Easter is this upcoming weekend, and with the weather projected to be sunny and 73 in Memphis (aka PERFECT), an uber cute dress to wear to (safely) celebrate the holiday is a must. Our retailers are finally starting to receive new Spring merchandise, and it’s becoming safer to gather in small groups again, so whether you will be celebrating the holiday at home with family, or treating it as a day for a brunch outing with your friends, I’ve rounded up 10 frocks that would be perfect to wear Easter Sunday and into the Spring and Summer season as well.

Style Tip: keep your accessories simple. Yes, to being able to get dressed and go out, but you can leave the heels at home. Grab some neutral sandals, gold jewelry (I’m partial to hoops, bracelets, and layering necklaces) and your favorite bold lipstick to accentuate your look.

Be sure to make an appointment at Nail Bar & Co. for a mani/pedi because sandal season is officially here, and stop by Sephora to refresh your makeup bag with some new Spring lippies and blushes if it’s been a while since you added something new. Most stores will also be having some type of sale this week due to the holiday, so make it a point to pop in for something cute (without having to break the bank).

You can have a closet full of clothes, but that doesn’t mean you won’t ever say to yourself “I have nothing to wear!”. Shopping your closet and remixing your favorite pieces can be fun, but sometimes you really do need to add in a few new pieces to wake up your wardrobe.

Fall-Trends-To-Try-Now

When this feeling hits, instead of going out and buying any and everything, take a moment to take stock of what you have, what you need, and what you should try differently so that you don’t get bored. If you still find yourself at a standstill while standing in your favorite store, remember these 3 tips:

Bet on denim
Denim is always a good choice. A medium rinse straight leg skinny is safe bet, but flares have made a resurgence this season so don’t be so quick to skip over it. Denim, sweater, handbag: Indigo.

Choose rompers for “One and Done” looks
Rompers (or jumpsuits-which ever one you want to call it) are so easy to wear this season. They are a great alternative to dresses, can be dressed up or down based on how you accessorize them, and can take you to so many different settings in a day. Wear alone or top with your favorite cardigan or jacket once temps start to cool. Romper + necklace: Threads Memphis.

When all else fails, wear a dress
Sometimes, a girl just needs a cute dress. This season, try the slightly babydoll dress trend; it’s a looser fit than your normal shift dress, but it’s still just as versatile. Wear with sneakers when running errands and then switch to mules or heels and a cute cardie for dinner. Dress + cardigan: Threads Memphis, Bracelets: Kendra Scott.

The first day of Fall was September 23rd, and even though it’s still a little warm, that doesn’t mean we aren’t itching to break out some cozy knits and grab a Pumpkin Spice Latte #sobasic. If you live in the South, it won’t completely cool down til at least October, but you can still break out some of your favorite Fall fits to get you in the mood.

You might have to think “cooler” thoughts during the day so that you don’t overheat, but we all own a few pieces that we can wear now into early Fall.

Snakeskin Prints
Snakeskin prints are h-o-t for Fall, and you can make the fun trend more accessible(but still edgy) by rocking it in a mini skirt style with your favorite elevated tee and denim jacket. Jacket, Tee, Skirt, Jewelry: Indigo

Lightweight Trousers
Swap out your skinny denim for lightweight trousers that can easily take you from workwear to weekend warrior. A crotchet sweater works for casual Fridays, but pair with Chucks and a henley tee for an off-duty look. Sweater, Trousers: American Threads. Earrings, Bracelet: Kendra Scott
