in What I Wore

Like many of you, I spent yesterday observing Easter (not the commercial/pagan way via the Easter bunny, but the religious way celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ as the holiday was intended).  This is what I wore.

I was planning to break out my minty green jacket again by pairing it with a dress that  is reminiscent of and has a very 50’s, Stafford Wives type vibe but I thought the pastel was too expected for Easter and the dress too church lady like.  Besides, something of that era, yearns for one of those fancy Philip Treacy type hats to complete the look and I don’t think I am old enough for a fancy hat.

Instead of donning the expected,  I chose this outfit which celebrates my femininity (ala the ruffled neckline and ruffled peplum waist of the H&M blouse, and large and bold floral print of the skirt, also from H&M).   The scalloped edge of the ruffles reminded me of flowers and I thought that detail and the color would complement the skirt.  The ruffles created enough drama for the neckline and as a result, I kept my neck bare.  For my ears, I chose these barely there earrings (which thank God you can see now that my hair is shorter).  Because of the ruffled neckline of the blouse, I chose a clutch purse instead of a shoulder bag and finished off the look with my woodra platform heels.

XoXo, Natasha
