What I Wore: Easter Sass!

Oh, this year is just flying by!  I can't believe Easter came around so swiftly.  We are still having pretty dreary weather here in the Pacific Northwest; BUT the weather man was WRONG Easter weekend!

My sister-in-law's family invited us over for an Easter brunch.  It was such a lovely day visiting with everyone and playing with the kiddos.


I was so excited about the sun being out, I painted my toenails and broke out the capri pants.  Kiyonna sent me this beautiful Abby Twist Front Top in leopard pint.  I couldn't wait to wear it in the fabulous weather.




The Abby top is a similar style to the lovely blue Trina Top I wore last month.  It has a great deep V-neck, empire ruching, and flows over my curves while hiding the parts I want to hide.

The flutter sleeves are fantastic and a wonderful length for me.  Where the Trina top was a jersey-knit, the Abby is a polyester/spandex blend.  The material has a little bit of stretch to it which lends it that extra comfy-ness no matter your size.




I love the print too.  It doesn't seem too loud or over-the-top and looks really classy and rich in person.  If you are a bit print shy, this may be a great way to step out of your comfort zone. In addition to looking so fabulous in person, the color is gorgeous too.  It is a bit more burgundy in person than it photographs - still a wonderful color.

The Abby Twist Front Top also comes in black, purple, a deep blue, and a teal/turquoise.  This top is GREAT for spring and summer and any occasion. 







For extra reference, I am 5'9" and wear this top in a 4x (26/28)
