Wearing: Easter Brunch Buttoned Down
Since we have about a week to go before Easter Sunday, I thought I'd show you the casual, comfortable, and Spring-y (is that a word?) outfit I put together for a little Easter outfit inspiration. This is actually one of the two different posts because it's just too fun to style this brightly colored blazer. This bubblegum pink blazer from Gap is a couple of years old since I last wore it but the color and the style is a timeless look for spring. Today it's Easter brunch ready with a classic and clean white button down.
If you celebrate Easter, you have to admit that it's a difficult holiday. Your family might do a full Easter dinner similar to Christmas or Thanksgiving or they might have a brunch right after Easter mass or services. There might be an Easter egg hunt for the kids, like my husband's family, or you'll exchange Easter baskets or just spend time as a family. In the past, basically since I was a little girl, I always picked out a spring dress to wear on Easter Sunday. The Easter dress tradition is my favorite but has one problem: comfort. The light cotton dresses on sale for Easter are gorgeous in all their pastel glory but Easter Sunday can either be pleasantly warm or pretty frosty. Sometimes I have tights to throw on but often they're completely wrecked from countless wear over the winter. The other issue is wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles. There are only so many miracles that wrinkle release formula can perform.
My solution is wearing a pretty top with my most comfortable skinny jeans and demure heels. While I'll probably swap out the jeans for a skirt earlier in the day for church, they'll be easy enough to slip on and keep me comfortable all day. The button down and blazer pair go a long way to make this outfit look put together for a day spent with family.
Whether it's brunch, dinner, or an egg hunt, a brightly colored blazer is the perfect Easter outfit. Tomorrow I'll share how I give this outfit even more personality with a pop of pattern!
