Jesus resurrected from the dead, the Avengers are going to resurrect the fallen this weekend (at least I hope they do), and now I’m resurrecting pastels back into season 🙌🏻 I hope everyone had a very blessed Easter weekend! I certainly did, it’s one of my top favorite holidays! Probably my fourth, with Christmas, 4th of July and Thanksgiving being the top three. I love celebrating this special day of the year by attending church, spending time with my family, appreciating the beautiful spring weather, and finally having whatever I gave up for Lent … which in my case was dessert! It’s been a few rough weeks for my sweet tooth y’all, but my love for Jesus made it worth it!
Easter is the perfect way to ring in spring aka pastel season! This lavender purple turtleneck from Target (designed by Wild Fable) is a perfect way to bring pastels back into season. I didn’t wear it on Easter, but it can be worn on the holiday with a cute classy skirt or nice, chic pants! It’s not the best thing to wear in the warmer weather, but the cropped bottom definitely makes it easier on the more mild days. I will admit that it was in the high 70s when I took these pictures and I was definitely sweating … but hey, it’s either take them now or take them never!
I found this pullover when it was in full stock back in early March. It was around $30, which is a pretty good deal (like most of Target’s other product deals!) I decided not to buy it at the time though (even though I really wanted to) and instead wait till it was put on sale. I ended up making the right choice after all! I went back early April and decided to see if it was still available, and thankfully it was … in the CLEARANCE SECTION! And guess what? It was only $12! What. A. STEAL!
I got it in a size small, and thankfully it didn’t look super short. My mom loved it when I showed her, she said it looked super chic, feminine and trendy … and she’s absolutely right! Unfortunately, I don’t believe this mock neck is in full stock anymore. However, you might be able to find a few sizes left in the clearance section where I found mine. You should definitely buy it if you find one, the material and cheap price is so worth it!
There’s a lot of different ways to style this sweater. With the warmer weather, you could wear cute denim skirts or shorts. My favorite way to style it, on a cooler day, is with my favorite boyfriend ripped jeans from American Eagle and tan booties from Anthropologie. I did not wear these jeans for Easter Sunday obviously, and I wouldn’t recommend wearing them for the holiday. It can get a little annoying when your grandparents see you and ask, “Are you aware that there are holes in your jeans?” 😂
