Last year I wore a skirt from Francesca's. You can see that look HERE. And would you believe I haven't worn that skirt since? I just don't get a lot of use out of fancy dresses/skirts so I decided to fore go that option this year. And no, I can't wear the same skirt again like my husband suggested 😊 because we always take family pictures and I don't want to be seen wearing the same skirt in our holiday photo year after year.
So this year, I decided to go with a pretty Easter Lavender cardigan (But if you look closely you will see I have the same white top on as I wore last year. So there! I do wear clothes more than once! 🙂) Since I'm getting older by the minute, I decided to try shopping at CJ Banks and that is where I found this pretty cardigan. They had a "One Day Only 60% Off Sale" on certain items so I was able to snag this sweater for a steal. I can't find it anymore on their website, but they have other very pretty lavender cardigans as well as other spring colors.
It's a thinner knit (my favorite), so it's very slimming and lightweight for spring. It has 3/4 length sleeves, and interesting details on the lower portion of the cardigan and the sleeves. It also has a nice length, going past the waist to the hip line.
Because I will be traveling and carrying a lot of extra items with me, I chose this straw handbag I picked up at a garden store a season or two ago. I tied a lavender floral chiffon scarf to it in case I need it for extra warmth. I wore a purple and silver bracelet on my wrist and my usual rings.
And yes, these are the shoes you've been seeing everywhere. They are the Steve Madden knock off of the $600.00 Chloes everyone is raving about on Blog Land. I'm usually not the type to buy something everyone else is wearing, but these shoes "had me at hello."
I absolutely love them! I love wedges because they give me the height, but I can still walk in them (Well, almost still walk in them. I did practically fall off of them while posing on these steps. But in my defense, these steps are rotting and falling apart so it's easy to trip and stumble. 😂).
But yes, they are super comfortable and they go with everything! They come in two other colors as well: Black and Cognac. I am wearing the taupe color. I got mine at DSW for $60.00.
For jewelry, in addition to my bracelet I chose this lovely purple stone necklace with coordinating earrings. I bought the set at a gift shop on one of my travels.
The cut out top is by Liz Claiborne (old).
I did get new white jeans. I've had the same pair of white jeans for years but I started to notice that they were getting shorter and shorter to the point that they were practically Capri's. Do you have the problem of clothing items shrinking up? I don't mind if things shrink a bit to get more narrow, but my issue is most items tend to shrink up and become shorter. When you have long legs and a long torso like me, you need clothes as long as you can get.
So, now that my old white jeans were as short as Capri's, off I went to Ross and I found this cute pair for around $20.00. And would you believe they are high-waisted too? Yea! High-waisted pants that tuck my tummy in are so hard to find. I was so happy to find these. And I also bought them one size bigger so if they do shrink, it won't be quite so bad.
I'm very pleased with the way this outfit came together and I am so excited to wear it this Easter. I think it's cute and fits the holiday well, yet it is also so comfortable that I will be able to enjoy wearing it while I spend time with family and friends.
