Easter Sunday Outfit

“And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.”  1 Cor. 6:14

While Easter is about the resurrection of Jesus and celebrating the arise of new life, first world culture still places significance on Easter appeal. Whether it be from the brunch too a Sunday service there is an unspoken dress code for an Easter outfit.

The first unspoken word is to wear a softer color. Particularly, a pastel color works wonders. The popular color of the spring season is yellow. However, I wore a light pastel pink dress. I also saw multiples of lavender and baby blues throughout the day.

In the same fashion, a spunky print is also recommend. Polka dots and stripes were common due to the 2018 trend. Yet, the season classic and staple is to wear a floral pattern. Simple floral patterns that are stunning are daisy and roses. Also stitched outlines of flowers add an elegant touch. In my dress I had embroidered flowers and butterflies adorning the dress.

Likewise, length actually matters. On Easters mini skirts and bodycon dresses should be avoided. A general guideline is to follow a business casual protocol, especially if you are going to be in attendance for a church service. A mid-thigh for skirts and dress length is a general standard for the holiday event. For those that are petite like me, an often struggle with this unspoken rule, can wear a shorter trim line skirt with mesh extending the length protocol. This is what I did with my dresses skirt line. The actual dress was shorter, yet the mesh was longer.

Notably, the last unspoken rule is shoes. While, I’m a fan of funky and edgy shoes that often make my outfit pop, I choose to follow the monday wardrobe capsule. A plain pair of heels that didn’t exceed 3 inches. I went with a pair of rounded nude heels. Similarly, white, grey, navy, or black heels would work as well.

 

Valentines Daytime Outfits

If your still in school or in an environment where you can’t wear your most romantic ensemble there is no need to stress. You can still look chic and cute before your evening plans.  Just match a cute skirt with a nice blouse or body suite.

Notably, Valentines day falls on a Wednesday so I’ll be stuck wearing scrubs to class. So, I’m wearing one of my Hello Kitty heart printed scrub tops with a pair of red scrub pants.

This is a step up from my normal plain grey and blue scrubs I wear daily. However, if I was in another school environment like my undergraduate courses I would wear something pink and flirty.

For most students and workers you can opt for a simple skirt and top. The outfit I wore today is a great example.  The pink corduroy mini skirt from Forever 21 is a wonderful staple for the outfit. I then paired it with a floral embroidered mesh body suite with frill sleeves form Francesca’s. As for shoes I added my basic chunky black heels with silver studs.

The skirt showed off my legs and the body suite was form-fitting. The pink and floral embroidery enhanced the romantic theme of the outfit. Thus, creating a romantic daytime look.
