I’m really looking forward to Easter this year now that Wyatt is nearly two. He’s at such a fun age, talking SO much (I almost died the other day when he exclaimed “Daddy’s birthday!” from the back seat). He’s also constantly on the move.
Because we were collaborating with Cory Christopher on a special Easter project, Wyatt and I really wanted to step up our Easter brunch outfits. (Did you see the Easter brunch grown-up table and the toddler table we designed? We had so much fun putting both together.)
I’m often drawn to bright colours, especially this time of year. I decided to mix a long floral skirt with a badass, leather-look jacket. I love the balance of romance and rock and roll. This skirt is a real commitment, with a ton of tiny buttons to do up, but it has amazing flow and I love the slit in the front.
I picked up my Free People skirt at Saks Off 5th (it seems I’ve been shopping there a lot lately!). The black option doesn’t seem to be available online anymore but the pink one is cute too (and on sale). My Pink Martini open-toe booties are almost half price right now and my Zara leather-look jacket from a few seasons ago has an updated version. This one from Guess is almost identical (and on sale). I knotted my white Zara blouse in the front to give it more character, and to give me more shape. This blouse is pretty much the same.
My purse is from Duval Canada, which is made in my hometown of Edmonton, Alberta. Designer Esther Duval hand makes each one herself. She’s also created a perfect leather choker. Until May 31, get 10% off storewide at Duval by using the code Kari10. Shop here.
Wyatt’s Easter Outfit
I love my little boy in a bowtie. I picked up his whole outfit, except the shoes, at Carter’s Osh Kosh (every piece is on sale right now). His shirt and pants are both size 2T.
