Today is an extra-special, super-sized, Easter-themed fashion flashback post! I had a lot of fun with this one — hope y’all enjoy it, too!
Below is one of my favorite childhood photos, circa Easter 1983. I love this photo for several reasons:
- My fabulous egg-shaped Easter basket
- My oh-so-serious, girl-on-a-mission facial expression and purposeful walk (everyone else looks lackadaisical, don’t they? But not me!)
- Stripes! ♥
And I thought it would be fun to recreate the look, for a then-and-now style perspective. I borrowed my husband’s striped polo shirt to echo the striped shirt from my childhood. I kept things very simple, with my new khaki ankle pants, my beloved bronze flats, and of course, my childhood Easter basket! ♥
Details: New khaki ankle pants: Macy’s, gift-carded / Striped polo shirt: My husband’s / Bronze flats: Kmart, old / Red striped flats: Target, new
Sam loves catching a shot of my hair in a breeze. I seem unimpressed by this.
I kind of love how awkward my limbs look in the shot above.
Also, just for a quick change at the end, I donned my new red-and-white striped flats (loafers?), which are irresistibly adorable. (Target was having a buy 1, get 1 1/2 off sale, which Sam said counted under my shopping limitations. Who am I to argue with such logic?! )
Here’s a close-up:
For the final touch, here’s a close-up of the fun stripe detail on the shirt collar:
And yes, this outfit is what I’m wearing this Easter Sunday afternoon (I slipped on this outfit yesterday for a quick photo shoot in order to save time today). This very simple, casual ensemble feels just right for a Southern-style Easter luncheon with friends.
Happy Easter, y’all! And be sure to tune back in tomorrow, as I have exciting news about my first giveaway + first-year blogiversary countdown!
