WWW: JFE for Easter? (Edit: more options)

Ignore the hair - I played with curling it this morning, but I don't think I will tomorrow for Easter.

I'm playing with the idea of wearing booties with this skirt for Easter, and a black top seems to be the right choice, but I'm not sure this specific black top is - is it flattering enough?  I feel like it's a lot of volume going on....

I have other tees that I could try with this - should I?

Other suggestions?

This is a post-n-run - I'll be back in a few hours.

Edit:  Here's a few more options and combos, per suggestions.

#2 with a pink sweater (from the purge bag) and white sandals.

#3 blush sweater and white sandals

#4 tighter shirt, daintier shoes.

#5 White sparkle shirt, nude shoes

#6 White silver-stripe sweater, nude shoes

#7 Black narrower shirt (same as #4), different black shoes

#8 Black shirt (same as #4 and #7), but with the nude (they're actually a cream with gold sparkles) shoes.

What do you think?

    Pretty skirt, Amy!  I'm singing --- like, Handel, at the 6am and 9am service.  "I Know that My Redeemer Liveth?"  Jesus and I don't meet until at least mid-morning most days, but I'll do my best.  I test-drove my outfit today, too.

    I don't think it's too much volume, but it could use a bit more structure.  Do you have a black jacket?

  • Joy replied 4 years ago

    The proportions seem off. Can you tuck or half tuck the top? Pretty skirt. I need to think about what to wear. Our services start tonight (Easter Vigil, the highlight of the liturgical year and most come in dressy Easter garb).

  • merwoman replied 4 years ago

    You have awesome legs Amy - and what a great skirt for showing them off!

    Beth Ann has made some wise comments - and I am wondering about how that blush sweater might look? Might be too much volume, but it is so springy!

    I'm not keen on the footwear, as I find it too much contrast between your skin colour - but that could just be me. What other options do you have?

    Will you be hiding eggs for the kiddies??

  • Diane G replied 4 years ago

    I love your skirt. As for the top, I kind of want a tiny bit less length or a short structured jacket over it. I feel that maybe the proportions, for my eye at least, are just a smidge off.

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    I like the proportions of the top and skirt - very 2014. May I suggest a prettier shoe? 

  • Sharon replied 4 years ago

    I like it a lot, and I think the volume of the top looks good. I don't think I have seen you wear a skirt before, you look very pretty! I like the idea of booties or a shoe with a heel.

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    The skirt is lovely, Amy!! If you have a more refined and dainty shoe I think it would work great as is! 

  • amiable replied 4 years ago

    Thanks Ladies!  A better shoe is in order - I'll post pics when I have some....

  • Suz replied 4 years ago

    I really like #4 a lot!! 

  • Marley replied 4 years ago

    #4 is my fave. Followed closely by #1 - cuz I always like me a pair
    of booties!

  • amiable replied 4 years ago

    Thank you Suz and Marley - I'm inclined to go with #4 - even though I just added a few more options.

    I'm done trying on clothes for the evening :)  

    Thanks for all your help!

  • NDMom replied 4 years ago

    I think #4 looks beautiful. Have a happy Easter!

  • Sveta replied 4 years ago

    Surprisingly I like it best with the black top - somehow it allows the pretty skirt to be the star. Out of those shoes I prefer the nude ones but if you have even prettier shoes I wold love to see them too!

  • merwoman replied 4 years ago

    #4! Sweet dreams!!

  • shevia replied 4 years ago

    #4 or #7! Happy Easter!

  • Isis replied 4 years ago

    Another vote for #4 and I also like the shoes in #7!

    So pretty ; inspried to wear a flowery skirt for easter too!

  • Parsley replied 4 years ago

    Either #4 or #7 looks great. What a pretty skirt!
    Happy Easter to you and your family!

  • amiable replied 4 years ago

    Thank you Ladies!  I'll plan to wear #4

    Because Sveta suggested it - one more pic though - to me, the dark shirt needs dark shoes - am I mistaken?  Is this one better?

  • Windchime replied 4 years ago

    Another vote for #4. You look very pretty and spring-like.
    I'm so glad you posted this because you and I have very similar skirts planned for tomorrow, although mine is lime green, black, and white. I spent a good hour this afternoon getting my outfit figured out and, like you, eventually selected a black short-sleeved shirt and black ankle boots. I actually preferred mine with a black cardigan, but the church was uncomfortably warm when I was practicing there today (warmth a function of the heating system, not the weather!) Your #4 may inspire me to reach for ballet flats, instead of ankle boots. Happy Easter, Amy!

  • Jeanie replied 4 years ago

    I like #4 best. I'm inclined to agree with you that the black shirt somehow needs the black shoes.  Happy Easter!

  • AJ replied 4 years ago

    4 or 7 for the win!

    Happy Easter!

  • harmonica replied 4 years ago

    I think you nailed it in #4. Lovely skirt! I like how the black shoes bookend the top.

  • merwoman replied 4 years ago

    Back again Amy! Haven't changed my mind about #4 for the win, but to answer your question,  I think the nude shoes could work - it would depend on what arm candy (hand bag) or topper you are sporting.

  • LACeleste replied 4 years ago

    I think that outfit you chose is wonderful Amy! Very pretty!

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    I'm cheer leading for #4. You nailed it. Happy Easter. xo

  • rachylou replied 4 years ago

    Did you do #4? That's my belated pick (I also liked 2/3 after 4).
