Daily outfit and style tips, wearing pink jacket, bows and flower dress
Has anyone seen my basket?

I’ve been dying to wear this dress forever but I had to wait for Easter first. It’s really just my silly rule, but I can’t make myself wear it before then, it’s got Easter written all over it.

Just look at the explosion of pinks and blues, the little flowers and bows, I practically feel gift-wrapped. It qualifies as what my friend would refer to as “cutesy pie”. It is.

Hey, what’s over the fence?

This morning’s photo session was captured with a healthy mix of haste and humor. I begged the hubby to quickly take the pictures before getting in the car. Our haste made for bad photo after bad photo, you just can’t rush a good thing. Silliness ensued. He specifically directed these poses and they were too much fun not to share.

I <3 big rings!

He said I looked like a little kid. The big plastic heart ring probably didn’t help. I just needed oversized bunny ears to complete the look.

This dress is has got a lot going on: Flowers, pinks, blues bows and more bows. Between the details and the structure of this dress it would be easy for it to feel too formal for work. To keep it light and fresh, I went with floral lace and fishnet tights in a pale beige, flat casual shoes and a fun, bright pink corduroy jacket. The effect was perfect for a sunny spring day.

Bows dress/ModCloth, floral lace and fishnet tights/DKNY, pink corduroy jacket/thrifted, flat casual shoes/Naturalizer, red heart ring/H&M. Note: I would not recommend this particular style from DKNY. They gave me what I can only describe as a “sausage legs” effect. The elasticity of the weave was not consistent and pinched into my skin, even throughout the less fleshy parts. I have other similar tights from Nordstrom’s that fit much better.

    I do that too! I’ll save a dress for a certain seasonal occasion, in fact I had a yellow, and pastel number I would only wear around easter sunday. It was such a ’60′s church going outfit if you know what I mean..frothy and ridiculous and wonderful at once. The print of your dress is super sweet. I’d doll it up Dolly-kei style. Get yourself some white go-go boots and keep going with the accessories and I’ll meet you for tea in Japantown. xo. -Bella Q
