Over 40 Fashion Blogger, Tania Stephens is wearing a long sleeve maxi dress with blue butterflies

Easter is only a few days away, and I am already thinking about what to wear. I usually have a couple of outfits in mind, and I decide which one I will wear depending on the weather. The sun might be shining bright, or it could be cold and rainy, so I have two outfits on standby.

Today, a good blogging friend is joining me and will also show her Easter outfits. Jo-Lynne Shane and I have collaborated for several years, and I think we have covered most of the Holidays except for Christmas and Halloween. She was one of the main reasons I started blogging and was one of the first bloggers to do a collaboration post with me. Guess what that post was about….it was on Easter outfits! So, it’s appropriate that we partner again together, and I know you will love her choices.

Growing up, I always got a pretty new dress for Easter, and that tradition has stuck with me. I love a beautiful dress for Easter, I can wear it later, but it makes Easter seem extra special. I love that this Butterfly Wings Wrap Dress has chiffon sleeves that give me coverage for my arms but aren’t hot if the sun shines. This dress is feminine and has a flowy silhouette. I’m wearing a medium, and the dress fits great.

As you walk, you might get a glimpse of your leg. You can add a safety pin to make sure that a glimpse of leg is all that you see. Lol! The dress is lined, so you don’t have to worry about it being see-through.

Here is a photo so you can see the gold metallic stripe that runs throughout the dress. I decided to add the square toe Gold Platform Sandals with the wraparound straps. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but the square toe look might be growing on me. I love the look of these sandals, but my daughter asked me if I was going to the prom. Lol! I found that I needed to size up a half size; I’m wearing a 9 1/2.

As we get older, our priorities can change. Buying a pretty new dress for Easter may not be the way you want to go, especially if you can’t see yourself getting more wear from the item. Instead, you might opt to wear something comfortable and something you could wear more often.

My children are grown with their own children, so I no longer have to worry about hiding eggs. As a grandmother, I can sit back and enjoy watching the grandchildren hunt for eggs without doing any of the work. I still like to participate in the Easter Egg hunts, so even if I wear a dress for an Easter church service, I’ll change into an outfit with pants once I get home. I don’t like chasing after the Grands in a dress; that is not even close to being fun. Lol!

This cute and springy outfit would be great for Easter Sunday or watching an egg hunt. I love the Peri Falls Eyelet Ruffle Top; it is adorable and comfortable. This style top looks great worn alone, but it is also great for layering under a blazer. The sleeves might create more of an issue if you wanted to wear the top with a sweater cardigan, but it works fine with a denim jacket or blazer.

Sunny days are ahead in the Lemon Linen-Blend Striped Blazer. This blazer is by Draper James RSVP, and it is beautiful in every way. I love the way this blazer fits, but I think it runs a tad bit small. I’m wearing a medium, and even though I can button the blazer, I think I would like the fit better if it was a tiny bit larger. The blazer is lined, but the cotton-linen blend keeps the blazer from feeling hot and stuffy.

These Roll Cuff Skinny Jeans are also by Draper James RSVP. You might have noticed that I am a BIG fan of this line. Usually, when I order white jeans, I will size up so that you don’t see every lump and bump. For some odd reason, I ordered a size 8, but they fit great, and you can see through them at all. I felt like the jeans were tighter than they looked on me; I think that is because I’m used to wearing relaxed jeans. These jeans come in several colors, and I also have the Kelly Green pair.

Accessories tie the look together. My Espadrille Ankle Strap Sandals are comfortable, and I love the neutral color that goes with anything. I’ve worn these with dresses, jeans, dress pants, and shorts, and they look great with all of those. They run TTS, which is under $50, so they are a great bargain. I recently did an Inside The Dressing Room try-on haul at the Coach Outlet Store, and I left grieving over not purchasing this Yellow Lane Carryall. All of you encouraged me to get the bag, and I am so glad that you did. Look how happy this handbag makes me. I smile every time I pick it up!!!

For my jewelry, I’m wearing a pair of 18 Kt. Gold Vermeil Blue Lapis Drop Earrings. I love Lapis, probably because of the vein of gold that runs through the stone. The Cross Necklace is also in 18 Kt. Gold Vermeil and I wear this daily, even to shower and sleep in. The longer necklace is one strand of the Multi-Strand Davis Necklace.

