Easter Weekend

Easter: a feast that commemorates Christ's resurrection by Christians and is observed with variations of date due to different calendars on the first Sunday after the paschal full moon. It is also a time when children get excited by the Easter bunny and decorated egg-hunt. A game often played outdoors as a symbol of the rebirth of the earth in pre-Christian celebrations of spring and defined by early Christians as an Easter symbol of the resurrection of Christ.

For me, it is also a reminder that Spring is here. A weekend to appreciate the peace and beauty all around. Even if it is just for the few minutes during each day when you forget all that is expected of you and all you must do.  A tradition I love to do every year is to make the most of dressing up in my finest spring outfit for Easter Sunday celebrations.

This year, I decided to opt for a bright pastel colored dress for the Easter occasion. By choosing the right outfit, I am able to mix and match my accessories accordingly. I also selected a more neutral tan bag from Michael Kors and added some cool pieces of jewelry.

When choosing a dress for Easter, it is important to go with an outfit that has an element of timeless classic and one that is comfortable. You also want to consider a dress you can also wear to other occasions, like a spring cocktail party or dinner with family and friends. The last thing you want is to purchase a dress that is worn once and then sits in your wardrobe collecting dust.

Think simple lines, free-flowing dresses, and cuts that are flattering to your body shape.

The Outfit

This Eliza J. mock neck shift dress is totally my aesthetics. The feminine lines and coral color is fun and playful. This shape and outfit silhouette is what I love to wear when the occasion arises. I decided to style the dress with this tan Michael Kors handbag. You can shop a similar style here.

For the shoes I went for heels, because the nice spring weather permitted that only. I purchased this pair a while back and have only worn them a couple times. They were my go-to shoes for this weekend because I needed to add some sparkle to the ensemble.

My jewelry was kept to a minimum. The cuff bracelet is another Michael Kors piece which has such a clean design that I got it in two colors; gold and black. Finally, the rose quartz ring was a last minute touch to the outfit just because the color on the stone complimented my coral dress.  I am happy with how everything worked well together. Most importantly, this is a dress that can be worn multiple times.

What do you think?
