very tonal, pairing the dress with a rose gold sandal and blush clutch.  Simple rose gold hoop earrings and a longer y-necklace finish this outfit.

Wardrobe Building: The Case for a Capsule Wardrobe

The term capsule wardrobe was coined in the 1970’s by a London boutique owner to describe a collection of a few essential clothing items that have a timeless style.  It became popularized in the US in the mid-80’s when Donna Karan released a seven-piece work wardrobe collection.  Most recently, the term capsule became reinvigorated with the launch of Project 333, a fashion challenge that invites people to dress with 33 items or less for 3 months.
