Easter Look.

ImageImageImageImage

After yet another week of slacking on the blog, here’s an Easter flashback to last weekend where I spent a beautiful day down in Manhattan Beach with my boyfriend and his family. We went to sunrise Easter service on the beach at 6:30am (!!!!!), napped of course, had an adult Easter egg hunt which turned out pretty awesome, and ate too much as usual. Fun times.

I’ve posted before on how I like to dress a touch above casual for holidays, since I think they are special days of the year, so for this fun day of beautiful spring weather I chose this loose and breezy, retro-print dress. It was really too warm for the fur vest, but I tossed it on for one shot anyway. You all know my take on being casual and comfortable when having holiday lunches with the family, so this dress’s loose and comfortable fit was perfect for the food and activities of the day. Paired with comfortable booties for the boho vibe, it was a fun and manageable outfit perfect for spring! :)

I am no stranger to color in my wardrobe, and I always encourage people to give up their safety net of neutrals and solids when shopping. Branch out. Buy something you would normally pass over. For some of you this might be a big step, so maybe start lower-priced. Like Tobi.com or Forever 21. Mixing color uniquely really doesn’t take as much talent as people think it does, and you’ll know by looking at it if it works or not. This year, the jade and emerald green shades were everywhere, almost so much that they became a neutral for me in my wardrobe. For this 60s inspired outfit today, I pulled out the wide leg flares, a fur vest, and lots of color. Can’t go wrong with florals and fur! If Jane Birkin and Janis Joplin could do it, so can we.
