Easter Outfit + A Shoe Review

Here's what I wore on Easter (better late than never!).  I haven't dressed up for Easter since I was a kid.  In fact, that was always my favorite part about Easter when I was younger.  My mom would take me shopping and I'd get a new dress and a new Easter bonnet every year! 
This year I decided I wanted to dress up for Easter even though we were just going over to my husband's grandpa's house to have a laid back Easter dinner with the fam.  I usually don't dress up for casual get togethers with the in-laws, so I could tell they were a little surprised at my ensemble!    When I first bought this dress on ebay, I imaged it would make a perfect dress for spring.  Check out my first attempt at styling this dress HERE.  This time I added more pops of spring colors with the cardigan, heels, and jewelry.  Spring color overload?  Perhaps....  Oh well, I definitely felt cheerful in this outfit!

Dress: Anthropologie Tulip Study Dress
Cardigan: The Limited
Belt: Anthropologie Crossroads Belt
Tights: Simply Vera for Kohl's
Shoes: BC Footwear Afterglow Pump in teal (here)
Necklace: Anthropologie Saturation Point Necklace
Earrings: via Etsy

I picked up these heels from last month during a sale.  I highly, highly recommend them!!!  First of all, I LOVE the teal color.  Even though they are a bright color, I'm finding they go with a lot! If teal isn't your thing, they also come in red, tan, black, or dark brown.  They are very reasonably priced ($60 on  Despite the low price, they are very well made and I can see them holding up well for a long time.  The stitching along the edge is a cute detail and I adore the stacked wooden heel.  The inside of the shoe even has a cute floral print lining!  In my opinion, the heel height is perfect (about 2.5 inches).  I found they fit true to size.  They are very comfortable and classic pumps. 

I hope this shoe review helped!  Are there any new spring shoes that you recommend?


  1. Love the necklace with the earrings, such a pretty combo!

  2. This is a fantastic Easter-appropriate ensemble! I adore the dress. Is it in stores now? That print is so charming! The shoes are a great pairing with it, too.

    I love dressing up for holidays. It has become a new tradition of mine.

  3. Thanks! No, the dress is from 2009. I missed it when it was in stores, so I found one on ebay several months ago. I love the print too!
