“Easter dress.” — what comes to mind? For me, it’s too much fabric, too much lace and too much frill. When I was younger, I hated putting on a special, too fancy frock for Easter — after all, my brothers didn’t have a dumb dress to put on. How was I supposed to keep up in the egg hunt with all of the layers of my ‘you-only-have-to-wear-it-once-a-year’ dress? This tomboy was never wearing an Easter dress by choice…. until dressing for Easter (and every other occasion) became something I looked forward to.

Admittedly, this isn’t the same traditional garb I was forced into each year, but instead it’s my interpretation of an Easter-appropriate ensemble. It’s demure and feminine, yet spunky. The floral skirt is ladylike, but short enough to steer clear of frumpy. And I’m dying over the details of the blouse: mint green (hello spring!), sheer sleeves with polka dot texture and fabric-covered buttons down the back. Nude sandals elongate the leg, gold accessories bring subtle sophistication and a bright fuchsia lip reads sassy.

I’m excited to spend this low-key holiday with family and most of all, Suede.
