My Outfit Monday: Easter color quagmire
It was Easter morning, and I was fully unprepared. I'd love to say I spent time dipping eggs in PAS goo and hiding little candy carrots around the house and whatever. But, real talk. I bought nary a chocolate egg for anyone I love, and I made nothing to contribute to the family meal. Holidays sneak up on me, and then it's all, "IT'S EASTER? WHAT?"
That morning, I thought the least I could do was try to dress festively. I grabbed a pale-pink tiered butterfly dress from Nordstrom Rack I bought on a huge clearance whim and only wore one other time. I put it on and looked like I was dead. Seriously, it goes against everything I know. It's kind of twee and a little too short, but mostly the color was way, way, way too close to my skin tone and washed me out completely.
Still, there was no time to over think it. I threw on an ancient green cardigan from New York and Company to bring some color up around my face. Here I am in the final ensemble, holding my "Easter basket" from my mom.
She's super-creative and doesn't like to give us things we don't really want (i.e. - a giant yellow plastic basket full of fake grass that will get stuck in the carpet). She gave us movie-themed jars with popcorn, candy, a DVD and AMC gift card. I'LL NEVER LIVE UP.
My fuchsia ballet flats (love) are the Lalee model from JS by Jessica Simpson. She really makes the best shoes. I'm wearing a big flower ring from Old Navy, but you can't really tell, because it also matches my skin. Fail, fail, fail. If I had to do it all again, I probably wouldn't.
What did you all wear this Easter? I hope you exercised pastels responsibly.
I'll leave you with this picture of my brother Jeremy's awesome homemade Storm Trooper Easter eggs. I can't even. I quit.
