Lilly & Kate for Easter Brunch

Share It:

Welcome back! It's been a while - sorry for my absence - I was lounging around over spring break and had to hit the ground running once I got back. I want to share my Easter outfit with you and a few of my favorite spring trends - like mid-length skirts, bright bold colors, and stripes.

I grew up in a family that always made celebrating Easter a priority. We would get new clothes in pastel colors and get all dressed up to head to morning Mass. We would do Easter egg hunts and Easter baskets and a big brunch. Later on, we started going to the Easter Vigil Mass the night before. My little brother and I would do readings or participate in the service some other way.

As a college student, Easter has become less and less of a focus as the years have gone by. This time around, my boyfriend and I met my extended family at the Cathedral in downtown Richmond and went to Kitchen on Cary for brunch - it was a lovely morning with perfect weather and great company :)

But back to why we're here - what did I wear

The full Lilly skirt I have on here felt kind of fifties-inspired, my $9 earrings from Francesca's looked like Kate Spade (I couldn't find them online, sorry!), and my bright almost-neon accents brought Kate to mind as well.

Unfortunately, I don't have a photo to do my accessories justice - I had to connive my boyfriend into taking these on our way back to the car after brunch (what an angel) and didn't want to push my luck.

For spring and summer, I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for full, knee or mid-length skirts in bright colors to pair with tops like this one - stripes are always a good idea! I think a chambray button up (no surprise there) would have worked, as well.

Have any tips on where to find more skirts like this one? Please share!

  1. I love Kate Spade - she is my absolutely favorite designer! I blog about the brand quite often on my blog as well - www.ellevj.com
