Hey there friends… Happy Easter!
I was incognito last week due to a hectic work schedule, but this week I’m back.
Here’s my latest round up of outfits for early April.
Saturday Breakfast Outing
This long navy blue dress from Nordstrom is one of the most practical purchases I’ve made in the last year or so. It’s works most seasons of the year and for so many occasions (summer work days with a lightweight sweater, fall with boots and jacket). I wore it this morning for a fun casual breakfast at a pie shop.
This shirtmaker style dress is so comfortable. The blue chevron print works great year round too. This morning was a little chilly, so I topped it with a trench coat, which was quickly shed by noon.
This day was a little more casual than usual, so I wore jeans with this white dress shirt and long sweater. The sweater actually attaches on the ends and wraps up and around my neck. But I figured out I can wear it long this way like a duster too. You know, I’m all about finding new ways to wear my items.
Recently, I found a wonderful youtube channel, Justine Leconte. Justine is a French fashion designer and she offers up so many helpful tutorials about dressing for one’s body shape. After watching her channel, I have so many ideas for things that are way more flattering for my figure, and this outfit was born out of applying her advice. (Milly A-line skirt to skim the hips and wide shouldered top to accentuate the upper body more). Check her out and you might get some inspiration!
How many peeps did you eat this year? I managed to get through without a single one… This comfy Tahari sheath dress was front and center for the day. It’s the second time in two weeks I’ve worn it after it’s been hiding in my closet.
Advice when you feel like you have nothing to wear and you are tempted to buy something new? Shop your own closet. What’s been sitting in the back, unloved for months, or even years?
