WWW Easter?

I suppose, since it's tomorrow, that I'm a little late in thinking about what to wear for Easter.  Last night I tried on all my dresses, and picked these two as fitting well enough and being a little bit dressy for the occasion.  These pics make me see that I need to wear my other bra (it's a bit better fitting at the moment).

The pink dress is, I think, a bit more bodycon than I want.  The other dress makes my kids call me a dalmation, and I think the paint splash print is a little weird (and maybe dated?)

Is one of these a clear winner?  (And shoe preference?)

#1 paint splotch dress with navy sandals and shrug
#2 paint splotch dress with ballet flats and shrug
#3 paint splotch dress without shrug
#4 pink dress with shrug and ballet flats
#5 pink dress without shrug
#6 pink dress with nude-ish loafers

    I like both dresses actually but would go for #4 - it's hard to wrap my head around the fact that somebody can wear short sleeves and sandals! :)
    Happy Easter!

    I'm a fan of the pink dress!

    To throw a wrench I'm a fan of splotchy dress no. 2-3 (depending on whether you need the shrug for warmth.  Is the waist-band adjustable downwards?  I think the pink dress looks good too, but you mentioned that maybe it felt a little more evening/bodycon that you wanted.

    I am with rabbit. I like 2/3.  

    Oh, and if you are late to decide, I am even more late. I haven't given it a thought yet!! Ooops!!

    I much prefer the pink. Happy Easter. May the bunny be bountiful.

    I vote for pink. I like the look in No. 4. Happy Easter, Amy.

  • jacquie replied 5 years ago

    I vote for #3 with a bright colored purse!

    Thanks for weighing in everyone!

    It occurred to me that the weather will probably dictate not-bare legs.  So here's both with sheer black hose (the options are this or opaque black hose).

    I'm leaning toward the splotchy dress, and keeping the pink in mind for any wedding guest type events.  In a few pounds, the pink will feel better on me - it looks fine now in the pictures, but I feel like every little lump and ripple shows.  It may be just the way the dress is - I'm not really sure.  

    I added the black tank beneath the pink because I couldn't handle the low neckline, and I took in the waistband of the splotchy, because it was hanging lower than intended (the dress is a bit big for me on top).

    Feel free to change my mind - I'm not set in my ways, just leaning....

    Both are nice but I prefer the print dress, it looks elegant to me.
    Have a happy Easter.

    Another vote here for the print dress! And Happy Easter.

    Pink dress, #4. I do like the black and white print too, though. It's way to cold here to do bare legs, bare arms, or bare anything. I had a dress all picked out for church tomorrow, even went out today and bought a short sweater to wear with it, but unless I want to add tights and long underwear underneath, I'm going to freeze. I think I'm going to end up wearing pants (horrors!)!

    I like both but prefer the first without the shrug. Happy Easter!

  • rachylou replied 5 years ago

    The first with all the trimmings. If you have some button earrings that would make it more conventional.

    I'm probably too late, since it is already Easter Day, but I really love 4. on you. The dress is a gorgoeous colour, and I really like the way you have styled it with the shrug and ballet flats - lovely.

    Missed this yesterday, and I'm off to go get dressed myself.  Of the ones you added, I like #3 best!  Blessed Easter, Amy!

    Another one who is too late here, but really like the pink dress.  Happy Easter!
