Happy belated Easter my lovelies !
Can you believe it is that time already ? Holy crap, time is just flying by this year ! I hope all of your Easter’s were great and the Easter bunny treated you well ! He made a stop at my house and left me some lovely little treats that you will see down below. I miss Easter as a child, Easter egg hunts and dying eggs were some of my favorite things to do and now trying to get my boyfriend to hide some eggs for me to find doesn’t work out so well (yes have tried). As an adult Easter is pretty good too though, you get to eat as much chocolate as you want, as well as some amazing food (turkey anyone?) and get to spend time with family – all things you take for granted as a child. Still though, I can’t wait for the day when I might be able to hide some eggs for my child to find and live bi-curiously through them again. Anyways, I hope all of your Easters were amazing as I said and I hope you enjoy the rest of this post !
Now, although I am titling this post Easter Sunday Best, I actually did not wear this outfit on Easter because I was working ( yes at my work we don’t get Holidays ) but this is what I would have worn if I had gotten the chance to celebrate. All of the items in this post besides the boots and bag are new arrivals into my wardrobe and actually I bought all of them with the mindset of creating an entire look. Funny enough though, I would have gotten all of the pieces separately anyways because I love them all, but it just so happens they work together wonderfully.
Now, going into this spring transition period, I knew some key pieces I wanted to add into my wardrobe that seemed to be missing. A turtleneck bodysuit that could go under anything or just add an extra layer underneath things, a black leather skirt as I wear my other two (baby blue & white) so much, a long duster vest to add some interest to an outfit without being too hot and some new tights that are a little different to your basic black or nude. Each of these pieces on their own are extremely versatile and can be worn with almost anything but they are also stunning all together creating a very minimalistic, sophisticated look. The first person that came to mind when I was styling this look was Olivia Pope, I think that is mainly because of the vest (it is very much her style) but also because of the neutral palette which she is notorious for wearing.
Now that I have these pieces to add into my wardrobe, I am looking for some more color and spring inspired pieces to work in as well ( think even more pastels). As I always say, adding a few on trend pieces from each season into your wardrobe basics will not only make sure your staying true to your personal style, but will also prolong the use of those “trend” items if paired with classics you already have. It’s always a good idea to evaluate your closet each season and add in the missing pieces whether it be classics or trend pieces so that you can grow your wardrobe without spending a fortune.
Overall, this is one of my favorite looks I have styled in a long time, and I have already gotten a ton of use out of a lot of these pieces already. I may even have to add in a few other colors in the same things because I love them so much, we will see haha. I will also keep you updated on what ” trend pieces ” I add into my wardrobe over the next few months for spring as well, so stay tuned !
Anyways, I hope you all had wonderful Easters once again, and enjoyed your long weekends. Have lovely weeks everyone and don’t eat all of your chocolate at once !
