It’s been a while since I’ve done a style collab with another one of my blogging buddies, so I’m excited to team up with Tania Stephens from 50 Is Not Old to share some Easter fashion inspiration with you all.
If you aren’t in need of Easter fashion, these are versatile outfits you could wear dining out or to other events this spring.
Tania is no stranger to many of you, as we’ve teamed up several times before. She describes her style as “classic meets trendy,” and she strives to mix quality fashions with affordable clothing. She also loves to weave a story into her fashion posts, which is a lot of fun.
If you’re visiting for the first time, welcome! I’ve been sharing my life on the internet since 2006, and over that time my blog has evolved into a positive community of women looking to look and feel their best at any age, especially those of us over 40.
As you can see, Tania went a little dressier with her Easter look than I did. Our church is very casual, and I wear my white jeans a lot during the spring and summer months.
I do have a dressier spring look that I’ll share at the end of this post for those who want more ideas, but my feature outfit is what I will probably wear to our church on Easter Sunday, assuming the weather cooperates.
Somehow, I only got one picture of this outfit without the denim jacket on top, and that’s really how I prefer to wear it. The jacket adds an additional layer of interest, but it hides the sleeve detail on the blouse, and the outfit is dressier without it.
This is also the only picture I have with this blouse untucked. It is finished in such a way that you can leave it out, but I usually give it a front-tuck to flatter the waist and bring the proportions of the outfit into better balance.
This blouse is the CeCe brand from Nordstrom. I have a love/hate relationship with this brand, to be honest. The fabric is a bit rough and doesn’t have much stretch, but they have some pretty styles and they’re fairly affordable.
Here’s a close-up so you can see the print and the detail on the sleeve. This length is nice for those who don’t love their upper arms.
The v-neck is fairly modest, and the covered buttons up the front are pretty.
I’m wearing my usual small, and it fits great except it’s a little snug across the chest. It should fit better in a few months! All that to say, it’s true to size, but you may want to size up if you have a larger chest.
I felt like this blouse was begging to be paired with white jeans, and these are the Mother Dazzler slim straight ankle jeans. I also have them in a blue denim with a raw hem, but this white pair is nice for dressier looks.
The fabric isn’t as opaque as some, but it’s good enough. I usually wear these skin-colored smoothing shorts underneath to help alleviate any show-through.
And this is the KUT from the Kloth Jacqueline denim jacket. It’s a little longer and boxier than their Helena, which I have in the white. The Helena is slightly more structured and seems a bit dressier, so it’s another good option.
I like how the denim jacket gives the outfit a bit of structure, and it keeps it from being too precious. That said, a denim jacket may not be dressy enough for Easter, so a lightweight cardigan is a solid alternative.
I wore my Dolce Vita braided slides because the taupe is such a good neutral, and it helps tone down the white and blue. This is actually the Cafe color, and they come in tons of options.
The jeans here with the raw hem are a different pair…. so don’t be confused by that! The Mother Dazzler has the traditional sewn hem, which I chose because it’s a more polished look that’s fitting for church.
I matched my bag to my shoes because I like how they help neutralize the bright blue and white outfit, but it is no longer available in this color combo. This Tory Burch camera bag is similar.
Now head on over to 50 Is Not Old and get all the details on Tania’s Easter look!
