Easter Outfit






Okay, I'm still trying to figure out how best to style this new cut, announced here. It's a work in progress... 

My toes have come out of hiberation with a pedi thanks to DeStefino Beauty Bar in South Side Works

As a little kids my mom would always have "new" Easter outfits for me and my brother. By "new" I mean often times they were hand-me-downs from older cousins, or found in thrift stores, which was really smart of her. Why spend a lot of money on matching sailor suits we'd only wear a few times, right?  Regardless of the provenance of our Easter clothes, the important point, is that it was a reason to dress up.  

Not that I need a reason, now as an adult to dress up, it's still nice to have one! So, above is what I wore yesterday for Easter Mass. This dress was an epic deal. If you follow me on instagram you may have seen that I picked up this frock for a mere $8.97!!!! Yes, that is a FACT! Check it out here! I wasn't in the market for a new dress, but when the savings are that insane and the dress in question is super cute, flattering, and versatile then you have to go for it. I can see this number becoming a go-to piece this season, especially for the office. And I'm thinking slate blue, grey, white, and black may end up being my signature color palette for Spring 2015. It feels fresh, yet subtle, and I already have pieces in my wardrobe to make a go of it!
