That Easter Dress

Hi Ya’ll

I don’t know about you, but I feel like these weeks are flying by! Where did Winter go? I have been super busy with work, family, and getting this blog up and started I feel like March came and went overnight. We finally were blessed with some warmer weather and sunshine this weekend after our first snow storm of the winter. Funny how that works, right?

It was my 28th birthday this past week as well and my husband continues to remind me that I am now in my “late” 20s. He bought my favorite Cabernet from a winery that we went to in Napa. You can read all about it here. He also took me to a Greek restaurant to reminisce on our honeymoon we took in June 2017, which was too sweet. The Greek food was nothing of comparison, but it is the thought that counts. I spent the rest of the day buying anti-aging product.

I tried to take advantage of the Target BOGO sale, however, it was definitely a disappointment. If you saw my Instagram story, you have already heard my rant. The selection was horrible and the sizing is all over the place! The selection of dresses was also not that great. I felt like everything was designed for teenagers. That may be me channeling a grouchy old lady.  You know, since I’m now in my “late 20s.” They had very cute skirts, but of course nothing available in my size. I did find $20 high rise distressed shorts, which will be in rotation this summer, but I would advise trying them on in store. If you have assets of any kind, you’ll have to size up 2 sizes.

This dress that I am wearing here is from Target and the perfect Easter dress. It is on trend with a ruffle hem & sleeve, length appropriate, and this perfect shade of green. It also has this checkered detailing that is not too much in your face. I paired it with my go to Jeffery Campbell wedges that sold out, but I’ve linked a similar version below.

I’ve also listed a couple of other options  for your Easter weekend.

XO, Katie

Rock the Ruffle..No really, do it.

Okay Ladies. You know the obnoxious ruffle detailing you see on the runway from NYFW and PFW? If not, please google ruffles NYFW and you will know exactly what I am talking about. I think you could agree with me that ruffle overload look is not appropriate for work, chasing your kids around, or running to the grocery store. The last thing my husband wants is to be seen with me looking like some sort of morph dinosaur walking into Wegmans. And quite frankly, I’m not that fabulous to be wearing anything that outrageous…

You’re probably thinking, Katie, this ruffle trend has been around for a couple of years now. Why are you talking about it???

1. This ruffle look is also NOT GOING AWAY. It is here to stay and I am here to help you not only nail this look but give you a few options below. First, we can buy pretty much any clothing item that has ruffles on it. Did you know that you can buy underwear with ruffles on it? I don’t know about you, but the last thing I need is something that bunches up down there. Anyway, back to this topic. You can buy ruffles for all apparel. Blouses, skirts, dresses, shoes, swimwear, lingerie. You name it, I bet I can find it with ruffle detailing.

2. I can promise you, ruffles are going to be huge for swimwear this summer. So, I’ve linked some cute swimwear items below. Ruffle detailing included 🙂

I have a ton of shirts and blouses with ruffle detailing. I love the shirt that I am wearing today. It is casual but doesn’t make me look like I rolled out of bed. Let’s be real, I am always aiming for that look. And it’s Friday, so casual it is. One last thing is I felt like wearing mustard, because it matches the weather today. Sunny, but windy as ****. Therefore, mustard it is. BTW. Sorry for blinding you with my paleness.
