Fancy Friday...Easter Dresses

I always got a new Easter dress when I was a kid.  My mom would roll my hair and tie it back with a pretty bow and I was in girly girl heaven.

I wore shorts and pants most of the time but only because it was more convenient and appropriate to ride a bike, jump on a trampoline, or hang upside down from the monkey bars in them.  Definitely not because I was opposed to dresses.  I loved them. 

While I still spend most of my time in pants, I still love dresses and usually still buy myself a new Easter dress every year.  I try to pick something comfortable and versatile enough that I will want to wear again and again...

like this Riviera Dress I found at Boden.  It comes in several cute prints but this blue polka dot is my favorite.  I'd dress it up with a cardigan, a strappy pair of sandals or kitten heels and my pearls for Easter but it would also make a great summer dress just as it is.

Charter Club Dress, Sleeveless Linen with Belt
I love the feel of linen and the flattering cut of the A-line dress.  On sale for 64.99 at Macy's. 

Adrianna Papell Print Overlay Dress
I think this is one of those that would just need to be tried on but I love the look of it.  Fancy!

Maggy London Pleat Trim Dress

I don't think a dress could get any more Springy than this!  Nordstrom also has a yellow silk and cotton cropped cardigan that looks so cute with it. 

Berry Months Dress
I normally try to stay away from anything I'm going to have to wear a strapless bra with but I think this dress is totally worth the trouble.  Love.

How Was Your Day Dress in Pink
So feminine and retro!

Deuce Coupe Darling Dress
I am loving the retro feel of these dresses from ModCloth.  I just wish this one came in more colors.

Portrait-Collar Wrap Dress
I love the flowy look of this Chadwick's dress.  It looks so put-together, yet comfortable too.  Also comes in yellow.

I'm in love with this dress by Jessica Simpson. Unfortunately it's only currently available in one size and that size is not mine.    

BCBGMaxazria Cowl Neck Sheath Dress
This dress is so bright and cheerful while soft and feminine at the same time.  I think it would make the perfect Easter dress.  

Happy Friday! Hope y'all have a great weekend!  It's supposed to reach 85 here Sunday.  Bring on the sandals and flip flops!

  1. LOVE that Jessica Simpson dress and the one from Charter Club! I am short (barely 5 ft. 2") so prints scare me, although I know florals are really hot this year!

  2. I LOVE all of them! My favorite is the "How Was Your Day dress in Pink"...LOVE it!

  3. LOVE the orange one from Jessica Simpson. But, if it's not in your size -- the blue polka dot is absolutely adorable!

  4. I'm a jeans and tshirt girl but have a soft spot for dresses. Pity I don't have the figure for them!

    I love the blue ones (I'm counting the portrait collar one as blue as well).

  5. Loved the dresses especially the pink mod one!

    You always wore the prettiest dresses. I was so jealous.

    I haven't worn dresses in a long time, but I recently bought 3 very different style dresses. It's been fun wearing them. I am thankful for sunless tanning lotion.

  6. Oh I love the top two. There were others I like too, but those first two... I have similar Boden dress in a yellow floral... so flattering!

  7. Love them all! Just wish I'd look that good in them! Next life, maybe...

  8. I think I love every one!! I'm in desperate need of a wardrobe update (but am waiting for this training to kick in) and these all caught my eye!

  9. Beautiful dresses! I don't normally wear dresses but I really like some of the ones you posted.

  10. I love wearing dresses so much! They're so airy and comfortable! Those are gorgeous choices too. :)
