As Easter approaches, it’s time to start thinking about that perfect outfit to celebrate the occasion. Whether you’re attending church, a family gathering, or a festive brunch, finding the right Easter dress can set the tone for a memorable day. With so many styles, colors, and options available, it can be overwhelming to choose. But fear not! This guide will walk you through what to look for in an Easter dress to ensure you shine brightly on this special day.

  1. Color Palette:
  • Easter is synonymous with pastel colors, symbolizing the freshness and vibrancy of spring. Think soft pinks, baby blues, mint greens, and sunny yellows. These hues complement the season and add a touch of elegance to your ensemble. However, if pastels aren’t your style, don’t hesitate to opt for bolder shades like coral, lavender, or teal, as long as they evoke the spirit of renewal and joy.
  1. Fabric Selection:
  • Choosing the right fabric is crucial for both comfort and style. Light, breathable fabrics such as cotton, linen, chiffon, or silk are ideal for warmer weather and exude an air of gracefulness. Look for dresses with lining to prevent sheerness and ensure a smooth silhouette. Additionally, consider the texture of the fabric – delicate lace, subtle embroidery, or gentle ruffles can add whimsy and charm to your Easter look.
  1. Length and Silhouette:
  • The length and silhouette of your Easter dress should align with your personal style and the formality of the occasion. Opt for knee-length or midi dresses for a classic and sophisticated look suitable for church services or family gatherings. If you prefer a more relaxed vibe, a maxi dress with a flowy skirt can offer comfort and elegance. Pay attention to the neckline as well – whether you prefer a modest high neck, a playful sweetheart neckline, or a trendy off-the-shoulder style, choose what makes you feel confident and beautiful.
  1. Details and Embellishments:
  • It’s the little details that can elevate a simple dress to a standout ensemble. Look for dresses adorned with intricate embroidery, delicate lace overlays, or subtle embellishments like pearls or sequins. These embellishments can add dimension and visual interest to your outfit without overwhelming the overall look. Additionally, consider dresses with interesting back details, such as keyhole cutouts or bows, for a touch of unexpected charm.
  1. Versatility:
  • While it’s essential to find a dress that’s perfect for Easter festivities, why not choose one that can be versatile enough for other occasions as well? Select a dress that can easily transition from day to night by swapping out accessories or layering with a jacket or cardigan. Investing in a dress that you can wear beyond Easter ensures that you’ll get more mileage out of your purchase and makes it a practical addition to your wardrobe.
  1. Comfort and Fit:
  • Last but certainly not least, prioritize comfort and fit when choosing your Easter dress. Ensure that the dress fits you well in all the right places, accentuating your curves while allowing for ease of movement. Pay attention to sizing charts and measurements, as different brands may have varying size standards. Remember, when you feel comfortable in what you’re wearing, your confidence will shine through, making you the belle of the Easter ball!

In conclusion, finding the perfect Easter dress is all about striking the right balance between style, comfort, and personal expression. By considering factors such as color palette, fabric selection, length and silhouette, details and embellishments, versatility, and comfort and fit, you can confidently select a dress that reflects your unique taste and celebrates the joyous spirit of Easter. So go ahead, embrace the season’s festivities in style, and let your Easter dress be a reflection of your radiant spirit!

Wearing red seems a little cliche right now, but I’m loving this new to me shade of red. This shirt dress also comes in a maxi long version but I opted for a shorter version to pair them with tall boots. Have you tried a shirt dress? They’re incredibly flattering for many different body types.

Love this moroccan blue with gold dress for holiday events. I wore it when we were in Watercolor, FL, and it was so flowy and flattering. Are you invited to a holiday event? This one is perfect. Add a belt, or use the ribbon belt.

Happy November!

What are your plans for the Fourth? The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. good food, friends, and a chilly evening watching the fireworks. And maybe a day to sleep in? Levi hasn’t been the greatest sleeper but maybe he too will get the hint that its a holiday weekend. 2 years ago we went to the San Marino fireworks display at Lacy Park. While it was beautiful, scenic and fun to be with friends, never again! One of our friend’s daughter went missing and it was too many people to keep track of our then 4 children. So since last year, we started a tradition of watching the fireworks at Lake Arrowhead. Some of you know we have an A Frame we renovated here that we rent out. This year, we look forward to 4 days of clean mountain air at Lake Arrowhead. We can’t wait! Let’s transition to an upcoming sale in 11 days!!

What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?

It is a HUGE sale on Fall new arrivals. Those who have the card, get “early access” because hot items always sell out first. Everything from booties to coats are up to 40% off. I still have these rag + bone booties I got from the sale 40% off retail that I still wear and LOVE. HERE is a sneak peek of the sale.

Don’t forget, my shop page is open 24/7, you can follow me on the free Liketoknow.it app “shalicenoel” for quick links, and you can always “shop my instagrams.”

Also, FYI start preparing now for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! 1. Become a cardholder. I did this 2 years ago just to enter the sale early access and I’m SO glad I did. Sign up now for a $60 note! That is basically free money and a gift card to spend on whatever. Like that La Mer lotion you’ve been eying. 2. This sale is on NEW ARRIVALS. That is why this sale is SUCH A BIG DEAL. I literally get butterflies in my stomach nervous happy just thinking about it. It begins July 12, and be sure to follow my newsletter, Instagram and blog. I will aim to publish my blog post will my favorites from the sale from beauty devices to best in sale heels, boots and flats, at 12:30am, July 12. I don’t sleep much that day, haha. But it’s worth it. I still love the rag + bone boots I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale about 40% off retail. Now that’s worth a little loss of sleep.

Anthropologie is having their 20% off everything sale, so I’m making a rare weekend appearance here on the blog to tell you. Anthropologie has been a long time favorite of mine from unique shoes, to throws for the cabin, gorgeous couches, and perennial favorite dresses. Did you know, one of me and Reid’s first dates was at his roommate’s wedding? I was wearing a black Anthropologie dress and so beautiful. Amazing how a good dress can put you in a good mood. Ironically, I caught the bouquet that summer night and we were married the following spring. So, is Anthropologie a perennial favorite of mine for around 20 years? Absolutely. Scroll down for some of my hand picked favorites for 20% off today. Which are your favorites?

I’m loving the ever versatile SLIP DRESS. It’s the answer to what to wear to a wedding, date night, concert, baby shower, birthday bash or you fill in the blank. I LOVE the fit. Here I’m wearing a small. It is a snug fit, flattering v-neck, and long flowy 100% silk material. After all, the dress is inspired by the Bar Silk Shirt. Did I mention it was super comfortable? Levi left his mark towards the end of the day and spit up on it. I wiped it clean and will take it to the dry cleaners on Monday. I should have it by humpday, just in time for the weekend to style it with a knotted graphic tee and sneakers. Because it’s all about versatility.

Here are 5 ways to style a slip dress:

  1. Knotted graphic tee
  2. Cropped sweater
  3. Blazer
  4. Knit cardigan
  5. Leather jacket under $200! or Vegan Leather Jacket (with cool moto details)