  1. Just a comment to say how much I enjoy your posts. You look absolutely fabulous. Loved the swimsuit post. You have inspired me to lose a little stubborn weight. A blessed Easter to you and to your family. Keep up the great work!

  2. Pamela Newton says:

    I think the dress looks a little bit like a housecoat. The butterfly’s are too big for you. I love the second outfit.

  3. Tonya (Denise) Cheatham says:

    What if I don’t want to wear a dress for Easter? Would you give me some ideas?

  4. I always got a new dress at Easter when I was a little girl. Ruffly ankle socks and white gloves too! I remember being jealous of my best friend because she had an Easter hat too.

  5. Ginger Hiller says:

    Both looks are top notch! If I were a blazer type of woman, I would buy that blazer.

  6. I’m so happy that you are showing some Boston Proper items. Their items are so unique and great quality. All of your choices are great options for Easter. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I am cracking up that we both shared two looks. Blue and white must be trending this spring. Thanks for joining me!

  8. I love the dress but probably not for Easter. Nobody dresses up around here. Lol. You look great in both outfits!

  9. LOVE the whole look with the pants outfit! Here in northern Colorado it could be sunny and 70 or it could be 40 and sleety, so I understand your 2 outfit plan.

  10. Mary Ellen Hedrick says:

    Where did you get your neutral espadrilles? Did I miss the link?

  11. I love the pants outfit and would totally wear that for Easter! Yellow, blue and white just say Spring to me!

  12. I love the beautiful butterfly dress but I am more of a pants person. 🙂

  13. Jocelyn Reid says:

    Love both outfits! Unfortunately, more often then not Easter is cold and snowy or rainy which brings about the age old dilemma; do you dress for the season or for the weather? Any thoughts on what to wear for Easter when it’s in the 30’s and 40’s?

  14. Oh my word—the relaxed pants outfit is a triple win in my book! The colors are beautiful on you, classy, blazer, purse, pants, shoes…..super look on you! And, the dress is beautiful, too. I’m just drawn to the pants outfit for some reason. One of my favorites ever! Well done!

  15. Love the dress but I am a (short 5‘😀) petite! Wish more stores carried petites. Appreciate Bible verse so much each day!

  16. I prefer the pant outfit. Im not a fan of the huge butterfly print. Sometimes clothes over power the person instead of compliment them and those butterflies are certainly trying to steal the show!

  17. I love both outfits – thanks for the great ideas.

    1. I’m glad you like both looks.

  18. I love the gold platform sandals and the items from Draper James!! I’m a fan of that line too! Sometimes it’s a little too young for me at 61 but I feel I could wear the items you have on and feel comfortable with them. Very cute!

    1. Lori, I’m 61 too, but I still love the line. Wear what makes you happy. 😊

  19. Tania, I love both of your outfits! I would buy the dress if they had petites.

    1. I wish more stores carried Petites.

  20. You look great in every style you wear! I LOVE the variety of clothing you share with us! Thank you!

    1. Thanks, Cindy. I try to shop lots of different stores and Price points.

  21. Thanks for adding the Bible verses back into you blog! Also, I love all your past warm tone hair colors on you! They are the best. You have wonderful hair that looks great in so many styles. This whiter/cooler tone isn’t my fav on you. We are similar in many ways, and coloring, and all during the 70s I home frosted my hair. I later learned warm colors were better for me. Your current color reminds me of those home frosting kit days.🤣

    1. Mudra, I had been adding the Bible verses all along, but there was a glitch with my website that was making them disappear after they loaded. I had to go in and recreate part of the blog, and they fixed the issue.

  22. These outfits are beautiful! I like to shop at Kohls. The second outfit is so springy and pretty. I subscribed to Jo-Lynne’s blog as well

    1. Trish, you will love Jo-Lynne! She has impeccable style and is so nice.

  23. Maribeth Conklin says:

    The dress is very pretty. However my eye is drawn to THE pant outfit. Love how it looks on you.

    1. I love the colors of the pants outfit!
