Ok, this is my last Easter outfit for this year, but it may be my favorite.  As you saw yesterday, it’s not what I wore on Easter Sunday (although I did wear this dress for Easter last year).  Instead, I wore this outfit to work the last day before the holiday (who says we can only celebrate once?).

I’ve told you before that I derive inspiration from a lot of different things.  For this outfit, I was inspired by Easter eggs.  Literally, I woke up one day last week thinking, “I want to look like an Easter egg!”.  So, I searched my closet for something bright and colorful, came up with this Old Navy cardigan, added the dress (also from Old Navy by way of the thrift store), and completed the look with off-white shoes, a soft lavender necklace, my charm bracelet, and simple diamond studs (by diamond, I of course mean CZ’s).

I do have pink shoes that match the dress very well and always garner me a lot of compliments.  However, I don’t believe in being that matchy-matchy.  Although it’s sometimes an act of will for me to pass up such close matches, I knew I had enough color going on.  To add anymore would have made me look like a carnie. Easter egg I can handle (and people did tell me I looked like one – mission accomplished!), but a carnie is just going too far.
