Ensemble: Easter Sunday

For Easter this year, I tagged along with the boyfriend and his family to church and then out to brunch.          I haven't managed to make it to church in quite a while, but whenever I do go it feels like home.  Which was weird in this particular case since I've never been to their church before, and I grew up a different denomination.

Getting dressed for Easter always seems like the ultimate excuse to get a little dressed up and look super spring-y.  It was nice enough on Sunday that I could rock bare legs for the first time this year!


Dress and Cardi - Loft / Shoes - Payless / Belt - H&M (old, similar here) / Bracelet and Watch - Michael Kors / Necklace - Stella & Dot

For anyone who doesn't believe it's actually windy in Chicago, here's your proof:


This wasn't even a particularly windy day.  This is just my standard look when I walk around outside, often accompanied by tears from the sun and wind.  The boyfriend says other people must always think we're in a fight because there are always tears in my eyes.  Side effect of living a stone's throw away from Lake Michigan I guess.


The wind is always fun though when you're wearing a swingy dress.  Big skirts like this always make me feel super feminine.  This dress is definitely my new favorite, now I just need to find more excuses to wear it!  

Do you still dress up for Easter?

  2. I love the shape of your dress and that colorblocked cardigan has such pretty colors! I know exactly what you mean about your eyes tearing from the wind...I'm only a block from the ocean so it gets pretty windy here too.
