Easter - What to Wear?

Okay, I will warn you up front that this is a picture heavy post. I went a little crazy on styling outfits for Easter as I just can not decide what to wear!  I have so much to consider for what outfit will work the best for me. First, we have church in the morning followed by brunch out with family. Second, we have an Easter egg hunt and Third, there is dinner at my in-laws house and then their will be plenty of relaxing!  

The thing is that through all of this I will be chasing after a one year old and tending to my 3 other older boys.  I want to be comfortable (not in a binding dress or skirt or super high heels), but I also really enjoy dressing up a bit in celebration! Resurrection Sunday is a big deal and certainly worthy of some dressing up :)

So in an attempt to not spend all morning before church on Sunday trying on clothes and piling them on my bed, I have assembled a few outfits that I will choose from.  And they are: 


 Joe Fresh Dress via JCP (sold out online but maybe still available in stores?) / JCP Knit Pink Blazer / Floral Print Scarf via Target / Banana Republic Nude Pumps / Nine West Cross Body / Stella & Dot Rebel Pendant / Bubble Necklace via Ebay (J.Crew look alike)

I really love this Joe Fresh dress. Super feminine and pretty (and it was only $59!!). Great fit, great length and great weight. It is heavier than it looks which makes it a good choice for Easter weekend here since we are still struggling to be in the 50s. LOVE this color pink in the jacket. I also love the scarf, but torn between it and the bubble necklace that I love with this for the fun "easter egg" colors it brings together :) Had to go with the nude pumps here because the fun sandals I would love to wear I think would just leave my toes too cold. The heels are low enough on these that they are super comfortable for all day, too!


Gianni Bini Notch Collar Jacket / Joe Fresh Print Pocket Dress via JCP (also comes in pinks/corals!) / Stella & Dot Rebel Pendant / Banana Republic nude pumps

The jacket with this one isn't quite as bright in person, but it really is a beautiful stand out color. The fit and weight of the jacket is so luxurious, too. I splurged a little on this one, but it was so worth it!  This Joe Fresh dress is a great length (not too short) and such a comfortable fit. I also paired it with the nude pumps for comfort and so that the shoes weren't competing with this print and color. 


Banana Republic Coral Crepe Dress (on sale now 30% off!) / Floral Scarf via TJ Maxx (current) / F21 Creme fabric and gold Moto Jacket (similar here) / Stella & Dot Rebel Pendant / Nine West Cross Body bag

Love the fit of the dress although it is definitely more orange than coral.  I really think that the jacket and scarf lend well to the dress and cool down the color a bit.  Again, flattering length of the dress which is a must for me!

 So what do you think?  Have a favorite?  What are you wearing for Easter sunday?  Do you dress up or stay casual?  I would LOVE to hear from all my readers!

Happy Good Friday everyone!!! 



  1. All of these outfits are great! I haven't really thought of what to wear for Easter yet.

  2. Hi Jessy, all the outfits are very nice. But my favorite is the third No. Just as I have also introduced my Easter outfit :)

  3. My favorite is the first one! I love how you added the scarf and the rebel pendant. That is a favorite look of mine...the scarf and long necklace look.
    I think I'm going to stay casual...maybe my pink skinnys, polka dot blouse and my jean jacket...add heels. For me, it's a lazy family day with lots of wine and food:-) Maybe I'll put on a dress for church and change when I get home.
    Have a fabulous Easter, my friend!
    XO, Gina

  4. I feel like you can't go wrong with any of these looks! But I will say my personal favorite is the Joe Fresh dress with the pink blazer. I just have a thing for white and pink together. I know what you mean about the weather though! I don't know if Chicago will even hit 50 tomorrow. Come on spring!!

    1. I always follow fellow bloggers that are following me via GFC! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon :)

  6. Thanks, Ladies! So I did end up wearing the first choice - seemed most "Eastery" to me and I got a ton of compliments. I literally wore the dress all day (no changing into more comfy clothes after church as per usual) and it was extremely comfy and easy to wear. I would recommend adding this one to your closets :)
