Hippity Hoppy

Posted by writergrll. Comment (1).

Hello!  Happy Easter.  Today is supposed to be warm but a little rainy.  My husband and I are hosting my parents and his for a mid-day Easter meal.  I haven’t decided what I’m going to wear yet, but here are some outfits that I wore the last week.

Wednesday was an absolutely gorgeous day!  I was off and it turned out to be a super-productive day for me.  That evening I finally put together an outfit with my newest dress.  I have to confess that I bought this dress to duplicate this outfit, here, but I don’t have a long-sleeved striped shirt in those colors.  And, we’re slowly moving away from the season of long-sleeved shirts and layering.  But, never fear– I adapted the idea into a season-appropriate outfit.

I paired my chambray shirt dress with a short-sleeved blue and white striped t-shirt.  I skipped the bandana around the neck even though I had one that could have worked well.  I kept the original fabric belt of the dress and instead of going with my short tan/suede booties I decided to go with my black and brown espadrille wedges.  I absolutely loved the look but I have to admit that I did feel a bit self-conscious over the length of the dress.  It’s by no means inappropriate but it is shorter than all of my other dresses so it felt a little awkward.

Since it was such a beautiful day and my husband was home and I had time before class we took a bunch of photo’s of this outfit– including these outside on our balcony.  Love, love, love.

Because I didn’t wear this outfit to work on Wednesday, just to class for a few hours in the evening I wore the striped shirt to work on Thursday.  My outfit was based on this idea, here.

It’s pretty basic: striped t-shirt, medium wash skinny jeans, brown ballet flats, and a turquoise bubble necklace.  I like the outfit for its simplicity and subtle style.  Also, I liked how my hair looked that day.  Friday I wore an olive-green t-shirt with an olive-green boyfriend cardigan over top, dark wash bootcut jeans, and my knock-off Sperry topsiders.  It wasn’t anything spectacular and I didn’t have time to snap a picture before work.

Saturday was all about comfort– I paired a graphic tee with light wash bootcut jeans and tennis shoes.  I threw a hoodie over top and called it complete.

There you have it.  I’m excited that the weather is slowly becoming more mild and warmer on a consistent basis so that I can start wearing my Spring and Summer clothes.

    Wow! You look absolutely stunning in that dress! No reason to feel self-conscious about the length, you definitely have the legs for it, and the shoes are a perfect match.
