"What is appropriate Easter Attire?" is a question that baffles many women (and men). For Easter, we are meant to show are respect, appreciation, and thankfulness for the sacrifice made and resurrection of Jesus Christ. So take that into consideration when choosing your Easter apparel.
Here are some tips:
Tip 1: You want to look beautiful and respectful. So short, tight, and stretch polyester are definite No-No's!!!
Tip 2: Easter is in the spring. Think cottons, silks, and linens.
Tip 3: Black or other dark colors are acceptable, just make sure this isn't your focal color.
Tip 4: No Animal Prints or Skins!
Women- Nice, light colored suits (think Allie from the movie the Notebook), pencil skirt with floral top, or cotton/silk dress with a lightweight, pretty cardigan. No A-line skirts or dresses, you are not a seven-year-old! Always accessorize...spring jewelry, bright or pastel handbags, wedge heels, pumps, or even the new booties that are taking over this season.
Men- Single breasted linen suits, light gray suits, navy suits, with pastel ties and light-colored button-ups. Brown or khaki belts and shoes. For the more casual man, dress khakis and a light colored button up. Think Great Gatsby and southern charm.
For BBQ's and Such:
Women- Cotton sun-dresses and cardigans. Espadrilles, flat leather sandals, beads, and light-colored handbags.
Men- Khakis or nice jeans, light-colored sports coats and button-ups. Brown or khaki accessories.
Also remember, people will be taking pictures, so you want to look nice!!!

One of the biggest shoe trends this spring is booties. All colors, all shapes, all styles. Zippers, ties, and buckles. So run out and snatch up a pair or two or twelve!!

Today's style tip is paying homage to an amazing artist, Kandee Johnson. She is a Hollywood makeup artist who writes a very inspiring and informative blog on her career and her life in general. I came across her one day a few weeks ago when I was doing a search for how to get glowing skin. One of her YouTube videos came up, I watched it, then another one, then another one, and then became addicted. She is so upbeat and beautiful, and now I check her blog for new posts every morning before I even get out of bed. Hopefully one day I'll be able to work with her on a movie or fashion show or something. Check her blog out at kandeethemakeupartist.blogspot.com
and her YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/kandeejohnson . I'll place the links on my links. Kandee you are awesome!! Thanks for all your tips, and please keep'em coming!!
