Easter always sneaks up on me. But now that I know it’s this Sunday (don’t worry; I’ve known it for a while!), I’m spending time each day preparing my heart for this meaningful Christian holiday. First and foremost, Easter is a day to celebrate the risen Lord. In fact, I have a special Easter video that I’ve prepared for you. And I can’t wait to share it with you later this week. But today we’re sticking with fashion, and I’m sharing what I’m wearing this Easter.
Obviously, this pretty blue shirtdress may just be wishful thinking. Ha! Raise your hand if you’ve ever had snow on Easter. Me! And that was when I lived in the deep south. So who knows if I’ll actually get to wear this 100% cotton sash-tied dress. Right now our forecast is 72 degrees and sunshine, so I’m planning for blue skies and blue dress!
This dolman sleeve shirtdress features all the niceties I love in a good spring and summer dress: a removable, wide sash that’s easy to tie, luxuriously soft cotton fabric and on-seam pockets that don’t add visual weight at the hips. And the softly cuffed dolman sleeves sit off of the arms for a flattering effect.
My Biscayne blue cardigan is a perfect match, so I’ll carry it along to ward off the chill in the church or restaurant. But a simple white cardigan would work well here, too.
I’ll confess that I forgot to wear a slip the day we snapped these photos, but I sure was wishing I had one on. Ha! So I’ll be wearing my Commando fitted slip under this single layer dress on Sunday. Other than that unseen change, I think I’ll be wearing this exact combination (weather cooperating!). I think the Madewell vintage beige mule sandals work perfectly with this sweet dress, creating a long leg and adding just a touch of height. I purchased them last year, but they’re still available.
I’ve been swinging back and forth on the pendulum when it comes to jewelry lately. Some days I go very minimal (which is quite in!) and others I layer on the bling (which is also on trend). Here I’ve layered on Talbots’ signature enamel bangles (similar) that I’ve collected over the years as well as several Kendra Scott necklaces. I’m wearing the baroque pearl necklace along with demi multi strand necklace. And aren’t these ditsy floral hoop earrings darling? I know I’ll be wearing them frequently through the summer.
I’m also wearing my Nordgreen watch. I think it really elevates any outfit and is versatile enough to wear with anything. (Use code KAYHRMS to receive 15% off your order.) My sunglasses are old from Talbots. But the key is simply to choose frames that flatter your face and add value rather than detract from your outfit.
I’ll definitely be carrying my Dune straw satchel from Brighton. Honestly, this is the bag I’ll be carrying every day this spring and summer unless I just think something else works better in that instance. A classic straw bag adds an unmistakable taste of summer to any outfit. I’ve found that you get what you pay for with straw bags. And I have owned much cheaper ones. But the differences are substantial. I do think this white leather lined straw satchel at Macy’s is a great economical option.
I’ll be attending our more contemporary worship service on Sunday and then going out for brunch with James and another couple. I look forward to being with my church family. In fact, we’re serving brownies and coffee outside between the services that day, too. If you can’t go to church on Sunday, I invite you to watch our service on YouTube at 11 a.m. EDT. But I really hope you get to be with your church family, too.

Blessed for My Day
It still amazes me that Jesus, the sinless Savior, carried all of my sin to the cross and died on my behalf. What grace! What mercy! What love! That gracious gift compels me to want to live a life that pleases God, one that honors Him. And while I so often fall short, I gladly try to line up my life with God’s character and ways each day.
That’s the best way we can say thank you for the gift of our salvation. We can live a life that reflects His character to the world around us. We can selflessly love those around us even when it is hard. And we can forgive those who wound us, even if they do not act repentant. Following Jesus’ example is hard. But such a gift compels us to try.
He made Him who knew no sin to be sin in our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:21
