Pops of Color vs. Pastels


Easter has come and gone and I’m just now really waking up from my sugar/carb coma, to share my Easter OOTD. Like many families, we ALWAYS take family pictures on the major holidays: Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter… so that we’ll have memories to cherish for years to come. While I LOVE and dress specifically for these occasions, sometimes (like when you’re 29 weeks pregnant) that can put a major stress on selecting the right outfit for the day.


I tend to go shopping for the holiday at least a week or two before the holiday, to give me time to figure out the right shoes & accessories for the ensemble. While traditionally, I dive head first into pastels like mint, blush, and lavender for Easter, this year I found a floral dress in pop colors that was so beyond perfect in the way it fit, I had to make it work for Easter.


This floral dress from Express has great strap details on the back, and great pops of passionate pinks & neons throughout the navy & creme base colors of the dress. The shift fit has been PERFECT for my pregnancy thus far, and the chiffon material was wonderfully light and breezy while we were outdoors hunting for eggs in the Florida heat. For non-mommas, this dress would be wonderful done casually with a denim jacket and some espadrille wedges, but I like that it stands apart on it’s own with just minimal accessories. It also has a SLIGHT (this is important because I’m not sold 100% on the “trend” factor) hi-low hem, bringing the otherwise all 70’s shift dress into this modern era.


I styled this look with a simple turquoise necklace from House of Harlow 1960 (my fav, I wear this ALL the time), marbled studs from The Limited, and fabulous lace-up flats. Grab the Look here on ShopStyle Collective.

Passionate Pinks & Neon Yellows,
