Easter Egg

Easter is traditionally a Christian observance, but the time of year originally referred to a Pagan festival that welcomed Spring using symbols of fertility, like eggs.

With the idea of festivity in mind, as well as the need to deviate from the popular palette of Springtime pastels, I put together this outfit to look forward to the warmer days ahead as well as playing with the frills, as a nod to the frivolity and femininity of this time of year.

I love that the print on the skirt is not floral, as one would expect in a Spring-time outfit. I picked out the pinky-corals in the leopard print in the ruffled top, which I'd wear tucked in at the waist.

Those sharp, graphic black earrings keep the frills from becoming too girlie and the gold coral-shaped necklace tones nicely with the top, as well as adding a twist that its shape and the top's colour synchronise.

I'd wear some black and gold pop socks along with the nude heels, unless of course its raining, in which case I'd ditch the suede peep toes for something a little more suitable, like some black patent ankle boots with a cone heel.

Happy Easter/ Spring Festival everybody! I'm going to be away for a few days as I travel about meeting and greeting with relatives and friends, so have a great time and I'll be back next week!

What you said is so true. I absolutely love the silk chiffon ruffle sleeve top and its colour, and and the frilly Dakota skirt. They are so feminine!

Happy Easter to you, Emily! I usually associate Easter wear with those candied pastels, and lots of least that what my mom made me wear when I was a wee chick-a-dee. I like the shoes ALOT, and the idea of wearing dark socks with them suits me fine!

Big Yes to those shoes with a sock! Funk it up.... Well, it's already nicely funky, but you know what I mean.
