Fashion Friday...

I'm bringing back another Good Life for Less classic... and that is Fashion Fridays. Today's Fashion Friday poses a question for all my lovely readers...

This weekend for Easter we are heading to my sister-in-laws for Easter dinner, egg hunts and general fun. I'm stuck on an Easter appropriate outfit though... two hours in the car (each way!) I want to be relaxed and comfortable, but still fresh and spring-y. The weather is only going to be in the 50's... so which of these outfits do you like best?

(note: they all represent actual items in my closet as close as I can find - I'm not going to buy anything new!)

Outfit number 1:

Relaxed and fresh. The scarf is actually one I own that was given as a gift from my father-in-law. He'll be there, so I thought it would be a nice nod to his generosity. The shoes I own are NOT Jimmy Choo - mine are Nine West. But I'll be darned, they look *exactly* like these! Then of course my staple sevens jeans and diamond studs. I wear those pretty much every day.

Outfit number 2:

This outfit I would wear with the cardigan open and then the top and cardigan belted at the waist (over both layers). It's practical and chic... maybe a bit boring?

Outfit number 3:

My classic black top and jeans... this is practically a uniform of mine, but I love it, it never fails me. The t-strap sandals I have are actually turquoise (couldn't find similar ones online)... so it could be a fun punch of color. Otherwise it's a standard black blazer with a black flutter sleeve top.

So... what's your vote?

I'm voting for outfit #1. I think it's a nice gesture to show your FIL that you appreciated his gift, plus I think it's a little more spring-y than the others.

Hope you have a fun time with your Easter hunt... so fun to get to spend it with family. Happy weekend xo

i like all of them but the first one is my favorite. i agree w/kotori that wearing people's gifts around them is always a nice gesture. i also love scarves and the feel of the first outfit is more in tune w/the holiday (i think). good luck!

By far # q is my favorite! plus I think is a nice touch to wear the scarf
Happy easter!

I vote for #1. Love the scarf. I also love outfit #3, but not for Easter, too much black.

ms. less is always more said...

thanks all... i think it is unanimous! I don't usually do "fresh and springy" so well. I could wear black all the time - it feels natural to me. So thanks for reminding me it is spring and my clothes should reflect that! Everyone have a happy Easter! i'll try to snap a pic of the outfit for you lovelies.
