Well Houston is officially on a Stay Home, Work Safe Order for all of April.  Since my grandmother is in her 80s and my father has a compromised immune system, I think Easter is going to look a little different this year.  Last year, I invited Steve to my family’s Easter celebration.  It was a meet the parents, cousins, aunts, uncles, sister, and grandma kinda day.  This year, it looks like it might be just the two of us, and the dogs.

Originally, I picked out this coral top to be part of my casual Easter outfit.  I love this color for spring, and it really pops against the white denim.  If you plan to dress up a little for Easter Sunday, this outfit would still work!  You could trade out the heels for some flat sandals or slides.  I really want this pair for a fun and sparkly casual shoe!  To get more wears out of this top, you could pair it with a light tan colored pencil skirt for the office or denim shorts for hot summer days.

How is everything going where you are?  What do you think your Easter will look like this year?  My dad has learned to FaceTime, so I’m sure mine will include some family FaceTime sessions and probably leggings.

What I Wore This Month

Well hasn’t this been a whirlwind of a month! I started the month finally able to start wearing all the cute and pretty spring things and ended it wearing all the casual comfies.  I’m thinking it might be time to start putting on normal clothes again this week.  We will see how everything goes.

For this month’s outfit recap, I included a few shots from a try on session I did over on Instagram Stories (@karenkocich).  Occasionally, I share new pieces when I receive them in the mail.  Since I didn’t have a chance to wear all my new spring items this month, I wanted to include them before they sell out!

Hope you enjoy this month’s outfit recap!  Fingers crossed next month will be filled with more fabulous spring outfit ideas!

Today’s post is kind of special, it’s the first blog post shot by my boyfriend.  He’s been taking some of my outfit shots for Instagram, so I knew he was ready for the big time.  The photographer I have been using had a baby at the start of the month, so I knew I wouldn’t be able to shoot with her for awhile.  Originally, I had a few out of town weekends scheduled, so I knew it was going to be hard to book a time with my other photographer before I ran out of outfits to share.  I asked my boyfriend if he would mind doing a little mini shoot and he agreed.  Now, I’m so happy we did it because it led me to having a surplus of content so I can keep on posting!

My hair these past two weeks has been lots of ponytails and buns, and headbands are great for making this quick hair up do feel a little more polished.  About once or twice a week (during a normal work week), I take a pilates class at lunch.  Headbands have become a staple for me for hiding post-workout hair.

Headbands are also the perfect hair accessory to pair with high neck tops.  I like wearing my hair up with these tops.  I think it helps showcase the style and details of the top a little better, but I’m not always a fan of my hair up do skills.  Adding in a fun headband helps dress up my basic bun a little.  It also adds a fun pop of print to my ivory top.

My headband was a purchased from a local boutique during the end of year sale season.  I found one that is similar.  I’m planning to add a few more in different materials and colors. I’m really wanting a pink velvet one!

Have you embraced the headband trend yet?

Hello friends! I hope you had a good weekend despite everything going on.  I’m adjusting to a work from home lifestyle mixed with an evenings at home lifestyle.  My apartment has never been cleaner, lol.  Steve and I broke into my game collection this weekend and played a few rounds of Scattegories on Saturday followed by a minor binge watching of Tiger King on Netflix.  We only intended to watch a couple episodes, but this show ya’ll is crazy! Right when you thing you know everything another curve ball is thrown.  If you are looking for something to watch, I highly recommend!

Flowy maxi dresses are great for summer! They are perfect for beach vacations because they can work as both a swimsuit coverup and dinner dress.  I will also toss mine on before heading to a pool party or just to run errands or grab brunch on a hot day.  This one is also perfect for a day at home when you want to fill dressed up but still comfy.

You can easily make these summer maxi dresses work for spring too with two simple add ons.  First option, belt the waist.  This works for summer too.  It helps define your waist and can change up the look of the dress.  I place the belt a couple inches above my belly button to add the look of length to my petite frame and create a more slimming look.  Second option, add on a denim jacket.  A great option for cooler days!  You can roll up the sleeves to about a 3/4 length for a daytime look.  A denim jacket can both dress up or dress down a dress. I love the versatility of it.  For a spaghetti strap dress, it can make your outfit more work friendly.  If your maxi feels dressier, a denim jacket can give it a more casual brunch time look.

A few simple adds and your maxi dress is quickly transformed into a whole new look!
