My Easter Sunday Dress

Happy Easter Weekend! I had so much fun writing an Easter style post—The Hunt is Over: Celeb-Inspired Easter Looks You’ll Love—for Mode.com earlier this week. I simply turned to a few of my personal favorite style stars each with her own sophisticated feminine style.

My own Easter Sunday look seems to have been inspired by that post. The dot dress (now 50% off) I’m wearing is quite similar to a Kerry Washington ensemble I included in the Mode post. I hadn’t shopped J.Crew Factory in months, but I immediately planned a trip to the store after seeing the dress online. I tried it on, and the rest is history.

Here’s how I’m wearing it this weekend.

Dress: J.Crew Factory (50% off right now)

Pumps: J.Crew (option, want these)

Clutch: Kate Spade (similar)

Earrings: c/o Simply Chic

Bracelets: c/o Simply Chic

Watch: Movado (in silver)

Lip: Mac “Fashion Legacy” liquid lipcolour, Mac “Beet” lip pencil

This is certainly the type of dress you can throw on and instantly look amazing. By the way, I’m wearing it in a size 4. Many of the online reviewers rightly recommended sizing down. I usually size up to a 6 to fit my bottom-heavy frame in a silhouette like this one, but I didn’t have to.

To allow the dress to take center stage, I kept my jewelry simple but chic. My new handmade pieces by Simply Chic, a St. Louis-based jewelry line, were the perfect choices. How adorable are my hammered rectangle studs in rose gold? How in the world are these hand soldered earrings made with 14K rose gold filled wire only $30? If you’ve got stylish friends who have everything, I bet they would love a pair of these earrings.

Here’s a closer look at my mixed metal cuff bangles by Simply Chic as well. I’m wearing a rose gold, gold, and silver cuff. And, get this? They each retail for only $18! They’re priced to stack, y’all!

I deliberated about the shoes I’d wear. I was torn between the Sophia Webster floral pumps I’m wearing and my tangy yellow J.Crew jeweled suede pumps. I decided on the floral pumps to have some fun mixing prints. Wouldn’t the new striped Elsie bow-tie pumps be perfect for creating a mixed-print combination with the dress as well?

Have a wonderful Easter Weekend!
