WIW: Easter egg colors

It occurred to me while dressing today that while I'm not a church-goer, I like the idea of wearing white jeans on Easter. Then I realized I had chosen to pair my white (actually cream) jeans with a kind of Easter-egg palette. Granted, the Easter eggs in this case might be rather moody looking (typical for me). This outfit features a few new items I bought to refresh my Spring style: cream jeans, light green cardi, and olive stone jewelry.

The outfit:
Cream skinny jeans (Mother, high rise Looker, in Whipping the Cream); green and pink tie-dye-look t-shirt (made by me); long linen blend cardigan (Halogen, in green frozen); stone and cream belt (Annette Goertz); olive stone jewelry (Designs by Sonia); gray croc-print moto booties (Donald J. Pliner, Dalis).

I thought about wearing lighter footwear, but it was rainy and icky out, so I went with the gray boots. Hoping they look cohesive enough as a bookend to my hair.

Happy Easter to those who celebrate it. :)

Thanks for looking! I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.

    Lovely, I really like the proportions and the cream jeans (wow they look great on you) and the pale green cardigan go well together.  It works with the earthy tee and boots as well.  The cardigan reminds me of a songbirds' egg blue/green, very springy!

    I really like the boots with this outfit, and agree that they absolutely ground it .  A lovely spring outfit - and beautiful cardigan .

    Killer, and what Lisa said. I'm wearing my Easter jumper too.

    This is such an excellent and non-obvious palette for spring.

  • smittie replied 2 years ago

    I love the light green colour on you. It seems like the perfect spring/summer colour.
    Pants look fabulous too.

    Lovely, fantastic spring outfit. 

    Pants look fabulous and I love that beautiful cardigan .

    I adore the colours in your outfit Sharan! The fabric design on your tee is lovely and it harmonises beautifully with the cardigan.

    I love these moody pale colors on you. Not too sweet or girly. I've been clad in Easter egg colors too....purple and lavendar with a pink coat and then baby blue pullover under a pale pink hoodie with chocolate pants.
    I should have done chocolate with a creme center :)

    Love this colour palette and combo on you! And your boots bookend your hair nicely.

    Rabbit, I like the bird-egg image. The cardigan is a little more green IRL; the color doesn't photograph well. Even on Nordstrom's site, it's not represented well.
    Lisa, thank you!
    Angie, what a pretty color!
    UmmLila, Smittie, Mirjana, Diane, Aliona, thank you for your comments and your admiration of my Spring green!
    Joy, you made me laugh with your reference to Easter chocolates! Also made me hungry for some candy. . .

    I really like this colour palette - it is fresh and spring like but not too sweet. And love those jeans on you. You look great. Happy Easter to you too :)

  • shevia replied 2 years ago

    Fantastic - you look like a super hero (meant as a good thing)!

  • Beth Ann replied 2 years ago

    Yes, I immediately thought of a bird's egg!  Love your light and easy look, and thanks for the shout-out for the holiday!

  • Firecracker replied 2 years ago

    Thanks, everyone! I am so excited I got to wear the new cardigan and that I'm finding it goes with more than the t-shirt I bought in the same color!

    Just seeing this and you're smashing!

  • Sally replied 2 years ago

    That is a stunning outfit on you.  I envy your ability to pull pant /trouser outfits together.  I really liked your jean outfits the other day too. 

  • torontogirl replied 2 years ago

    Love that light color on you ... it looks so fresh! Happy Easter/Spring!!

  • Tanya replied 2 years ago

    Great interpretation of the spring pastels, these look very fresh and sophisticated.  Perfect for Easter.

  • lyn67 replied 2 years ago

    Perfect for a colder, rainy Easter! Love the color scheme, including darker  grey  booties:-).

  • Aziraphale replied 2 years ago

    You look great! Very seasonal. :-) Those cream jeans look lovely on you.
