Easter Eggs – The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book

collage of Easter Eggs outfits

April is the month of Easter and of Easter Eggs! And they come in all sort of colours! What better way to celebrate it with some very colourful outfits. You may think Easter is all about pastels, you might have a association with tie-dye, with gold, with purple and yellow, Easter is colour! Look outside! Everything is in bloom and it’s all green and yellow and purple here. So if Easter Eggs can’t inspire you…..

Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!

What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?

It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc. But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!

So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Easter Eggs!

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edge

Easter Eggs inspired trousers
My tie dye genie pants are definitely a Good Buy and all the bright vibrant colors really really remind me of dying Easter eggs!

Marsha of Marsha in the Middle

 

Easter Eggs colours in a outfit

 

I bought this lavender pinafore last year (I think).  I’ve featured it twice on my blog and love how I can use it with something over it or something under it!  It’s one of my favorite shades of lavender…that nice grey undertone!!!

 

Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of Style

pastel coloured outfit

Since I shared a bright-colored outfit with Shelbee, I’ll include more of a pastel one with you. I don’t usually pair a salmon with a light pink like this but it turned out great.
Joanne of Slices of Life
Easter Eggs inspired looks
As soon as I thought of Easter Eggs, I thought of this sweater.  Between the pretty color and the pretty detailing on it, it soon became a favorite sweater of mine.  It has been such a good buy!  Since early spring is still pretty chilly here I paired my sweater with a gray undershirt and a pair of my favorite light wash jeans with matching gray booties.
Jacqui of Mummabstylish
blue maxi dress
Hope this M & S tea dress fits the bill. I wore it for dinner at the Ritz and felt amazing in it. Teamed with cream boots and matching bag.
Salazar of 14 Shades of Grey
Gingham green skirt
Here’s my “Good Buy” outfit – I don’t celebrate Easter, but the crocheted top with its pastel flowers and the gingham skirt just really screams “Easter” to me. I’m looking forward to seeing what everybody sends!
Easter Eggs outfits
Here’s a “pre-Easter” photo taken last night at a “Girls’ Night Out” with my granddaughters (Taylor {16} and Campbell {14-1/2}).   Flowers on my jeans and “cold shoulder” cut-outs on my long-sleeves (but you can’t really see those).
It was at a “girly” restaurant and the theme was actually “pink & white”, not Easter eggs.  But, I do LOVE the jeans b/c the pastel colors in the embroidered flowers go with so many Spring tops (plus they have some stretch in them ~ and ankle length, so good with sandals and some heel ~ and can be dressier).   In Texas, “dressier” means jeans that are a little darker and no rips (haha)
Michelle of My Bijou Life
Tie -Dye outfit
I don’t have many things that qualify as Easter colors, and nothing pastel, but I think this tie-dye works. It was definitely a good buy. I love everything about it – the colors, the fabric, and the design.
And finally my Easter Eggs outfit
pastel blue blouse
Easter sounds like pastels to me, or gold! This is my only pastel outfit, it’s not a colour that I wear well, but I do love it. The blouse I already sold, but I love the trousers so much. Read about those here. Haven’t worn it for a long time, but it is still in my closet, have to see if it still fits!

May’s theme will be: Bird prints!

And now hop over to Shelbee’s blog to see what the other fashion bloggers are wearing!

    I love everyone’s outfits! Michelle’s tie dye is super fun! I am really digging Marsha’s and Jodie’s outfits, too! And how fun that Cindy joined with her beautiful girls!

    Happy Easter everyone!

      Yes I think it’s more a turquoise. The blouse is more pastel.

  12. 15th April 2022 / 18:22

    I love all the interpretations of the Easter egg theme, which frankly speaking had me stumped. I don’t wear pastels either by the way. I keep on trying but they just do not work on me! Happy Easter! xxx
