Sartorial Saturday…On a Sunday–Easter Fashion in the Time of COVID-19

Time to take a look at the Easter outfit that this year I actually get to wear outside of the house! I bought this Lana dress from Pinup Girl Clothing as a birthday present to myself last year, and as soon as I put it on, I knew it was going to be my Easter dress for this year…the beautiful floral print is perfect for it! Since it’s the midwest, and you never know what the weather is going to be like, I added a Yemak cropped cardigan in the most beautiful shade of purple to go with it.

Easter is an especially good holiday for accessorizing…this year, I’m wearing a sun hat I got from Unique Vintage, but I swapped out the pink tie around it for a beautiful blue floral scarf from Erstwilder. I chose a purple floral necklace and a Splendette duchess bangles stack to go with it, and of I course I added my favorite fancy floral brooch. I’m also really excited about my new Erstwilder handbag!

I’m sure I say this every year, but this may be my favorite Easter look yet…I love all of the floral components! Perfect for a lovely spring day after what seems like a year-plus of never-ending, dark winter!

Of course, I need a mask to go with my outfit, because COVID-19, and I have a coordinating mask that was made to go with my dress! I love how Pinup Girl thinks about the little details!

And one more picture of the outfit in the wild this morning…I changed my shoes (Chickadee asked me to wear sandals so she wasn’t the only one), and I picked a different mask, as well:

After last year’s Easter-at-Home, it’s so nice to be able to get dressed up and go to church. Happy Easter!

Sartorial Saturday–Fashion in the Time of COVID-19

Even when you don’t have anywhere to go, sometimes you just need a new dress…like when Pinup Girl Clothing drops a beautiful pastel floral print right before your birthday. And especially when it’s a style of dress (Lana) that you’ve been wanting to try, but hadn’t found in the right color and print until then. But when it also has a matching social-distancing mask, it’s not just another pretty outfit…it becomes the perfect symbol of fashion in the time of COVID-19!

“My mask protects you; your mask protects me.”

The mask is very comfortable to wear, and is, I think, a great accessory. Plus, you don’t have to worry about things like double chins when wearing a mask! Of course, in addition to my newest accessory, I added some old favorites, including my sparkliest brooch, a Meteor Jewelry Company necklace, and a Splendette Duchess Bangles stack:

Having the matching mask really makes this outfit special!

Of course, no one wants to wear masks forever. But as long as it’s necessary to do so, I’m happy I can be both safe and stylish!
