Stuck On The Blues: Dressing Up & Dressing Down

 My dear Watson, it would seem this girl has an affinity for the color blue. I admit, I'm on a bit of blue color kick lately. Let's blame it on my casual bent toward blue jeans. From there it was a necklace, gifted earrings, shoes, etc and before I knew it my closet teemed with coordinating shades of blue. Admittedly, I've done this before with army greens, pink and grays.

And this blue outfit was my stay at home Easter dress. I woke up early, put together the boy's Easter treats, stuffed eggs, threw a casserole together and quietly drank my coffee while reading Psalms before anyone was awake. Even though we weren't going anywhere, I wanted to make the day feel as special as possible by dressing up, playing music etc.
This non-wrinkling wonder of a dress was sent to me from Caite & Kyla last fall and I was happy to put it to use again. Especially with some of my latest additions...the jacket from XCVI, the rings from Ana Luisa, the shoes from Jambu (featured HERE and HERE)

Evening Switch Up

Later that evening my hubby and my youngest convinced me to take a ride to a local bridge to get some fresh air. I was tired but knew it would be good to get some fresh air. So I changed and had to laugh when I realized I sported more blues...

These shorts C/O XCVI are worn on repeat right now. They have an elastic waist, but I can still do a side or front tuck and look stylish. The soft tank is also from XCVI - hey, it's pink! ;) If you're looking for summer, comfort clothes be sure to check these out! Bonus, code Granola20 is good for 20% off!

As for the hat and towel, they were purchased with beach days in mind. Let's hope they come soon!

  1. It's funny how we go through periods where one color seems to dominate our fashion choices, isn't it? But your affinity for blue suits you! This dress is so pretty on you and pairs perfectly with those Jambu sandals! It was the perfect stay at home but be festive Easter dress!

  2. Blue BABE! That dress is just beyond precious! So you, so Free and fresh and oh so pretty!

  3. What a great dress! I decided to put a little effort in on Easter Sunday too, even if we only saw family through video calls, I still wore a pretty floral maxi dress (one I've worn for Easter before!) and the boys dressed up too. it was nice :)

    Thanks for the link up!

    Hope that you are having a good week :)

  4. You wear blue so well! I'm obsessed with your Caite & Kyla dress! So pretty on you!

  5. You look stunning in this dress, and I'm so jealous you can wear shorts. We just had a blizzard on Tuesday. It's so cold here in Wisconsin.

  6. You look so pretty! I love how your energy *always* comes through on your photos. I tried to make Easter special--Saturday I dug out my old ipod and played a lot of my (old, but still good) Christian music. I especially enjoyed Then Came the Morning and, of course, singing along! Hugs!

  7. Hi Chrissy
    Wow, that dress is a stunner on you! I am collaborating with them again( Caite and Kyla) as soon as they are back in business. This print is gorgeous and blue suits you so well, goes with your jambu shoes just perfectly! Love the white jacket with it.
    Your pics are lovely, i am ready for more sun here we had days in the 80s, now back to 60.
    take care,
    jess xx

  8. Chrissy, your dress is fabulous and every single accessory you wore with it was totally on point! And your beachy pictures are making me feel the need for fresh air, too. I haven’t gotten much air lately because the weather here has been rather uncooperative!


  9. Great minds with the color scheme! ;) This scarf dress is such a gorgeous piece! So perfect for Easter and I love the floaty feel of it! And it is perfection with your new sandals too! Hope you are having a great week! And thanks for choosing my look to feature!

  10. Blue is one of my favorite colors too! It's not only a beautiful color but it's also calming and reminds me of the sea or ocean. This scarf dress is stunning and I just adore how it flows with you. I hope your day is going well so far and happy Wednesday!

    That dress is so wonderful with the uneven me that is a cool detail.

  12. So chic and so versatile! I am crazy for blue as well...brings me serenity and has so much depth. It mellows my mood and yet can make everything so chic as well. Love it darling:) xx

  13. That dress has your name all over it and the shorts and top from XCVI look like they were made with you in mind!!! OXOX

  14. I love your blues and whites here! So pretty and fresh for spring!
