Midi Skirt + Mixed Prints

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a blessed Easter Sunday yesterday. Mine definitely was! I started the day off early by taking some photos for this blog post. It was a beautiful day, and the sun was shining brightly. However, it was still pretty cold outside. After snapping a few pictures, I picked up my mom (who is in town helping my sister and bro in law out with my newborn baby nephew), and went to church. My bff joined us for service, and it was a great one, as usual. As I said before, my church is pretty casual, but most people got all dressed up in their Easter best, and looked really nice. We went to  brunch at Clyde’s afterwards, and the “Easter bunny” was there passing out candy and we all happily took a few pieces, lol.

Factoring in the weather and what I already had in my closet, I decided to somewhat recreate the first look from my last post. I have been admiring A-line midi skirts for a few years, so I figured I’d try one out for Easter, and I’m glad I did. I chose this one because you can wear it with all different colors, as well as with different prints. I already had the black shirt and knew that my  burnt orange Zara sandals would compliment the outfit nicely. Let me just throw out the fact that if you notice the lint on my shirt, I was in a hurry and couldn’t find my lint brush. :-/

All of my coats made the outfit look real “Little House on the Prairie” (did anyone else watch that show as a child, lol?), so I wore it with a plain black, slightly cropped blazer, because I didn’t have to be outside for that long.

    It was definitely nippy on Easter morning. So much so that I donned sheer black tights. But later throughout the day it kind of warmed up.
    Such a cute outfit you have on! The off the shoulder top is too cute. And diggin’ the heels, as well.

      Thanks Vivi! It was so nippy, and my mother would’ve wanted me to don sheer tights as well, but I had to have my toes out to show off my shoes, lol. If it would’ve been as warm as it was on Mon or Tues, it would’ve been perfect!

    Great look! I love your shoes too! I definitely agree those skirts can be tough to pull off. I used to look like “Mrs. Olsen” when I wore one back in the day. But, I definitely think I’ll give it a try again after reading your post!

    I absolutely love this skirt! I haven’t been able to find a good A-line skirt that fits my body right, but this definitely doesn’t flare out in the wrong spots! I also think the belt around the belt might help me break up some of the awkwardness of the skirts for me. I love that shirt with it, too. Too cute!!
    Also, do you go to church in DC/MD?? I’ve been looking for a good church to go to that mirrors my church back home. I’ve been checking out a few, and would love to try out some other spots. If you have some suggestions, that would be great!

      Thanks Mionna! Yes, I feel the same way about the A-line skirt, so definitely check this one out or similar ones at H&M! And yes, waist belts for the win, lol. I do go to church in DC! I love my church (Grace Covenant), it is pretty different from the one from back home (more casual, worship team vs choir), but you should definitely check it out (and let me know if you do, we can meet up)! Also, not sure if you want to make the trip to Alexandria, but my friend and a few other people go to Alfred Street Baptist, I’ve been before, and liked that one. It reminds me a little more of my home church, but it’s huge, so you have to get there a little early to actually get a seat in the sanctuary, lol! I put their websites below.

        Thanks so much. I’ve visited Glen Arden in MD…which is kind of like my church back home…but I just didn’t get the sense of home there. I’ll definitely check out the two churches you suggested, and I’ll let you know if I visit!
