Spring is here and I’m loving the sunny 70 degree California weather, it’s the perfect weather for a white eyelet dress with a pop of colorful accessories. I saw this dress at Zara for under $50 and knew I had to have it to wear on Easter. It’s perfect for Easter brunch and I’ll show in “Part 2” blog post how to pair it with completely different accessories to make it a darker edgier look. Check back on Monday for that post. One dress two ways makes dressing up so fun with all my different accessories. I may or may not have an addiction to accessories. When I recently purchased my Steve Madden yellow chunky heels I knew I would wear them with EVERYTHING! They also come in 5 other colors but the yellow was calling my name. My big statement necklace is from Baublebar , it’s a little Mr. T (who I love) but the bigger the better, right?!  My neon pink Kate Spade handbag was a great find from my local consignment shop, it doesn’t have to be brand new to be amazing. I have a collection of sunhats that I love to throw on to complete a look but  most importantly protect my face from the sun. When I was little I always had to have my Easter bonnet and why should that have to change now? No matter how old I’ve been I’ve always wanted to accessorize. Accessories can easily elevate your outfit and helps add your own style to a simple dress, like I did here. What does your Easter day wardrobe look like?

Anyone that knows me knows that I have an obsession with denim shirts. I have a section in my closet with several shirts all denim but different fits, weights and light to dark in color. I feel a denim shirt goes with everything,  and I mean everything! If you ask any of my coworkers they’ll  say I wear a denim shirt at least once a week, okay maybe twice. The thing with denim shirts is you can dress it up and dress it down. I chose to dress it up here with a striped statement skirt and patent leather red pumps. MEOW! The red pumps are super sexy and add a pop of color to any outfit, they’re my go to date night shoes. I love this outfit because you can wear to work and right out to happy hour after. If you don’t feel comfortable with bright red pumps at work then I would change the shoe to a black wedge or simple black pump. But don’t you think it’s fun to step out of you comfort zone?
