Fun new looks to show off for Easter

With an early holiday, stylish new jackets could be a good option

I can vividly remember laying out my clothes the night before in anticipation.  To this day, I still like to purchase a new outfit for the holiday.  (It pleases my husband that I will not be swayed from this time-honored tradition, you can be sure!)  However, because Easter is so early this year and Mother Nature hasn’t quite gotten her act together with spring like temperatures, I’m thinking that a pretty jacket might make a sensible choice.

My new favorite fashion website is Zara (the actual store is in Philly, but online is a breeze).  I can ALWAYS find a little gem (or two).  The shipping is super-fast and returns are a cinch.  It took me no time flat to find these adorable pieces…











While I love ALL of them, I am partial to the melon colored option because of its subtle gathered shoulder and overall ladylike appearance.  I am picturing it with a skinny khaki ankle pant, cream-colored blouse, leopard print heels and a big, chunky statement necklace.  Easter perfection.

Wishing you and yours a blessed day filled with family, friends, chocolate and fashion!

Happy Easter Sunday!
