Easter Sunday | Baby Pink Trench + Spring Ombré Shift Dress

Happy Easter! And what an appropriate way to celebrate Easter than with my outfit below. So there’s a story behind this dress that I bought late fall last year. It was also around the time that I was watching the series finale of Dexter and the character “Hannah” happened to be wearing this dress in one of the episode.

I fell in love and thus became my search to find the dress. At the time, it was pretty hard to find especially for the price I was looking for. I found it on Saks at a great sales price, but unfortunately my size was not available. I’m so thankful for Saks email alert to give you notice when the size becomes available and make a mad dash to the website to put in an order, because otherwise, I would not have been able to call this dress mine. Goes to show that patience can definitely be rewarding.

What made this dress particularly interesting to me to make the hunt worthwhile were several reasons: 1) I love the sleek lines of a shift dress 2) Hello, ombre…need I say more? 3) Absolutely adore pockets, enough said. Unfortunately, the color is no longer available, but you can find the style “Carpreena” in other colors like this awesome yellow here.

In terms of petite sizing, I ordered size 0 which fits me fairly well at the top, but the bottom flares out a bit at the hip. If I was picky, I could have it slim down a bit, but haven’t decided. In meantime, the A-line of the dress works for now.

As for the trench, I’ve had it more than three years (?) now and probably the only one that I didn’t have to hem up the sleeves, because it was more of a cropped sleeve look. Oy, works for me! I love the peek of the floral lining on this trench, which makes it a bit unique as well and perfect for spring.
