Daffodil dress...

Easter is always a big occasion in my family and this year was no exception. It was fantastic to see nearly all of my family and as ever, the food was fantastic! These photos have been sitting on my computer for ages but I wore a variation of this outfit for all the Easter festivities...

Dress: Topshop, blazer: Tesco, belt: New Look, shoes: Bertie
This seems to be my go to dress for family occasions where you want to look like you have made an effort but also know that there is going to be lots of nice food- although I would usually avoid a drop waist, this one seems to skim my food baby nicely ;)


Another day, another backless dress!


The colours on this dress were described as looking like a daffodil, like custard and the inside of a Crème Egg, perfect for my new-found love for the colour yellow


I love the tiny pleats and the contrasting sleeves. I never thought I would be a fan of either yellow or leopard print but here I am wearing both in one outfit... blogging has certainly taken me out of my comfort zone! 


Worn with my 'Miss Piggy' shoes... the perfect chunky heel!


Outtake of the day: trying to twirl and looking like a fool...


The best part of Easter for me though has to be the Easter Egg hunt, you're never too old for hunting chocolate right?!

What did you do at Easter? Do you like Easter egg hunts?

Even though the shoes and blazer are the same tonal family I probably wouldn't have thought to team that blazer with the dress, but it's lovely! I especially love the shoes.

That dress is so beautiful on you, Maria. It's absolutely gorgeous, and the chunky heels are a perfect partner. Chunky heels are definitely my new best friend.

I have to admit, I've never been on an Easter Egg hunt. We don't exactly mark Easter, unless the yearly effort at making Hot Cross Buns counts. Up until this year, it was always an unmitigated disaster, but we're now the proud owners of a mixer with a dough hook and it actually made the world of difference. We did still lose patience half way through and turn the dough into a Chinese Round, but at least we had something edible at the end. More than edible actually, it was really nice. :)

Beyond that, there's just the tradition of me trading in all other Easter chocolates I'm given to my Mum in return for Mini Eggs. My Mum is adamant that Easter Egg chocolate tastes different but I can't tell the difference. I'll happily wrestle a gorilla for Mini Eggs though. :)
