Happy Easter! Like several traditions I have here on fashionxfairytale I am here with this year’s Easter dress. This is the third year in a row where I show you what I wore and this is the only holiday I have been consistent in showing you my outfit with Christmas following close behind now. I started back in 2014 for fun as I was on my way out that day but first took a few pictures with my dress on. A few hours before that my mom and I were going through boxes and found some pictures of my Easter as a kid and finding an old dress I had worn. That somehow reminded me I had always taken a picture of my Easter dress so I continued the tradition except now I get to show you here on my blog. It started off in front of my parent’s house and last year I moved to my parent’s balcony and also this year as well. It’s a fun tradition so here is what I dressed in.
For this year’s Easter dress I made it a body positive one and became more confidence. I have been so inspired by so many others lately and thought I would just wear a dress. If you didn’t know I have worn this dress maybe once or twice on the blog but the difference is I either have a cover up like a cardigan or blazer over it or I make it into a skirt because it is really easy to do. I never just wore the dress because it has no sleeves which at first I wasn’t comfortable in with my arms being exposed so much and second the back is very open and it makes it into a two piece. Lately I found myself reading so many things and empowerment online that I wanted to just wear this alone. It feels so good and I feel very pretty in it. Isn’t that what matters? I think I have been slowly stepping out of my comfort zones and I like that I am more accepting now. It may be due to the dancing I do every week at ballet and tap class that has made me feel better or all the inspiring things and seeing other girls do their thing and feeling proud of themselves. With all that happened this week with all the body shaming issues here is my way of showing support. It may not be much but for me it is a huge step. I hope everyone takes a moment and just wears a pretty dress that makes them feel beautiful because this one sure did for me.
The dress itself is a nice material and perfect for the spring/summer weather we’ve been having. It is two different colors the top being a light coral pink and the bottom half or the skirt of the dress is this bright neon coral that is almost orange. It synches perfectly at my waist and creates this bunch there that gives the allusion of a smaller waist. I do like that it is very simple and just a plain dress in the front but in the back is where it gets fun. The top portion breaks off and has buttons running down it and has a pretty scallop edge with embroidery at the end. Then it stops and starts the skirt so as I said making it almost two pieces. At first I was always scared to wear it alone but you know what it isn’t as bad as I thought and looks fun and not many plus size dresses have this sort of detail. I hope to find something similar to it again.
The rest of my outfit I kept pretty simple. I wanted the dress to be the focal piece and it isn’t often I do that. So here I go again with this hot air balloon necklace that I said would e wearing a lot more because it goes with everything and just gives the outfit an extra special spark to it. Next are these earrings and they are a little out there but I thought a fun touch to make the whole outfit to have an even more quirky feel. I actually bought these earrings at Claire’s when I was 13 or so. That makes them maybe 10 years old almost which is crazy I still have but they were in a jewellery box I had stored away in my old bedroom. I guess I was quite adventurous with accessories when I was a pre-teen because they are the reflective confetti type earrings and remind me of a disco or something. I don’t know how or when I can where them again but they add some fun and match the top portion of the dress. The bow to match the dress is the same color as the bottom portion of the dress so you can see how well coordinated all the colors are. Last are these and I think they are my going to be my go to spring and summer shoe as you will be seeing a lot of them too. I might need to buy another pair soon and maybe a flat sandal as well.
As for what I did on Easter myself was just dress up and ate pancit (a Filipino noodle dish) with my family. I didn’t buy myself any Easter eggs or chocolate this year but I may go out if there is any left and get them on sale. I feel like I was more festive last year as I had a bunny iPhone case and wallpaper but since I upgrading my phone I don’t get to use any of them anymore. Other than that it was pretty quiet which is nice too and a relaxing Sunday. I manged to film a get ready with me with this look that I may have out soon however I am such a perfectionist with editing it and making it just right it might take me a while. I like how it turned out so maybe it will be easy to edit but I’d love if I could actually get it done quicker than I anticipate. In the meantime you can subscribe here and also I’ve been on Snapchat a lot more and capturing some of my day and my silliness so if your curious and want to see it my username is “jackiefairytale” on there. I hope my little speech up there inspired someone because I know some of the things I read inspire me so I hope I gave back even if it is just a little bit. I’d love to know what you did for Easter and hope you had a lot of chocolate. Makes sure to check out my previous what I wore on Easter below. Until I talk about next year’s Easter dress!
What dress would you always look confident in?
