Well, so I started with a simple idea for Easter. I would wear my new J Crew gateau skirt with the sun yellow silk-linen vneck sweater.

Reality set in. Baby, it's cold outside! Ok, switch gears... Navy cashmere sweater, bright yellow bib necklace to brighten it up, and white trouser jeans. Spring-y but still warm. And I don't have to be *that* dressed up for church if I so choose. (See... when I put this together last night I seriously thought I would be wearing it.)

Then hubby got dressed and went with a sport coat, so I really felt like I should go with a dress or skirt.

There was no way I was going in bare legs, since I am always cold. So I threw this together, which I wore to a cocktail party for Valentine's Day (went with more subdued make up, obviously, and swapped patent pumps for black flats).
I love this dress. It feels so Tory Burch-ish to me. I plan on living in it later this summer with my flat black sandals. The material is a little stretchy, nice and light. And E thought it was a good choice because, in her words, "the middle looks kind of like Easter". I'm not sure what that means, but ok.
And I got to wear my Target ribbon-pearl necklace, which is always a fun piece. IRL pic at right.
Then after we came home, I was actually still chilly from the Easter Egg hunt at church, and we were just doing dinner at home, so I swapped the church outfit for the navy cashmere femme sweater and the yellow necklace - just with jeans and red flats.

Much warmer, and still semi-festive, or at least the necklace is. I do admit that I put on boots to walk Lucy because it was windy, too. I am *such* a wimp. This is the perfect outfit for chilling on the sofa, watching golf, maybe taking a little catnap.
Have you ever napped to golf? Especially when it's cold outside? And all the sound, from the announcers to the crowd noises, is all so soothing and and slow and relaxing? And it's always sunny and pretty and warm on the TV? It's the best. Golf naps are always so refreshing!
Happy Easter to all!!
